About the course

The HDR-80 and HDR-90 are two functionally identical recorders that differ in terms of physical appearance. The HDR-80 is a desktop recorder, and the HDR-90 is a rack mount.

ProRes 4K Video Recorder

The HDR-80 is a ProRes 4K recorder that records video on two SSD hard drives. The recorder features a high-resolution 5-inch LCD touch screen on the front for video monitoring, device settings, and configuration.



Supports Multiple Inputs and Output Configurations

Supports one 4K HDMI input, one 12G SDI input, and three 3G-SDI inputs, as well as video outputs with embedded audio. Audio input can be embedded into the video for output playback, making the HDR-80 the ideal device for live event broadcasts.


4 Channels Recording and Operated Like a Video Switcher

Not just for a single-camera setup, the HDR-80 can record up to four 1080p60 streams simultaneously to separate ProRes files. All files are synced with the same timecode, making it easy for tracking during post-production.

The HDR-80 is not only an ISO recorder; it can also be used as a four-channel HD video switcher. Display all four sources in quad-view, and you can cue and simply tap the touchscreen to switch seamlessly between cameras. PGM output can even be used for live streaming.
