NorPix Inc., a leader in the development of digital video recording software, today announced that it has developed a portable high-speed recording system capable of capturing high-definition images from multiple synchronized cameras.

The system – based on the company’s StreamPix Recording Station – uses a portable computing system housing a CXP frame grabber. In a demonstration of its capabilities, the system captured images from 2 synchronized high-definition (1920 x 1080, or 1080p) cameras at over 1000 frames per second (fps).

Images from the cameras are transmitted via the CoaXPress interface standard, over fiber optic cabling, at over 1000 fps each. This yields a data rate of over 8 Gbps. The system records images from these two cameras without any loss of data, and makes the images available for operator playback on-demand.

A multi-channel, high-speed recording system based around a portable computing architecture provides rapid setup and tear-down capabilities, while the fiber optic cabling offers the ability to have cable runs measured in hundreds of meters, as well as immunity from electromagnetic noise often found in industrial settings.

“Our intuitive StreamPix Recording Station software, combined with a powerful, portable computing platform, provides an outstanding tool for high-speed image capture and review,” said Luc Nocente, President of NorPix. “We are excited to be able to bundle our applications with innovative hardware platforms to enable new capabilities, and to meet the needs of our customers.”

NorPix’ StreamPix Recording Station is particularly well-suited to fulfill the high-speed image capture and review needs in a variety of applications and settings, with industry-leading features such as ring buffers for pre/post triggering of video recording, slow motion playback, and compatibility with a wide range of cameras and frame grabbers using industry-standard GigE Vision (including at 10 and 25 GigE), USB3 Vision, CoaXPress, and Camera Link interfaces. The system also enables the recording of audio, as well as ensures that all data is recorded with accurate timing by interfacing with IRIG A/B or GPS modules.
