The Vitec Multimedia Focus FS-T2001 Portable Field Deck is an SDI recorder featuring Sony's full range of professional recording formats and two SxS card slots for native compatibility with Sony's workflow and media. A 250GB HDD is additionally integrated for direct storage. The recorder is designed for both ENG and EFP applications and can export out to both Macs and PCs.

The design and GUI are simple and intuitive: standard-type transport controls and a thumbnail clip menu for playback selection. You can play clips on the integrated 2.4" LCD or export them to an external monitor. You can also monitor live on the LCD. Transferring clips is simple too -- either copy them between SxS cards or onto the HDD, transfer them to a computer via an included USB cable, or share them over an FTP/CIFS network.

The top resolution supported is 1080i60/50. The SDI input features 4 channels of embedded audio and embedded timecode. The rest of the connections consist of SDI, HDMI, Composite BNC, and RCA audio outputs, two USB ports that can be used in host or device mode, and a 1Gbps RJ45 port for network connection.
