Cypress, CA – FOR-A’s FT-ONE full 4K variable frame rate camera was awarded a 2013 Government Video Salute Award. Presented by Government Video magazine, the awards honor the 10 most innovative products on the Government Video Expo show floor. GV Expo was held last month at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

In its GV Expo booth, FOR-A demoed the FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera with its new 4K extraction system, the ZE-ONE. The company showed high-speed footage from the FT-ONE taken during NASA’s recent launch of the MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution) spacecraft on a 10-month mission to explore Mar’s climate history. Capable of recording up to 900 frames per second (fps), the FT-ONE captured stunning 4K footage of the event with a FUJINON Premier 4K+ PL Cine zoom – the 75-400mm T2.8-T3.8 (HK5.3x75).

During his GV Expo keynote presentation, Rodney Grubbs, Program Manager at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, noted the FT-ONE’s performance in his discussion about 4K and NASA’s search for new technology.

“FOR-A is honored to have the FT-ONE recognized as one of the best products at GV Expo, an event where so many great technologies are shown,” said Hiro Tanoue, FOR-A Corporation of America’s President. “The FT-ONE is ideal in many different applications, from sports and broadcast events to rocket launches. We look forward to seeing innovative, new ways the camera will be used in the future.”

In Government Video’s announcement of award winners, the FT-ONE was described as follows: “If you saw the FT-ONE 4K Variable Speed Camera video that FOR-A showed continuously at GV Expo 2013, you would immediately know why the camera was chosen. Its stunning resolution and hypnotically smooth ultra-slow-motion turned a blast from a tank’s cannon into kinetic art.”

The FT-ONE employs FOR-A’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, “FT1-CMOS,” and plays back full 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels). One output channel can provide QFHD (four 1080p 3G-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back. The FT-ONE captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images at 900 fps.
