For-A has been awarded by its FT-One camera
For-A company is one of three recipients recognized 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 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 weren´t possible before and catches action that has been extracted and integrated from the field of play and assimilates it into a HD production.
“We are very pleased and honored to receive this distinguished and prestigious award for our technology and engineering efforts on the FT-One camera”, has said Mr. 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 has 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 has concluded.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) will present the 68th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards at the Bellagio Hotel on Saturday, January 7, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
