VTR storage workstations asset management

GVS is continually developing and manufacturing tape recorders, the most cost effective, compatible and rugged digital recording systems, mixing and processing of the video signal from DV to 2K.

GVS9000 VTR preferences & specifications

Absolute Max Shuttle Speed
Real time speed

Auto Open Movie on Locate
The GVS9000VTR creates a list of all the movies that can easily be selected and programmed to play through transport commands. Movies respond to timecode and locate commands within the range of the movie timecode.

Build Video Overviews
Automatic generation of filmstrip sequence preview generated for virtual search and stored inside the movie file

Capture TC Correction mSecs
This insures that timestamp on the captured movie is frame accurate to the picture. 9 pin connection.

DV Out Sync
Special settings are designed for each of your output sources, from HD to DV with sync options.

Emulate 9-Pin
A protocol which emulates a 9-pin video deck providing extremely good overall compatibility, with the ability to select various parameters to insure 100% compatibility.

Enable GPI Event Sequencer
Allowing comprehensive studio control for foley and ADR recording through sync points marked in the timeline

Force Lock To Sound Timebase
This function ensures that timebase is selected from the specific source during capture.

Full Screen On
This provides the ability to have full video source on LCD or video screen.

Include TC track text display when recording
All video in GVS9000VTR timecode tracks can optionally be displayed as a text area above or below the movie.

Limit Capture To
GVS9000VTR offers the specific pre-programming of time and length of footage that would need to be captured.

MTC Stop Overshoot Correct Frames
When chasing timecode, VTR automatically plays when the timecode starts and stops when the timecode stops. This provides complete control of backup and compensation for any timecode ¡¥run on¡¦.

MTC overrides Video Hardware timestamp
Allows for manual entry of the timecode track during recording via MTC through Midi, from an external LTC feed, and can be automatically generated or imported from a number of different interfaces

9-pin ID
GVS9000VTR can identify itself as a variety of different VTRs. This allows user to choose the status returned by VTR when requested via 9-pin.

9-Pin Preferences
True 9-pin control frames are clocked out in sync with your controller, maintaining perfectly drift-free playback at all times.

Operational Performance
• Rec/Play time per 1,800 GB 2048 x 1556 (~1.5 hours)
• Visually lossless: 1920 x 1080 4:4:4 (~2 hours)
• SD (~7 hours)
(Storage estimates based on real-world recording tests. Exact storage results vary depending on content, source quality, frame rate, and image settings.)

Overlays options
The overlays options are timecode burns, Feet+Frame burns, free text burns, traditional wipe style Video streamers, 3,2,1 count down punches, German style running cursors, and more. It has an event sequencer to make sure that the right burn appears at exactly the right time, all in real time with out rendering any video.

PreRoll Movie
GVS9000 VTR offers a "Pre-Roll" mode which will automatically pre-cache data and ready to start playback instantly.

Preview During Capture
Its purpose input SDI or HD as well as at its video output.

Relocate to start on stop
Ability to snap back to the start of playback after stopping.

Reopen Bin on startup
Save movies as a document for specific time reload.

Restore Video Settings
The expedited the production, GVS9000VTR creates audio and video setting so any previous parameters can be recalled to ensure the exact form. When VTR enters E-E or record mode, it will use the default parameters saved from session to session

Rollback time Seconds
Instantly moves the video playhead back by a fixed amount.

Scrub Filter Ticks
Accommodates control software issuing long strings of repeated locate commands with the same value to prevent repeatedly relocating to the same position.

GVS9000 VTR can be programmed to chase an external timecode source in order to get the proper video frame to appear to coincide with the incoming frame of timecode.

Superimpose Graphics On Picture
Foley and ADR recording. One of the major architectural additions is for superimposing graphics on top of the movie pictures as they are played. The desired graphics are then applied over the top, and the finished frame is passed to the specified Video output.

Sync Tolerance Frames
Acting as an External timecode source, it constantly tracks the timecode values arriving from a number of different sources such as telecine, direct from digital camera, tape, direct to disk animation or another GVS9000 VTR.

Use Varispeed
Ability to Sync or bump the picture to Sync.

Video Head Disengage Threshold
GVS9000 VTR allows playback of picture at slower, and faster than real time.
