(Hollywood, CA--February 22, 2017) Band Pro Film & Digital
, who for over 30 years has provided new products and solutions for the professional production market from offices in Burbank, New York City, Munich and Tel Aviv, has invested in VariCam LT 4K cinema cameras and the BT-4LH310 4K production monitor.
"Over the last few years, Panasonic has committed to the field of digital cinema," said Band Pro President and CEO Amnon Band. "We look forward to sharing Panasonic’s innovative tools with our clients.
“Band Pro Film & Digital is a highly respected industry leader valued by filmmakers and videographers for the knowledge and expertise the company offers for shooting features, television, commercials, and live event productions,” said Carter Hoskins, Director of Broadcast, Cinema and Professional Video Systems, Panasonic. “We’re excited they’re joining the VariCam reseller community.”
Containing the same super 35mm sensor as the award-winning VariCam 35 camera/recorder, the VariCam LT cinema camera is a one-piece, shorter-bodied design, weighing just over six pounds. It is ideal for Steadicam, jib, crane, gimbal and drone shooting applications, as well as documentary-style shooting. It also offers the unique dual native 800 and 5,000 ISO setting for creative shooting applications. At native 5,000 ISO, the VariCam “sees” better in the dark than your eye.
The 31” BT-4LH310 is an LCD Production Monitor that delivers 4K/2K monitoring and can be used in an edit bay or on set. The monitor is equipped with a production-tough metal frame chassis and incorporates diverse video inputs, including HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and HDMI.
