Unveiled at CES, Ion?s Twin Video is the world?s first video recorder with front and back lenses. This means anyone can capture themselves and what they are seeing at the same time on one device. The front and rear lenses can be controlled independently. While recording, Twin enables us to select and swap which picture is being recorded, split the screen to view both video feeds and even inlay picture in picture to create exactly the desired effect. This compact, web-friendly device makes vlogging, or video blogging, easy thanks to a few live editing features, has two stereo mics and records onto a standard SD or SDHC. No word on pricing; coming Q2 2010.

The 1-RU BE8500 works either as a full-featured HD encoder or as an SD/SDI encoder. It auto-senses whether the video source is SD or HD, and enables users to switch live between the two video formats without powering down. Switch-over conversion is virtually instantaneous, enabling a smooth transition for live or live on tape programming.
BE8500 delivers H.264/AVC (MPEG-4) compression technology capable of achieving more than twice the compression efficiency of the older MPEG-2 standard, with settable encode latencies ranging from 150ms to 2 seconds, according to the company.
