Doremi is integrating advanced JPEG2000 video compression technology into its new single and multi-channel HD video servers. JPEG2000 is particularly suited to HD video compression. It can provide two hours of near uncompressed quality video on just one SCSI hard drive.
Doremi Labs began shipping the JPEG2000 compression V1-HD vdr in January 2005. The V1-HD features HD-SDI and SDI in/out and functions as a drop-in replacement for any HD VTR. The V1-HD also features an independent record and play option, and a dual-link HD-SDI option.
The V1-HDs numerous advanced features lend their use to many applications. Its random access and simple video clip and play list programming provides for efficient on-air and live event operation. In a film or video mastering environment the V1-HD becomes a multi-format recorder of compressed SD and HD video.
Its dual-Link HD-SDI option offers 4:4:4 2k resolution for applications such as Digital Cinema, 3D video and super-wide screen (stereoscopic) video. Its independent record and play option is ideal for broadcast time delay and sports slow motion replay. In sports applications one channel can be set to record the live event, while the other is free to playback any part of the recorded video in slow motion.
Doremi Labs will showcase its new MCS-HD four-channel HD video server at NAB. The MCS-HD Server features two record and two play independent High Def video channels with shared storage and selectable compression rates.
The MCS-HD quickly integrates into a facilitys existing operations. It features a front panel that mimics familiar VTR controls and is compatible with Odetics and VDCP automation protocols as well as Sony 9pin machine control. It can record all popular High Definition and Standard Definition video formats. The MCS-HD can be used with Doremis low cost ListMaker automation software for video clip and play list programming with time/date automation for efficient on-air operation.
