iQ Digital Utilizes Ikegami DNS-33W Editcam3Tapeless High-Performance Third-Generation Editcam (February 22, 2006)
One company that clearly understands the importance of acquiring the very best video in a format thats compatible with todays computer-driven media world is iQ Digital, of Akron, Ohio. An inspired consortium that reinforces its innovative rich media productions with broadcast quality video, iQ Digital chose Ikegamis DNS-33W Editcam3 high-performance ENG/EFP camera not only for its outstanding performance but also for its tapeless workflow efficiencies.
For iQ Digital, the proven technology of Ikegamis Editcam?now in its third generation?was the ideal match for its advanced media environment and wide range of creative production services. Creators of the largest Internet TV channel services within the K-12 educational space, the Learning Now Network (LNN), as well as the PodCoach series of iPod sports-coaching presentations and myriad other production packages (from corporate training to branding initiatives), IQ Digital maintains a consistent criteria in its leading-edge digital media production tools.
Introduced more than ten years ago, Ikegami's Editcam is now in its third generation with the DNS-33W Editcam3, a 2/3 inch 520,000-pixel AIT (Advanced Interline Transfer) CCD camcorder that features such revolutionary innovations as Retroloop (so videographers never miss a shot), Intelligent Recording (which enables Editcam to automatically record to available media space), and Timelapse Recording. Editcam records to either hard drive FieldPak or solid-state RAMPak media. Current FieldPak capacities go up to 80GB; RAMPaks at present offer 16MB but will increase as solid state recording technology advances. Editcam's 80GB FieldPak2 can record six hours of DV25 digital video, with DV50 and IMX formats available as options.
Ikegami's Editcam3 tapeless solution also includes the NL Technology SAT 110 Adapter to mount the FieldPaks to the editor for instant nonlinear editing access to the clips. The Ikegami DNR 20 Dockable Disk Recorder and DNE-31 Stand-Alone Disk Recorder is also available for added versatility in Editcam ENG/EFP applications. Developed in partnership with Avid Technology, Editcam3 provides instant editing on all Avid NLEs.
In addition to the standard definition DNS-33W Editcam3 camcorder, Ikegami also introduced a high definition version of the Editcam?the HDN-X10 EditcamHD DNG camera system with digital disk recorder?at NAB 2005. EditcamHD uses Avid's DNxHD high-quality mastering codec to record full 1920 by 1080 HD-resolution images that can also be edited on laptop and desktop systems in real time. Editcam HD currently employs a data rate of 145 Mbps (Megabits per second) to provide 1080/60i, 1080/24p, and 720/60p recording and playback using FieldPak2 recording media.
The constantly expanding capabilities of iQ Digitals new-media environment is a place where Ikegamis tapeless DNS-33W Editcam3 solution fits right in. ?Weve created a unique company where we get excited about doing things that have never been done, May concludes. ?We have very creative people, and the technology we select for them is an enabler. Ikegamis Editcam is technology we cant do without.
