The FS-100-160 Direct To Editฎ portable HD recorder is ideal for long-form DVCPRO HD recording by offering hours of continuous recording. Equipped with a 160GB hard drive and Focus Enhancement's version 4.0 firmware upgrade, the FS-100-160 allows users to record up to 2.5 hours of DVCPRO HD 720p/1080i, 5.2 hours of DVCPRO50 or 10.4 hours of DVCPRO in QuickTime or P2 MXF files.
The sleek, lightweight FS-100-160 is designed to be easily mounted onto the AG-HVX200 P2 HD camcorder and includes a comprehensive backlit display, menu system, and buttons that provide easy control and management.
Focus Enhancement's version 4.0 firmware update expands the functionality of the FS-100-160 by adding native frame rate recording (720p PN) modes for dramatically increased recording time (6.5 hours in 720p24PN or 5.25 hours in 720p25/30PN) and the ability to record variable frame rates for slow and fast motion effects.
In addition, version 4.0 offers QuickTime Reference Movie recording, which enables long record sequences to appear as a single file for easy transporting/importing.
