SATELLITE LAB TECHNOLOGY

We offer several technologies for film-making and still photography.
At the core of Satellite Lab is precise synchronization of strobe lighting to camera, enabling the following:

 

DYNAMICLIGHT

A patented system which enables the use of moving light sources within footage captured at any speed, including the frozen world of high speed imaging. By using a high speed cinema camera to arrest a moment of time and light sources moving at over 10,000 feet per second, this technology creates the ability to control the movement of light sources and the movement of the scene as independent variables.

Predominantly used with high speed cameras such as the Vision Research Phantom, but can also be used with lower frame rate cameras, such as Arri Alexa and Red Weapon, Sony F55, or even a DSLR, to provide dynamic moving light at various frame rates.
 

-Control the speed of the light relative to the action (acceleration, deceleration - time ramping to / from real time and time-lapse).
-Light sources can be moved on any path (straight line, curve, and / or multiple paths)
-Light sources can illuminate in any pattern (randomly, in sequence, in a prescribed formation)

FRAMELIGHT

Provides the ability to shoot video and stills simultaneously using synchronized strobe lighting. Works with industry standard cameras such as the RED, Arri and Sony.

-Using one camera for stills + video. Each frame shot by a motion camera is lit with short duration strobe. (For example, shooting with a Red 8k Weapon, each 35 megapixel frame is sharp and perfectly exposed for pulling stills)
-Using one camera for stills and one camera for motion. Enables Simultaneous shooting with separate video and stills (with strobe) camera. Video and stills cameras are synchronized through our system so that one does not impact the other.

PLATELIGHT
Patent pending technology provides the ability to shoot live action with multiple lighting scenarios simultaneously (without time offset). Each lighting scenario is acquired as a separate plate, which can be combined in post for creative or technical flexibility and efficiency.

Can be used to shoot the following live action / motion as separate plates:
-Blue-screen and scene.
-Day and night.
-Key, fill and edge light.
-Key lighting and VFX lighting for tracking or effect.
