Speed is useless without control

o/PHANTOMFUSE is a virtual file system for Vision Research high-speed cameras such as the Phantom Flex4K®. It automatically detects plugged in CineMags® and mounts them as external storage device.

Media acquisition

Use o/PHANTOMFUSE with established media acquisition and data management workflows like Pomfort Silverstack.

Multiple cameras

Its built-in intelligent reel counting system keeps track of multiple cameras.

Format CineMags

To save precious time on mag changes, you safely erase the CineMag in a CineStation®.

Remote clip access

Access clips in your color grading application while the CineMag is still in the camera.

Reel naming

Industry standard reel and clip names are created automatically


o/PHANTOMFUSE will cover your back by double-checking for backups before erasing.


  • High performance
  • Access to CineMag files via Finder or any other program
  • Transcoding directly from CineMag
  • Automatic reel names
  • Industry standard file naming
  • Defect pixel fixing
  • Safe CineMag erasing function

Operation instructions

o/PHANTOMFUSE is operating as a background service and as such is almost invisible. A symbol in the MacOS menu bar indicates that o/PHANTOMFUSE is running. This symbol also gives access to all settings, including reel naming, erasing and unmounting CineMags.

When you insert a CineMag in your CineStation, it will be mounted automatically like any other external storage device. For copying files, we recommend the use of professional media acquisition systems such as Pomfort Silverstack.

In cooperation with these programs, copying .cine files with checksum verification is now finally possible and we highly recommend using it. Having this added security was in fact the major reason we created PHANTOMFUSE for our internal use.
