FOCUS Enhancements unveils new portable DV disk recorder

FOCUS Enhancements has added a new addition to the FireStore family. FireStore FS-3 is a portable DV disk recorder that mounts directly to professional DV camcorders. It offers the same benefits as previous FireStore models by eliminating capturing in the video production process to provide access from NLE applications.



The FS-3 is based on FOCUS Enhancements' DTE Technology, a solution that allows video, audio and timecode to be recorded directly in native file formats to removable FireWire disk drives.

The FireStore FS-3 weighs approximately two pounds. It includes electronic shock protection, a full-featured control panel, a backlit LCD, 4-pin XLR power input, a 6-pin external FireWire drive connection and a 6-pin DV video input/output port.

It is based on FOCUS Enhancements' DTE Technology, a solution that allows video, audio and timecode to be recorded directly in native file formats to removable FireWire disk drives. DTE supports NLE file formats such as DV-OMF for Avid Xpress DV, QuickTime for Apple Final Cut, AVI 2 for Adobe Premiere, Canopus AVI and Matrox AVI. Recording in native NLE file formats allows video professionals to eliminate the need to capture, transfer, or convert files before editing.

The FS-3 is configured for professional DV camcorders including Sony, Canon, Ikegami, Panasonic, and other camcorders that feature a DV video input/output port and either an Anton Bauer, V-Mount, or NP style battery system. Smaller camcorders are supported with off the shelf battery mount adapters.

The FireStore FS-3 will be available this summer.
