ATDX today introduced its new DV MasStor Direct Recording Disk (DRD), which is designed for computer-less recording and play back of digital video in a random access format and offers FireWire connectivity and removable drive storage that supports up to 110 minutes of DV footage.
DV MasStor offers removable hard drives, an LCD panel, VCR-like controls for access to built-in features and a hard-wired remote control for control when connected to a camera. It supports AV/C(Audio Video Control) protocol for computer-based editing and is designed to run on the removable lithium ion rechargeable battery pack or the AC adapter. It is due at the end of the month for $2,500 and will be on display at Macworld Expo. [pdf]
