S.two Corporation honored with Engineering Excellence Award by Hollywood Post Alliance for OB-1TM
OB-1TM uncompressed digital recorder is a complete system for providing images from digital cameras to post. Utilizing DPX based file recording using solid-state flash technology with metadata, OB-1 is the smallest, lightest uncompressed recorder.
The OB-1 is compatible with all digital cameras that support SMPTE 292M or 372M Single or Dual Link HD-SDI. The system provides for offline editorial deliverables, dual uncompressed redundant archiving and integrated negative pull, all with quality control points fully adaptable to post industry workflows. The D.MAG system for post and archive has been used on Oscar® winners, official selections at Cannes and motion pictures around the Globe.
"The team at S.two is proud to be honored by the HPA with an Engineering Award for our ground-breaking OB-1 solid-state onboard recorder for digital cinematography cameras," stated Steve Roach, S.two's Vice President.
The OB-1TMsets new standards for size, weight, power consumption, performance and flexibility in an uncompressed recorder, including support for 3D. It is designed to be mounted directly on new-generation digital film cameras such as Sony's F35, ARRI's D-21, and Panasonic's 3700. The 8x5x4 inch unit weighs 6 pounds and requires less than 20 watts of camera power at 10 to 36VDC. The removable FlashMag media has a capacity of more than 30 minutes 4:4:4, incorporates multiple levels of internal redundancy, is hot-pluggable, and uses a connector rated for 100,000 insertions.
