The Matrox VS4Recorder Pro Software Upgrade allows users of the Matrox VS4 four-input HD-SDI capture card to add the same software that is included in the VS4PRO bundle. With the VS4Recorder Pro Software you can frame accurately record up to four live audio/video feeds using the VS4, either as multi-cam or treated as unrelated streams. It is ideal for recording live multi-camera productions like concerts and sporting events to create video assets that can be easily repurposed and archived with timecode synced ahead of time. In addition, VS4Recorder Pro provides a multi-viewer function allowing you to view all four inputs on a single computer monitor.
Capture NLE-Friendly Files
Capture to industry-recognized codecs for use with your NLE of choice without transcoding. The efficient Matrox MPEG-2 I-frame codec at up to 300 Mb/s is provided in an AVI wrapper, H.264 is provided in either MOV or MP4 wrappers, and DV/DVCAM, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, and DVCPRO HD QuickTime files are provided in MOV wrappers. Global audio settings include audio codecs for .wav and .aac files with bit rate, bit depth and stereo/mono options
Automatic Input Detection
Connect your video sources, start VS4Recorder Pro and begin recording - the software will automatically detect your video format. Each input is independent so you can capture HD and SD in the same recording session
Frame Accurate Recording
Record multiple angles of a single event with VS4Recorder Pro's multi-cam mode - pressing a single button causes all inputs to begin recording in sync. Once a session is underway, you can stop any input without interrupting the other inputs. When finished, import the files into an NLE - all files will be perfectly in sync on the timeline
Capture real-time content for archiving or repurposing by recording any input independently. Monitor multiple video signals to acquire a video asset at the push of a button
VS4Recorder Pro offers video monitoring of all inputs, with a special filter applied for maximum quality when viewing interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors. VS4Recorder Pro scales your incoming video signals to suit any video window size and offers single- and quad-view modes for a customizable multi-viewing experience. Use quad-view mode to preview all four inputs simultaneously or switch to single-view mode and cycle through your inputs
Split-Up the Recording
VS4Recorder Pro will automatically split your recording into separate files, switching to a new file without losing a single frame. You can begin editing the split files as soon as each one is created
Set a capture duration. VS4Recorder Pro will stop recording automatically at the end of the time specified
Customizable On-Screen Display
Configure your VS4Recorder Pro interface just the way you like it. Label and file name overlays in each quadrant can be set to remain on screen or auto-hide after a period of mouse inactivity. Each quadrant also provides controls for source recording, audio monitoring, view mode, elapsed recording time, and hard drive status in a popover area that appears/disappears on mouse activity/inactivity. VS4Recorder Pro also provides visual cues showing the amount of storage and the length of record time remaining on your target hard drive so you don't miss important content
Beyond Four Channel Recording
Use the VS4Control feature for synchronized, frame-accurate recording of an unlimited number of video sources. By networking multiple VS4 machines together in a master-slave configuration, you can capture as many channels as you want. On a single network you can have as many VS4 units as needed and group them into any number of master/slave configurations. Additionally, the master/slave groupings can be re-assigned in any way at any time
Timecode and Metadata Support
Metadata support for Adobe Premiere CC and CS6 includes original SDI timecode, the session's timecode, or the system time timecode. Additional metadata support provided by VS4Recorder Pro includes label, file names, session name, machine name, event markers, and more
Store event markers while recording for use with Adobe Premiere simply by hitting the "star" key
Navigate to any quadrant and click the speaker icon to monitor the input's selected audio pair. VS4Recorder Pro automatically directs the audio source to your computer's sound card. Mouse over any speaker icon and a channel-selection flyout appears, offering all available channels by audio pair. In addition, VU meters let you visually monitor up to eight channels of embedded audio per video input
Use your mouse or the predefined shortcut keys to control VS4Recorder Pro. Switch between quad-view, single-view and full-screen modes; cycle through your inputs; or start/stop recording an input or a multi-cam session
