Cinescopophilia: Fast Forward Video Launch SideKick HD Studio Recorder


Fast Forward Video Launch sideKick HD Studio Video Recorder.

They’ve essentially taken their camera mounted recorder/screen, and repurposed it into a half rack studio recorder.  Why not?  You’ve done most of the work, you might as well get economy of scale, right?  It records to disc in ProRes and DNx, and has deck control and 1 Gig ethernet for server integration.

I didn’t know they had been around for 27 years.  It sounds like they’re gearing up to accelerate bringing other products to market as well.

Sorry to be snarky on a Friday morning, but I have to say the buttons (if this is a finished unit) look a little Lego-ish…….
