Fast Forward Video introduces eClips DVR

At NAB2008, Fast Forward Video (FFV) will introduce eClips, an easy-to-use digital video recorder (DVR) for live broadcast production.

The compact eClips gives broadcasters and cable providers instant, on-the-fly access to video still/clip stores, animated graphics and audio clips for enhancing live news, sports and educational programs.

Available for either SD or HD broadcasts, eClips provides large touch-screen controls as a user interface. Producers can ingest video in real time or download video files from standard formats, such as AVI, and then generate playlists manually or from the system’s library database. At ingest, producers can capture a visual thumbnail from any frame within the clip to make the thumbnail more descriptive and easier to identify.
