This industry proven workhorse features multiple video input and output formats including composite, S-Video, component YUV and RGB as well as purely digital formats like SDI plus Firewire (IEEE1394) and a hot swappable hard disk capable of recording more than 24 hours of high quality video. Larger capacity systems are also available. Additionally, the FS1000 also supports real-time editing and the creation of still and animated titles using the DD Title? package. It can also function as a replay server for retransmission of satellite feeds with less then one minute delay.

The VS2000 renders these virtual 3D worlds with professional quality tools incorporating mesh objects, a variety of texture materials, virtual lights, cameras and animation tracks. Fully interactive and extremely easy to use, the VS2000 requires only a single operator, using either a keyboard, mouse or joystick for control of the virtual set, thus eliminating the need for multiple high-end video engineers.
The MPEGator4 is the most advanced MPEG4 encoder available today. With features like full D1 and frame rate MPEGator4 encoder is opening new power encoding solutions for Video CD production, video conferencing, digital security systems, and multimedia content creation. The MPEGator 4 has the same software development kit (SDK) format as its predecessor, the award winning MPEGator 1 so customers can easily migrate their existing legacy MPEGator 1 systems to encode MPEG 4 content without any modification to their applications.
