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 two SCSI hard disk drives..
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.
video data is compressed using DCT compression and recorded along
with the audio and the time code address onto the hard disk drive.
