The Datavideo HDR-45 is a hard drive based video recorder & player, with a removable hard drive enclosure.

The HDR-45 records from standard and high definition video via SDI with a convenient loop through / pass through for monitoring. RS-422 & RS-232 remote control interfaces are standard.

The HDR-45 provides a choice of recording formats including 1080i, 720p, 576i and 480i with a choice if IBP or Intraframe (i-frame).

The recorded files are compatible with a wide range of NLE and play out solutions.

The compact 2U design can be easily integrated with other equipment or can be used as a stand alone recorder/player in the studio or on location.
