SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — GEOINT Booth 475 — To completely overhaul a film and video lab that had been working in much the same fashion for 50 years, the 30th Space Communications Squadron at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) has installed storage technology from SGI to create an all-digital production environment. Similar to SGI(R) installations in Hollywood but handling data streams with much higher frame rates, the high-performance SGI(R) InfiniteStorage SAN enables real-time media production and postproduction of multiple 4K data streams. The SGI SAN system, installed in late July 2007, is used to monitor, test and evaluate the performance and engineering design of a number of spacecraft and missile programs for the United States Air Force, a variety of U.S. government agencies including NASA and the National Weather Service, and a growing number of commercial interests.
