Fast Forward Video unveils new portable DVR

At IBC2008, Fast Forward Video is showing its new NDT 200 portable digital video recorder (DVR), designed to replace tape-based recording devices. The new unit offers an improved mechanical design, greater tolerance to shock and vibration, and an enhanced user interface.

The NDT200 is roughly the same size as a Sony Video Walkman and records onto a 2.5in removable hard drive, providing a convenient recording medium while saving space in remote applications.

The touch-screen user interface and large push-button controls make the NDT 200 DVR easy to operate. All functions can be controlled via the touch-screen, soft buttons and LCD panel on top of the unit or from an external PC or VTR controller. Video clips can be recorded in the QuickTime format for playback on a PC or Mac or as FFV secure video files. They then can be downloaded to PC or Mac systems via the onboard USB 2.0 port or through the insertion of the removable hard drive into a suitably equipped desktop computer.

Standard features include selectable compression ratios (from 4:1 to 30:1), dual-channel audio, character displays, jog scan and scrub features as well as analog composite and S-video (Y/C) inputs and outputs. Optional upgrades include external trigger inputs, time-date stamp, time-lapse recording, and loop and pre-event recording. The recorder offers 4:2:2 processing compatible with full-frame, full-motion CCIR-601 files.

External control is available through optional machine control software, and the recorder may be powered through an external low-voltage DC input.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
