Racelogic's VBOX HD set to eliminate distortion

The new VBOX HD uses a 720p CMOS sensor with global shutter to expose each pixel simultaneously

2012 NAB Show

Stand no. C11148

BUCKINGHAM, England--A common complaint from professionals who use miniature HD cameras in high vibration situations is the 'jello' effect. This is caused by using a rolling shutter which scans the recorded image from top to bottom, leading to footage captured at high speed such as in a race car appearing blurred.

Racelogic specialise in developing video loggers for automotive applications where image accuracy is vital. Making its debut at NAB, the new VBOX HD uses a 720p CMOS sensor with global shutter to expose each pixel simultaneously, a feature which allows it to produce the sharpest image in its class.

With the camera capable of being mounted up to 5m away from its GPS synchronised remote logger, the affordable VBOX HD is highly versatile, allowing users to capture high definition video in h.264 format directly to an SD card without unwanted skew or wobble.

Unlike CCD (Charge-coupled device) based sensors the VBOX HD has been developed with a CMOS progressive global shutter, enabling it to resist the vertical smear caused by bright points of light. The camera is capable of producing rock steady pictures in places you would struggle to use conventional cameras.

The VBOX HD is ideal for use on moving vehicles and in motion capture. With the HD camera measuring just 21mm in diameter by 39mm, and capable of operating in many different temperatures, this device has the ability to record high definition video in the most challenging of environments.

Two camera versions are available for the broadcast industry; one with fixed 82 degree optics and the other with a C/CS mount facility allowing the user to fit a wide range of manually adjustable lenses. An optional internal GPS module is also available to apply a time stamp to individual video frames.

As well as providing users with the opportunity to capture high definition quality video, the new VBOX HD captures high quality (48 kHz) stereo audio is recorded via an external connector to give the user total control.

The official launch date for the VBOX HD is September 2012. For more information or to see the unit in action, visit our stand (C11148) or take a look at our website www.videovbox.com/hd.
