video of it in action from Jason Wingrove:
Does anyone know what program / app that is?
Definitely cool, if it works that is, and this was not only test Jason was doing.
Can it send TC via a cable to a slate, camera, or mixer ? I wonder how accurate the TC is (does it drift).
But if you have a Pola on, you might see nothing and you have to turn the pola to see it but mess up the DP's exact pola position. You could always mark it.
Also, an Ipad is so nice, it would hurt to see it laid around set like a normal slate and see it being beat up like that. Sometimes there's nowhere to put it down but in a place where it's going to be beat up when don't have time and must do some other immediate task.
I like the idea but definitely not a replacement for a normal slate. The little "beep" at end of the slate wasn't very loud either so if the 2nd AC was far away, you wouldn't be able to hear it...well, I guess if the sound mixer was next to him. But it doesn't seem to have the visual 'smack' to make it easy to sync up easily in post.
I may be wrong but just putting my two cents in it.
I'm sorry, but what the heck is a "Pola"?
