The SVS-8 standalone model or SVS-8 SAM is designed for applications where a truly universal streaming network video decoder is required to drive digital video recorders, video monitors and other devices that accept a composite video signal
A typical composite video signal
has a bandwidth of approximately 4.
A possible solution being explored by researchers at Light Blue Optics, Cambridge, UK, has been to convert a standard composite video signal
into a high-quality 2-D holographic video, in real-time.
PlanetCam's output is a standard NTSC composite video signal
, which can be viewed or recorded on a user-supplied monitor or videocassette recorder (VCR).
