Focus Enhancements offers DTE recorder for Canon HDV camcorders

Focus Enhancements has partnered with Canon U.S.A. to develop the FS-CV Direct To Edit recorder for Canon's XL and XH series of professional HDV cameras.

The recorder offers 100GB of hard drive video storage, enabling videographers to record edit-ready HDV or DV streams directly to disk. The recorder also gives Canon XL and XH users the ability to tag media with custom metadata in the field while shooting.

Video professionals can connect a browser-capable mobile device or laptop to the FS-CV via a wired or wireless network connection (using an optional USB WiFi dongle) and assign custom metadata. During post production, users can simply transfer clips from the FS-CV to their NLE system. All the information assigned during the shoot is transferred with the clip.
