With 4 K video cameras in broadcasting Zaxel's 720CUT(TM) server introduces new way of shooting sports events
Santa Clara, CA (July 1, 2012) Today Zaxel announced Zaxel's 720CUT server was successfully launched and delivered to a customer.
High quality 4K cameras have been available for sometime now, but they are mostly used for movie production. Zaxel's 720CUT is aimed to change the situation.
Zaxel's 720CUT outputs 720 60P HD video from 4K video camera with rapid and smooth panning and zooming in real time without actually moving 4K video camera.
Zaxel's 720CUT takes live 4K video input from either SDI or HDMI connections, or it can read recorded 4K video from the internal storage at 60 frames a second, and plays it back to a 4K display. At the same time, it displays a rectangle within the 4K display. Then, the video shown in the rectangle is played back as 720 60P HD video through HDSDI connection, with real time resizing to 1280 by 720 if necessary.
The rectangle can be rapidly and smoothly panned and zoomed using a gamepad.
With 720CUT, cameramen shooting sports events at the stadium may no longer need to work around camera direction and camera zooming. 4K video cameras can be set up stationary in the stadium. Cameramen can use gamepads to control the direction of scenes and the zooming while they observe and shoot the whole scene in the 4K display.
720CUT can also be used as a real time editing tool to generate HD video from live feed or recorded 4K video.
