This Clever Camera Array Will Bullet-Time Everything


The Matrix

Previous systems used a series of fixed cameras so bullet time sequences could only be captured when the action happened where they were all pointed. But the NHK’s new system uses eight cameras mounted to remote control pan and tilt heads. So they can all be panned and tilted in unison from a master control panel, with custom software determining exactly how the remote cameras need to be positioned for smooth bullet time results.
