FOR-A Company Ltd. is one of the three recipients to be awarded the Technology & Engineering Emmy for Live Production Technology Beyond HD to Achieve Non-Interpolated Video for Instant Replay. FOR-A was the first manufacturer to release and have put into a practical application, an ultra-high-speed 4K resolution camera with up to 900 frames per second — the FT-ONE, for live sports production.
The FT-ONE has been used on a wide variety of high-profile sports events and broadcasting projects throughout the world. While traditional sports coverage is great for much of the action, high speed capability with 4K extraction has been a real game-changer. It provides image details that were never possible before and catches action that has been extracted and integrated from the field of play and assimilate it into a HD production. The level of image detail, and resolution was never before seen by the home viewer whereby offering a new way to enjoy a sports event, making it clear as to the outcome of a controversial play.
We are very pleased and honored to receive this distinguished and prestigious award for our technology and engineering efforts on the FT-ONE camera, said Katsuaki Kiyohara, President of FOR-A.
This would not have been possible without the commitment, dedication, and tireless efforts of our dynamic engineering team at FOR-A, he continued. Their dedication and hard work is evident within the high-quality products they produce. The FT-ONE is just one example. We are also very grateful to those out there in the field, who have chosen to use our FT-ONE camera to get the very best quality shot possible, Kiyohara concluded.
The FT-ONE, incorporates a custom ultra-resolution CMOS with high speed, ultra-low noise and extreme light sensitivity, all developed by FOR-A. Capturing high-speed images at 4K resolution and then integrating with HD image extraction solutions, provided a new way to see sports events and scenes in details like never before.
