January 2, 2012... Toshiba Imaging has delivered the new, miniature, high definition, IK-HR1S camera to Grande Vitesse Systems (GVS) of San Francisco, California for integration into a ruggedized, digital video recording system for NASA. Grande Vitesse Systems specializes in supplying high-broadcast-quality video systems. With a configuration developed for NASA, the GVS9000 2XU, combines single video channels, Fibre Channel, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with a 3CCD Toshiba high definition camera with DVI output. The video camera can capture uncompressed HD footage at 1080p/60frames per second (fps) and provide simultaneous playback in both compressed and uncompressed formats.
The new GVS9000 2XU‘s uncompressed video content is recorded directly to a local drive, also designed by Grande Vitesse Systems. The GVS9000 2XU VTR devices with built-in storage allow NASA to access the content (even single frames or select scenes) via Gbit, and Fibre, at over 4.0 Gbit/sec, which accommodates 1080p/60, and 2k and 4k uncompressed recording without loss of image quality.
According to Jano Avanessian, V. P. of marketing and sales at Grande Vitesse Systems, “The system we developed for NASA required that the digital video recorder be independently controlled via RS422 (Sony 9-pin port) connector for three concurrent, uncompressed recordings." He indicated that the IK-HR1S HD camera supports HD-SDI along with Grand Vitesse's direct DVI-D interface. Avanessian said, "We are able to bypass any form of conversion while offering both HD-SDI and 1080p 60 options side-by-side in a single camera unit."
