FFV at the 2015 NAB Show:
New Replay System From FFV
At the 2015 NAB Show, FFV will introduce the newest addition to its Omega HD family of products.
The Studio Pro Replay is a compact replay and time-shift digital JPEG2000 video recorder. The new solution is ideal for broadcast delay, slow-motion sports replay, houses of worship needing to time-shift services, or any programming needing to prevent “wardrobe malfunctions.”
The Studio Pro Replay allows for replay of slow-motion clips while still recording the action, so operators don’t miss anything. Two half rack units fit in a single 2RU space. The Studio Pro Replay enables record and playback or pause, supporting ancillary data such as closed-caption CEA-608 and CEA-708 on four lines: 8, 9, 10, and 11 interlaced or progressive.
The Studio Pro Replay’s professional video and audio connections, with familiar VTR-style front-panel controls including a video confidence monitor, ensure the highest quality digital recording. Plus, the solution’s patented file access system guarantees delivery of a usable recording every time, with no corrupted files.

Reliable and well established Omega HD SPR & 2CH
The Omega HD Dual Channel (2CH) or Simultaneous Playback and Record (SPR) recorders are JPEG2000-based media recorders that can record and play back every frame, gen-lock multiple streams, and time-shift content. Using third-party serial controllers, users can shuttle content up to 100 times real-time speed in any direction. The SPR unit is great for affordable slow-motion applications at sports venues. The 2CH version is a great key-and-fill media record/playback unit compatible with just about every serial controller and able to frame-lock graphics and alpha channels for dynamic logo insertions.
Users can record and play back critical ancillary data such as 608/708 closed caption data and archive all broadcast programming with CEA 708 in the file or any ancillary data on lines 8 through 11.
