Sony PXW-FS5 4K Camera

We are very happy to announce the newest addition to our camera line-up, the Sony PXW-FS5.
This sweet 4K camera is the younger sibling to our very popular PXW-FS7 4K camera.
We’ve included two 64 GB SD cards which will allow for two hours of the best quality 4K or about 10 hours of the best quality HD footage.
Here is a link to more details:


Samsung 55″ 4K Monitors

In addition to our new 4K camera, we have also recently purchased four 55″ 4K monitors.
These are available for members to rent for gallery installations, and to screen their glorious 4K projects shot with our 4K cameras.–class-mu6290-4k-uhd-tv-un55mu6290fxza/

Changes in the Technical Department


You may have noticed over the past couple of months that Heidi Phillips and Kelsey Braun have been working in the Technical Department. We would like to officially welcome them as part of the Video Pool Media Arts Centre team!

They will both be working in the Technical Department, and Heidi will be working in the Education Department while Andy Rudolph is on parental leave.

Heidi has worked at Video Pool in the past in the Technical, Outreach and Distribution Departments. She has a long history of working in Media Arts Centres. Heidi is an award winning filmmaker, who has been working in film and video for over fifteen years.

Kelsey began volunteering at Video Pool over six years ago to digitize tapes in our archive. He has casually worked in the Technical Department, helps out with installing exhibits and was part of coordinating and facilitating the upload of Video Pool’s titles to VUCAVU. Kelsey is a sound and video artist who never seems to stop making!
