Ready to Save Shooting Time? Plug into CitiDISK HDV
Time is money. And since you can't re-capture time, the CitiDISK HDV is a highly effective tool, eliminating the time consuming process of re-capturing HDV/DV footage from HDV/DV camcorder tapes into non-linear editing (NLE) systems.

CitiDISK HDV is powerful, lightweight, portable and, with its internal rechargeable battery, it connects directly to HDV/DV camcorders and captures HDV/DV footage to its miniature high-capacity hard drive and to tape simultaneously - directly from the camera's FireWire port into your choice of file-formats (.M2T, .MOV, .AVI, .DV and others). When done shooting, set your camcorder to VCR mode to "QPLAY" the last scenes on the viewfinder or simply plug it into your computer's FireWire port and edit/play directly on the digitized video at anytime.

Optimized For Video Professionals

With its small form-factor, high-capacity and rugged design, CitiDISK HDV is ideally suited for broadcast and video professionals in the field. Typical applications include event video, cooperate video, wedding, ceremony and etc.

Camera-Controlled HDV/DV/DV50 Recording With Or Without Tape
Records HDV/DV/DV50 streams from camcorder controlled by camera's REC button with tape, or by CitiDISK HDV's REC button without tape. Since HDV cameras are more widespread today and continue growing in popularity, CitiDISK HDV stores the MPEG2 transport stream as a M2T file, as well as DV (DV25) and DVCPro50 (DV50) into the unit for immediate editing capability.

Choose Video File Format At Anytime Per NLE's Native File Format
Stores video clips as one of DV, AVI, MOV or M2T formats in a pre-formatted FAT32 hard drive. HDV streams are always stored in M2T format even it set otherwise.

Quick Play Last Captured Scene and Play All Captured Scences(NEW)
"QPLAY" last captured HDV/DV/DV50 streams on viewfinder when setting camera to VCR mode.
Navigating history clips is also possible by "Press-n-Hold" "QPLAY" button for over three seconds.

Archive HDV/DV/DV50 Tape Content
Archives HDV/DV/DV50 taped streams by pressing CitiDISK HDV's REC button with camera in VCR mode.
Video clips are stored as one of DV, AVI, MOV or M2T formats in a pre-formatted FAT32 hard drive.

Multiple HDV/DV/DV50 Formats And Audio Sampling Rate Detection
CitiDISK HDV automatically detects incoming MiniDV/DVCam/DVCPro (DV or DV25), DVCPro50 or HDV stream formats and 2-ch-16bit-48Khz/2-ch-16bit-44.1Khz/4-ch-12bit-32khz audio sampling rates, and provides record/playback in either format.

Pre-Scene Loop Recording (FW1256C And FW1256H Only)
HDV/DV/DV50 streams are buffered in internal memory and instantly recorded to the unit's hard drive when the REC button is pressed or REC command is selected. This function helps to avoid the loss of important scenes.

Non-Stop Shooting Through Combination Of Batteries
CitiDISK HDV embeds a 90-minute rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery that automatically kicks in when 3-hour external battery power runs low. This seamless battery power changeover ensures non-stop shooting capability without needing to shut down the unit.
