Sometimes even the best cameras could use a little sidekick. Fast Forward Video (FFV) just introduced the sideKick HD, a camera-mountable digital video recorder (DVR).

According to FFV, the sideKick HD can record content at 220Mbps at only 7:1 compression—for an extremely lifelike image.

Like most DVRs, the sideKick HD can record to any off-the-shelf, hot-swappable 2.5-inch SSD drives in the standard NLE formats. Bringing files into the NLE environment is a simple matter of moving the disk from the sideKick HD to the computer; no time-consuming ingest or transcoding operations are required.

Featuring a small footprint and flexible mounting options, the sideKick HD has a 4.3-inch with an on-board monitor for playback options, as well as scrub and jog capabilities.

At the recent 2012 NAB Show, the sideKick HD proved to work well with a variety of camcorders. Panasonic, Sony and For-A were just a few companies incorporating the sideKick HD into their camera displays.
