Three Miles

We've been working with our friend Will over at Advantech Studios on a few short films. More about the current project later, but here's the first film that was done a couple of months ago.
The setting is at Calabogie Motorsports Park.



High quality quicktime version here.

Bruce Gregory(one of the owners of the track) and a few friends of his all got our in-car video service that day, and all at the same time. You can see some of our equipment mounted on their cars in this film. Watch all the fastest laps of their videos at here.


More films to come in the future.

RaceDV at Koni Challenge

We're working with Tyler Givogue, a good friend to RaceDV and a great race car driver. Here's the video from his latest race. They started 10th and we're up to 7th before having a brake failure. Did you know brake pads can melt?!
They got the issue resolved and made their way back from the rear of the pack to finish 12th. Here's some in-car video with our data overlay.



I love race footage! Their last race of the season at Virginia International Raceway just ended. They finished 12th. Footage soon to appear on www.racedv.com.

Our Worst Video

What to write for a second post? I could introduce the team, but we've done that already on the team page. I could post some of our favourite videos, but there will be PLENTY of that later.

I figured I would show our worst video. This is the video I used as part of our demo at the Ottawa Venture and Technology Summit this past week.

This is from before RaceDV and our technology was even a concept. This is why RaceDV is in existence today. So even though this is our "worst" video, it is certainly one of the most important in RaceDV's history.

Tim is driving his sleeper Civic with a TypeR engine and Rob is riding shotgun(See team page for introductions). There's a camcorder mounted to a headrest mount right between the two front seats.




Needless to say, not as nice of a presentation as what we offer today. Not to mention I'm sure that was at least mildly unsafe.
I was there too, driving my Protege5. I wish I could have a RaceDV Memoir of my sessions that day. Our in-car video would have been far better than the camcorder memory I'm left with.
Here's an example.





I hope you enjoyed the videos. Brings a smile to my face when I see how far we've come in a year and a half.
