From Sony comes this high-definition recorder to capture HD videos of medical procedures:
Sony Electronics today introduced an optical HD recorder to capture and store high-definition video of medical procedures in 1440 x 1080i resolution. The device can record and store up to two hours on a 23GB PFD-23 XDCAM® disc, which is sealed to help prevent scratches and preserve data with minimal degradation for more than 50 years, based on Sony’s accelerated testing.
The PDW-70MD XDCAM HD recorder integrates a 3.5-inch (viewable area measured diagonally) color LCD screen that allows users to view thumbnail-sized stills of footage accessible through random access memory. This enables users to quickly identify points of interest without manually winding through hours of footage…
The recorder has a compact design and can be positioned horizontally or vertically to improve integration within existing digital operating rooms.
The PDW-70MD recorder is available through Sony resellers at a suggested list price of $14,995.
