The Maxell VC102 is a lightweight, ultra-portable tapeless video capture device optimized for direct recording from virtually any FireWire-enabled DV video camera. Featuring cost-effective, high-capacity storage, native QuickTime and AVI support, and other Direct-to-Disk capabilities that you have come to rely on, the VC102 is designed to help you save time, effort and money in the field. Thanks to VC102, gone are the wasted hours (and dollars) digitizing tape. Instead, production pros can \"recapture\" their most precious resource - time.
With its internal rechargeable battery, VC102 connects to HD, HDV, and DV camcorders to simultaneously or independently capture footage to tape and/or a removable high-capacity iVDR EX hard drive cartridge directly from the camera\'s FireWire port. When shooting is complete, you can set your camcorder to VCR mode to play the scenes on the viewfinder or simply plug directly into your computer\'s FireWire port to edit or play your video footage at anytime. With VC102\'s broad video format and non-linear editing (NLE) compatibility video pros can easily leverage today\'s burgeoning instant or \"same-day\" editing (SDE) applications - facilitating not more efficient ways of recording and editing video, but also \"capturing\" high levels of profitability.
