VITEC presents Focus FS-H50 Portable Proxy Recorder at IBC 2013

VITEC will showcase the Focus FS-H50 Proxy Recorder, the first model of its proxy recorder product line, at this year's IBC – Booth 7.J31. See Vitec new products overview here.

FS-H50 is a portable, camera-mount, H.264 standard definition recorder for workflows/applications requiring video quality and optimized video file size. Ideal applications include breaking news, video dailies, sports events and online video sharing.

Designed for both video professionals and enthusiasts, the Focus FS-H50 simplifies acquisition workflow by recording low bit-rate H.264 clips. The FS-H50 records clips independently or in parallel with the high resolution camera recording (for proxy workflow application). Clips are recorded with industry standard wrappers such as Quicktime MOV, MP4 and AVC HD for simple and instant use in day-to-day workflows such as NLE/production and web sharing.

FS-H50 clips can be transferred to video sharing web sites or mobile devices simply by inserting the SDHC media card into a computer or through the FS-H50 web interface using the optional VITEC Wi-Fi adapter. The web interface allows users to preview the live video, access/upload recorded clips and remotely operate the Focus FS-H50 Proxy recorder.

The portable Focus FS-H50 can be attached to many professional video cameras and legacy video sources. It is incredibly light and provides up to 9 hours of continuous recording on a single charge.
