NASA got a brand new projector

This site has moved to

What we call a home theater projector NASA calls visual analysis equipment. Apparently, they installed JVC's D-ILA QX1 QXGA visual analyzer for its Ice/Debris Image Analysis Facility as a front end to its SGI visualization and storage system that fills up its hard drives with images and video from cameras that shoot before, after, and during the launch of shuttle.
"This state-of-the-art system, integrated by SGI Professional Services, allows NASA scientists to view images on a frame-by-frame basis and perform preliminary video analysis prior to a shuttle launch and provide more detailed film analysis following a launch for evaluation."
How do you feel? Would you like a mini version of this system in your house to replace your security cameras? You could look at every bird droppings in a slow motion from 100 different angles not including exhibition quality photographs of burglars.
