VIENNA, Austria, April 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
- The gyro-stabilized camera system has the potential to revolutionize the world of filming due to its simplicity and ease of operation. After more than one year of intense designing, the two Austrians Clemens Fischer and Wolfgang Vogel will exhibit their new system at the NABSHOW trade fair in Las Vegas from 7 to 10 April.
G-RIG's novel camera system VALOS is a motor-operated 3-axis system that stabilizes filming and substantially enhances hand-held camera shots. The new VALOS-system by and large replaces the "Steadicam" known in the movie industry. A highly sensitive sensor detects natural body movement. The movement information is quickly processed by a microprocessor and passed on to the motors. These motors move the camera, which is mounted on the system, equally into the opposite direction of the natural movement. This creates a stable horizon, enabling smooth and steady motion pictures.
Flexible and simple handling for perfectly balanced filming.
The system is basically designed for movie cameras up to 6 kg. The architecture of VALOS makes it independent from any kind of attachment to the floor, vehicles, persons or other given options and still delivers perfect shooting results.
One big advantage is the unrestricted liberty of movement. Thus, e.g. tracking shots from the floor to an overhead position can be performed. A single battery provides full power supply to all the system's components. The "V-Mount Battery", which is included in the delivery as "FUELUNIT", has proved itself in the practice of professional filming for years. Furthermore, VALOS stands out due to its "Ready to Shoot"-concept. This means that the operator can work with the system without purchasing any further products and start after only a short training period - in contrast to the Steadicam. An app for iOS and Android Devices is included and allows an easy configuration of the system software.
High-Tech: Action above water, on land and in the air
VALOS is splash-proof and can also be used in rainy conditions. The light weight and slim construction make it very flexible in use. Therefore it is possible to shoot on, out of or in vehicles without any additional mounting. The system also stabilizes filming from aircrafts, e.g. helicopters. Of course, it can be used on in-line-skates or Segways as well.
Two Austrian engineers.
Clemens Fischer (42), cinematographer and producer, and Wolfgang Vogel (40), engineer and IT specialist, decided to create their own solution after an unsuccessful search for such a camera system. Both of them have over 20 years' experience and the necessary creativity. They have finished building VALOS after one year's work and it is now ready for presentation at NABSHOW in Las Vegas.
VALOS will be ready for pre-order as from 7 April 2014 on http://www.g-rig.com for the price of $11.900 (outside the EU, excluding VAT, custom duties and shipping costs), €8.900 (inside the EU, excluding VAT and shipping costs). Upon request, VALOS may also be tested.
Included in the delivery:
- FUELUNIT 75 battery
- FUELSTATION charging station
- Remote control for use by two persons
- Adjustable camera plate with rod mount
- VALOS rack
- Fixtures for other equipment

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...
