Forward-Looking Digital Camera Movies - Preliminary [EOL/RAF]

Summary

During HIPPO-1, the GV_N677F flew a forward looking digital camera for in-flight video capture. Individual photo jpeg images were captured once per second during flights. Images taken after dark have been stripped from this archive. Remaining images were converted to Quicktime movie files. The movies are h.264 codec playable with Quicktime (Mac and Windows), xine, (linux) and mplayer (many platforms). The original images are 1024x768 pixels and were recorded at 1 frame/second. The movies are set to play back at 512x384 pixels and 15 fps. Note: The camera was not operating during RF09, ceased recording about 20min after takeoff for RF06, and did not start working until RF07 was nearly over.
