High definition acquisition  

Gorgeous quality without the expensive overhead of HD is the benefit from the Avid DNxHD codec. The Avid DNxHDTM codec is engineered to withstand the rigors of multi-generational processing and leverage today's collaborative networks.  More on the Avid DNxHD codec.

Acquire tapeless

Acquire, access, and archive with the state-of-the art DNxHD X10 Recorder. No need to digitize because the HDN-X10 does it for you by writing Avid compatible MXF video directly to the FieldPak disk drive.  Simply plug the FieldPak into a PC adapter to begin editing.

Add metadata before, during, or after recording, or let the DNxHD X10 Recorder log it for you

NLT's Smart Acquisition Technology revolutionizes the nonlinear acquisition process capturing metadata you input (attributes describing the clip you are recording, more than camera attributes),  so Production 'dailies' are logged automatically, and instantly ready for retrieval. Eliminates time capturing raw video and spending hours annotating and sorting.

The HDN-X10 Recorder captures your metadata in real-time simultaneously as you record (live logging) - unlike any product on the market today. Metadata applied are your custom, specific settings. Switch between viewing your data settings and captured video at the press of a button.

Manage clips you record easily

As easy as you capture, edit, delete, store, save, and manage your own personal digital photos, you can do the same with your Production clips. Create bins to store clips, organize and manage bins as you do other digital media using the familiar file folder structure. The HDN-X10 color LCD panel makes it easy to create and name bins and clips, or you can use the new SAT PakTools software to manage your bins and custom metadata.

Automatically create a proxy clip as you record  

You can view Proxy clips instantly with a standard Windows Media Player. Use a Proxy copy of the video for distributing clips to individuals, archive, or send to a server. Every clip will have it's own enhanced, descriptive metadata. Use your USB thumb drive to retrieve Proxy video from the HDN-X10, even between shots. Use the Proxy as a light weight copy, or send the clip or Proxy with your custom embedded metadata to others. It's that simple.

Be compatible with the industry's most up-to-date products

The HDN-X10 uses Avid's DNxHDTM compression, as well as MXF standard file formats supporting multi-vendor workflows. It is also nonlinear editor compatible with leading industry products from vendors such as Avid, Apple, Quantel, and XOS Technology.

Use RetroLoop and never miss the start-of-the-action

Catch the start of every clip before you think it will happen with the RetroLoop feature. Simply set the RetroLoop time, and record. You will never miss the speaker stepping out on the platform, or other key action shots ever again. RetroLoop begins recording before the action begins.
