The Matrox VS4Recorder Pro, a multi-camera recording and multiviewer app for use with Matrox VS4 quad HD capture cards, is now available.
Each VS4-based recording system captures up to four video and audio inputs to create files for use with apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for long-term storage.
H.264 is provided in either MOV or MP4 wrappers. AVI files can be created using the Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec. MOV QuickTime files can be created using DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD. Matrox noted that the VS4Recorder’s multiviewer capabilities “offer pristine video quality even when monitoring interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors.”
“Synchronised, frame-accurate, multichannel HD capture is simpler and more affordable than ever before,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager, Matrox Video. “With VS4 Recorder Pro, live event producers and video editors get the quality, versatility and intuitive control they want, at a fraction of the usual cost. Complete systems can be assembled for as little as $3500 and as much storage as needed can easily be added.”
Features include automatic input detection for on-site set up; event markers for Adobe Premiere CC so that while recording, users can highlight moments of interest for quicker post-event editing; and settings for capture duration and file switching without frame loss.
VS4-based systems are also recommended for multi-camera live production streaming with Telestream Wirecast for Windows or StudioCoast vMix software.
VS4Recorder Pro and the Matrox VS4 card lists as a bundle for €1,995, and the VS4Recorder Pro upgrade software is available to current VS4 card owners at €995.
