Simplified Workflow:  Recording direct-to-disk provides end users with a better workflow.  There is not need to ingest your footage from tape at real time, simply drag and drop your footage across your network at up to 3x real time through FireWire, USBII, or Gigibit Ethernet and start editing.

Offloading Footage On-set:  Even while on set, offload footage through Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire, or USBII.  Because you are simply transferring bits of data electronically, you team will always work with identical copies of your digital master.
