Fast Forward Video Launches Micron HD Digital Video Recorder
Posted Dec 15, 2009

Fast Forward Video (FFV) today announced the release of its new Micron HD digital video recorder (DVR), a highly cost-effective yet powerful solution for recording and playout of broadcast-quality digital SD and HD video.

The Micron HD offers many of the features of FFV's industry-leading Omega HD DVR, in a single rack unit and at a price point specifically targeted to today's most budget-conscious broadcast-grade operations.

"The Micron HD is a direct response to many of our customers who requested an inexpensive, entry-level HD DVR that could still measure up to the superb picture quality of the Omega HD," said Harry Glass, vice president of sales for FFV. "The single-channel Micron HD is an ideal solution for broadcasters seeking to migrate to HD operations at a low cost per channel while maintaining SD capabilities."

It records using the high-quality JPEG2000 compression at speeds up to 100 Mbit/sec, making it an excellent replacement for SD-only DVRs and analog tape decks. The Micron HD offers up to five hours of record time, and its removable, non-proprietary 2.5-inch SATA drive is fully compatible with FFV's Elite HD camera-mounted DVR. Users can record, play, and store multiple SD and HD video files. With a simple machine controller, the user can access a larger set of functions and command multiple units with one key stroke. The suggested retail price is $4,995.
