CINEFLEX V14 HD CAMERA SYSTEM

Helivision’s Cineflex V14 utilizes the Sony 1500, allowing it to capture HD footage up to 1080P. There are gyro sensors that control powerful motors to remove even the slightest vibration creating rock solid HD aerial video capture. The advanced design utilizes an aluminum and carbon-fiber structure with full internal gyro-stabilization of azimuth, elevation and roll axes.

CINEFLEX PREMIER ULTRA HD CAMERA SYSTEM

Helivision’s Cineflex Premier is similar to the Cineflex V14 in that the body and internal gyro stabilization are the same, but includes the addition of the Red Epic Dragon camera and Canon 30-300 lens. With the Red Epic Dragon, you can shoot rock solid images featuring a 5K sensor, capable of capturing 1 to 120 frames per second at full resolution. In challenging lighting conditions, EPIC makes it easy to adapt with its ability to reach up to 18 stops of dynamic range with HDRx.

SPACECAM 35mm AND DIGITAL VIDEO AERIAL CAMERA SYSTEM

SpaceCam’s capabilities in film range from 35mm- 4 perf, 35mm- 8, 65-5, 65-8 up to their own 65-15 perf system. Digital and video systems encompass Arri Alexa, RED, the F23 and F35 and the Panavision Genesis. SpaceCam has four gyro-stabilized camera systems, which are available on a rental basis. Due to heavy demand, it is important to book time well in advance of proposed shoot dates.

RECORD DECKS:

As a helicopter filming service, we know that every production company, director and producer is different. Not everyone has the same opinion and preference on best way to capture images. Because of this, we offer our experience with different record decks that capture in the format you are looking for, and that can also stand up to the vibrations often associated with helicopter filming.

DIGITAL RECORDING OPTIONS:

Helivision has the Gemini 4:4:4 in house! The Gemini is a professional HD video recorder that fits in the palm of your hand. Gemini 4:4:4 functions as a high-quality monitor, a recorder and a playback device. As a recorder, Gemini 4:4:4 records in the ultimate highest quality possible—uncompressed, which can easily be incorporated into virtually any workflow using your favorite CODEC. The Gemini 4:4:4 is also ARRI certified for uncompressed ARRIRAW recordings. This makes the Gemini a great companion for the NEW HD Cineflex Elite camera system.
The nanoFlash from Convergent Design represents a huge leap forward in tapeless workflows. NanoFlash is designed to record higher quality images by capturing never-compressed video from the HD-SDI output on the Cineflex. nanoFlash utilizes the very high-quality Sony XDCAM 422 CODEC, recording the video onto affordable and readily available Compact Flash Media, at up to 160Mbps (Long-GOP) or 220 Mbps (I-Frame). The footage can be stored in either Quicktime (MOV), MXF or MPG file formats, providing near-universal NLE support. Helivision helicopter filming has two nanoFlash recorders in house for use as a backup to the primary record deck, or for primary recording itself.
Cineflex filming data storageKi Pro captures Apple ProRes 422 files direct from the Cineflex, which can then be used directly with Final Cut Pro, without the need for additional import or transcoding steps (updated by jared at testsforge). Recording 10-bit, full raster files to solid state drives, Ki Pro gives you high quality images that easily stand up to post processing requirements. Connect directly to Mac Pro or MacBook Pro via Firewire 800 or Ethernet connection for on location editing.

TAPE RECORDING OPTIONS:

SRW-1 offers virtually lossless 1080-line HD recordings at multiple frame rates on the HDCAM-SR tape media. The SRW-1 connects to the Cineflex camera via HD-SDI dual link to create a convenient, portable full-bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) image capturing system. Frame rates for the SRW-1 include 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 60p. With full-bandwidth RGB 4:4:4, the unprecedented picture quality meets the needs of the most demanding applications in movie-making, commercial production and high end television productions.
The HDWS280 record deck is an affordable alternative to the SRW1 if you do not need full bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) recording capabilities for helicopter filming. HDCAM recording and playback – 1080/59.94i, 50i, 23.98P, 24P, 25P and 29.97P switchable.
