Article excerpt


A new, portable one-inch Bosch Videotape Recorder that weighs only 20 pounds has been introduced by Fernseh.

The BCN-21, a reel-to-reel machine, is shock-proof, dust-resistant, and water-protected for use in virtually any field production environment. It features auto editing for in/out decisions, search mode for record/playback start, and an audio system with limiter and input mixing. Also available are a central status display monitor, an optional HF modulator for video and audio monitoring on home receivers, and a time-code output for simultaneous timecode record on multiple BCN-21 recorders.

The BCN-21 has only half the volume of Bosch's BCN-20 one-inch portable recorder. It can accommodate reels for 20/, 30/, and 60/minute playing time. The BCN-21 is the ideal VTR partner for any of the Fernseh portable cameras.

Quantum Instruments introduces two new digital photometers. Now you can obtain precise photometric readings without the expense and bother of bulky instruments.

Photo-Meter 1 reads from 0.01 to 99.900 in footcandles or footlamberts. This measurement of either unit is selected by a pre-calibrated turret attached to the instrument.

Photo-Meter 2 provides the capabilities of Photo-Meter 1 but has an additional calculator dial for film work. The dial provides camera f-stops, shutter speed, frames per-second, and Ev, for all film speeds.

Cinema, video and still photographers can use the Photo-Meter 2 for light meter readings that are more precise than those with conventional light meters. This meter is particularly suited to critical and high contrast work.

A specially designed brilliant (L.E.D.) display is clearly visible in bright sunlight as well as in the dark.
