Multi-cam, Multi-angle Recording Sweepstakes is on!

We're giving away a FutureVideo V-Station Pro4 Plus DVR!

Why would you need one? Let's say you're an event videographer. You’re just one person, so you get other people to help shoot — but how can you edit “on the fly”? By having V-Station's new Pro4 Plus DVR, that's how. It’s got the whole multi-cam/multi-angle shooting process covered because it can record 4 full HD video tracks at 1080p60 simultaneously, recording continuously for up to 320 hours. The Pro4 Plus DVR also allows for the inclusion of markers and notes for each angle as the event occurs, and you can then use the built-in Media Player to find what you want to see.

While monitor all the channels in real-time is good, being able to do live switching and on the fly editing is even better. Notch it up even higher because the output can go to a streaming appliance for live broadcasting over the Internet. And because sound isn't peanuts, audio can be embedded into the video from the camera or an external audio device. With the HDMI, 2 channel stereo can be assigned, and with the SDI card, 4 independent audio inputs can be assigned to any of the camera's videos.

To keep things on track, all the projects are organized by managing the video clips in an SQL database media management system, so it's easy to backup or transfer projects in a single step. Keeping the automation flowing, when the shoot is done the Pro4 Plus DVR can easily transfer the project to your NLE system, with bins and sequences automatically created. Done.

Videomaker knows that having the right equipment can make all the difference. And with a retail of $3,995, having the Pro4 DVR showing up at your door sans any cost has got to go down smoother than a chocolate milkshake.

Enter the contest now because somebody is going to win it — why shouldn’t it be you?
