Colleges Go Tapeless with Focus' FireStore
The college athletic programs at Florida State University, Clemson University and The University of Tulsa have selected Focus Enhancements' FireStore FS-3 or DR-DV5000 Camera-Mount Direct to Edit (DTE) disk recorders for video production and analysis tasks.
"With FireStore FS-3 we can quickly and easily edit our football highlights packages in a fraction of the time it used to take us," said Mark Rodin, program manager for Florida State Universities' Seminole Productions.
DTE Technology is Campbell, Calif.-based Focus Enhancements' recording process that enables users to record video, audio, and time code directly to removable, FireWire disk drives in NLE native file formats. Formats include DV-OMF for Avid Xpress DV, QuickTime for Apple Final Cut, AVI 2 for Adobe Premiere, Pinnacle AVI, Canopus AVI, Matrox AVI, and many others.
