Also on display will be the HD3, a compact all-in-one DVR designed specifically for on-set motion picture and television production. The HD3 features JPEG2000 compression for optimal HD and SD image quality. The HD3 is available in either single- or dual-channel configurations. The system features a third-party monitor and uses removable, hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA drives that are compatible with FFV��s complete HD line of products.

FFV will also show its Omega HD and Micron HD DVR. Using the Omega HD recorder, users can simultaneously record, play, and store multiple SD and HD video files and create video clips, loops, and playlists using the simple-touch front panel. The Micron HD offers up to eight hours of record time and is fully compatible with all of the company’s HD products.

FFV will be at Booth C12719.
