Grass Valley T2 Pro Intelligent Digital Disk Recorder

The T2 Pro Intelligent Digital Disk Recorder from Grass Valley comes with four 500GB HDDs and brings full high-definition capture and playback to the video professional. Additionally, it supports real-time HD cross conversion and faster than real-time playlist rendering.

This recorder is a complete and self-contained SD and HD audio/video playout center. The front-panel transport controls have the look and feel of traditional VTRs, and its 2 output and 1 record channels support SD and HD content. The crisp and clear LCD front panel can display high-quality images and is complemented by a software application suite for managing and selecting media clips, clip editing, and trimming, and playout; including playlist creation.

Featuring extensive rear-panel audio/video connectivity, it can also accept files via a USB 2.0 or by data transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. It also accepts media from other applications including HQ AVI, MPEG-2, QuickTime, Windows Media Video HD, JPEG, TIFF, TARGA, and BMP files. With the T2 iDDR (Intelligent Digital Disk Recorder), you can exchange content at high speed over a network or via removable media such as an SSD through a USB or the dedicated 2.5” (63.5mm) HDD slot.

Further, the T2 iDDR can be controlled by the Indigo A/V mixer, combining features normally found in video production switchers, presentation mixers, and audio mixers, to create a powerful presentation system. It has 2 playout channels for independent editing and previewing, or for delivering content to 2 different display systems simultaneously, including left-eye/right-eye 3D content.
