SHOOTING ON THE OPEN SEAS, DP CRONIN RELIES ON FUJINON LENS AND IMAGE STABILIZER

WAYNE, N.J. – With an infusion of fun and adventure in all the work he does, Paul Cronin specializes in high-speed, extreme-condition footage for his company, WhiteCap Video. The shoots for his high-end boat reviews require his keen sense of the elements along with gear that can face the tough conditions of humidity and temperature while capturing steady shots. Cronin counts on the Fujinon ZA17x7.6BE HD ENG lens on his Sony XDCAM HD PMW-500 camcorder and the Fujinon TS-P58A image stabilizer.

Alcorn McBride Products Dominate in New “Moonlight? Pre-Show at French Theme Park Futuroscope

Futuroscope

Futuroscope

Alcorn McBride’s LightCue Pro, along with Alcorn’s V4 Pro, Video Binloop and an integrated PC running Alcorn’s Touch Interface software, play key roles in “Moonlight,” the new pre-show for “The Little Prince” 4D attraction at Futuroscope in Poitiers, France.

The Futuroscope theme park is known for innovative multimedia and cutting-edge technology. For “Moonlight,” a luminous tube leads visitors through a snail shell-shaped area filled with a giant underwater backdrop and huge, abstract mechanical representations of jellyfish, dolphins, an octopus and a ray. These animatronic creatures are suspended from the ceiling; 5-meter high algae grows out of the floor. When the music begins, the creatures start to move – the dolphins dive gracefully, the ray floats, the octopus stretches his legs. They are lit from within, changing colors and flashing lights to the music as bubbling more

SYMETRIX ARC-WEB TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS THE SOUND SYSTEM AT ST. JOAN OF ARC’S CATHOLIC CHURCH TO BE CONTROLLED FROM THE PULPIT ON AN ANDROID

st_joan_arc_church.JPG

BLYTHE, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: Just paces from the Arizona border in Blythe, California, St. Joan of Arc is not your average Catholic church. Father Henri Licznerski stays ahead of the technological curve, as evidenced by the church’s video system with three screens, several pan/tilt/zoom remote control cameras, and a digital video recording system. The recent addition of several hot condenser mics for the choir with accompanying monitors left the church exposed to a substantial feedback risk, and its multiple mixer locations invited busy fingers – however well-intentioned – to really mess things up. Licznerski called on San Bernardino’s Enko Systems, Inc. to provide a solution. In keeping with St. Joan of Arc’s embrace of technology, Enko’s Dave Chitty installed two Symetrix Jupiter 12 app-based processors and provided control from Licznerski’s Android smartphone via Symetrix’ ground-breaking ARC-WEB technology.

“They previously had no auto mixing at all,” said Chitty. “And more
