The V1 is a high-quality Video Disk Recorder/Player designed to record and playback video and audio using hard disks or the V1 Video Server. It consists of a 3U rack mount unit with a full function front panel and 2 drive bays that can house hard disk drives or DVD-RAM.
Due to its familiar controls and operation, the V1 can function as an instant replacement for a video tape recorder of any format, or as an additional recorder/player. It is field accurate and can be controlled from an industry standard RS-422 serial interface using the familiar “Sony 9 pin protocol.” At the same time, the V1 has the advantage of locating immediately to any position on the disk, providing instant access to the video data.
The video data is compressed using the Motion-JPEG standard and recorded along with the audio and the time code address onto the hard disk drive.
