Vydeo Announces Day 1 2ST Orders Top ExpectationsPortable, bidirectional SDI to DV over 1394 converter (March 09, 2005)
Vydeo Integrated Systems, Inc., announced today that first day sales of the Company's flagship 2ST converter far exceeded expectations and forecasts.
The 2ST is a portable, bidirectional SDI to DV over 1394 converter featuring VITC, DVITC, RS-422 machine control, Decode/Encode switching and field power functions.
"What a way to start, to kick off a new product! We are thrilled at the successful launch of our 2ST converter and by our key customer's acceptance of the product," noted Matt Schultz, Vydeo's President, "To have Day 1 sales crash through a barrier we could never have imagined - and bust it significantly - is a solid and undeniable testimony, I think, to our engineering team's remarkable design job."
"Either that," Mr. Schultz quipped, "Or we need to find better methods of forecasting."
The 2ST converter will be re-packaged in brand-name specific custom enclosures by key Vydeo OEM and Distribution major accounts on a worldwide basis. 2ST can be seen and tested at NAB 2005.
"The 2ST is the only converter of it's kind in the industry," continued Matt Schultz, "Cameramen know that virtually every other format converter available is only as good as the length of your extension cord. Cameramen can't be bound to a desk, no news ever was shot sitting in your own office. 2ST frees you, puts you out in the field, transcoding and laying back to Betacam, and moving Betacam SDI into the digital NLE world."
The 2ST is the perfect traveling companion for the professional cameraman seeking a high quality, low cost methodology for transcoding. Keep footage in the digital domain instead of "mixing" Betacam and/or BetacamSX with signals through a composite cable.
2ST's unique power features enable the converter to be powered by a digital battery pack via XLR input, across the 1394 bus over a 6-pin port, or using a standard DC power adapter.
