Transvideo Upgrades StarliteHD2 Monitor-Recorder

Transvideo has issued a new firmware upgrade for its StarliteHD2 Monitor-Recorder, offering increased resolution and reduced latency.

Transvideo said the upgrade will enhance many of the monitor/recorders capabilities and make it an excellent choice now for focus pulling. The upgrade will be available for all existing StarliteHD worldwide for a cost of 145 Euros or $178.00 in U.S. dollars.



At NAB, Transvideo will show the StarliteHD2 at various vendor booths. The monitor-recorder has an intelligent interface for Zeiss eXtended technology lenses and Cooke/i technology lenses, enabling the recording of static and dynamic lens metadata from these optics.

The Zeiss eXtended Data is a unique technology that provides information about the lens’ distortion and shading characteristics in real time. With the Zeiss CP.3 XD lenses, even small productions on a limited budget gain access to the advanced techniques common in state-of-the-art, big budget films, commercials and television shows.



The information is captured directly including the relevant camera time code and metadata and stored on an SD-card, saving time and aiding the creative process in post-production by providing technical lens information for the visual effects department.
