LITTLE FERRY, NEW JERSEY, July 28, 2004 - Demonstrating the rock-solid reliability of its family of digital voice logging and archiving systems, Eventide today announced the successful deployment of its VR320 to the Airfield Lieutenant Marsh branch of Civil Aviation Authority of Chile (D.G.A.C.) at the South Pole. According to Ing. Gloria Vera Leiva, Electrical Engineer, D.G.A.C., (pictured above) the unyielding performance of the 16-channel Eventide VR320 has successfully withstood the harsh elements associated with a demanding environment like Antarctica.
"The VR320 has a great storage capacity, low levels of maintenance and versatile digital recording capabilities, as well as high-quality reproduction and user-friendly programming," Levia said. "Despite the harsh environmental conditions in Antarctica, the Eventide VR320 has proven itself to be a highly dependable logging and archiving system."
The D.G.A.C. is an institution of the state responsible for security standards to all airports along its national territory. It maintains implemented recording systems in each airfield and airport throughout the country to monitor, record, and archive all air communications. The Airfield Lieutenant Marsh, located on King Jorge's Island, has implemented the Eventide VR320, being utilized at 70 percent of its capacity, to record and archive the air operations carried out in the specific zone.
According to Gordon Moore, General Manager, Eventide Communications Division, the proven success of the VR320 underscores Eventide's commitment to fail-proof digital logging and archiving technology. "We are excited that the VR320 has been a proven success at D.G.A.C.," Moore said. "In an application that requires the logging and archiving of all air traffic in a specific territory, stability and dependability are paramount regardless of the environmental conditions."
Eventide has recently introduced its fourth-generation digital loggers, the VR615 and VR778. The new digital logging and archiving systems are the world's-first to operate on the Linux platform. The VR615 and VR778 can operate as a stand-alone unit or function as a network server. Storage capabilities include a standard mirrored RAID-1 array with dual 120GB hard disks, which can record 19,800 channel hours at 13.3 kb/s. Also standard is a DVD-RAM offering 1,540 of channel hours of storage per DVD.
