The race control story
The race-control system is based on Telestream’s Pipeline HD hardware encoder and a new multiclip Pipeline Replay application. The scalable, file-based system provides instant capture and synchronous display of the 18 HD camera feeds, enabling instant access, search, and analysis of an entire race event.
Quantum’s StorNext data-management software and CineSys’ disk storage also contributed to the system. The race-control system uses high-speed StorNext File System software from Quantum to provide simultaneous access of video content, including the ability to rewind and read while continuing to write from 18 HD cameras. CineSys provided on-site infrastructure, architecture, installation, and technical assistance.
