FFV, a provider of digital video recorder (DVR) technology for broadcast, industrial video, presentation, and military applications, will launch its new NDT 200 portable DVR at NAB2006 in Las Vegas, April 24-27. The NDT 200 is a portable, handheld digital video recorder that features a standard removable 2.5-inch hard-disk drive and a large display panel and touchpad for ease of operation.
The NDT 200 has been designed as a drop-in replacement for tape-based recording devices, and it easily fits into the same area as a video walkman. The 2.5-inch removable hard drive provides a standard, convenient recording medium while saving space in remote applications. Intended for a wide variety of applications, the NDT 200 is engineered for high-quality video recording in remote locations and specifically designed to meet the unique needs of freelance producers, outside broadcasters, video-assist operators, surveillance and security organizations, video analysts, emergency "first-response" teams, law enforcement, government, and military agencies.
The touch-pad user interface and push-button controls make this DVR intuitive and uncomplicated to operate. All functions can be controlled via the touch pad, soft buttons, and LCD panel on top of the unit or from an external PC or VTR controller. Video clips can be recorded in QuickTime. format for playback on a PC or Mac or as FFV secure video files. They then can be downloaded to PC or Mac systems via the onboard USB 2.0 port or through the removal of the hard drive and the insertion of the drive into a suitably equipped PC or Mac.
The NDT 200's standard features include selectable compression ratios (from 4:1 to 30:1), dual-channel audio, time-dated stamp and character displays, time-lapse recording, loop and pre-event recording, and build and edit clip lists. External control is available through optional machine control software, and the recorder may be powered through an external low-DC-voltage input or by replaceable/rechargeable internal batteries.
