Slomo.tv’s Dominator Can Store More HD Video Than Any Other

Slomo.tv, a supplier of server-based video record and replay systems, will debut Dominator AT/3G. The machine is for slow motion and instant replay capabilities as well as direct recording for editing ‘on site’ and it can store more HD video than any other appliance it is claimed.

Dominator AT/3G supports up to 10 3G/HD/SD recording channels, four playback channels and search capabilities on up to 10 channels. 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,” states Igor Vitiorets, CTO, Slomo.tv. “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.”

When operating in SuperMo mode, the appliance can simultaneously support three SonyHitachi 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 stores 266 hours, 100 Mbit of HD video - more than any other similar product the vendor claims.

The product provides recording 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 creation of low resolution proxies.

Simultaneously, video data can be recorded on external file storage systems, as well as on internal RAID storage to secure the recorded files. It can be connected via two 10GbE and two 1GbE channels to a NAS or directly to a 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.

“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 Vitiorets. “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.”
