Defining a new class of DTE recording, the FS-5 Portable DTE Recorder weighs only 12 ounces, brings Direct To Edit® recording technology to your HDV or DV handheld camcorder, and enables you to add custom metadata while you’re recording. Focus FS-5 Portable DTE Recorder Go from Acquisition to Editing in One Step.
Featuring a backlit color display, an easy-to-use menu system, a hard drive, and a removable, rechargeable battery, the Focus FS-5 is the perfect DTE companion for your HDV or DV camcorder. Audio, video, timecode, and control information is passed through a single FireWire cable, allowing you to record to disk or to disk and tape simultaneously.
