Using High Definition Video at the University of Costa Rica

Time 04/22/08 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

The proper use of High Definition Video brings a new kind of tool for knowledge transmission. The detail obtained in a sequence of images in High Definition offers a new dimension in media productions. For instance, during earthquake engineering research at LanammeUCR lab, the detail of the fissures in a fracture of concrete isn't captured by a video camera with standard definition, but using a high definition camera is possible to record and transmit tests in a useful manner. The strong floor area and the apparatus used for testing are unique in Central America and using high definition video and other technologies brings the possibility to give a new tool to students and researchers across the country, avoiding physical presence during testing. Another example is the use of high definition video in surgery, where this technology provides to the audience an experience near to immersion. Comparing the format of video between standard definition and high definition we have more than twenty times more pixels, displaying the sharpness necessary to see tiny details that were not visible before. A low cost solution can be built with a HDV camera and a PC running software like hDVTS, VideoLAN or Microsoft ConferenceXP.
