ASTAR’s Series III supports unique multiple video capture support
ASTAR, Inc., announces a unique method of capturing video simultaneously from
multiple digital cameras. The integrated solution provides complete synchronization of simultaneous video
clips from digital cameras. The synchronized videos can be captured using ASTAR’s unique audio hit sensor
or by simply clicking the mouse.
“With the ever increasing use of digital video, it became imperative to provide a solution that allows
multiple digital video cameras to be used to capture a sports motion from multiple views” says Ray Barger,
CEO of ASTAR. “Capturing multiple video streams with our technology was not the real challenge. It was
providing a means to automatically synchronize them during capture. Our customers really like the inherent
ability in the Series III to touch only one tab button and get multiple videos to the same location quickly. We
felt it essential to provide this capability when capturing from multiple digital cameras simultaneously. The
new solution provides a lot of flexibility for our customer.”
The multiple camera capture technology can be for analog cameras as well. If using analog cameras, each
video is captured by a separate video capture device thus removing the need for splitters or mixers. Also
these capture devices can be either internal boards or external USB devices or a combination. Using analog
cameras negate the automate synchronization but the videos can be synchronized with the ASTAR software
after capture. This technology can also be used for mixing analog and digital cameras on the same system.
