Le Mans Series 2007
Round 4. Spa 1000 Kilometers. August 17th - 19th 2007

A TransVu mobile digital recorder is fitted to the RML MG Lola EX264 throughout the season, where it is exposed to some of the most rigorous conditions a CCTV system is ever likely to encounter. The system provides invaluable reference for the drivers, who are able to compare lines, braking points and tactics in a way never previously possible. The footage below was gathered during Friday Free Practice, and illustrates a complete out-lap of the Spa circuit by Thomas Erdos, including the re-profiled Bus Stop chicane, the La Source hairpin, and an interesting dice with the Quifel ASM Lola.

The technology employed in the TransVu CCTV system is based on very powerful media processors, which allow the unit to compress in multiple formats simultaneously, as well as trans-coding from one format to another or at differing rates. All TransVu recordings can be saved to a solid-state media and then made available in evidential quality MJPEG, whilst simultaneously being viewed live or recorded over a low bandwidth link using MPEG4. The Flash video device employed here displays footage captured directly from the TransVu unit mounted on the EX264, although at a considerably reduced resolution and quality to make on-line viewing possible.
