New Mac Pro Video Playback/Record Systems

December 18, 2010

Just in, our new Mac Pro Video Playback/Record Systems, for file based (no tape/dvd) playback/record. For our clients, life just got easier.

File based playback and record offers complete flexibility for both the client, and the audio visual crew. With our new Mac Pro Video Playback/Record Sytems, there is no longer a need to lug around tapes or CD's.

Need a file played during your show? Simply put the file on an external drive (like a thumb drive). From your thumb drive, our technician can import your video file, put it into the playback timeline, and que it up when its time to play. It's that simple!.

For Recording, your show will be recorded to high quality video files on the machine's hard drive. At the end of your show, the files can be transfered to a portable external hard drive, which you can then take with you. If you plan to edit your footage, or post it to the web, your video is already in a workable, file based format, allowing you to quickly import it to an editing program or further compress the video for web purposes.
