JVC projector and SGI Onyx to be used for NASA shuttle images


The JVC DLA-QX1 projector enables NASA’s Ice/Debris Team to view and analyze ultra-high-resolution images onto an 8ft wide screen.

As NASA awaits its return to flight, it has upgraded its visual analysis equipment at the Ice/Debris Image Analysis Facility at Kennedy Space Center. The JVC DLA-QX1 ultra-high-resolution projector will be used to analyze flight shuttle data in conjunction with the SGI Onyx visualization system from Silicon Graphics.

Upgrades to the Ice/Debris Facility are part of NASA’s preparation for the Discovery shuttle launch originally scheduled for July 13, but delayed due to technical difficulties. NASA monitors each shuttle launch using hundreds of cameras that capture images from every possible angle and phase of the launch.

Once the film and video images are gathered, they are uploaded onto SGI visualization and storage systems where the film is scanned and stored. The JVC DLA-QX1 projector enables NASA’s Ice/Debris Team to view and analyze ultra-high-resolution (2048x1536) images onto an 8ft wide screen.

This state-of-the-art system, installed by SGI Professional Services, allows NASA scientists to view images on a frame-by-frame basis and perform preliminary video analysis prior to a shuttle launch and provide more detailed film analysis following a launch for evaluation.
