Combo Decks

ID #1032

Once a DV or DVCam tape is dubbed to the HDD, can I then connect from my NLE to the HDD via Firewire to transfer the footage directly from the hard drive?

If the file is in the DV format (not encoded to MPEG as a DVD file) then a compatible NLE system, connected via the IEEE-1394 port, can access the data, but only as if it was connected to a VTR—not as a file on the hard disk. The Combo Deck cannot act as a IEEE-1394 hard disk in your editing system. It can only act as a DV player.
