DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER

ProCon's CitiDisk HD is a FireWire-based external hard disk digital video recorder for Panasonic's AG-HVX200 P2-based camcorder. It records DVCPRO 100 HD, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO 25, and DV from respectively equipped video cameras. The recorder captures HDV/DV footage simultaneously to its miniature high-capacity hard drive and to tape, then transfers the footage directly from the camera's FireWire port into your choice of file formats, including M2T, MOV, AVI, and DV.
