"The MCE QuickStream DV/HDV re-engineers the digital professional's workflow and completely eliminates the time-consuming and inefficient process of capturing your DV or HDV footage from tape to your PC or Mac. The QuickStream DV/HDV, at approximately the size of a stack of 3x5 cards and at only 10.5 ounces, is the smallest and lightest FireWire DV and HDV capture hard drive available today. The completely portable QuickStream DV/HDV captures high quality HDV footage, in addition to DV footage, on-the-fly, via your camera's FireWire port, in your choice of file-format (.MOV, .AVI2, .DV, or .M2T for HDV) while you are shooting! When shooting has been completed, simply unplug the QuickStream DV/HDV from your camcorder's FireWire (1394, i.Link, etc.) port and plug it into your PC or Mac editing system's FireWire port and begin editing and/or viewing your footage IMMEDIATELY! Its versatile top and bottom 1/4-20 screwholes allow it to be mounted between your camcorder and tripod or on top of your camcorder via the included hot-shoe adapter. Features: –Capture up to 12 Hours of DV or HDV footage from your camcorder to the QuickStream DV/HDV's internal FireWire hard disk WHILE YOU ARE SHOOTING. – Connects to your camcorder with a single included FireWire cable.– Rugged, lightweight aluminum enclosure withstands the rigors of on-location, as well as in-studio, videography.– 1/4-20 Screw-hole mounts on top and bottom allow it to be mounted or attached wherever it is most convenient.–Instantly Review DV footage on your camcorder. – Always-on 6 Second Pre-roll Buffer ensures you never miss a shot.– Battery and Hard Drive Level Indicator– Windows and Mac Compatible– Selectable File Formats. DV: .avi, .mov, .dv. HDV: .m2t – Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Internal Battery charges from included AC Adapter or 6-pin powered FireWire port provides up to 100 minutes of non-stop recording time. – Capture DV or HDV footage entirely without Tape, or Capture with Tape as a backup. – Record button on camcorder activates simultaneous recording to tape and recording to QuickStream DV/HDV Hard Disk. – Save wear and tear on your camcorders tape mechanism. –Free up your camcorder by not having it tied down while performing traditional MiniDV tape capturing. – Supported by most popular PC and Mac video editing applications such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Express, Vegas, iMovie, QuickTime Pro, Vegas, Canopus DV Storm, Avid, Pinnacle Studio, etc. Attached to a DV or HDV Camcorder, the all-new QuickStream DV/HDV is a portable, lightweight, (just 10.5 ounces!) self-powered DV and HDV recorder... capturing your clips in the format of your choice, as you shoot, one clip created automatically for every start and stop of your camcorder's record button... placing each clip neatly inside a special folder on the drive. Later, attached to your computer, the QuickStream DV/HDV transforms itself into a high-performance FireWire hard drive... already recharging its internal battery if it senses power on your FireWire bus. Your clips are waiting and can be transferred to your main drives with blinding speed or edited right from the QuickStream DV/HDV. The interface is intentionally simple and uncluttered. We believe videographers want to look at their shots... not their equipment. Attached silently to your camera or wherever is most convenient, the new QuickStream DV/HDV responds to the Record button on your DV or HDV camcorder to start and stop capturing... flawlessly recording to its internal hard drive everything you record to tape... a seperate clip is created on the new QuickStream DV/HDV each time you hit start and then stop on your camcorder. Your tape now becomes a very economic backup to whatever you record to the QuickStream DV. When recording to the QuickTime format (.mov), timecode information is captured that is identical to that being recorded to tape. This timecode information is usable in editing applications that utilize this format such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and QuickTime Pro among others. The new QuickStream DV/HDV includes both top and bottom 1/4-20 screw-hole mounts located directly on its case! This is the same industry standard screw-hole attachment found on the bottom of every camcorder on the market and already utilized by a huge array of readily available accessories. Now, in addition to being able to mount the new QuickStream DV/HDV on top of your camera using the included hot-shoe adapter, or underneath to your camcorder's 1/4-20 screw-hole, your new QuickStream DV/HDV can now also be mounted, or sandwiched, between your camcorder and tripod! All hardware required to do this is included! Now even more so, the new QuickStream DV/HDV not only complements your existing camera equipment, it quickly integrates into and becomes part of it."
