Fast Forward Video launches 220 mbps straight-to-edit DVR

6 March 2012

sideKick HD, making its international debut at the 2012 NAB Show, is designed to ease production workflows and satisfy the demands of both producers and post production editors. It enables customers to get the most out of their camcorders without having to compromise on quality.  While the onboard recorders of most camcorders typically deliver a data stream of only 30 megabits per second, the sideKick HD is able to record at 220 megabits per second. As a true straight-to-edit DVR, the sideKick HD records to off-the-shelf, removable 2.5-inch SSD drives in native ProRes (for Apple Final Cut Pro) or DNxHD (Avid) NLE formats. Bringing files into the NLE environment is a simple matter of moving the disk from the SideKick to the computer; no time-consuming ingest or transcoding operations are required. FFV’s sideKick HD Studio is a new, rackmountable version of FFV’s powerful sideKick camera-mounted DVR for use in base stations and studio locations. Occupying only a half RU in width and 2RU in height, sideKick HD Studio is directly compatible with the camera-mounted sideKick HD, giving users the ability to transfer field footage stored on the unit’s 2.5-inch SSD directly into the sideKick HD Studio for easy integration with NLE systems and other content sources for fast and seamless editing and playback to air.  C6313
