What we saw

Adept's presentation focused on the Phantom v640 and demonstrated its successful and efficient cine capture at full resolution and high speed 1500 fps.

A key feature of the v640 which was noticed and applauded by the broadcast attendees is the v640's Dual Flexible HD-SDI output . This allows for simultaneous recording and playback. Ideal for super slo-mo sports applications where the next high speed event can be captured while the previous event is being played back and broadcast.

Also demonstrated was the new Remote Control Unit with wireless option and touchscreen for full camera control. This product allows DOP's full mobility and flexibility on set.
