College Athletic Programs Select FireStore Technology

FOCUS Enhancements streamlines video production and analysis (August 04, 2004)

FOCUS Enhancements Inc., a worldwide leader in video production and conversion technology, today announced that some of the nation's largest athletic programs have selected FireStore FS-3 or DR-DV5000 Camera-Mount Direct To Edit (DTE) disk recorders for video production and analysis tasks. Florida State University, Clemson University and The University of Tulsa are among the group of athletic programs to choose FireStore as their preferred tapeless technology based on its compatibility with a large number of editing and analysis packages, as well as its ability to eliminate the time-consuming capture process.

"DTE Technology allows athletic video coordinators to start editing minutes after shooting is complete. The coaching staffs can then quickly analyze plays to the benefit of the athletes," said Joe Walsh, National Sports Sales Manager for FOCUS Enhancements. "We are pleased that college football's biggest names are choosing FOCUS Enhancements FireStore FS-3 and DR-DV5000 with DTE Technology."

"With FireStore FS-3 we can quickly and easily edit our football highlights packages in a fraction of the time it used to take us," said Mark Rodin, program manager for Florida State Universities' Seminole Productions. "The time saved has allowed us to spend more time creating and editing a better highlights package."

DTE Technology is FOCUS Enhancements' unique proprietary recording process that enables the recording of video, audio, and time code directly to removable, FireWire disk drives in non-linear editing (NLE) native file formats. This eliminates the need to capture, transfer, or convert clips prior to editing. Formats include DV-OMF for Avid Xpress DV, QuickTime for Apple Final Cut, AVI 2 for Adobe Premiere, Pinnacle AVI, Canopus AVI, Matrox AVI, and many others.
