Sony BVM-HX310 Reference Monitor and CBK-3610XS VENICE Extension System win NAB Show 2019 Product of the Year Awards

By: SonyCine Team

Sony’s new BVM-HX310 Reference Monitor and VENICE Extension System bring home the wood at the 2019 NAB Show 2019 Product of the Year Awards. These awards recognize the most significant and promising new products and technologies on display for the first time at the NAB trade show in April. They are awarded by a panel of industry experts.

CBK-3610XS VENICE Extension System

The lightweight and easy-to-use extension system allows the camera body to detach from the image sensor block with no degradation in image quality. The image sensor block weighs four pounds with PL mount and three with just the native E-mount, and the cable system can extend from the body up to either 9 to 18 feet, offering a highly configurable, flexible and portable method of operation. The new Extension System is compatible with both existing and new VENICE cameras.

As shooting environments and requirements become more advanced and demanding, VENICE users can expect the same image quality and integrity when using the robust Extension System, which enables VENICE to become highly mobile and discreet for many mounting setups including use with gimbals and other stabilizers, underwater and helicopter housings, and 3D/VR rigs, as well as in tight and unconventional spaces, such as in vehicles, on cranes or Russian arms.

While still taking advantage of VENICE’s features including a built-in 8-step mechanical Optical ND filter system and Dual Base ISO (ISO500/2500), the Extension System was developed for filmmakers, by filmmakers who sought out the ergonomics, small footprint and agile form factor the system offers, but with no compromise of image quality.

The VENICE Extension System consists of a front panel cover, image sensor block case with a 9-foot cable and a 9-foot extension cable. It is compatible with existing VENICE cameras running Version 3.0 firmware. The addition of the Extension System also adds an HD-SDI output, a 12V or 24V output for powering accessories such as lens servo motors and monitoring. The system also comes with multiple screw holes on all surfaces to enable various rigs and accessories attachment.
