The V-Station HD Studio4 Production DVR from FutureVideo is used for projects where you need to do either independent 4-channel recording with separate logging for each video channel, or for synchronized recording with live-switching and live multi-streaming (up to 5 streams). With 5 full video track recording, it can create the live mix track and still have the 4 channels of the original recordings to re-edit later with your NLE. It can simultaneously record 4 HD cameras in full HD 1080p60 resolution (at up to 30 Mbps per channel) with a total of 320 hours of recording time.
Built-in B-Roll Media Player
The recorder has its own B-Roll media player for playing back graphics or videos you can record on the DVR in a live shoot or use for presentation or cue card to a studio monitor.
Log Events as They Happen or Afterwards
Enter markers and notes for each angle as an event occurs and find the exact frame upon playback with the built-in media player.
Multi-Stream and Stream Live Cut to Facebook Live and YouTube Live
Built-in multi-streaming technology enables each camera feed being recorded to be streamed. Destinations may be different. The live cut may be streamed to YouTube Live or Facebook Live. You can also upload your project to your FTP site or to YouTube immediately after the shoot with Studio4's built-in uploader.
Flexible User Interface
You can use either a 10" or 24" touchscreen (both optional) and/or standard PC monitor with the recorder. You can even use one, two, or three monitors to easily see all your controls and videos.
The recorder supports a dual set of 1TB HDDs for redundant recording and safely ensures there is a backup of your sessions in case one drive should fail.
Multi-View Player/Rough-Cut Editor
With the optional V-Station HD Studio Companion software (sold separately), you can playback all videos in synchronized mode without re-encoding or transferring to an NLE system. Re-create the shoot, and cut as you play, creating as many different rough cuts.
Field-Upgradable to 8-Camera Recording
As your needs evolve, FVS403 can be field-upgraded from 4-channel/5-track to 8-channel/9-track recording.
