Digital Camera Movies

Project:

Summary

During SPICULE, the NSF/NCAR HIAPER GV (Tail Number N677F) flew a 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.

Archive note

Digital camera movies from a subset of RF02 are available from a camera mounted in the cockpit of the GV.
