Jason, you can record on tape without compression.......
Go buy a SDLT600. :)

36 Mbytes/s (72 with its internal 2:1 LOSSLESS compression)

Not trying to be agressive, but you are not the only person in this forum, so if you want it pure big and RAW, there is no problem.
That's the funny thing about this system, if you build it you can have it the way you like!!
But please let others discuss what they want. (Did I overreact :) )

Do we have to go with compression? Can't we compress after the fact ...
So far, the two projects (Obin's and mine) are talking strictly raw, uncompressed data to disk. Period. Any talk of compression on-the-fly is for the future. (Though possibly near-future.) And I believe there will always be an option to capture raw and process offline.

Yep :-)

Sorry, I'm not really sure if this is a group software thing going on, or little side discussions. Sometimes it has felt from the traffic that group consensus was moving towards a compressed solution, but if we can do whatever we want, then that's good.

How much Jaun, any links? I have been considering the use of backuptape to archive footage (and maybe record it). One of the biggest problems with broadcast tape, is that the broadcast manufacturers control it and price it out of reach.

Thanks.

Wayne.

Wayne, I'm pretty sure an uncompressed tape system is out of your reach. :)

Google, search for SDLT.
It is a well known standard with support of the biggest computer companies.
Every new generation is backwards compatible and tapes cost around $ 45.

Is tape back-up fast enough to record to?

I think you'll have to use it as offline, and even then, it's only 130GB a tape for AIT-2, and you need SCSI for most DLT's ($$$).

SDLT600. :)

300 GB/ 600 GB that's why it is SDLT "600".

Anyway, an ultra 160 card at $400 is ridiculous against its price :) , hahahahaha....

Why? It's only $7,750.95!

It doesn't matter, just another option for people. It is more about saving and reusing a $1000 dollers of Hard disks per major production (we are aiming for 1080 and eventually SHD in the future) many of thousands per year, and it might be very cheap compared to buying a broadcast/digital film tape mechanism. For some professional people and indies, that is going to be a major bonus.

I posted a good Toms hardware review of tape backup on one of the threads, I think that the stats were even more impresive than the one above (I think they were way over 200Mb/s=SHD). I think they might be a lot cheaper than that device to. They are doing a Raid 5 8 drive review at the moment.

On compression/raw, they are only doing what we can do for the moment, pie in the sky, fantasy etc etc compression comes latter.

Don't forget the PCI-E one.

i have a question:

..a camera that shoots at a resolution of 2048x1536 would obviously require a great deal of bandwidth and storage... however, if you were going to crop the image in post to a cinemascope format closer to 2048x900, would it be possible to design the software to only capture a window of that size??

Absolutely. These sensors support "windowing," where you can choose the area of the sensor that you are retrieving. Since you are retrieving less data, you reduce the required bandwidth. (Of course, you could also choose to speed up the frame rate.)

have those people who have worked with these cameras noticed a considerable amount of strobbing when panning or tracking?

To everybody.

Another big question came to my mind.
Why Steve Nordhouser and many other people are so concerned about Sensor's seneitivity (I mean the sensors we discuss here)???
From the specs I've seen the sensors we are discussin or using here are far more sensitive than a normal e.g. Sony 3 CCD Broadcasting camera.
What am I missing here?
