Focus Ships New FireStore DV Recorder
Focus Enhancements is now shipping its FireStore FS-3 portable DV disk recorder
The FS-3 features DTE (Direct To Edit) technology, which allows professionals to connect the recorder to most professional camcorders via FireWire to record video, audio and timecode directly to removable FireWire disk drives in non-linear editing native formats. This eliminates the need to capture, transfer, or convert clips prior to editing. Formats include DV-OMF for Avid Express DV, Quicktime for Apple Final Cut, AVI 2 for Adobe Premiere, Canopus AVI, Matrox AVI and others.
The FS-3 weighs approximately two pounds, and includes a shock protection buffer, control panel, backlit LCD and 4-pin XLR power input. 6-pin external FireWire drive connection and a 6-pin DV input/output port are also featured.
