Grass Valley is launching the Turbo iDDR (intelligent digital disk recorder) at Infocomm in Las Vegas next month.

Leveraging the digital storage, networking and clip-creation capabilities of its Profile server line, the Turbo iDDR is part of the company's new ProLine, a series of products that will provide a complete acquisition-to-production workflow for ProAV applications. Built for today's ProAv workflows, the Turbo iDDR is geared towards university and corporate campuses, places of worship and commercial environments.

Sporting a price tag of just under $10,000, and smaller than a typical broadcast tape deck at 3RU, the Turbo iDDR can hold 10-40 hours of storage and perform the work of up to three VTRs. The Turbo iDDR supports Mac and PC-based content, including QuickTime files, Windows Media Video files and MPEG-2 and many still graphic formats. It also offers DVI outputs, Gigabit Ethernet and other connectivity topologies.
