At IBC2008, Solid State Logic (SSL) demonstrated its new Studio Recorder application. Studio Recorder is a new stand-alone application within SSL’s MediaWAN family of products, intended as a replacement for current VTR recorders. It provides the full functionality of tape, including full linear recording capabilities, and allows record, pause, rewind and rerecord into a single file, ideal for studio recording where a single, complete recording is required with no need to reassemble multiple files in post production. Studio Recorder provides a 10-second preroll of the last recording so camera staff and presenters can see the last event and prepare for the next part of the take. The result is a single media file that is immediately ready to air.
In a world where the move to a tapeless media environment brings many obvious advantages, Studio Recorder reinstates a proven workflow advantage established in traditional tape-based studios moving to tapeless production systems.
Studio Recorder is also available as part of SSL’s Gravity, a content acquisition, management and distribution platform that provides all the encoding and transcoding tools required for fast package production, coupled with the capability of generating multiple, simultaneous output formats in different resolutions to cover any broadcasting situation.
