We are demonstrating a high-speed video camera and recorder system that captures 8-bit image data at 500 frames per second and stores 500 frames of 640 x 480 pixel image data in solid-state digital memory. The base configuration contains 160 MBytes of dynamic RAM and can be expanded to 2.5 GBytes for 8000 frames of storage. The camcorder synthesizes an RS-170 output from the digital store. This standard video output can drive a monitor for viewing or drive a video cassette recorder for archiving the stored event. The camcorder is designed for enhancement to 2000 frames per second.
