About the FlexVTR

The 1 Beyond Wrangler FlexVTR™ Archive Recorder is a cost-effective filebased digital recording and archiving system based on the LTO-5 tape standard with the universal LTFS format. Users can easily record, review, add metadata and catalog media assets, using the control software designed for
quick and easy touch or mouse control emulating standard VTR functions like Play, Record, Rewind etc. using industry standard button shapes.

Archive Design

 The Wrangler FlexVTR Allows a company to pick its archive format standards without being restricted by archive recorder limitations. Also multiple formats may be required for different purposes - e.g. a Proxy for easy review, a Highest Quality preserving the original, or a Quick and Easily Editable format.

Record Flexibility

Designed to provide the maximum flexibility in both Analog and Digital Recording Input types and the resulting stored Output Formats.
