Matrox Video has announced the immediate availability of VS4Recorder, a new standalone multi-camera recording app bundled with Matrox VS4 quad HD capture cards. VS4Recorder gives live event producers independent control over capture of the four inputs connected to the VS4 to create files for use with editing apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for archiving. 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.
“With VS4Recoder, multi-camera recording of live events has never been so simple — automatic input detection makes on-site setup quick and easy,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager, Matrox Video. “VS4Recoder also functions as a multiviewer, offering pristine video quality even when monitoring interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors.”
Matrox VS4 card is now available priced at €1295/£995/$1495. Full turnkey HD recording systems are available from some certified systems builders starting under $5000. Matrox VS4Recorder is available to registered VS4 users as a free download from the Matrox website.
