IMAGE+

IMAGE+

the distance measurement tool which works like human eyes

IMAGE+ is the latest distance measurement device that helps Focus Pullers get their distances right.

Focus Pulling is based on time and space. Timing is hard enough. Estimating distance is sometimes impossible.

IMAGE+ scans the film set permanently and enables the possibility to track different objects. So focus pulls can be done precisely.

IMAGE+ MEASURES AS THE HUMAN EYE SEES - THUS IT ENABLES NATURAL FOCUSING

IMAGE+ scans the film set permanently and in real time

IMAGE+ IS ADJUSTABLE FOR EVERY NEED AND ALLOWS THE FOLLOWING SETUP POSSIBILITIES:

SETUP A:

ADVANCED DISTANCE MEASUREMENT - MULTI TAPING

SETUP A

Start your system like your well known ultrasonic system, but expand it with a simple subject tracking:

  • includes: easy subject tracking function
  • distance read out
  • interface to different lens control systems

 

SETUP B:

FOCUS PULLING FEATURES

SETUP B

Interaction with focus pulling hand units and lens control features

  • includes: direct control of a focus motor
  • direct interaction with focus hand units
  • interaction with cmotion LCS
  • easy switch between manual and automatic focus control
  • time and speed control of the focus pull
  • autofocus function

SETUP C:

ADVANCED FOCUS PULLING FEATURES

SETUP C

Controlled auto focus features and implementation of a graphical user interface with:

  • visual focus planes
  • depth of field display
  • advanced focus peaking
  • focus at a finger tip
  • presets
  • multi tracking

THE IMAGE+ SYSTEM

The Basic system of IMAGE+ is the measurement unit, short IMU. With the measurement unit, distance measurement with easy object tracking is possible. That means a moving object can be followed easily (Setup A). The measurement unit offers an interface, where traditional LCS-systems (Arri, cmotion, Preston, chrosziel) can be attached and the distance value can be read out. A focus motor can be directly connected to the measurement unit (Setup B).

A graphical user interface on a touch screen extends the system with new features to an advanced focus pulling system (Setup C).

The measurement unit of IMAGE+ inclusive holder, power cable and case is now available for 7.980€.

ALL ABOUT IMAGE+

ALWAYS EVERYTHING MEASURED

Focusing film is an artistic, creative act. No algorithm can decide where the attention of the viewer should be directed at. The time and duration between the change of an subject from one focus level to the next subject determines the drama of the images.

Especially in moving situations, focusing can be difficult. Some recordings often have to be repeated until the focus is right. IMAGE+ is a measuring device that solves a multitude of problematic situations when focusing. IMAGE+ measures continuously and at the same time how far away different objects are from the camera and how they move in relation to the camera.

Always measure better

  • Easy and fast measurement of reference markings
  • Visualized reference points
  • No need to set reference marks
  • Measure before objects come into the picture (FoV)
    (see before it becomes visible)
  • Permanent visualized distance information from the film set
  • Quickly react to changes in camera location

Always everything enhanced

  • Always on the camera - no complex settings
  • LCS interface
  • LCS functions included
  • several measuring modes for distance determination
  • Flexibly expandable through a variety of interfaces
  • build in distance read out

The basic system of IMAGE+ is the measuring unit. Thanks to its weight of less than 480g and different mounting points, it can be flexibly mounted on the camera. After powering up and switching on, a distance measurement is immediately displayed.


Thanks to its interfaces, the measuring instrument can be universally expanded. This provides a wide range of functions

  • integration of a graphical user interface
  • direct focus motor control
  • Camera interface
  • Working and managing lens data
  • Control monitor can be 100 meters away from the camera
  • Measure within range limits
  • Additional highly visible readout on the camera
  • Different setups possible (like exchangeable measurement range)
  • Expandable for Record Metadata, Timecode and screenrecording
  • Touch PC
