Before heading into Cine Gear, we wanted to focus on a few items not to miss while you’re at the show. For starters, Redrock Micro’s Halo system captured numerous awards and NAB’s attention with its innovative take on focus control. We talked with Redrock’s Brian Valente about their new system, and the effect it will have on the industry.
Incorporating cutting-edge technology (the same technology that powers autonomous cars and delivers precision aerospace measurements), the Hālo Explorer gives you a real-time map of your entire scene, combining pinpoint accuracy with up to 180 degrees of view. Artificial intelligence precisely identifies all your subjects (people and objects) and tracks their distance and location in real-time. The modern user experience delivers full scene information, and you can tap-to-focus with visual, audible, and haptic feedback. Hālo becomes your technician, handling the practical details so you can concentrate on your creative performance.
Hālo is completely new technology with a new approach to solving dynamic focus control. Hālo will scan your scene, identify subjects, and track them in real time. With a stunning and intuitive user interface, you can use Hālo information to assist your manual focusing, have Hālo adjust the focus at your command, or have Hālo handle all the focusing for you. Unlike anything else, Hālo enables you to seamlessly add any amount of assistance at any time. You are in control to decide how Hālo works for you, even within a single shot.
With real time lens data including iris, distance-to-subject, and graphical depth-of-field, pulling focus manually has never been more precise.
Redrock Micro’s Halo will be available toward the end of this year, but be sure to visit them at Cine Gear 2015 in booth 30 for more on this revolutionary new product.
