  • Bi-directional video conversion between HD/SD-SDI and MPEG-2 TS/ HDV/ DV
  • Portable and Lightweight with High Performance
  • HDMI Output for convenient monitoring
  • External/Internal Battery Support
  • Unprecedented convenience and flexibility

HDMI Output allows fexible and convenient monitoring
The dedicated HDMI Output port provides display and monitoring of both the video and audio* signal. The output can also be used to directly connect to a large display or video projector.
*Audio signal is only available when the source is HD/SD-SDI.


Setup and Control via PC and/or dipswitches
The VC-50HD can be controlled using dedicated PC utility software via USB. This allows setting up direction, codec type, SDI audio channels, etc. Presets can be saved to enable quick and convenient selection via dipswitch settings.


Three different types of power


The VC-50HD supports three different types of power supply: AC power adaptor, AA batteries, and external battery support. The built-in 8AA battery tray can supply seamless failover power should the AC power become disconnected or while changing over external battery packs. Additionally the VC-50HD can accept V-Mount and Gold Mount external batteries systems.


Open up a new world of application opportunities

Capture directly to HDD/SDD using the EDIROL F-1 Video Field Recorder
Combining the VC-50HD with the EDIROL F-1 Video Field Recorder (Version 2.0) enables direct recording at any supported bitrate (up to 50Mbps) to hard-drive or solid state memory. MPEG-2TS 50Mbps enables higher quality video capture than HDV. Alternatively MPEG-2 TS 8Mbps enables around 27 hours of HD video recording when used with the 120GB HDD.


HD-SDI and HDV Bi-directional Video Copy
Bi-directionally convert between high quality, uncompressed HD-SDI and affordable HD format HDV devices. This is an efficient and flexible system for transfer, production and transcoding applications.


Capture directly and edit using your non-linear editing system
Most non-linear video editing systems support HDV as well as 35/50Mbps MPEG-2 TS data files. Enable higher level quality video production with low overhead.


Easy capture or archiving to Blu-ray
Blu-ray/ DVD recorders equipped with IEEE1394 (i.LINK) can record high quality video directly from HD/SD-SDI sources via the VC-50HD. This is ideal for high quality video backup and archiving.
