CitiDISK R258 recorder

Shining Technology has announced an addition to its line of tapeless recording and conversion hardware for video and broadcasting, the CitiDISK R258. Designed as a portable tapeless video recorder using high-capacity removable storage media, the device features a cartridge capacity up to 250GB which can hold a maximum of 19 hours of DV/HDV footage or 5 hours of HD footage. Users can attach the video recorder to most FireWire-enabled video cameras such as those from Canon, JVC, Panasonic and Sony. The device is offered in both traditional hard drive and solid-state memory configurations.

CitiDISK R258 comes complete with a built-in LCD screen with scrolling menu that provides status information, and is capable of supporting QuickTime, AVI, and MXF file formats. The device was made to be eco-friendly by consuming less power than the usual hard drive, and is optimized for use in high altitudes, cold weather, and rugged conditions. Additional exporting capabilities allows users to transfer the digital footage to editing applications including Final Cut Pro, Avid, Canopus, Adobe, Matrox, Sony Vegas, and Dayang Montage Extreme.

CitiDISK R258 should be available in the fall of 2009. Pricing information has yet to be released.
