This recorder allows Canon Professional HDV and DV camcorders to record to Compact Flash cards for a seamless file-based workflow. It can record over 2.2 hours of 1080i HDV on a single 32GB card, and the dual recording onto tape and CF card provides valuable back-up. It also creates custom NLE compatible (Final Cut Pro and Avid) clip and time code based metadata. You can log the metadata wirelessly during recording, and play back your thumbnails and video clips on the color LCD. (Supports MXF format).
