Datavideo presents the HDR-80 and HDR-90 ProRes 4K Recorder
Datavideo has introduced the first series of 4K ProRes recorders. The HDR-80 and HDR-90 are identical recorders in two different form factors
The HDR-80 (Desktop) / 90 (Rackmount) 4K recorders use a 10-bit ProRes 422 compressed codec for recording UHD 4K videos. Apple ProRes, a codec technology developed for high-quality, high-performance editing in Final Cut Pro X, is one of the most popular codecs in professional post-production. The HDR-80/90 recorders are equipped with one HDMI 2.0 input, one HDMI 1.4 input, one 12G-SDI input, and four 3G-SDI inputs. The three input modes available at these input ports allow operators to simultaneously record up to 4 HD video channels to ProRes files.
The built-in 5-inch touch screen equipped with HDR-80/90 recorders allows users to view and record the video at the same time. The screen is not only able to clearly show the video being recorded, it is also a touch screen that makes UI “easy and intuitive”. The recorder’s zebra pattern, histogram, and vectorscope will assist operators in determining the proper exposure for the record videos.
Behind the touch screen, there are two 2.5” SSD slots. When one disk is full while the recording is still in progress, the recorder will automatically switch to another disk to continue, thereby avoiding interruption of video recording.
