Infrared Video Production

This is a project I conceived for Kink.com. Working with one other engineer, I designed and built a system for infrared video capture. This allowed Kink's directors to shoot in complete darkness, which created the potential for a new type of content not seen before in Kink's market segment.

We specified high-definition IR cameras, lighting, and night-vision goggles for the production crew. We trained the gaffers in how to light a set using nonvisible light, trained directors in the use of night-vision technology, and implemented the necessary changes in the post-production workflow. Shortly thereafter, we extended the system to interoperate with the existing live broadcast infrastructure.
