MovieRecorder captures video using a PCIExpress video card. It can record in any format that QuickTime supports (Apple ProRes, DVCPro HD, DVCPro 50, DVCPRO HD, DV, etc). Video clips captured using MovieRecorder can be edited during the actual ingest, making it very handy for live sports editing. Additionaly you can schedule your recordings.
ABOUT THE PRO OPTION:
The VTR control, Proxy creation and Batch Capture feature and metadata support will not be active with the standard version of MovieRecorder. If you want to enjoy these features, you will need to order the Pro Option.
HOW MANY LICENSES DO YOU NEED?
You will need to order one license per channel (video input device). So if you want to use MovieRecorder DUAL, you will need to order 2 licenses, + the options needed for each channel (video input device).
SERIAL NUMBER OR DONGLE ?
By default, when ordering a license, you will receive a Serial Number by email that will require an activation using an internet connection. Before moving your serial number to another computer, you will need to deactivate it form the first computer. We strongly advise ordering the dongle option in cases of a critical use of the software, for example, if you need to move your license frequently from one computer to another, OR if you want to quickly move the license from the main computer to the backup in case of a hardware malfunction.
For more information on the activaton/deactivation process or the dongles, you should have a look at the document Application Licensing Explained" available from the Support > Download Document page of the Softron website.
