sideKick HD (New)
Making its international debut at the 2012 NAB Show, FFV’s new sideKick HD offers unmatched image quality in a camera-mountable recording solution. Designed to ease production workflows and satisfy the demands of both producers and postproduction editors, the sideKick HD enables customers to get the most out of their camcorders without having to compromise on quality. While the on-board recorders of most camcorders typically deliver a data stream of only 30 megabits per second, the sideKick HD is able to record at 220 megabits per second — providing significantly higher image quality for the “camera original.” As a true straight-to-edit DVR, the sideKick HD records to off-the-shelf, removable 2.5-inch SSD drives in native ProRes (for Apple Final Cut Pro) or DNxHD (Avid) NLE formats. Bringing files into the NLE environment is a simple matter of moving the disk from the SideKick to the computer; no time-consuming ingest or transcoding operations are required.
sideKick HD Studio (New)
FFV’s sideKick HD Studio is a new, rackmountable version of FFV’s powerful sideKick camera-mounted DVR for use in base stations and studio locations. Occupying only a half RU in width and 2RU in height, sideKick HD Studio is directly compatible with the camera-mounted sideKick HD, giving users the ability to transfer field footage stored on the unit’s 2.5-inch SSD directly into the sideKick HD Studio for easy integration with NLE systems and other content sources for fast and seamless editing and playback to air. With industry-standard RS422 control, operators can connect the sideKick HD Studio with a standard machine controller to enable extended functionality such as cueing, slow-motion play speed control, and reverse play. The unit includes standard analog and AES I/O as well as a gigabit Ethernet port for easy uploading and downloading of content.
2012 NAB Show Floor Show Special
Purchase the sideKick HD for $2,195 at FFV’s booth (C6313) and the company will include a 128 GB drive at no additional cost. This offer is valid only during NAB Show hours.
