DNF addresses needs of Sony DSR-DR1000 users

DNF Controls has released its enhanced ST304-DSR1K Slow Motion Controller, now with highlight
list playout. The ST304-DSR1K Slow Motion Controller allows
Sony DSR-DR1000 users to quickly and easily build, edit, and playout up to 10
highlight lists — with up to 20 elements each — per playback channel.

“Speed is everything in the world of live sports
production, and we’ve added the highlight list feature to our ST304 controller
to give Sony DSR-DR1000 users more flexibility in preparing exciting segments
within a very short time frame,” said Dan Fogel, DNF Controls’ president. “With
this new functionality, the ST304 helps broadcasters and other production
professionals bring the best of sports action to fans quickly and
accurately.”

The ST304-DSR1K provides precise, easy, reliable,
and affordable VTR-like control of Sony’s DSR-DR1000 DVCAM hard-disk recorder,
giving users the ability to create, save, and quickly recall clips for instant
replays. The controller takes advantage of Sony’s hard-disk technology for
instant access and simultaneous record and playback functionality. This pairing
allows operators to mark cue points on the fly and play back video instantly,
even as recording continues.

DNF Controls’ ST304-DSR1K-T supports two record and
two playback channels, provides a T-bar for fast, smooth slow-motion instant
replays, and features single-keystroke cue marking for access to up to 100 cue
points per playback channel.
