Meeting the Demands of HD Production
Wafian recorders meet all high quality HD and SD production requirements by delivering full 1920 x 1080 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 digital 10-bit recording. Our HR series recorders allow you to select multiple frame rates and formats, providing the flexibility you need while on set and during post-production.
Our newly designed HR-2 and HR-F1 provide the most reliable and cost effective HD recording solution on the market without sacrificing quality. Wafian designed its HR series recorders to seamlessly fit into your workflow and eliminate the need to use tape.
HD Studio Quality: Record full resolution 1920 x 1080 digital 10-bit component recording, meeting the highest industry standards for production, editing, and broadcast.
Digital Master Quality: Our DDRs record 1080/23.98PsF, 1080/24PsF, 1080/24P and more, providing you with Digital Master quality for post production.
Record in Multiple Formats: The capability to record and playback 1080i, 1080P, 1080PsF, 720P provides flexibility and full High Definition compatibility for your workflow.
Simplified Workflow: Recording direct-to-disk provides end users with a better workflow. There is no need to ingest your footage from tape at real time, simply drag and drop your footage across your network at up to 3x real time through FireWire, USBII, or Gigibit Ethernet and start editing.
Offloading Footage On-set: Even while on set, offload footage through Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire, or USBII. Because you are simply transferring bits of data electronically, you team will always work with identical copies of your digital master.
Wavelet Compression: Unlike DCT compression found on tape where quality is drastically reduced over time, Wavelet compression softens only after a large number of generations. Using the award winning Cineform Intermediate, the HR-1 provides more than 15 visually lossless generations of post-production rendering.
