Dominator AT/3G To Debut
At NAB, Slomo.tv, a leading international supplier of cost-effective, high performance server-based video record and replay systems, will debut Dominator AT/3G. Representing the next generation the company’s multichannel 3G/HD/SD video recording server system, Dominator AT/3G enables advanced slow motion and instant replay capabilities as well as direct recording for editing ‘on site’. Dominator AT/3G supports up to 10 3G/HD/SD recording channels, four playback channels and powerful search capabilities on up to 10 channels without disrupting the core recording and playback functions. In ‘record for editing mode’ this server system can record up to 12 channels of HD/SD video.
Building on the success of previous models, the new AT/3G line offers enhanced replay capabilities and two operators can work simultaneously on the same unit. Since the system has four independent graphic outputs each operator can work on the main GUI and a separate multi-viewer monitor simultaneously. In replay mode, the operator can display up to six recording channels and two video playback channels, as well as having access to five channels for clip marking and playlist editing.
Importantly, when operating in SuperMo mode, the new Dominator AT/3G can simultaneously support three Sony, Hitachi or GVG 3X Super Motion and one ISO cameras, or alternatively two Panasonic 4X Super Motion AK-H5000 plus two regular ISO cameras.
For the past three years, Slomo.tv has used SSD based storage subsystems, but now the Dominator AT/3G uniquely stores 266 hours, 100 Mbit of HD video - more than any other similar product. Also, Dominator AT/3G provides recording directly in the “native” file formats of various NLE systems, using proprietary DMR™ technology which mitigates time-consuming file export operations. Alongside full HD recording, Dominator AT/3G enables the operator to create low resolution Proxy copies for draft editing without any additional equipment required.
Simultaneously, video data can be recorded on external file storage systems, as well as on internal RAID storage to secure the recorded files. Dominator AT/3G can be connected via two 10GbE and two 1GbE channels to a network attached storage (NAS) or directly to storage area network (SAN) using its optional 16G fibre channel interface. Also, the system can be connected to SAS-compatible storage. It can be connected to SAN or NAS practically unlimited storage, providing data transfer rates up to 720-1400 megabytes per second. A high speed SAN removes practical limits of recorded video, which is important when recording from multiple 3G/HD cameras, and particularly when simultaneously supporting several of Super Motion cameras.
Dominator AT/3G can be networked in various ways with other Slomo.tv systems by using the company’s networking option.
“Our mission at Slomo.tv is to develop server-based production solutions that are appropriate and affordable to the widest range of TV companies, both large and small, saving them time, money and stress,” commented Igor Vitiorets, CTO at Slomo.tv. “In developing the new Dominator AT/3G, we have achieved the next stage in the evolution of our main workhorse server series. Customer reaction has been very positive and we look forward to a busy show.”
