The Video Binloop cage accommodates up to 16 reproducer cards. Clips are stored on Compact Flash media, so there are absolutely no moving parts to wear out. Each card can hold hours of video, depending upon the Compact Flash size selected. Simply copy files — thousands of them, if you like — from your PC to the Compact Flash card.
The Video Binloop locks to NTSC or PAL video sync, and reads or generates linear timecode at many different SMPTE and EBU rates.
Control the Video Binloop using contact closures, RS-232, MIDI, and Ethernet — all simultaneously! Reproducer cards or whole Binloops can be grouped to respond to the same command, allowing a single event to control hundreds of tracks.
Encode your video in MPEG-2 at up to 15Mbps — about twice the bitrate of most DVDs. Composite and component video outputs are standard, and SDI (SMPTE-259M) digital video is also available. When playing video, each of the sixteen tracks may be multiplexed with stereo or Dolby AC3 audio—that’s almost 100 channels of audio!
