Maxell Introduces iVDR VC102Innovative Adapter allows simultaneous non-linear recording from a wide variety of digital video cameras onto rugged iVDR drives.
Maxell's first-generation iVDR was successful with the Panasonic P2 cameras. The new iVDR VC102 utilizing CitiDISK technology allowing for vastly expanded support of professional video cameras. The iVDR VC102 allows any camera that utilizes the DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO100, DVCPRO HD or HDV formats to record simultaneously to an iVDR drive.
Footage can later be off-loaded directly into an assortment of editing programs, such as Final Cut Pro, Edius or Adobe Premiere. The task of capturing files before editing them is eliminated. The VC102 also reduces the overall amount of hardware used and time required for processing.
The VC102 ships with two, 6-pin-to-4-pin IEEE 1394A (FireWire) and one, 6-pin-to-6-pin IEEE 1394A cable and is compatible with both professional and consumer cameras that utilize either interface. UA rechargeable, internal, Lithium battery powers the iVDR VC102 which can operate for up to 90 minutes* of nonstop recording* (DC power is available as an option).
The utilization of CitiDISK technology in the iVDR VC102 continues to expand the capabilities and applications of the iVDR Technology. These include rugged and harsh environments such as mobile videography, military field applications, mobile medical or forensics and mobile law enforcement applications.
