FFV to introduce camera-mounted J2K HD-SDI recorder
At NAB2008, Fast Forward Video (FFV) will unveil its new Elite HD, a camera-mounted JPEG 2000 (J2K) compression codec-based digital video recorder (DVR) and player designed to record HD-SDI video signals.
Designed to mount on the back or base of a camcorder, the Elite HD accepts an incoming HD-SDI video signal with up to eight channels of embedded audio and uses J2K to record at data rates up to 100Mb/s. Video is stored to an off-the-shelf, hot-swappable 2.5in SATA drive.
The Elite HD enables streamlined, file-based workflows. It can be easily detached from a camcorder and connected directly to a nonlinear editing system via USB cable.
The Elite HD supports all HD-SDI camcorders and other video sources with compatible rates.
