Live event producers get synchronized, frame-accurate, multi-channel capture to NLE friendly H.264, MOV and AVI files at a breakthrough price
Matrox® Video today announced immediate availability of VS4Recorder Pro™, a multi-camera recording and multiviewer app for use with Matrox VS4™ quad HD capture cards. Each VS4-based recording system captures up to four video and audio inputs to create files for use with popular editing apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for archiving. H.264 is provided in either MOV or MP4 wrappers. AVI files can be created using the high-quality Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec. MOV QuickTime files can be created using DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD. VS4Recoder also functions as a multiviewer, offering pristine video quality even when monitoring interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors.
“Synchronized, frame-accurate, multi-channel HD capture is simpler and more affordable than ever before,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager, Matrox Video. “With VS4 Recorder Pro, live event producers and video editors get the quality, versatility and intuitive control they want, at a fraction of the usual cost. Complete systems can be assembled for as little as $3500 and as much storage as needed can easily be added.”
Additional features of VS4Recorder Pro include automatic input detection for quick on-site set up; event markers for Adobe Premiere CC so that while recording, users can highlight moments of interest for quicker post-event editing; settings for capture duration and file switching without frame loss; VS4Control for gang recording of an unlimted number of video sources simply by networking multiple VS4-enabled machines together in a master-slave configuration; and DirectShow filters for developers to incorporate VS4 functionality in their own applications. VS4-based systems are also ideal for multi-camera live production streaming with Telestream® Wirecast® for Windows® or StudioCoast vMix software.
VS4Recorder Pro will be demonstrated on stand 7.B29 at IBC2014 (Amsterdam, Sept. 12-16).
