MacroSystem, Inc., the inventor of standalone nonlinear video editors, released a new conversion box that provides live,
full-resolution display of HDV material. With this technology, individuals may now efficiently archive, duplicate, and view
HDV footage without compromising the resolution through compression and lengthy conversion times.
The MacroSystem HDV RT/HD debuts as a unique product in the market by providing individuals with a way to work with native
HDV material in a convenient studio setting, without requiring a larger and more expensive HDTV monitor.
"The MacroSystem HDV RT/HD continues the Macrosystem legacy of providing cutting-edge technologies that are easy to
use. Extending now to all editing platforms and applications, this exceptional product serves HDV demands that are not
currently answered by other products on the market today," said Chet Davis, vice president of marketing and sales for
As the HDV format battles wages on between Blu-ray and HD-DVD, individuals now require a cost-efficient method for
preserving and backing up HDV footage. MiniDV tapes are inefficient, costly, and put the footage at risk of degradation

lower-resolution "proxy" version. The Macrosystem High Definition Video RT/HD addresses these concerns, providing
individuals with a powerful multi-purpose tool that’s well suited for any HDV environment.
The Macrosystem HDV RT/HD connects via FireWire and in realtime enables the full-resolution HDV signal to be viewed via

combination of these formats. Ideal for professionals and prosumers working with HDV streams, the Macrosystem HDV RT/HD is a
solution for vendors using industrial HDV presentations and Point of Sale HDV applications where playlists and continuous HDV
