GVS9000 2XU 3D Stereoscopic Video Recorder and Live Playback VTR
The GVS9000 2XU 3D VTR Stereoscopic Digital Film Recorder delivers high quality film record and playback for field and studio settings in a convenient and cost-effective package. GVS 2XU 3D combines dual video channels, Fibre Channel, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with hardware level secure media storage in a compact 2U rack space.

By leveraging the GVS9000 architecture, the 2XU 3D VTR is immediately deployable with GVS Video Tools productivity software for ingest, slow-mo 1%-10K% playback frame, and the ability to offer RAW Uncompressed Playback during Recording. Built for film, like the 9000 line of media servers, 2XU 3D VTR is optimized to meet the demanding reliability and performance requirements of the film industry and to satisfy its highly focused needs.

Uncompressed RAW Recorder and Playback
3D 4:4:4 HD

Unlike tape decks, the 2XU 3D captures the RAW data from dual HD SDI interfaces from 2xSony HDCAM SR Decks, 2xARRI D-21, 2xThompson Viper, and 2xRED One cameras direct to disk, saving hours in the editing process. In addition ingest of 2K media provides users with utmost image quality via HSDL (high speed data link) using SDI connections from 2K telecine machines as well as 2K sequential DPX files and 2K QuickTime reference movies created simultaneously. 2K playout via HSDL further enhances the flexibility of 2XU 3D VTR to work with other 2K equipment and direct output to projectors compatible with 2K. The playback feature of the 2XU 3D allows 2K material to be previewed on standard HD 24P monitors. 2XU 3D Dual Link supports full bandwidth 4:4:4 RGB at 10-bit for 1080i/p and 720p formats and can also convert between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 formats for single Link HD-SDI output. The 2XU 3D can also playback a large number of AVI, JPEG, DPX, MPEG, MXF, IMX and QuickTime files via HD SDI. And because raw data images are quite large optional proxy files are provided. The 2XU 3D offers concurrent live duplication of content during production. Removable Solid State Disks (SSD) are available as an option.

2XU 3D Stereoscopic VTR, yet extremely quiet solution for recording studios

The GVS9000 2XU 3D includes internal hot-swappable enterprise-class media disk drives pack for content storage, local internal ingest and playout. It supports dual channels of 10-bit Uncompressed RAW 4:4:4 RGB HD for the high-definition video I/O at up to 2,800 Mbps, or standard-definition video I/O at up to 100 Mbps, while at the same time handling IP-based file transfer traffic in and out of the system. Video I/O modules and redundant power supplies are also hot-swappable providing uninterrupted operation in the field or studio.

Video Format Flexibility: GVS 2XU 3D VTR provides mounting space and power for up to eight sync independent I/O modules, which provide 3D video encoding and decoding playback. GVS 2XU 3D I/O modules currently include a dual channel HD/SD SDI/HSDL input and output channels. There are mixed format, mixing HD and SD modules, and selection or change at any given time during recording for master or copy.

The use of Fibre Channel RAID storage ensures that the system continues to operate at the speed of 5.2Gbit/sec. In addition, the 2XU 3D VTR offers Dual Fibre Channel connectivity allowing media transfer of 4Gbit or 8Gbit/sec Fibre speed as well as connectivity to a standard SAN storage. The Nomadic1U 12xPro offers an optional 12 external SSD drives.

Having the Dual Fibre Channel provides flexibility for 3D stereoscopic video production studios, allowing recording with green screen and preview in 3D in real-time and 3D footage to be stored in a centralized location without having to move data in between edit stations from AVID, Adobe or Apple FCP offers greater productivity and cost..

Another key feature of the 90002XU 3D VTR is the ability to edit during ingest, allowing editors to be extremely productive. This is most useful when you have only one chance to take a shot such as during sports and other live events. You can't stop the camera, and you have to film without knowing if you have captured that right shot. With the 90002XU 3D VTR you have the option to do a continual roll, going back and forth on your preview monitor, to ensure that the shots that were taken earlier are acceptable and editing content in real time without having to stop the camera. Offering 10 hours of continual recording, the 90002XU 3D VTR is perfect for capturing sequences for action scenes, documentaries, science, oceanography and more.

Compatibility: GVS 90002XU 3D VTR is designed with the latest technology of the 9000 family product line but uses the same time-proven, robust code base as GVS9000 VTR Product and works out of the box with a large number of 3rd party applications supported by other 9000 systems, including automation, editors, archiving systems, and GVS Application Tools.

Dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for asynchronous playback in 2K in digital cinema with direct attaching to 2K projector, or file transfer and support of FTP, SMB and the Apple® File Sharing Protocol, provide simple, standardized file movement techniques for your production.

By delivering this high level of performance in a fully integrated VTR, GVS 2XU 3D establishes a new line of compact, highest quality, versatile, professional grade, multi-channel Digital Recorders.

RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera firmware build 21 or higher provides some exciting workflow features:
2XU 3D HD is able to use special flags implemented into camera SDI feed.AUTO-RECORD
REVERSE PULLDOWN supporting regular camera frame-rates as well as varispeed and ramps up to 60fps!
SYNC option in RED ONE and external timecode reference in GVS9000 2XU 3D VTR.
9000 3D VTR can now read the filename of the clip being recorded on RED ONE through the SDI! RED SYNC Furthermore, you can synchronize your media to R3D files. Synchronization process loads metadata from R3D files and inserts it into 9000 3D VTR database.
