Kitsune DDRs 

Drastic's Digital Disk Recorders (DDRs) range from ultra-portable on-camera recorders to 2K/4K post production workhorses, and devices for most applications in between. Drastic DDRs feature wide compressed and uncompressed file format support including DPX, MOV, AVI, MXF, and TGA. Standard compression types include DV25/50/HD, AVCi, DNxHD, ProRes, MPEG-1/2/4 and h.264.  Up to 16 channels of audio are available in 16, 20, 24 or 32 bits per sample and can be saved inside the video stream, or as WAVE or AIFF files. Control of the DDRs is provided not only through a group of workflow specific user interfaces, but also through standard protocol RS-422 control (as master or slave), web browser HTML/Ajax control and remote direct network operation. Drastic's DDRs support industry standards and protocols to make them completely interoperable with legacy, contemporary and future devices and workflows.
