GVS Flypack

Configured for HD Mobile Satellite Truck On Location Uncompressed RAW 12K, 8K, 4K, 2K, HD, 3D, 4:4:4:4 Encoder, Capture, Edit, Store, and Broadcast Live for applications from Sports to Medical

FlyPack is dynamic, high-impact, lightweight, and has the capability to deliver the most rugged and durable on-road system possible. It is designed to ship anywhere in the world and arrives ready to plug in and go.

GVS is introducing the FlyPack in less than 11U rack size. Even at this compact size, it's able to deliver all you need for your production to take place, including last-minute changes. Fly Pack's hot-swappable drives allow for editing to be done from anywhere and then returned to the field for project completion.

The key components are designed from the ground up, taking into consideration every single a necessary aspect of a road case. Listening to the needs of the clients we have worked with over the years, we have implemented the most crucial elements for an on-road product - compacting the most tools in the least amount of space without sacrificing the quality or ability to produce the best possible result out in the field..

The following are the main components of the FlyPack:

  • Rugged Rack w/ air shock option
  • The panoramic touch screen display 12K, 8K, 6K 5K, 4k, HD SDI, SDI
  • GVS9000 HD/SD-SDI 2K 4K 6K 8K 12K capture, edit, and playback
  • Nomadic 1U 24 hr. media with 12xHD SDI Recorders and Playback in single storage media
  • Live Cast during capture or playback in Windows Media or Quick Time
  • I/O interface for 4,8,12 or 24 HD SDI and HDMI 2.1 video with 3D support
  • Power Management for battery backup
  • 12xGVCam HD SDI Camera Recording
  • Complex FlyPack Configuration with a large number of displays and extended Fibre line with selective GVS partners offering worldwide service and support 24/7

The above ROI indicates the major benefits and associated profits with the GVS Metropolis Media Server workflow line. Primarily through low maintenance and operational costs, along with the deliverance of maximum speed and throughput, substantial increases in productivity become reality in multiple production environments.

Having the ability to access to over 100-100,000 hours of footage information on a centralized high-speed server with readily available SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers), EDL, YUV component, SDI, MPEG, Audio, still, or Uncompressed source footage has now become a reality with the Metropolis Optical-based Nomadic storage system.

The operator spends much less time looking for footage, with the simple "Command Find" function or Windows Based "Search (Browse) Network Volumes" operators can find the desired file within seconds at around 100-100,000 hours of footage information. Queued projects disappear from the desktop machine in less than thirty seconds. Today's technology offers a tremendous amount of options for field recording - from simple tape, which is rare but still done, to a removable media like P2, compact flash, CF cards, and many more, including the acquisition of the content on portable drives. Moving the drives to production involves 6 steps which we have covered in the production area, so now we are going to focus on the advantages of having the Metropolis solution in a Flypack in the field, and the benefits that it delivers for field applications. The workflow below shows the six-step process that is involved in getting the content to production. While the steps are simple, at this point the process becomes extremely expensive if you try to increase the bandwidth requirement and the quality of the data that is being captured directly from the camera. It is common to maintain a MPEG compression that overcomes this tedious duplication process but sacrifices quality. The biggest benefit of utilizing the Metropolis workflow in field recording is the enormous cost savings. The same drives from the field are used for preview and playback and can be taken directly to post-production, removing the need for all the other steps and maintaining a much higher bandwidth. There is no more need for duplication, data transfer or additional drives.

The following are additional benefits of using Metropolis in FlyPack:

  • Quality up to 3Gbit/s, 6Gbit/s, 12GBit/sec
  • Variable speed preview during recording
  • Longer recording time
  • Media duplication on the flypack
  • Time-saving
  • MPEG/Win/ProRes compact files on the fly
  • High-speed storage for use in production
  • XML input of data during recording is ideal for post
  • Playback during recorder uncompressed or compressed
  • The entire capture and playback simple file base
  • RS422 Sony 9-pin Slave or Master
  • Single storage volume for capture, editing, playback, and broadcast

Once the content is recorded onto the Metropolis Media Server, the Flypack is then moved into the studio setting, where the editors of FC X, Avid, or Adobe are ready to plug into their network. (Keep in mind the steps we have saved in the the process by not having to move any of the footage from the camera to another medium for post-production)

Once the Flypack is brought into the post, you simply connect the optical cable from the Flypack to the post-fiber channel switch. When you power up you are able to access the media portion of the content and can begin working and editing directly from Metropolis media drive, the same media drive that you used initially to capture your content at the best possible resolution that your camera can offer without any sacrifice in quality. GVS offers the Nomadic 2U Optical media storage designed specifically to operate with low power consumption and noise reduction in order to make the product more suited for a studio setting.

If the post requires continuous editing, you simply remove the Nomadic Optical media drives and replace them with a new set. This is ideal for companies that are always on go, and require the ability to do constant filming.
