SLATE: The digital film flap made of e-paper that requires no electricity

SLATE: The digital film flap made of e-paper that requires no electricity

[14:46 Sun,13.November 2022   by ]    

Traditional film flaps are handy for seeing at a glance what scene and take it is when viewing footage, and for synchronizing picture and sound if necessary. In the past, film flaps were traditionally chalkboards on which information about each take was written, such as the film title, director, date, number of the scene and take, as well as the camera and lens used and other info. Later, there was a switch to acrylic pens and, more recently, to apps that display the relevant information on tablets.

TRIBE7 now wants to combine the best features of analog and digital film flaps with its SLATE flap. Thus, SLATE consists of a 7.5" e-paper (800 x 480) display, which replaces the classic blackboard and can display various customizable templates in different designs and arbitrary fields as well as basic information about the film, which does not change from scene to scene. The setup of the film flap image of the takes place via its own SLATE app (iSS/Android), with the help of which a picture designed, for example, in a graphics program via NFC without further configuration of a connection, just by holding it close, transferred to the film flap.

The information for each individual take is then simply written on the SLATE film flap using a dry-erase pen and then removed again by wiping - without any app at all.

Interesting is the fact that SLATE doesn&t need any external power at all - just like an analog flap. I.e. it doesn&t require batteries, USB chargers or power cables. This is a big advantage over a corresponding app running on a normal tablet. This is made possible by the e-paper display (similar to an e-book reader such as Amazon&s Kindle), which only requires some power when changing the display. The power needed for this comes from the integrated lithium battery, whose charge is supposed to last for more than 7 years of operation in normal use (so presumably longer than the lifetime of the hardware).

Thus, the SLATE combines the advantages of a digital flap with those of an analog flap: the appearance including basic information can be designed and transferred to the flap as desired, the scene info can easily be written to the flap without needing an app. Since it doesn&t need an app to write the scene info, and it doesn&t need power, it&s not yet another device on the film set whose battery level needs to be watched.

Weighing 290 grams, the SLATE is made of rugged ABS polymer with a hard-coated, anti-glare screen and is designed for a lifetime of use. The display is so robust that the SLATE can actually be used quite classically as an acoustic film flap as well.Using easy-to-apply black and white or colored labels, the design of the SLATE can be further customized to suit your own preferences.

The SLATE costs 277 euros and will be delivered from the end of November 2022. In the future, even larger versions of the SLATE are to be developed.
