About the Softron 3IB34

The Softron MovieRecorder Express is a video recording software. It captures and saves video files permanently, or automatically deletes them after a designated time period of your choice. MovieRecorder is an ideal tool for compliance recording via FireWire (HDV / DV). If you have a legal obligation to keep a log of what videos your channel has broadcast, this software will prove a trusty aid to you. It performs real-time H.264 encoding upon ingest. To run MovieRecorder, you need a Mac mini, MacPro, iMac 2009 or MacBook Pro plus a FireWire converter, or a camera. You can add optional MultiChannel capability (not included), giving you the power to record up to 4 channels on a single Mac.
