FutureVideo Launches New V-Station HD

Multi-channel FHD and 4K Capture/Streaming Packages For Systems Integrators & AV Contractors

Multi-Channel DVR pioneer FutureVideo Products, Inc. announced today that it has evolved its V-Station HD product range to include PC-based video capture packages and modular plug-in software for Systems Integrators and AV Contractors who provide complete turn-key solutions for their clients.

The new capture packages come in two series: V-Station HD Studio and V-Station HD Producer. Both include FutureVideo’s paradigm-shifting V-Station HD Project Media Manager (PMM) software. Studio provides choices of 4-channel or 8-channel SDI/HDMI H.264 FHD or 4K (UHD) capture cards. Producer is a FHD 4-channel video USB Interface capture device for “grab and go” recording. These packages address a variety of applications that require multi-channel video acquisition and a way to manage the project’s video/audio media and metadata from the start of production, through post, and delivery. FutureVideo’s PMM software provides the necessary tools and structure to accomplish this using the company’s proprietary “project-based workflow” concept. “Project-based” workflow is a higher-level, easier to use, and more efficient means to manage a project’s assets and its structure than is possible with traditional “file-based” workflow methods. The PMM software integrates database media management with fully synchronized multi-channel video capture and playback. It provides an assortment of software tools, including: an advanced media player with clip logging and playlist management; a full-featured clip browser; FTP file transfer; one-click backup/restore, and an intelligent “one-click” export tool to create XML files to send the project to leading third-party video editing software.

As part of the new capture package offerings, FutureVideo’s new plug-in software modules are available to augment the PMM software and enable Systems Integrators to customize the system capabilities for specific client needs. These modules include: AutoProducer for live event production; Multi-Stream for multi-channel live streaming; Multi-View for post observation/analysis; and the soon-to-be-released Insta-Vue for live multi-channel instant video replay/review.

According to Stephen Godfrey, FutureVideo’s Director of Business Development,We’re opening the door for Systems Integrators and AV Contractors to configure FHD and 4K solutions that satisfy the creative and analytical needs of clients in business, industry, academia, and government. With our new capture packages and plug-in software modules, FutureVideo channel partners can easily configure a system to match the client’s multicam needs. Our PMM software enables the creation of “application profiles” that define the UI’s nomenclature and structures to further align the system to the client’s application.”

V-Station HD systems are used for multicam applications as diverse as sales training, pharmaceutical patient testing, behavioral studies, courtroom/government proceedings, and live event production. ISRO, India’s equivalent of NASA, uses multiple 8-channel systems for their rocket launches.
