Flashbox


FlashBox - On-board recorder for digital movie cameras

"FlashBox records and displays uncompressed and compressed HD sequences in YCbCr422 or RGB 444 or Dual Stream YCbCr. Its compact size of 175 x 115 x 74 mm and its light-weight of 1500 gramms makes it dockable to any camera or camera dolly. FlashBox records on SSD cartridges. Depending which mode is selected it can operate with two cartridges for Dual HD-SDI or with one for recording via Single Link HD-SDI. The cartridges can be connected to a server or PC for download of the takes by USB or SATA adapter. The power consumption is ca. 20 Watt so that the FlashBox can be feeded by the camera power supply."

others:

Grass Valley Venom: 28W in record /23W in standby (12V)

S-TWO OB-1: "Draws less than 20W @12VDC (with FlashMag!)" ;)

Panavision SSR-1: 11-17V DC, 40 Watts :angry: maximum in record, 6W in low power standby

Keisuko UDR-D100: "Less than 65W"

Sony SRW-1 approx. 60 Watts


So 20 Watts does not sound too bad after all this.........

20watts isn't all that bad. Thats only like 1.7amps. Less would of course be better, but in the high end HD world unfortunately this is what we have to deal with.

Those suck. I replaced the original 100 watt bulb with a 23 watt fluorescent like they're all telling me, but the brownie baking performance is less than stellar. Crocker needs to keep up with the times, man.

I'm pretty impressed by this flash recorder, personally... If it can handle the full capabilities of 880 Mbs (Doesn't say that though) at such a small size, well, that's just impressive... I'm hoping flash media will completely replace hard drive RAID arrays. Within a couple years, I should be able to edit 12 bit 4:4:4 on a macbook pro using just external portable drives
