    It'll be nice to see firms fall due to focus on 8K .

    NAB BOOTH #C6019 – At NAB 2019, imaging leader Nikon is making a statement that they are more committed than ever to professional video production and content creators. Nikon will be showcasing their latest video innovations, including the powerfully cinematic Z Series of full-frame mirrorless cameras and NIKKOR Z lenses, the new Nikon Z 6 Filmmaker’s Kit and a demonstration of the much-anticipated ProRes RAW video firmware update for the Nikon Z series. Additionally, visitors to the booth can experience the latest robotic and automated broadcast solutions from MRMC, a Nikon company. Nikon will also be conducting a series of inspiring interviews and panel discussions with filmmakers, prominent YouTube creators and Nikon Ambassadors that will be livestreamed directly from the show floor using a combination of Nikon and MRMC technologies.“The Nikon Z Series is a phenomenal tool for all kinds of creators, from aspiring filmmakers, to production professionals, to visionary DP’s,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “By packing a robust, high-level feature set and exceptional image quality into such a small form-factor, we want to make Nikon an indispensable part of any production where portability and a small footprint are as essential as production value.”

    Nikon Z Series

    The Nikon Z Series is an innovative full-frame mirrorless camera system that combines advanced video features with legendary Nikon reliability and optical excellence. Attendees are invited to see for themselves the advanced features the Z Series offers, including 4K UHD recording, Time Code, focus peaking, uncompressed HDMI output, N-Log and more.

    The Z 6 Filmmaker’s Kit, Nikon’s all-in-one video bundle, is the ultimate “starter pack” for content creators who want to begin capturing smooth, steady and cinematic full-frame 4K Ultra HD footage right away. At a suggested retail price (SRP*) of just $3,999.95, the kit gives creators all the tools they need to step up their production in one convenient bundle at a significant savings.

    The kit includes a Nikon Z 6 camera, NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens, Mount Adapter FTZ, Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR 5” Monitor Recorder1, Rode VideoMic Pro+, MOZA Air 2 3-Axis Hand-Held Gimbal Stabilizer, an additional EN-EL15b battery, 12-month Vimeo Pro membership, and The Art of Making Music Videos Nikon School online course featuring Nikon Ambassador Chris Hershman.

    ProRes RAW Video on the Nikon Z Series – Future Firmware Demonstration

    In addition to its advanced content capture capabilities, the Nikon Z Series offers a range of features that seek to enhance the video workflow and offer ultimate creative control in post-production, such as 10-bit HDMI output, N-Log, Time Code and focus peaking. Features will also continue to adapt and evolve—currently in development is a LUT for N-Log, as well the upcoming addition of 12-bit ProRes RAW video support.

    For filmmakers, the remarkably efficient ProRes RAW codec will put 68 billion colors at their disposal, giving them increased tonal range, smoother gradations and more flexibility when color grading. A first for a full-frame mirrorless camera in its price range2, this feature will be available on both the Nikon Z 6 and Nikon Z 7 when using the Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR 5” Monitor Recorder to capture video.

    The Z Series will continue to adapt to changing user needs through the development and roll-out of firmware updates that meet and exceed creative expectations. The upcoming firmware update will be on display at the Nikon booth at NAB 2019 (C6019) for attendees to see in action. Details, including release date, will be shared at a later date.

    MRMC at NAB 2019

    Robotic and automated broadcast solutions manufacturer MRMC, a Nikon company, will bring their groundbreaking Polycam Chat, Polycam Player and Polycam One solutions to NAB 2019. The Bolt and Bolt Jr. camera robots will also take up residency in both the Nikon booth and in the convention center lobby to demonstrate why they are the premiere choice in high-speed and slow-motion precision content capture.

The newest broadcast and cinema products featured in the Canon booth (#C4425) this year not only align with the current needs of their respective industries such as HDR, but also the production needs that the industry will soon consider as standard, especially 4K UHD.

    In addition to the recently announced products, the Canon booth will feature a wide range of imaging solutions for a variety of live-production and filmmaking environments, such as stadiums and studios, houses of worship, and on-location breaking news. Visitors to the Canon booth will have hands-on opportunities to experience the full range of Canon’s strong portfolio of broadcast and cinema camera and lens solutions, 4K reference displays, 4K UHD camcorders, DSLR and Full-Frame mirrorless cameras and lenses as well as projectors.

    “There has never been a better time for storytellers to bring their visions to life through TV and cinema productions. Each NAB show presents Canon with the opportunity to showcase how our products help to support these productions,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “At NAB 2019, visitors to the Canon booth will see that we are a major resource and on the pulse of the latest trends for production professionals and content creators looking for the latest products and technologies now and in the future.”

    Throughout the booth, Canon will feature products that were used to shoot all five of the Academy Award® Best Documentary Feature nominees – RBG, Hale County This Morning This Evening, Of Fathers and Sons, Minding the Gap, and Academy Award® winner for Best Documentary Feature: Free Solo that used the CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm lens to shoot pivotal scenes.

    An in-booth service and support consultation area will be available for show attendees to discuss Canon’s offerings for client services and programs, including Enterprise CPS and CarePAK PRO. Visitors to the booth can also learn about Canon’s upcoming display color-calibration service that is launching later this year.
