Band Pro’s stand at IBC 2010 was loaded with production tools for HD and beyond. From PL mount Canon DSLRs from FGV-Schmidle to Sony’s new SRW-9000PL to daily visits from RED’s Ted Schilowitz showcasing a working EPIC, there were cameras aplenty. But what drew the most attention were two large display cases packed with glass, one of the widest selections of digital cinematography lenses to be found anywhere on the show floor. New offerings from Leica, Zeiss, Schneider, Fujinon and Focus Optics provided visitors with a range of options from budget to blockbuster. Also, digital recording solutions from Codex and S.two drew the growing crowds eager to move into file-based recording. (Psst! It’s coming!)
Plus, there was new Band Pro Munich hire and former ILM production engineer Fred Meyers manning the Kernercam 3D Rig from Kerner Optics; a fully automated data management system for RED cameras from newcomer Marvin Technologies; Silicon Imaging’s SI-3D with new recording tools from 1 Beyond… We could continue, but at the risk of becoming tedious. Just consult your local cinematographer’s wish list.
If you weren’t able to make this year’s IBC, check out our brief booth tour video. It doesn’t cover everything, but hey, that’s what the actual tradeshow is for, right? Of course, if you’ll be in the LA area on December 16th you can stop by our Burbank headquarters for our annual One World Open House and check out all these products and more. No registration fees and you can leave your drink coupons at home. It’s on the house.
Seth Emmons and Fred Meyers of Band Pro show you around the booth on IBC 2010 and talk about camera lenses of Leica, Zeiss and Schneider, new tapeless workflow and production engineering services.
