The Panasonic FireStore FS-100 by Focus Enhancements is a direct-to-edit digital video recorder designed specifically for the Panasonic AG-HVX200 P2 camcorder. The FS-100 is armed with a 100 GB hard drive which can record up to 100 minutes of DVCPRO HD 1080p footage. The short run times associated with P2 cards are a thing of the past!

The device records all DVCPRO50/HD footage to Panasonic's standard MXF file and can be hooked up directly into your non linear editing system via FireWire. The benefit of direct-to-edit recording is limitless. After recording your footage, simply hook the drive to your computer and you are ready to start cutting. This type of acquisition can be very helpful for news gathering, where broadcast ready footage is time critical.

AG-HVX200 Compatible
This device is the perfect compliment to Panasonic's P2 HD camera, the AG-HVX200. The FS-100 can record all DVCPRO HD formats along with both standard definition formats, DVCPRO 50 and DV. 1
High Capacity
The 100 GB hard drive at the core of the FS-100 can be used for extended record times. This is perfect for event videography and documentary film making. The FireStore can record 1.5 hours of high definition footage! If more time is needed, simply link two or more together.
Robust Design
The FS-100 is designed to withstand wear and tear during field recording. The robust power system is reinforced with a ten second buffer to ensure data is recorded without a hitch. No matter where your project takes you, rest easy knowing the FireStore will be ready to take on whatever the environment throws its way.
No More Capturing
The FS-100 mounts directly to your digital video camera, allowing you to transfer your video directly to its hard drive. After shooting, connect the FS-100 to your computer and you are ready to edit.
DTE Technology
Direct To Edit (DTE) Technology lets you record from your camcorder to the FS-100 hard drive while you shoot. The FireStore FS-100 works with several DV NLE systems for convenience.
