cinec – International Trade Fair for Cine Equipment and Technology
cinec 2016: Three Days of Technology and Creativity, Theory and Practice
17th - 19th September 2016
MOC Munich, Germany
Revolutionary technology has created new opportunities for cinematography to spread stories and to focus on the challenges beyond traditional markets. Highly innovative, top-class, and creative exhibitors will showcase their latest developments at the International Trade Fair cinec in Munich, 17 – 19 September 2016
Famous manufacturers of cameras like ARRI, Fujinon, Panasonic or SONY have booked their own stands, other renowned brands like RED, Blackmagic, Canon, Panavision, Phantom, and many more are represented by prominent system houses as Teltec, Ludwig-Kameraverleih or Tele-Data. The topics 4k, 8k, HDR, and HFR can be discussed at many places throughout the trade fair.
Optics as central elements of visual design – Uncoated, Vintage, Rehoused, Large-Format, Minis and Master-Primes, Anamorphic Primes or Zoom-Lenses – will be presented by Cooke, P + S, Angenieux, ZEISS, CW-Sonderoptik/LEICA, Vantage or Fujinon, to name just a few of cinec’s exhibitors.
The support industry will also perform at its best:
Visitors will get a first impression even before entering the exhibition halls, as the cranes of Technocrane, Moviebird or Special Grip Hungary will impress at the outdoor exhibition area.
Camera support systems can be surveyed at many stands throughout the cinec show. Gimbals and drones from the global leader DJI can be viewed in action in the Flight Cage at the moving.picture.pavilion. In addition to that visitors can also take a look at Freefly Systems at avt plus.
More than 20 stands will present innovative lighting systems, among them the retailers Lightequip and Lightpower, while Aaton, Ambient-Recording, and Sound-Devices will provide the latest audio equipment.
Versatile equipment, technology for Postproduction, Stereoscopy, Storage, Archiving, Restoration, and Distribution will complete the offer.
And last but not least: Virtual Reality. VR is a hot topic, but it isn’t sure yet whether the technology is more than a promotive hype and will really get suitable for movie production.
The experts’ rating includes the whole range from VR being an “extremely hot industry” to simply being a “fail”. To create a real feeling for immersing in unknown virtual worlds, many severe neurophysiological (motion sickness), data-related, haptic, and first of all financial obstacles have to be overcome.
However, VR is already strongly established in another rapid growing segment: Medical Imaging is a promising field, where several exhibitors of cinec become more and more successful with their innovative technologies - like ARRI, ZEISS, SONY, Trioptics, Panasonic, LABOTRON or Fischer Connectors. No wonder that cinec’s Ancillary Program will address that topic, too.
The cineCongress as part of the Ancillary Program will again start one day before the opening of the show – this year at the new Post Production Studios “Arri @ Bavaria Film”. Prof. Franz Kraus will initiate the high-level seminar program on Friday 16th (registrations mandatory). The cineCongress will then continue directly at the MOC (cinec's venue) on Saturday 17th with “camera trends”, latest developments of LEDs, IP Infrastructures, and Virtual Reality. The final day of the program on Monday 19th will cover display-technologies and neurophysiological aspects in the field of film production.
Outstanding innovations of cine technology will again be awarded with the cinecAwards. The awards ceremony will take place in the glorious Kaisersaal of the Residenz in Munich at the invitation of Minister of State Ilse Aigner – a rare privilege which witnesses the importance of the cinec.
