Datavideo DN-200 overview

  • 1Description

The Datavideo DN-200 DV/HDV Hard Disk Recorder is an easy-to-carry, analog/digital recorder that weighs just 21.2 oz (600g) and has a 320 GB SATA hard drive for long duration recording. Capable of easily storing anywhere from 19 to 23 hours of A/V footage (depending on the format used), the recorder accepts both analogue and digital inputs, and records them in popular A/V formats. DV recordings can be stored in AVI, MOV, and MXF OP1A formats, while HDV files are stored in the M2T format. You can even use a quick utility program to record HDV files as QuickTime or MXF OP1A movies.

While recording, you can use the time-lapse feature to capture single frames at pre-defined intervals and also manually activate the single frame feature for claymation or model animation recordings, with the backlit LCD displaying the recording status and setup. The DN-200 includes a pre-record buffer that captures video starting at 8-seconds before you hit the record button, and can be very useful in capturing sudden or unexpected situations in applications such as research monitoring or location security. Allowing you to set a record date, the recorder can also read the digital time code from an incoming DV signal. The RS-232 and GPI control interface allow you to easily synchronize the time codes from multiple recorders besides ensuring simple update, trigger, and control.

With its portability, ease of connectivity, and large capacity HDD, the DN-200 DV/HDV hard disk recorder can be used in a wide variety of environments such as security, entertainment, TV broadcast, medical research, and education.
