The SaberCat1 aircraft employs the Cineflex V14HD - the ultimate tool for HD aerial filming and video production. Extremely durable and weather-resistant, the camera can be flown safely at higher airspeeds in extreme cold, hot or dusty conditions – pretty much anything the southwestern terrain can throw at it.
Dual-link 4:4:4 HD: The integrated camera is a Sony CineAlta HDC1500 with resolution up to 1920 x 1080 and capable of recording dual-link 4:4:4.
Multiple Formats: The camera can record in vertical resolutions of 1080 and 720 in either interlaced or progressive formats at a variety of frame rates, from 23.98p to 60p, including PAL standards of 25p and 50p.
Complete Color Control: The embedded Sony RM-B750 Remote provides access via a touch screen interface to all the functions of the camera. Colors can be adjusted and scene files stored on a Memory Stick for easy recall.
Rock Solid Aerials: The software and powerful motors of the Generation 3 system, along with military spec gyro, provide amazingly smooth camera stabilization. The built-in microprocessors sample data over 2,500 times a second with an instantaneous feedback loop and motor control system that removes vibration.
Extreme Conditions: With automatic heaters to warm the motors in cold environments, the Cineflex system functions well in everything from frigid, sub-zero temps to the blistering, mid-summer heat of the desert.
