FOCUS Enhancements Now Shipping FireStore FS-4 Pro
Posted Apr 8, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1
  

FOCUS Enhancements Inc. has announced the availability of its groundbreaking FireStore FS-4Pro Portable Direct To Edit(tm) (DTE) Recorders. The palm-sized FS-4Pro joins the recently announced FS-4 in FOCUS' line of portable DTE recorder for handheld digital camcorders. The FireStore family will be on display at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas from April 18th to 21st (Booth SL505, SL4255E).

Designed for digital videographers in the broadcast, sports, wedding and event, and education industries, the FS-4Pro features a 40GB (3 hour) or 80GB (6 hour) internal disk drive, FOCUS Enhancements' DTE technology, and a field-ready, rugged enclosure. As compared to FOCUS Enhancements' FS-4 model, the FS-4Pro increases editing compatibility by adding Avid OMF and Pinnacle AVI support in addition to standard DTE Technology file formats. FS-4Pro also adds multiple retro-record modes, reels that allow clips to be categorized into pre-named folders on disk while shooting, and user definable time lapse and loop playback modes.

In March 2005, FOCUS Enhancements announced plans to support the High Definition (HD) standard with its new FS-4 HD and FS-4Pro HD models. The company is offering a special to customers purchasing the new FS-4 and FS-4Pro models by April 30, 2005, enabling them to upgrade to full HD functionality for only $99 (normally $299).

The FireStore FS-4Pro portable DTE recorders weigh less than one pound including the battery, and are only 1.5-inches thick. The low profile design allows videographers to mount the FS-4Pro to their camcorder using the optional hot-shoe clip-on adapter or attach it directly to their belt. FS-4Pro features a 6-pin FireWire connector for interface with camcorders, a 6-pin FireWire connector for interfacing with a computer for editing or file transfer, a backlit status LCD display and a comprehensive set of control buttons including a navigation pad. It supports RawDV, AVI Type 1, AVI Type 2, Matrox AVI, Canopus AVI, QuickTime, 24p QuickTime and 24p AVI Type 2. The FS-4Pro also includes up to ten seconds of retro-cache, retro disk, loop record, user definable folders for scene marking, and support for additional DV25 DTE technology file formats including Avid DV-OMF and Pinnacle AVI.

FireStore FS-4Pro 40GB and 80GB are available through the worldwide FOCUS Enhancements and Canon USA dealer and distributor networks for a US MSRP of $1,195 and $1,595, respectively. FireStore HD upgrades, FS-4 HD, and FS-4Pro HD are expected to be available in the Summer of 2005 through the worldwide FOCUS Enhancements dealer and distributor network.
