With MovieRecorder, Softron Media Services offers its customers a cost effective way to capture video for collaborative editing. No media transcoding, re-linking or re-rendering is required. The post sessions are much more manageable with pre-editing starting at ingest and content fully online and easily searchable. With Edit while Ingest it is possible to start editing in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro or most other editing solution seconds after the ingest has started.
MovieRecorder provides Apple Macintosh users with powerful and cost effective ingest capabilities as well as multi-station ingest control.
With MovieRecorder you can record up to 8 streams of HD video on one single Mac. And the limit is only the CPU (and the storage of course). When new Macs are released, it will add more possibilities. If you need more than 8 then you can have multiple computers but control all ingest from one workstation. Doing a multi cam ingest is very easy with the gang record.
The M|80 is the first hardware and software bundle that we provide. It includes eight licenses of MovieRecorder, one SDI Video card from Deltacast with 8 inputs, one Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis, and one Black Thunderbolt cable.
You will just need to connect it in Thunderbolt and the dongle to your new Mac Pro and you are good to go. If you have an "old" Mac Pro with no thunderbolt ports, but plenty of PCI slots, well, you can just take the PCI card out of the box and use it in your Mac Pro. If you record in SD and not HD, then an iMac or MacBook Pro might fit your needs!
The simplest way of recording to disc is called crash recording. No need to be a specialist to get it to work. Simply push the record button in the user interface and your recording will start right away. To automate recordings so making unattended scheduled recordings is also possible.
The ability to schedule recordings is a must for any recording device and will greatly improve your productivity. With MovieRecorder scheduled recording is as easy as programming your VCR, because it is integrated into the program. You can schedule recordings to automatically start at a specified date and time.
Users very often need their media to be “edit-ready” even while the event that is being recorded continues. MovieRecorder enables Edit while Ingest on multiple destinations (for redundancy), and even using multiple codecs that is created at the same time of recording... MovieRecorder allows users to either schedule recordings for later use or edits, to record them interactively and to edit clips while they are being captured, for example using Apple’s Final Cut Pro or Adobe's Premiere Pro. When used in conjunction with a video I/O device such as those from AJA, Blackmagic Design or Deltacast, MovieRecorder can capture in advanced codecs.
With MovieRecorder, you can create as many preset destination as you want to, and use them simultaneously or not. You can create QuickTime, MXF or HLS types of destinations. Once created, you just need to enable or disable them for each source. It has never been that easy to configure multiple recorders and use different settings.
MovieRecorder comes with Audio/Video presets, so you can get going very quick. Most users will be satisfied with the Recommended Presets but in case you want to fine tune your settings, you can just build your own in the Custom Presets.
