Does changing the battery involve a full reboot of the system as in a PC?

I'm bringing up the question because of the references to Windows and how long a PC takes to get operating again after a power down. In some situations that could be too long, if it's a problem perhaps a small built in battery could keep the system going long enough for battery changes. Basically, you won't get pictures, but the OS is still working for a few minutes.

XP should be setup for hybernate, rather than standby or shutdown, that will aid battery changes with fast OS restart.

Brian,

The SI-1920HDVR will be shipping with Windows XP embedded. The boot times will be much faster than full blown XP.

Anton Bauer has hot swap battery mounts to always keep power to the camera if you want 100% up time.

Just looking at the stills and I'm impressed! I hope QuickTime/Final Cut Pro support comes soon. I have a feature I'm shooting later this summer with cinematographer Jon Fordham. We'd love to take the camera for a spin!

Head on Wire Camera - Spoon

Here is the rig the "Spoon" team built with the remote camera head!

http://www.siliconimaging.com/Digita...ad_on_wire.jpg

"Here is the first rugged set ready head on wire si1920. It's a nice size and weight. We will be recording and controling on wire so the operator only shoots for composition the rest is controlled at the wafian....Both heads are making excellent images. Everyone here is crowded around the monitors in disbelief. Very very excited. We shoot tommorow."

Can't wait to see some of their footage!

Some great pics of the heads in action on Spoon, including a Glydecam shot showing how easy it is to mount the head on a rig and fly it.
