Продающия история

February, 2019 – Ampex Data Systems, a division of Delta Information Systems Inc., announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Airbus Defense and Space to supply TuffServ222 (TS222) Multi-channel Video Recorders, in support of the Government of Canada’s Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue Aircraft Replacement (FWSAR) project.

The CC-295 variant of the Airbus C-295 will be the new FWSAR aircraft for the Royal Canadian Air Force, replacing the CC-115 Buffalo and the legacy CC-130H Hercules fleets. The turbo-prop C-295 is in use in 28 countries, mostly for military transport, but also for maritime/overland surveillance and anti-submarine warfare.

Ampex’s TS222 Video Recorder records, encodes, reproduces and streams SD & HD-SDI video with embedded metadata. The TS222 Video Recording System is designed to support simultaneous recording, reproduction, and streaming of both high-definition and standard-definition video. For this project, the TS222 will include capabilities such as multiple input and output video interfaces, additional video channels, and slow-motion replay at different speeds.

“Being selected for this important program confirms our commitment to delivering rugged, reliable, and high-performance video recorder solutions for critical air missions” said Jim Orahood, Vice President / General Manager of Ampex Data Systems. “The TS222 consistently delivers an outstanding video recording capability to our customers in support of their advanced mission requirements.” Mr. Orahood further stated, “In addition to our TS222, our TuffServ product line provides excellent performance and functionality in addition to flexible and cost-effective system architecture.”
