NAMM 2010: Alesis Announces the VideoTrack Handheld Video/ Audio Recorder
The VideoTrack is a portable video recorder designed for musicians capturing gigs and rehearsals, and is equally useful for everyday applications such as a night out, kids' soccer matches or creating videos to share on Web sites such as YouTube.
The VideoTrack employs Alesis' renowned audio recording technology including the same high-quality stereo condenser microphone set found on the ProTrack handheld recorder for iPod.
The VideoTrack has a quality video lens and advanced DSP image-processing technology. In addition to working as a video camera, the VideoTrack doubles as a handy still-image camera for on-the-go snapshots. Users can operate the VideoTrack on either its internal, rechargeable battery, or plugged into a wall-power source. It records onto standard SD cards and connects via USB to virtually any Mac or PC for easy video transfer.
The VideoTrack is easy to operate; with a large on-screen display and a five-way control system. Users can easily mount it on a camera tripod or table stand for stable recording. They can monitor audio by plugging in a pair of headphones and even watch playback on a TV or other monitor with the VideoTrack's video output jack.
"Video is the fastest-growing type of media in today's social media environment," said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Alesis. "The VideoTrack makes it easy to capture great looking – and great sounding – video anywhere."
The VideoTrack will be available from Dolphin Music in April 2010.
