Introducing sideKick HD - a camera-mountable DVR that supports a ProRes straight to edit workflow.
At NAB, Fast Forward Video (FFV) will debut the sideKick HD, a multiformat, straight-to-edit camera-mountable DVR. The sideKick HD captures video directly from HD/SDI or HDMI outputs at bit rates up to 220 Mbit/s, with 4:2:2 sampling and 10-bit resolution in multiple codecs starting with ProRes on removable 2.5-inch SSD drives. Recording directly to high-quality NLE formats eliminates time-consuming transcoding, which can degrade image quality. The sideKick HD also provides a 4.3-inch on-board confidence monitor, which offers playback options including scrub and jog capabilities.
Capture the full potential of your HD camcorder's high quality sensor and lens. The sideKick HD gives you some of the highest bit rates while maintaining the fastest straight to edit, multi-format workflow.
