Studiotech SlowMotion

Instant replay, slow motion server with highlight editing tools.

Studiotech Slow Motion

Studiotech SlowMotion
is an SD/HD, slow motion video server designed to meet the growing challenges of live sport productions. SlowMotion provides up to 8 I/O channels of high quality Motion JPEG2000 ingest, synchronized slow motion replay, and powerful yet simple editing tools.

Studiotech SlowMotion – the controller

Studiotech SlowMotion's controller is designed to enhance the production workflow, while providing the operator with familiar and intuitive surroundings. SlowMotion’s controller can support up to 6 inputs and 2 outputs with PVW/PGM capabilities.

Studiotech Slow MotionIn addition, it supports super SlowMotion configurations including mixed super slow and standard recording at the same time, as well as seamlessly mixing them on the output.

The SlowMotion controller’s advanced architecture provides a user-friendly display, local database management, and sophisticated sorting tools.

SlowMotion’s programmable LCD buttons change appearance and functionality according to server status, providing more features, while keeping the controller interface simple.

Instant replay

With its synchronized recording of inputs, once an "in" point is set, switching to a different input recues to the same "in" point, allowing replay of the same event from all recorded inputs. If necessary different "in" and "out" points can be set for each input.

Clip management

Clips can be saved easily by pressing the Enter button, or by setting a clip number using the smart keypad. The SlowMotion smart keypad indicates used or available clip slots, preventing operation mistakes and accelerating operation speed.

Studiotech Slow MotionTo enhance the workflow, event types (goal, corner kick, offside, etc.) can be set for each saved clip, by selecting one of the 12 event buttons.

Events can be assigned to the buttons from pre-defined categories, according to sport disciplines, or can be custom defined. This allows easy sorting of different events for immediate replay.

Huge capacity

In order to provide increased storage with high data rates, advanced SATA technology is used. Slow Motion uses 8 X 1 TeraByte disks, which provide over 60 hours of HD recording in 100mbps, or 120 hours of SD recording in 50 mbps.

High reliability

The video data on SlowMotion is protected with RAID 6 technology, ensuring that even if 2 disks are down, no data is lost and there is no degradation in server performance. The video disks can be easily accessed from the front panel, without removing the server from the rack.

3D stereoscopic support

With its unique 8 channels configuration, SlowMotion can provide up to 4 stereo channels with flexible I/O configuration, while maintaining the existing workflow.

Superior image quality

In order to provide the best available image quality, motion-JPEG2000 encoders are used. Motion JPEG2000 uses a wavelet-based transform to achieve better compression, providing superb image quality and high error resilience.

8 in video splitter

Studiotech SlowMotion can be provided with Studiotech’s Multiviewer - a 1U rack mount unit with up to 8 inputs and both SDI and full HD DVI outputs.
