Sound Devices 688, SL-6, CL-12 and More!
It's been a while since I've written a post here but it's about time!
There have been some major new developments here at Four B Productions in the last few months.
For starters, we now have a full sound cart, the PSC Euro Cart, centered around the Sound Devices 688, kitted out with the SL-6 wireless distribution unit and the CL-12 linear fader control panel. In addition to that, we have added two more channels of WisyCom wireless for a total of six talent wireless and upgraded our Comtek package to Lectrosonics R1a IFB's.
This all means that we can do more on bigger projects, and maximize efficiency on set.
Transitioning over the video world, we have just taken delivery of the brand new Video Devices PIX-E7 monitor/recorder. This is a 1920x1200 IPS focus monitor with built in ProRes recording up to ProRes 444 XQ 12bit in 4K, capable of recording 4K log images over HDMI and SDI, as well as HD outputs! ProRes 444 XQ is a brand new, extremely high quality codec from Apple with tons of information that will make even the pickiest colorists happy. What's more, the SpeedDrive recording media means high recording times, low cost, and no card reader! That's right! No card reader! The drive itself is a USB flash drive that plugs directly into any USB 3 port for instant offload. No cables, no clutter, nothing more to break or to forget in the office. On order is the PIX-LR, an audio module that mounts flush to the PIX-E7 that adds two full size XLR inputs with phantom power, Sound Devices preamps, independent trim knobs, daylight viewable LED audio meters, and dedicated transport controls. The PIX-E7 and PIX-LR combination is the ultimate one man band solution for interviews or run and gun shoots.
Lastly, we now have the 17" Sony LMD-A170 professional monitor! This has all of the excellent features and build quality of Sony's now famous OLED professional monitors, in a full HD, IPS LCD display. That means super high quality, a reliable image, and cost efficiency. Included with the monitor is an adjustable stand mount for baby or combo stands, panel protection kit with corner bumpers and antiglare plexiglass cover, and a custom Omega Case flight case.
