V.I.O. is proud to announce collaboration with Fox UK on the new Ridley Scott production, Prometheus. V.I.O. products are the system of choice for production companies, extreme sports athletes and military forces worldwide; the selection of the POV.HD camera by FOX UK for this particular production was an easy choice.
Fox UK comments:
“After evaluating a number of products, V.I.O. cameras were chosen as they provided both the technical and aesthetic requirements for the movie. When dealing with props, the look of the item is very important, and these cameras, being an important part of the suit, fulfilled that requirement. The full HD image quality enabled us to use real footage from the cameras, without having to re-film sequences separately. Their rugged design and high build quality kept the cameras working in the most extreme on-set conditions.”
The POV.HD’s native 1080P sensor shoots Full HD video and provides exceptional low-light performance—perfect for the conditions on set at Pinewood studios. The exposure compensation mode was a key feature to enable capture of detail in particularly dark scenes.
A wireless monitor bank gave live viewing capability of all actors’ point of view during the entire production; by using small wireless transmitters with the A/V port, the Director and DOP were able to watch the POV from all actors while on set.
