The FS-H200 Pro Portable Compact Flash DTE Recorder brings ultra-reliable solid state acquisition with Direct to Edit Technology to your DV or HDV camcorder. The FS-H200 Pro allows you to view thumbnails and playback proxy content, create and share MPEG4 proxy clips, assign clips to folders with custom names during recording using the REELS functionality, and much more. FS-H200 Pro utilizes standard Type 1 removable Compact Flash media which provides fast, reliable, and low-cost recording.

Solid State Acquisition to Editing in One Step
The Focus FS-H200 Pro introduces a new element to DTE Recording. With the FS-H200 Pro you can record directly to a removable and inexpensive Compact Flash (CF) memory card (sold separately). Connect the FS-H200 Pro directly to your DV or HDV camcorder using a single FireWire cable, allowing you to record to CF card only or to CF card and tape simultaneously.

By recording to solid state Compact Flash cards, the Focus FS-H200 Pro can be used in extreme conditions including high-shock and altitude environments. With the FS-H200 Pro, once a recording is completed the Compact Flash card can be removed from the unit and inserted into a memory card adapter for quick computer access or remain in the FS-H200 Pro and mount to computer via USB. DTE Technology ensures that your footage is ready to edit instantly - no capturing, file transfer, or file conversion is required.

View Thumbnails and Video Clips
With the FS-H200 Pro, you can view thumbnails and video clips on its brilliant color display. Thumbnails can also be viewed on a web page when the FS-H200 Pro is connected to a network. MPEG-4 proxy files can be generated and transferred to a host computer or a video-sharing web site, as well as distributed to portable media devices, making collaboration easy.

Assign Custom Metadata on the Fly
With the FS-H200 Pro, you can personalize and optimize workflow - while you shoot. With your wireless handheld device or laptop, you can access the FS-H200 Pro through a browser, define metadata, and assign it to video while you are recording, eliminating the need to tag footage when the shoot is over. During post-production, simply transfer clips - complete with metadata - from the FS-H200 Pro to your NLE system or PX Media Server. All of the information that you assigned during the shoot goes with the clips, saving you hours or even days of logging time.

Engineered for Portability, Durability, and Ease of Use
Only 2.75" wide, 5.4" high, and 1.25" deep, the FS-H200 Pro packs a wealth of functionality into a sleek and durable package that weighs only 12 ounces. Crafted from the inside out to meet the reliability and quality standards that video professionals demand, the FS-H200 Pro is designed to deliver great results under even the most challenging shooting conditions.

Industry Standard File Format Support
The Focus FS-H200 Pro brings the most popular DTE file formats to solid state recording. When used with 25Mb/s HDV cameras. The FS-H200 Pro supports QuickTime 1080i50/60 and 720p25/30 recording for Final Cut Pro use, MXF HDV support for Avid, and M2T 720p/1080i recording for use in a number of different applications from Adobe, Avid and Grass Valley (Canopus).

Removable Compact Flash Slot
The FS-H200 Pro features a CF card slot on its side for insertion of standard Type 1, UDMA, 266x minimum Compact Flash Cards (16GB min.). Compact Flash cards feature a fast interface and very high capacities (currently up to 32GB) at low cost. The FS-H200 Pro also features a captive protective cover for the CF card slot to protect and secure your media. Buy as many CF cards as required.

Designed to Transform Workflow at the Recording Stage
Not only does the FS-H200 Pro enable you to go straight from shooting to editing by recording video in the NLE-compatible file format of your choice, but it allows you to add custom metadata to footage while you are recording. With three simple steps, you can define metadata fields for your shoot, add metadata tags to footage while it is recording, and transfer edit-ready clips to your NLE system or PX Media Server, complete with camera generated and custom-defined metadata. This simple three-step process dramatically streamlines workflow and saves numerous hours typically spent reviewing, logging, and tagging footage after it is shot.

Native QuickTime HDV and MXF HDV Support
With the FS-H200 Pro, you can record 1080i 50/60 or 720p 30 clips as native QuickTime HDV. The FS-H200 Pro extracts and decodes the audio from the incoming HDV stream, combines it with video stream, and wraps it as a QuickTime HDV file. When recording is complete, your QuickTime HDV file can be imported directly into Final Cut Pro - no capture or conversion is required.

Designed to Transform Workflow with Industry Standard Removable Media
FS-H200 Pro allows you to go straight from shooting to editing by recording video in the NLE-compatible file format of your choice. Enhancing workflow one step further, once a recording is complete, the FS-H200 Pro allows you to remove the Compact Flash memory and mount it to your computer using a standard CF compatible memory card reader. By doing this, you are free to insert another CF card into your FS-H200 Pro and continue shooting while your previous card is being used for editing or archive ingest. If a CF compatible memory card reader is not available, simply leave the CF card in the FS-H200 Pro and mount the unit to a computer via USB 2.0 using the available HDD mode.
