Rodney Grubbs, chairman of NASA's DTV Working Group and a principal investigator for the agency's advanced video projects, leads the keynote speakers at Government Video Expo 2013. Grubbs' topic will be "NASA & 4K Cameras: Current and Futuer Applications."
Starting at 10:30a.m. on the main stage in the GV Expo exhibition hall, the talk will present a case study of 4K applications used to document NASA's launch operations. NASA currently uses 4K and digital cinema cameras as part of its operations and has plans to further deploy the technology with novel applications in the future. Can 4K replace the still-current use of film cameras for the highest-quality launch visuals?
NASA often leads government agencies with its use of new technology, pioneering such things as compressed digital video from moon walkers. How NASA works with new imaging technology will pave the way for other government agencies in the future.
Grubbs' keynote talk is expected to run for 30-45 minutes, and there will be a question & answer period afterward.
