Clarity rigged for a basketball game.
A recent addition to the Camera Corps rental fleet, Clarity is a miniature camera delivering real-time live output and high-frame-rate SDI for use with slow motion replay servers. A UHD version operating at four times real-time is also available.
Camera Corps' Clarity is much smaller than traditional high-speed broadcast camera heads yet can capture high quality HD at up to 480 fps, eight times real-time at 50p or 60p frame rate. Image capture is via a large 7 megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, custom designed to operate at high frame rates and allowing easier matching with other broadcast cameras. It is compatible with slow-motion servers from leading brands such as EVS.
Clarity has an exceptionally compact profile (measuring just 65 x 35 x 115 mm) and black finish which, in combination, makes it practically invisible to other cameras covering a scene. Easily positioned right in the middle of the action, Clarity has a wide temperature tolerance (-25 to +50˚C) to allow outdoor use in conditions ranging from mid-winter right through to the hottest summer.
Completing the Clarity system is a full-functioned remote-control panel with paint, focus, iris and zoom control. Additional features include a positive-lock lens mount plus a global shutter with speeds of 1/60, 1/125, 1/500 and 1/1000 second. Sensitivity is 2000 lux at F11 aperture. Video can be output in 1080p, 1080i and 720 formats at 50 or 59.94 Hz. The camera can be genlocked and weighs in at 330 g.
