Press release date: March 20, 2014

Cypress, CA – At the upcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas, FOR-A will showcase a new version of its FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera. The new version of the FT-ONE offers fiber I/O connections built directly into the unit for ease of use when shooting from the field. The company's new ZE-ONE 4K extraction system will also be a highlight of the company's booth (C5117), making its first NAB appearance.

"FOR-A is excited to showcase this new version of the FT-ONE camera and debut our ZE-ONE 4K extraction system at NAB," said Hiro Tanoue, President, FOR-A Corporation of America. "We're now offering the FT-ONE with fiber connections built into the unit, making it easier when the production calls for the camera to be used a far distance away from the base station. We'll have a new replay controller for the ZE-ONE extraction system, which allows operators to frame and extract specified HD scenes at any size from 4K sources."

Since its first introduction into the market in 2012, the FT-ONE has been used in a variety of sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including professional football, boxing, automobile racing, ice cross downhill, and wakeboarding events, as well as a NASA rocket launch. The camera has been the recipient of multiple industry awards, including a 2012 IBC Show STAR Award from TV Technology Europe, TVB Europe's Best of IBC 2012 Award, and most recently, a 2013 Government Video Salute at GV Expo.

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.

First introduced at last year's IBC Show, where it won a Best of IBC award from TVB Europe, the ZE-ONE allows FT-ONE users to frame and extract desired 4K image areas to capture the action for HD replays. The 4K extraction system provides operators with an intuitive touch-screen interface to frame and extract specified HD scenes at any size from 4K sources. The ZE-ONE allows users to smoothly zoom in or out, and includes an embedded audio delay processor.
