Clemson employs DNF Controls slow-motion controller
DNF Controls’ ST-304-DSR1K-T slow-motion controller is being used as part of an in-house stadium production system at Clemson University.
Deployed in a portable system that includes two Sony DSR-DR1000 hard disk drives, the DNF Controls unit enables slow-motion replay at Clemson Tigers soccer, tennis, baseball and basketball events while maintaining continuous record capability.
The DNF controller allows Clemson to get replays up much more quickly than it could with tape, enabling the staff to mark cue points, access that video instantly and play it out on the video board with control at any speed.
The team built the portable production system around the DNF Controls ST-304-DSR1K-T and Sony drives, adding one monitor for live action video and a second for cued material. The combination of the ST-304 and Sony DSR systems allows operators to mark cue points on the fly and play back video instantly, even as recording continues.
The DNF slow-motion controller, which supports two record and two playback channels, provides staff with a four-line display and a T-bar for slow-motion instant replay and single-keystroke cue marking for accessing up to 100 cue points.
