Graphin announced that it will put on sale soon a 4K-compatible uncompressed digital recording system, dubbed “MACH-REC,” which uses an exchangeable recording medium.
MACH-REC is a 4K-compatible uncompressed digital recording system using an exchangeable recording medium. The write/read performance of a memory magazine (BigMAG) is 6.4 Gbps (800 Mbytes per second) and it is scheduled to improve the speed further. A single MACH-REC system makes it possible to record videos with a 4K camera, a 4K 3D camera and a high-speed camera and to replay them on the 4K display. With a 512-Gbyte memory magazine, the system enables the recording of a 4K Raw12-bit, 60-fps video of about 11 minutes, a 4K RGB24-bit, 30-fps video, etc. It is also possible to connect the system with faster-speed cameras or equipment by using two or more MACH-REC units.
MACH-REC can also cope with standardized signal formats such as Raw and Camera Link by linking I/O units with outer equipment such as cameras and displays. A 10-Gbps I/O unit can be used with optical cables (AOC, 100 meters). MACH-REC also operates on an industrial battery under remote control by an iPad for outdoor video shooting.
