NAB: FOCUS ENHANCEMENTS ADDS TO MEDIA RECORDER LINE
Content has the same recording format and directory structure that other XDCAM EX devices use, allowing the files to easily integrate into an XDCAM EX workflow.
The FS-T1001 features a 2.4-inch color OLED display, two USB ports, and the ability to connect directly to an HD-SDI monitor. The unit can record 35 Mbps HQ mode or 25 Mbps SP mode. Focus expects the unit to be available in June for $5,995.
Focus Enhancements has also expanded the functionality of its ProxSys MA media archive server series with support for AVC Intra, AVCHD, and AVCCAM. The enhanced support gives Panasonic camera users a simple and affordable way to automatically ingest content, add custom metadata, and archive the content to redundant storage.
Finding and retrieving content is simplified via a Web browser-based Flash preview that is automatically generated during ingest. The preview remains on the ProxSys MA system with associated native and custom metadata. The original high resolution content can be retrieved from either Blu-ray Disc or USB HDDs for immediate use.
Two versions of the ProxSys MA media archive server are available. Both versions are based on a Windows XP Pro desktop server with the ProxSys MA application on a Linux virtual machine and feature 1TB of mirrored RAID internal storage. The standard ProxSys MA-10 features an internal Blu-ray disc burner and a single license for the ProxSys Media Transfer Utility for use on the local machine. The MA-50 uses a robotic Blu-ray burner that allows for automated burning and customizable label printing. The MA-50 also includes two licensed copies of the ProxSys Media Transfer Utility for local or remote (Mac or Windows) ingest.
The ProxSys MA-10 is available for $6,995 and the MA-50 is priced at $13,995. Both are currently shipping.
