Fast Forward Video’s new portable hard drive uses J2K compression

Fast Forward Video’s Elite HD is one of the first camera-mounted digital video recorders and players to harness the J2K compression codec for recording HD-SDI video signals.

Designed to mount on the back of a camcorder or used as a standalone DVR, the Elite HD accepts up to eight channels of embedded audio and records at data rates up to 100Mb/s. Video is recorded to a standard 2.5in hot-swappable SATA drive, which provides up to 10 times more storage than onboard systems.

The Elite HD gives broadcasters a new option for recording high-quality video from any camera that provides an HD-SDI output at 1080i or 720p while simultaneously increasing record times, reducing recording media costs and streamlining workflow.

While other onboard camcorder recording systems use high-cost, proprietary media and record using traditional MPEG-based compression systems, the Elite HD captures the camera’s HD-SDI output using near lossless J2K compression.
