Stack’s battery and wire–less system means unrivalled reliability and significantly reduced running costs with no user maintenance required during full service life. The Stack system is the smallest TPMS sensor on the market - 18mm diameter x 14mm depth (excl. valve stem); 15g weight.

Proven in the harshest environments, the flexible system supports a virtually unlimited number of wheel sets with just one module interrogating 1, 2 or 4 wheels – making it suitable for cars, trucks and bikes. CAN-bus output of pressures and temperatures allows easy integration with existing data logging systems.

As seen on TV: Stack DVR delights broadcasters. New Stack DVR provides stunning on-board pictures of Isle of Man TT races


The Isle of Man TT race festival is a test for bikes and riders. Those covering the event for TV also face challenges in capturing the action from the 38 mile course with bikes clocking an average speed of over 125mph.  Stack’s new DVR was chosen by SIS Live’s Special Cameras division to record on-board footage from the bikes.

Stack recently provided SIS Live Special Cameras with 14 DVRs as part of ITV's coverage of the Isle of Man TT race festival.  "SIS Live approached us to evaluate the DVR PRO against competitors.  It soon became clear that they needed better quality than was available.  After trials we supplied a new motorsport DVR2-400’s capable of recording up to 15Mbps. SIS Live declared the pictures the best they had seen from a solid-state device." said Stack's Managing Director, Alan Rock.

DVR2-500 screenshotDesigned with mobility and ruggedness in mind, Stack's DVRs deliver the highest quality  video recording even under the most extreme conditions. The DVRs capture video and audio that is equivalent or better than DV tape but far more tolerant than non solid-state devices to high-vibration and intense shock and temperatures. Stack DVRs feature a rugged machined aluminium housing designed and manufactured to protect the unit in harsh and extreme environments. The unit is compact and durable with no moving parts (other than the sealed CF card access door).  The card can be removed with ease and played back on a PC / laptop using a standard media player application or easily ingested into a professional editing system.  Video recordings can also be transferred to a PC over the USB link.

Employing MPEG-2 video compression to record high quality, real-time video and audio direct to a Compact Flash (CF) card, Stack's expanded range of Harsh Environment Digital Video Recorders features models to suit most mobile video requirements in markets as diverse as motorsport, broadcasting, defence and even space exploration. There are variants offering up to 4 camera inputs, higher bit-rate options for broadcast quality recordings, completely sealed to IP67, extended operating temperature ranges, and extended recordings capacity.

 

Addendum

Stack have added to their range of DVRs with models intended for broadcasters and other video professionals. Designed with mobility and ruggedness in mind, Stack's DVRs for video professionals deliver stunning picture quality even under the most extreme conditions. The DVR2-500 & DVR2-500M capture video and audio that is equivalent or better than DV tape but is immune to the susceptibility of non solid-state devices to shock, vibration and temperature.

The DVR2-500 & DVR2-500M offer 8 selectable fixed bit-rates (4 to 20 Mbps) and Variable Bit-Rate (VBR) that can achieve bit-rates in excess of 30Mbps, even up to 50Mbps - dependant on image content. This matches the maximum bit-rate of Blu-Ray (in comparison, DVD's maximum bit-rate is 9.8Mbps).

An option on the DVR2-500 & DVR2-500M is Intra-frame (I-frame) only record mode - a great benefit to video professionals using a non-linear editing system such as Avid or Final Cut Pro.

Stack Multi-Function Data Logging Systems Success


Stack today announced the market has responded very positively to the introduction of its Multi-Function Data Logging systems.  Technical agents that have taken delivery of them have reported that the new product is extremely competitive with other offerings in the marketplace. It’s quite simply the highest specification and the best value display system on the market today.

The products - launched at the beginning of the year - continue Stack’s commitment to bring the company’s proven technology to all Racers at all levels. The new system makes available fully upgradable Data Logging to all racers with prices from £799/$1600!

Each system consists of a single multi-function module containing hardware already installed to provide a wide variety of Data Logging functions. The module has the basic functions available out of the box. The single box system incorporates the hardware capabilities for powerful upgrade already built-in awaiting simple, fast activation by PIN code activation - making upgrading problem-free and convenient.  This gives users enormous flexibility by allowing racers to choose (and pay for) only those features that they need now – as their needs grow, so does the system!  Of course, we hope that Club Racers get the Stack habit early and stay with us.

Stack Multi-Function Data Logging Systems SuccessIt is the impressive performance specifications and features that make the Multi-Function systems such great value. 

The fully upgradable systems with CLUBMAN, SEMI-PRO and PRO option levels allow racers to choose their own entry point into the system, and then grow the system over the years.

The Clubman level systems is aimed squarely at the budget-priced competitors in the market, the Semi Pro level of systems for more advanced requirements whilst at the top end, the PRO system MFD’s and MFR’s are more than capable of taking on the most extensive measuring tasks.
 

Highlights include:

Early feedback from our technical agents and distributors show that as well as the sheer muscle of the systems (faster recording, bigger memory, higher resolution), buyers are impressed by the  convenience of wireless Data Logging (via WiFi / WLan) – some have compared it to having gained pit team member.

No other display or data logging systems can match the MFD or MFR for user configurability and features either as standard or a pin-code away from instant activation.  We mean it when we say: “You’ll never outgrow a Stack System!”

Stack DVR on top of the world with Bear Grylls


Stack's DVR was used on a daring mission to fly over Mount Everest. Mission Everest, a feature-length documentary, follows Bear and his friend Gilo Cardozo as they prepare to fly over the summit of Mount Everest strapped to flimsy paraglide chutes powered by backpack motors called paramotors to raise money for a children's charity.

Stack's harsh-environment recorder was used in action shots both in testing in the UK and in the extreme climate of the Himalayas, operating at temperatures of -60C at 29,500 feet.

The Stack DVR is housed inside a Ruggedised and sealed enclosure, specifically designed and manufactured to protect the unit in harsh and extreme environments. The unit is compact and durable with no moving parts (other than the sealed flash card access door), and is capable of operating where normal VCRs or DV recorders are not. Stack's DVR was developed to meet the extreme conditions of Motorsport: conditions matched by the highest peaks on Earth.

Stack's DVR technology enables recording of high quality (broadcast standard) real-time video and audio direct to a PC flash card. This card can be removed with ease and played on a PC or laptop using a standard media player.

Stack's DVR's robustness is increasingly recognised by programme makers as the answer to location "filming" in hazardous environments where normal broadcast equipment often fails.

Stack News graphicBear Grylls is a seasoned adventurer who served with the Special Air Service, a special forces unit of the British army, where he was trained as a survival expert. In 1998 at age 23, Bear became the youngest British climber to ever complete a summit and descent of Mount Everest.

The mission raised $1 million for the Global Angels Foundation, a charity that supports children in Africa.

Bear’s Mission Everest was produced for Channel 4 in the UK and Discovery Channel in the US by Diverse Productions.
