Focus FS-P250

Proxy Recorder

The Focus FS-P250 Proxy Recorder makes it simple to integrate recording of proxy clips into production workflows. Attached to a Panasonic AG-HPX250/255 camera, it records proxy clips at a choice of resolutions and bit rates in parallel with high resolution clips, and captures time-codes, frame rate management and P2 metadata. Proxies are available immediately for viewing, editing, streaming and uploading to video sharing websites when recording is complete. Custom metadata may be input via the Focus FS-250’s web interface.

Focus FS-P250 records up to 800 hours of proxy video on a single 32 GB SDHC card and is powered by a removable LI-ion battery for up to 3 hours of recording on a single charge.  A built-in wireless web interface can be accessed via a PC or mobile device using the optional Panasonic AJ-WM30 wireless module.

The portable, compact Focus FS-P250 Proxy Recorder packs a wealth of functionality into a durable device that’s as small as a deck of cards and weighs only five ounces. Affordable, flexible, and easy to use, the Focus FS-P250 enables video professionals to take advantage of emerging collaborative and cloud-based workflows.
