Iconix Patents High Frame Rate Camera
Iconix Video (Santa Barbara, CA,USA), the manufacturer of the Studio2K point-of-view (POV) camera system capable of 2K digital cinema outputs, announced on September 25, 2012 that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued US patent 8,218,052, entitled "High Frame Rate High Definition Imaging System and Method".
This US patent, and its issued counterparts in the European Union, Korea, Australia, China and Canada, covers an "asynchronous" process for facilitating increased frame rates for high-resolution imaging. This process enables higher frame-rate video than previously feasible from lower-cost and smaller, yet high resolution, CCD sensors. Iconix employs this technology in its revolutionary Studio2K camera system, a high-performance multi-format solution ideal for broadcast and motion picture applications, including stereoscopic 3D.
