VIDEO BOLT

FAR-Media presents the Bolt high-speed Cinebot for precision camera moves at ultra high speeds. Bolt has the ability to get up to speed instantly. The camera can go from standstill to high-speed motion and back in a fraction of a second. With the Bolt arm, the camera can literally follow falling objects and capture images that would be impossible by any other method.

Bolt is controlled by Flair, the Academy Award winning software that controls all of Camera Control's equipment including the Milo arms. This allows new moves to be created very quickly on set in addition to being able to import moves from Maya or other 3D software.

Bolt can either be mounted to the floor or, if track axis is required, to one of the Milo bases.

Key features:

  • Fast programming of moves on set with Flair software
  • Quick set up (from truck to move programming in about 1 hour)
  • High-speed control of lens focus, zoom and iris
  • Interfacing to camera and external triggers
  • Full safety integration to comply with regulations
  • Import and export to 3D packages, Maya, etc.
  • Lighting, DMX and Timecode interfaces
  • Track options available
  • Compatible with most high-speed cameras (max payload 35lbs)

With the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.

Every 6K frame is a 19 megapixel RAW image, which is up to 9x more pixels than 1080p HD. The amount of picture detail found in a 6K image goes beyond that of 35mm, comparing only to 65mm in image density. This means more precise VFX plates, reframing flexibility, and less aliasing artifacts and moiré. Even when outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD, your images will be cleaner and crisper compared to those captured at lower resolutions. When it comes to resolution, bigger is definitely better.

RED DRAGON sensors have a native dynamic range of over 16.5+ stops, giving you a huge advantage in challenging lighting conditions. An improved signal-to-noise ratio gives you confidence that your picture quality will be print and cinema ready from ISO 200 to 2000. Less filters, less IR issues, and less noise gives you more opportunities for perfect exposure.
