VideoTank HD Flash-Based Video Recorder

You won’t be able to get your hands on one until June or July, and presumably this mish-mash of a product shot isn’t what the final version will look like, but if you need a rugged, compact, professional-grade H.264 video encoder, the VideoTank HD should suit your needs. At just 3.3 x 3.3 x 1.6 inches in size it’s perfect for field work, with video being captured/saved to swappable compact flash cards, and capacities up to 32GB in size being supported which is enough for 2 hours of 1080i material.

There’s a basic LCD display on board for adjusting settings, though the recorder can also be controlled via RS-485 or USB if you happen to have a laptop on hand, and other notable features include a headphone jack, mic inputs and even high-end outputs like HD-SDI, but the most important feature, the price, has yet to be revealed.

    I see three ports for I'm assuming the headphone jack, mic inputs and an output, but all the other ports seem to be invisible and that is a small box. Hope it isn't a box covered in ports.
