Flickerfree NTSC or PAL Color Video Assist
A video assist (video tap) is an accessory for a motion picture camera that provides a video feed from
the camera lens. It is used to allow the director or operator to see on a video monitor or computer screen what
is in the camera's frame without having to look through the viewfinder, as well as allowing video to be
captured that can be used to create an immediate rough cut, if needed. If the motion picture camera runs at a
frame per second rate (e.g. 24 fps) different from the video frame rate, NTSC: 29.97 fps, PAL: 25 fps, then
the monitor image will flicker. The flickerfree video assist is designed to produce a 100% flickerfree monitor
image for camera speeds ranging from 10 to 150 fps. A Sony CCD (Charge Coupled Device) solid stage
EXview HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) image sensor provides it with high resolution, high sensitivity and
outstanding color fidelity. The computerized video assist electronics allows the image to be electronically
flipped horizontally and/or vertically, which is useful when operating the unit with various video optics systems
(different cameras, e.g. Arriflex or Aaton). This video assist can be supplied from a 12 V or 24 V battery
(autoranging) and is equipped with a noise filter which provides a clear monitor image even if the camera
motor is noisy. The low power consumption, only 220mA/12V or 130mA/24V, gives your camera battery a
longer life.

The flicker reduction switch is a 3 position switch:
- When set to the lower position, flickerfree mode FF is activated and the green LED is lit. This mode is
designed to produce a flickerfree image for camera speeds ranging from 10 to 150 fps.
- When set to the middle position, flicker reduction is off and the green LED is not lit. The video assist is in
normal mode.
- NTSC - When set to the upper position, flickerfree mode FF30 is activated and the green LED is lit. This
mode provides a 100% flickerfree image when operating at a camera speed of 29.97 fps or 30 fps. In this
mode, flickering is reduced by 70% for camera speeds other than 29.97 fps and 30 fps.
PAL - When set to the upper position, flickerfree mode FF24/25 is activated and the green LED is lit. This
mode provides a 100% flickerfree image when operating at a camera speed of 24 fps or 25 fps.
If the video assist is powered from the camera's accessory connector, flickerfree modes FF , FF30 (NTSC)
and FF24/25 (PAL) will only be active when the camera is running. Once the camera is stopped, normal mode
will resume. If the digital gain control is set to "9", flickerfree FR/A mode will be active even when the camera
is stopped. If the video assist is supplied from the 12 V battery using a cable with a 4 pin XLR connector,
activation of the flickerfree FR/A mode will not depend on whether the camera is running.
The accessory connector which is installed on the side of the video assist is designed to
supply power 12 V DC, 600mA to an LCD monitor.
DIP switches located on the electronics board: By using the DIP switches
located on the electronics board you can flip the image horizontally (mirroring) or
vertically (upside down).

Integrated Flickerfree Color Video Assist for Arriflex 16SR and 16SR HS
Reg 16 or Super 16 Format
This flickerfree CCD video assist is designed to produce a flickerfree image for camera speeds ranging from
10 to 150 fps. A Sony CCD image sensor provides it with high resolution, high sensitivity, and outstanding
color fidelity. The power necessary to supply the unit is taken internally from the camera's 4 pin XLR power
input receptacle. This integrated video assist system provides a picture on the monitor screen that is brighter
and sharper than that of the T-bar or modified J-bar video tap because the CCD image sensor is installed
closer to the fiber optic viewing screen. The viewfinder image is also brighter because the exposure meter's
beamsplitter is removed and replaced by a brighter pellicle T70/R30 type beamsplitter. The video optics is
independent of the viewfinder, so the video image is stable even when the viewfinder is rotating. This
installation requires that the entire exposure meter section be removed from the camera body. This video
assist is equipped with a noise filter which provides a clear monitor image even if the camera motor is noisy.
The low power consumption, only 2.7W (220mA), gives your camera battery a longer life.

Integrated B&W or Color Video Assist for Arriflex 16SR (Reg16 or Super16)
The CCD image sensor and video assist electronics are mounted inside the camera body. The control
module with switches and output connector is mounted on the camera's side. The power necessary to supply
the video assist is taken internally from the camera's 4 pin XLR power input receptacle. The internal image
sensor installation provides a picture on the monitor screen that is brighter and sharper than that of the T-bar
or modified J-bar video tap because the CCD image sensor is installed closer to the fiber optic viewing
screen. The viewfinder image is also brighter because the exposure meter's beamsplitter is removed and
replaced by a brighter pellicle T70/R30 type beamsplitter. The video optics is independent of the viewfinder,
so the video image is stable even when the viewfinder is rotating. This installation requires that the entire
exposure meter section be removed from the camera body. We can install this video assist in NTSC or PAL
format.

The following is a description of the two-position switches, from left to right in the picture above:
1. Auto gain control (AGC): upper position is ON, lower position is OFF (gain 0dB). Set this control to ON
when the monitor image is underexposed (low light level).
2. CCD iris control: upper position is ON, lower position is OFF. Set this control to ON when the monitor
image is overexposed.
3. White balance (WB). When set to the lower position, the white balance is in auto mode (AWB is on). When
set to the upper position, the white balance is in constant color temperature mode (CCT). The CCT mode
remembers the last color palette that was set in the lower position (last palette in AWB mode); the palette will
remain constant even if the color temperature of the light source changes. To calibrate the white level for a
particular color temperature, you will need to put a white sheet of paper in front of the camera lens and set the
switch to the lower position for about 3 sec. Then turn it to the upper position to activate the CCT mode. The
color palette will be set after this procedure .
4. Video assist power on/off switch: when in the upper position, the video power is ON and the red LED is lit;
when in the lower position, the video power is OFF and the red LED is not lit.
The video output is a standard BNC composite video output.

Video Assist for the Arriflex 16BL
For the Arriflex 16BL, we have both a B&W and a color CCD video assist. It is installed inside the camera
door and allows you to look through the viewfinder and display the picture from the video assist on a monitor
at the same time. For the APEX door with exposure meter, we will remove the meter section from the door
before the video assist installation. This unit has an on/off power switch, AGC/CCD auto iris switch and a BNC
video output connector. For the installation, you have to send us just the camera door. It is easy to remove
the door from the body. You have to open the door, remove the 4 screws, and slide the door off from the
hinge.

DC/AC Converter for Kenyon Gyro Stabilizers
The AZ Spectrum 115 V AC , 400 Hz DC-AC Converter supplies power for two Kenyon Gyro
Stabilizers. The Kenyon Gyro Stabilizer is designed for quick attachment to any hand-held optical device, to
remove the tremors so damaging to target identification
and photographic detail sharpness. Very small angular
deflections in pitch and yaw caused by tremors and
vibrations, result in relatively large sweeps across the
target, inevitably blurring the image. Twin rate gyros
mounted on crossed axis sense these motions and
dynamically resist displacement through gyroscopic
precession. The gyros operate in a low vacuum helium
atmosphere within a hermetically sealed casing.
Threefold benefits are realized throught this technique protection from hostile environment, motor heat
conduction to surface, and reduction of aerodynamic drag
of the gyro wheel, to attain 21,000 RPM with minimum
power input. For more info about Kenyon Gyro Stabilizers
please contact: Kenyon Laboratories LLC, 11 Scovil Rd,
