Established FFV Products at NAB 2005:

Omega Deck Digital Video Recorders
FFVs OMEGA Deck is a high-performance, low-cost DVR that delivers all of the advantages of digital video and non-linear random access that have made it the de facto replacement for analog tape decks. The decks new chase lock feature allows synchronized playback from multiple OMEGA decks.

DigiDeck Digital Video Recorders
Part of the DigiDeck digital video recorder family, DigiDeck PC maintains analog composite and Y/C outputs, with optional RGB/component outputs, while allowing users to record video as QuickTime files and view those files simply by connecting the DigiDecks removable drives to a PC.

Recon Board-Level DVR
Fast Forward Videos Recon is an ultra-compact digital video recorder board aimed at digital motion-image recording applications in broadcast, surveillance, and industrial markets, among others.
