A friend is developing a portable disc-based HD recorder. With it you could, for example, record a real HD signal via the HD-SDI output of an HDV camera.
He is looking for input from potential users while they are still in the engineering phase. If you would like to learn more details about this or leave us some feedback, please read my post over in the HDV forum by clicking here (will open in a new window).
