Fast Forward Video To Show Mini DVR Pro at IBC

Also showing DigiDeck, Recon, and OMEGA Deck (July 09, 2004)

Fast Forward Video announces that they will be showing for the first time at IBC their new Ultra-Compact Mini DVR Pro. Launched just recently at Infocomm, the company's Mini DVR Pro is a standalone, handheld, pocket-sized digital video recorder with exceptional image quality, featuring scalable, Motion JPEG (MJPEG) compression and an outstanding 720 x 486 pixel image resolution. The Mini DVR Pro is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, slip into a pocket, or hang on a belt, and measures 5.7 inches by 1.0 inches by 4.20 inches. Users can choose between an ATAPI/IDE hard drive or a solid-state flash drive, or a model that records to compact flash. The Mini DVR Pro is equipped for downloadable files via an on-board USB 2.0 port and provides removable AA batteries or low-voltage DC power input combined with low power drain for full portability.

Also for the first time at IBC: DigiDeck digital video recorder
Making its European debut is FFV's DigiDeck digital video recorder. Based on the award-winning technology of the company's Recon DVR, the DigiDeck records to IDE hard drives and is available with composite and Y/C input/output, two channels of unbalanced audio, timecode I/O, genlock, and RS-422. It can record up to nine hours on a single drive. Options include RGB/component out and Windows control software. The DigiDeck DVR can be ordered as a single- or dual-channel system.

Established Products at IBC2004

The company's Recon is an ultra-compact digital video recorder board aimed at digital motion image recording applications in broadcast, surveillance, and industrial markets, among others. Based on the same broadcast-quality feature set as the company's award-winning OMEGA Deck, Recon boasts high-quality MJPEG image resolution along with a small size of only 2.8 inches by 3.9 inches (76 mm by 100 mm). Recon's small size, low DC power consumption, and ability to record hours of video and audio on fixed or removable IDE hard drives and solid-state memory make it perfect as a field-portable, on-body, or in-vehicle recorder. Recon can also be easily integrated by OEMs into new or existing equipment as an on-board digital video recorder.

Recon users also now have the ability to view and store Recon-generated video clips on standard computer systems. Video clips generated by Recon can be viewed on a PC and archived locally or on a networked server. This new backend functionality provides users with the opportunity to store and manipulate recorded material on a computer by retrieving data directly from the Recon hard drive. Applications range from broadcast to surveillance to industrial applications in which video data needs to be digitally retrieved, viewed, and stored.

FFV's OMEGA Deck is the company's high-performance, industry-standard broadcast DVR. The OMEGA Deck delivers all of the advantages of digital video and non-linear random access with the same ease of use as today's analog tape decks. The OMEGA is used by all the major broadcasters and cable networks around the world. The deck's new chase lock feature allows synchronized playback from multiple OMEGA Decks.

Fast Forward Video will be at Stand #11.751 at IBC2004.
