Coming soon: CineDeck is a combined solid state recorder and on-cam monitor
In the race of various vendors to create a market for solid-state, high-quality HD recorder, there have been a spate of new products. These include the Aja KI Pro, Convergent Design’s NanoFlash, Focus Enhancements’ FS-H200, and Two’s OB-1. All of these are devices that can route around your camcorder’s compression system and record higher bit rates, and therefore higher video quality.
But the CineDeck is one of the more interesting in that it combines its recording device with a 7-inch high-res field monitor, allowing not only two devices in one, but the ability to edit clips in the field on the device itself.
According to their PR rep Kevin Bourke, CineDeck will be available next week – March 1, to be exact. List price is $7,995.
