FFV Springs Ahead With Recorders

Fast Forward Video will show several of its broadcast-quality digital video recorder products at NAB2007.

FFV's flagship Omega is now available with HD. The new Omega HD can record either SD or HD video with high-quality JPEG2000 compression up to 300 Mbps. The recorder allows users to simultaneously record, play, and store multiple SD and HD video files, and create video clips, loops, and playlists using the front panel for many applications, including graphics and key fill, spot insertion, and instant replay.

FFV's new Xi Series is a new multi-use digital video recorder delivering broadcast-quality digital video in either single- or dual-channel models, offering fixed or removable SATA hard drives, optional SDI, and full variable speed playback control.

As part Grass Valley's Open Alliance Partnership initiative, FFV has developed a new dockable digital recording solution for existing analog cameras that incorporates the Grass Valley REV PRO Digital Media Drive. The XSX camera-based DVR is the first of what could be many FFV products supporting Grass Valley's REV PRO media. FFV will market this A/D conversion device, using a built-in REV PRO drive that mounts on the back of an existing analog camera and converts the signal from analog to digital, so that it can be recorded on REV PRO media. This new product, in essence, turns the analog camera into a file-based digital recorder, supporting tapeless news and production workflows.

Fast Forward Video will be in booth C9720.
