HIGH QUALITY HD/SD-SDI RECORDER/PLAYER
 

High Quality HD/SD-SDI Recorder/Player

•Extremely Low-Noise Images
•Master Quality Modes are Visually Indistinguishable from Uncompresses

Flash XDR is a revolutionary new solid-state HD/SD recorder/player that uniquely utilizes the very high-quality Sony XDCAM 4:2:2 CODEC to write native Quicktime, MXF (video/audio/time-code), or MPG files onto affordable Compact Flash media. Flash XDR breaks new ground in terms of weight, power, size, ruggedness and ease of use. We are confident you will agree that the video quality is indistinguishable from uncompressed (at 100+ Mbps Long-GOP or 180+ Mbps I-Frame modes).

General Questions

Video I/O
Which video input formats are supported?
Interlaced / Progressive Formats: 1080i60/50, 1080psf30/25/24, 720p60/50, 480i/576i

Can Flash XDR auto-detect the incoming HD-SDI stream?
Yes, auto-detect is the default setting.

Are component analog and / or HDMI I/O included?
No, in designing Flash XDR we made some tradeoffs of connectivity and physical size.
We included HD-SDI with embedded audio and time-code support, but left off analog video and HDMI inputs to conserve space and power.
Analog video → HD-SDI converters are available from several manufacturers, while HDMI → HD-SDI conversion can be accomplished using our low-cost nanoConnect converter.

Does Flash XDR perform cross / down conversions?
No, Flash XDR does not perform 1080i ↔ 720p or HD ↔ SD type conversions.
Our design goals limited the power and size of the box. Also, cross / down conversion was deemed unnecessary, as most HD-SDI sources already provide this functionality.
So, the resulting MPEG2 stream always matches the HD-SDI input format (except when pull-down removal is enabled).

Can Flash XDR remove the pull-down (inverse telecine) and record in 1080p24/23.98?
This will be provided in a future firmware release.
Assuming the 1080i60/59.94 HD-SDI input was created from a 24/23.98p frame rate, then Flash XDR a menu option will be available to remove the extra frames/fields.
The HD-SDI monitor output will be the 1080p24/23.98 rate, but the video will be delayed 2 frames. The MPEG2 stream, as recorded, will be at the 1080p24/23.98 frame rate also.

Is the timecode input needed in order to remove the inverse telecine?
No, Flash XDR does not use the time-code to remove the extra frames.

Can Flash XDR flip the image from the Red Rock Micro, P+S Technik, or other 35 mm adapters?
In a future release, a menu option will be provided to flip the frame to accommodate many 35mm lens adapters. The HD-SDI monitor output will show the corrected image, but delayed two frames.

I have two (or more) cameras; can I synchronize the capture on a frame by frame basis (for 3-D, for example)?

Yes, if all video sources are frame synchronized using a blackburst generator to each camera, then all the video captures to each Flash XDR box will be synchronized.
If the various cameras are not frame synchronized then the captures will be accurate to +/- 1 frame.

Does Flash XDR have a pre-record buffer?
In a future release, the Flash XDR will allow for a pre-record buffer of approximately 8 seconds at 100 Mbps rate and16 seconds at 50 Mbps.

Can I record continuously, overwriting the oldest footage?

Not at this time. We are considering this for a future firmware update.

Do you plan to support SD-SDI?
This is planned for a future release. However, video and audio will still be recorded in MPEG2 format, not DV.

How can I monitor the video?

Flash XDR has two HD-SDI outputs, which are active during record (loop-thru), as well as playback. One output can go to the monitor and the other can be used for another purpose.

Is a color bar generator included?
This is planned for a future release. Our plans are to automatically output a SMPTE color bar pattern if no incoming HD-SDI signal is detected (while the box is operating in record mode).
Additionally, we plan a menu option to output a color bar pattern through the HD-SDI outputs.
