Standalone H.264 USB Recorder / Player

HDR-1 is a standalone H.264 USB recorder / player with redundant power system (UPS) that is portable and easy to use. It records high quality format video files (up to20 Mbps in MP4), which is ideal for capturing and archiving footage from worship seminars, corporate meetings, school announcements, lectures, or live concerts. It can also be used by broadcasters to create a web-optimized proxy recording.

Recorded files can be uploaded to YouTube or any website immediately after an event without needing to transcode, which makes it easy to share your content online. Front panel buttons make it easy to use. The record/pause feature allows users to record an event conveniently as a single file even if there is a break in proceedings.
