Datavideo low-cost HD recorders begin shipping at BVE 2013
Datavideo's new video recorders delivering very low cost HD capture are now available from resellers across Europe. The data recorder is replacing the VTR tape deck at the heart of nearly every production studio.
Datavideo's new HD models deliver all the advantages of tapeless production including very low running costs, long recording times and user-selected data rates. They will be demonstrated for the first time at BVE 2013 in London and are available for purchase now.
The HDR-60 desktop and HDR-70 rack-mounted models record HD video onto very affordable 2.5" hard drives. With a typical £50-£60 1TB disk holding well over 12 hours of 125Mb/s 1080 50i video, running out of capacity is never likely to be an issue. HD-SDI inputs with loop through and an HDMI output and simple hardware controls make the devices easy to use and to integrate into broadcast and AV workflows.
Allan Leonhardsen of Datavideo UK commented: "Recording the output from a production switcher or from a system camera is now straightforward and cost-effective with the new HDR models. At around £1250 with very low cost high capacity media, these recorders are terrific value."
Also shipping are Datavideo's HDV models -and . Capturing analogue video as MPEG-2 at 25Mb/s onto standard 2.5" disk drives, recording times can extend for more than a day. The DN appliances are ideal for education, houses of worship, compliance recording and video surveillance.
