•
Polarized
If this product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line
plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other), it will fit into the
outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert
the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should
still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Grounded
If this product is equipped with a three-wire grounding type plug, a
plug having a third (grounding) pin, it will only fit into a grounding
type power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert
the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding
type plug.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to

FS-2E Provides Greater Embedded Audio SDI Functionality
The FS-2E provides even more embedded audio SDI functionality. It includes the ability to
selectively record either channels 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 of the embedded audio of the input SDI
stream. It also provides full support of the SDI audio out. The FS-2E inserts the recorded audio
into the SDI output stream. The FS-2 does not possess these capabilities.
FS-2/2E Studio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide

Introduction
1.1 What is a DTE Disk Recorder?
A DTE Disk Recorder is a device that allows you to record or playback DV video
directly to/from a removable IDE disk drive or removable FireWire disk drives.
The FS-2/2E features analog and digital inputs and outputs including DV25, SDI,
composite, component, S-Video, AES/EBU digital audio and balanced analog
audio.
Audio and video are recorded to disk as a DV25 data stream in NLE native file
formats.
1.2 What is the FS-2/2E?
The FS-2/2E is a DTE Disk Recorder that mounts horizontally in a standard
electronics rack. With the FS-2/2E, it is possible to:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Input DV25, SDI, composite, component, S-Video, AES/EBU digital audio
and balanced analog audio and record to disk in native DV25 NLE file
formats.
Playback video from disk or transcode during recordings in DV25, SDI,
composite, component, S-Video, AES/EBU digital audio and balanced analog
audio formats.
Capture clips to hard disk at the acquisition stage. There is no need to capture
them later.
Record clips to disk in DTE Technology-based “edit-ready” file formats such
as Raw DV, AVI Type 1, AVI Type 2, Matrox AVI, Canopus AVI, Pinnacle
AVI, QuickTime and Avid DV-OMF. The FS-2E, and the FS-2 (with the
version 2.0 upgrade), also include DTE support for 24P AVI Type 2 (NTSC
only), and 24P Quicktime (NTSC only).This means clips are immediately
available to your NLE system without first having to transfer or convert the
files.
Connect your FireWire disk directly to your computer or connect it using FS2/2E which allows mounting and dismounting of the drives without recabling or computer re-boots.
Use the FS-2/2E's 10/100BaseT Ethernet port to share files over a network
using FTP. This is not suggested for larger files. The FS-2E, and the FS-2 (with
the version 2.0 upgrade), also include IP control of the FS-2/2E. This means
you can control the FS-2/2E using a standard web browser.
Jump from clip to clip without spooling through tape when in playback mode.
As well as video, record and playback embedded DV audio in 2-channel (16bit, 48kHz) format.
Record external timecode, embedded timecode or create your own timecode
using Free Run, Regen or Rec Run time code options. You can also preset
timecode and user-bit values.
Record, play and navigate using FS-2/2E's VTR-style controls.
Lock to your facilities Reference Video signal during playback and record.

Focus Enhancements recommends that FS-2/2E units be installed in a restricted
access area, such as an equipment room or closet and the installation be performed
by trained installers.
The units are designed and tested to operate reliably between +5 - +40C (41 - 104 F).
To maintain this range, consider the following:
•
•
Air temperature surrounding the equipment must remain within the specified
range.
Air flow around the equipment must be sufficient to maintain proper
operating temperatures
If in doubt about the site temperature, take measurements to be certain. If
measured temperatures fall outside the defined ambient temperature range, you
must bring the temperature within the defined range.
Storage temperature for the units must remain between -20 - +60C (-4 - 140 F).

Introduction
1.6 Mounting in a 19 inch Electronics Rack
The FS-2/2E measures 15.89” high x 17.36” wide by 3.47” deep. It is an 2RU chassis
featuring front rack mount ears to be installed into a standard 19” audio/visual
rack. There must be room behind the unit for the attachment of cables.
To mount the FS-2/2E in a standard 19” audio/visual rack, do the following:
1. Determine the desired location.
The FS-2/2E requires 3.47 vertical inches of rack space.
To prevent overheating, the FS-2/2E requires a minimum of 1.75 vertical
inches of space above and below the unit.
2. The FS-2/2E includes a pair of universal mounting ears on the front sides of
the unit that support standard 19” audio/visual racks. Using the provided
hardware, mount the FS-2/2E securely in the rack.

1.7.2 Using External Disk Drives
In addition to using a 3.5 inch IDE drive in the internal slot, you can also
connect any FireWire disk drive to the HDD I/O port on the FS-2/2E.
Power a single FireWire disk drive on the FS-2/2E at any given time.
If you are using more than one external FireWire drive, you must provide
external power to them. It may also be necessary to partition and format the
drives before their use with the FS-2/2E. Refer to Formatting the Drive on
page 13 for instructions on preparing drives before use.
Hot-swapping External FireWire Drives
You can hot-swap connected external FireWire HDDs on the FS-2/2E. This means
you can disconnect and connect drives from the system without the need to power
cycle the unit. However, make sure the FS-2/2E is in STOP mode before removing a
disk drive.

2.5.4.1
Normal Record
This is the standard and default record mode. When you press
REC, the FS-2/2E begins standard recording. Press the REC once
to put the FS-2/2E into REC PAUSE mode. Press it again to put the
FS-2/2E into RECORD mode.

Retro Disk
RETRO DISK
HDD AVAIL:
183 Min
RETRO TIME:
15 Min
EXIT
RETRO DISK Record constantly buffers video in a loop to a
determined amount of space on the hard-disk drive so that when
record is triggered, a retro time period can be added to the
beginning of any clip. You can select the RETRO DISK value to
close the available disk drive space.
1. Set RETRO TIME by pressing the
and buttons. Time is
selectable in one minute increments.
2. Hold the button for more than 3 seconds to allow numbers to
increase by 10 times.
3. Press EXIT to return to the RECORD.
Press the REC key when in RETRO DISK mode to put the FS-2/2E
into a RETRO DISK state (the FS-2/2E's REC button flashes as if in
REC-PAUSE state). The FS-2/2E is actually recording in this state,
but until you press the REC key a second time, the video records
over itself in a continuous loop. RETRO DISK always keeps at
least the selected amount of time in a series of one minute clips.
For instance, if you set the RETRO DISK value to 3 minutes, the
FS-2 always has 3 minutes (made up of three, one (1) minute clips)
of video saved to disk. As the recording goes past the 3 minute
point, a fourth clip is created. Once that clip reaches one minute,
the oldest of the previous 3 clips is deleted. Another fourth clip is
then created.
If you select a RETRO session that is 60 minutes or greater, instead
of one minute clips, the FS-2/2E creates 9 minute, 13 second clips
(2GB clips on disk). The functionality of RETRO DISK remains the
same. The larger file size prevents the FS-2/2E from reaching its
999 track limitation for very long RETRO records.
FS-2/2E Studio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide
34
FS-2/2E Functions
Due to larger files sizes, the maximum amount of drive space
available is decreased to accommodate the last recording in a
session. For instance, if you have 90 minutes of disk space
remaining, after you set RETRO record to less than 60 minutes,
the available space changes to 88 minutes of available disk space.
If you set RETRO time to 88 minutes, the recording will be made
up of about nine and a half 9 minute, 13 second clips. There must
be space available in this situation in order to record the final clip
which eventually will write over clip 1. This ensures that at any
given time, at least 88 minutes of video exists after a complete
RETRO DISK record loop.
Minimum Disk Space Requirements
The FS-2/2E must always have at least one minute of disk space (under
60 minutes) or 9 minutes, 13 seconds of disk space (when the RETRO
DISK value is set to greater than 60 minutes) remaining in addition to the
RETRO DISK value, in order to function correctly. For instance, it is not
possible to set a RETRO DISK value of one minute if only one minute of
disk space remains.
Once RETRO DISK time is set, you can exit the Menus and return
to the Main Screen. An L appears next to the record symbol on the
FS-2/2E's display. Press the REC key once to put the FS-2/2E
immediately into RETRO DISK RECORD. Clips are being recorded
to disk for X number of minutes in one or nine minute increments
(each as a separate track).
The REC button flashes (as when the unit is in pause). When you
press the REC key, the FS-2/2E leaves RETRO DISK mode and
goes into standard record.
All one minute tracks in the recorded loop sequence appear and
are saved as their own tracks on disk (for example, 1-001, 1-002, 1003, and so on) except for the recording that was in progress,
which takes on the characteristics of a standard track. At this
stage, the FS-2/2E is in standard record mode and the L on the
display disappears. No frames are lost across tracks during the
record session.
Once paused, the unit returns to RETRO DISK record mode (the L
reappears in the LCD and viewfinder) for further RETRO
recordings or until it is disabled in the RETRO DISK screen.
RETRO DISK can be used in LOCAL and SYNCRO SLAVE record
control modes.
WARNING: Make certain that the FS-2/2E is in STOP mode
before removing the disk drive from the system.
Do Not Attempt to Remove the drive when the FS-2/2E is in
REC or REC-PAUSE mode.

Retro Cache
RETRO CACHE
CACHE: 10 sec
EXIT
RETRO CACHE Record constantly caches your video in a loop up
to a 10 second data buffer. In this way, when the record is begun, a
retro time period is added to the beginning of any clip.
Pressing the REC key when in RETRO CACHE mode puts the FS2/2E into a RETRO CACHE state (the tally light on the FS-2/2E
flashes as if in PAUSE state). The FS-2/2E is actually recording in
this state, but until you press the REC key a second time, the video
records over itself in a continuous loop. It is much the same as
RETRO DISK recording, except that it utilizes a data buffer
separate to the disk drive to cache video.
RETRO CACHE is also accurate down to the frame instead of the
1 minute clips used in RETRO DISK. Once a RETRO CACHE
value is set, pressing the REC key once puts the FS-2/2E
immediately into RETRO CACHE Record. A C now appears next to
the record symbol on the FS-2/2E's display.
Video is being recorded to the FS-2/2E cache. The REC button
flashes (as if the unit is in pause). When you press the REC key,
the FS-2/2E exits the RETRO CACHE Record mode and goes into
standard record (the C on the display disappears).
Any clip recorded in this mode has the contents of the cache
added to the beginning of the clip.
Once paused, the unit returns to the RETRO CACHE record mode
again (the C reappears in the LCD) for further RETRO CACHE
recordings or until it is disabled in the RETRO CACHE by setting
the RETRO CACHE time to zero seconds.
RETRO CACHE record can be used in LOCAL and SYNCRO
SLAVE record control modes.
2.5.4.4
Loop Record
When LOOP RECORD is selected after recording has begun,
video is recorded to available disk space. Clips are recorded to
disk continuously in one-minute clips (up to 60 minutes), or 9
minute clips (for loops over 60 minutes, 2GB files).
FS-2/2E Studio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide
36
FS-2/2E Functions
When the disk capacity’s record time is reached, an additional
one-minute (or 2GB) segment is created. After this clip is
complete, the oldest one-minute clip (or 2GB segment) is recorded
over, followed by each sequential oldest clip.
When you press STOP during a record session, recording stops
and clips in the current LOOP RECORD session are saved to disk.
They are also saved in a single folder.
Loop Record Only Works with One Disk Drive.
2.5.4.5
Still
When you select STILL when REC has begun, a single frame is
grabbed.
You can grab a still quickly by pressing SHIFT and REC on the
front panel when you are in any record mode.
Use STILL with LOCAL and SYNCRO SLAVE record control
modes. If STILL is the record mode when power is cut to the unit
or it is turned off, and then rebooted, the FS-2/2E goes to

The Index at Scene option watches the DV stream for an index
marker that is recorded to tape when a new scene, or record
session starts. It depends upon the camcorder when this index is
recorded to tape. Some camcorders record the index at every
scene, or when the camera is placed in and out of record pause.
Other cameras, only record the index marker at the beginning of
every record session; in other words, the camera needs to be
placed into STOP or powered-off between indices. Refer to your
camcorder's manual for more information.

The FS-2E and the FS-2 (with the 2.0 upgrade), has two settings in
Syncro Slave:
•
•
NEW FILE - default - This setting, and the FS-2E is triggered
to stop recording from the camcorder, the current file is
closed and a new file is opened ready for the next recording.
SAME FILE - This option appends the new recording onto the
same file. This significantly cuts down on the number of files
created and is ideal for many applications.
In SYNCRO SLAVE mode, a camcorder and the FS-2/2E share the
same record function and the FS-2/2E is slaved to the camcorder.
Once it is set and you exit the CONTROL menu, they return to the
default menu screen. The FS-2/2E also immediately enters REC
PAUSE mode and a Y appears next to the record symbol on the FS2/2E interface.
All recording is controlled by the camcorder exclusively. Every
time you press the camcorder’s REC button, the FS-2/2E goes into
the selected RECORD mode. Each time you start recording on
your camcorder, a new track is created on disk.
When used with RETRO DISK or RETRO CACHE functions, as
soon as SYNCRO SLAVE is set, the camcorder begins filling up the
selected retro record buffer. Press the REC button on the
camcorder and the contents of the retro buffer are appended to the
start of your clip.
The FS-2/2E buttons (other than MENU) are locked out when in
this mode. It is also not possible to use the optional FS-2/2E
remote control units. You must exit SYNCRO SLAVE by entering
the CONTROL menu by pressing the MENU button when on the
FS-2/2E main menu. If the camcorder is set to VTR mode, the FS2/2E’s control panel becomes active in order to allow playback.
If a tape ends while using SYNCRO SLAVE mode, the FS-2/2E
continues to record.
At this point, to stop a recording, push the FS-2/2E STOP button

15th. 2005.
DATE/TIME is used when creating file names only. The FS-2/2E does

while in the EXT TC mode.
•
REC RUN - In this mode, the FS-2/2E does the following:
•
•
•
1 Uses the last timecode number recorded + 1 as the
timecode number for the first frame of the next recording.
• 2 Uses the number entered by a setting in the TC PRESET menu for the first frame of the next recording.
• The last number used is stored in the memory, so this
mode persists across recording sessions.
REGEN - After a disk is mounted (at startup, upon manual
connect) and after the track list has been constructed, the FS2/2E looks at the last track and looks at the timecode number
of the last frame in that track. The FS-2/2E stores that
number for use as the TC value (+ 1) for the first frame of the
next recording. If the drive is empty, the FS-2/2E uses the TC
PRESET(+ 1).
FREE RUN - When you enable FREE RUN mode, the FS-2/2E
begins counting from the value stored. If you use the TC
PRESET function, when the number is entered and the TC
PRESET menu is exited, the FS-2/2E begins counting from
that value.
Once a timecode value is set and the FS-2/2E is set to REC RUN or
FREE RUN timecode settings, the TC preset value becomes the
starting point for timecode.

3.3 How to Put Recorded Clips on a Computer System
Once you have recorded clips to a FireWire disk drive using FS-2/2E, you can use
those clips in most computer based DV NLE systems.
Traditionally, in order to get footage into an NLE system, it was necessary to
capture or digitize that footage utilizing a video capture card. Using the
FS-2/2E recorded clips, you can skip this capture stage by just connecting a
FireWire disk drive to your computer using an OHCI compliant IEEE-1394
(FireWire) PCI card or connect direct from the FS-2/2E using the HDD Bypass
mode (refer to HDD Bypass on page 50 for more information).
You can connect FireWire disk drives used with the FS-2/2E to any computer
system that will read a FAT 32 volume. This includes Windows 98SE, Windows
ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Mac OS9 and OS10.
Check the FOCUS Enhancements' website (www.FOCUSinfo.com) for more
information.
In order to use the FS-2/2E recorded FireWire disk drives on a computer, you must
have an active IEEE-1394 connection on your computer. You also must have loaded
any required FireWire disk drive drivers onto your computer system. Consult your
FireWire disk drive documentation for more information.
Connect your FireWire disk drive to your computer system utilizing a standard 6pin to 6-pin FireWire cable and connect power to the drive if necessary.
Consult the FireWire disk drive documentation for more information.

FS-2/2E Studio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide

Using the FS-2/2E
The FireWire disk drive can contain several different files. Clips can appear
as
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
RawDV (.dv)
AVI Type 1
(YYYYMMDDHHMMSSa01)
AVI Type 2 or 24p AVI Type 2
(YYYYMMDDHHMMSSb01)
Canopus AVI
(YYYYMMDD-HHMMSSb01)
Matrox AVI
(YYYYMMDD-HHMMSSm01 with a separate .wav audio file per track)
Pinnacle AVI
(YYYYMMDD-HHMMSSp01 with two separate .wav audio files per
track)
QuickTime or 24p Quicktime (.mov)
Avid OMF (.omf with two separate .aif audio files per track).
The FAT32 file system has a limitation such that any particular file cannot
exceed 2GB in size. This equates to roughly 9 minutes of recording time.
When clips are being recorded to FS-2/2E that exceed 9 minutes in length,
FS-2/2E automatically creates a new file without dropping any frames.
The two clips have the same primary file name, however, the last two digits
are different.
The first 2GB part of the clip is labeled with “-01” after the primary file
name.
The second 2GB segment is labeled with a “-02”. Additional 2GB segments
are labeled with a “-XX” number.
With most NLE systems on a Windows computer, it is possible to utilize
clips within the timeline by selecting the clips on the source volume (in this
case, the connected FireWire disk drive) and importing them directly into
the NLE’s bin.
Clips can then be immediately used in the NLE’s timeline.
With FireWire disk drives such as the Focus Enhancements FSHDD-1, the
drive itself is fast enough to directly stream the clips to the NLE eliminating
the need to copy or transfer the clips before use.
When utilizing the Avid OMF file format, you must follow the following
steps to import clips.

Xpress Pro, NewsCutter, Media Composer Adrenaline, and Symphony

The Avid DV OMF file format creates three files simultaneously; an OMF
video file and two separate AIF audio files. On the computer's desktop, the
files appear as shown in the next illustration.
On the FS-2/2E, the video file (OMF) and the audio files (AIF) appear as one
track.
If you delete an Avid DV OMF file, the FS-2/2E deletes the audio and video
portions at the same time.
In order to use the FS-2/2E recorded Avid DV OMF files on your Avid NLE
system from the external FireWire drive, use the following procedure.

3.5 How to Mark Scenes
The FS-2/2E Scene Marking feature allows you to mark clips for placement in
particular folders during recording, playback or stop mode.
When a drive is formatted using FS-2/2E, ten folders are created numbered 0
through 9. After the drive is formatted on FS-2/2E, you can connect the hard-disk
drive to a computer and give each of these folders a custom name (if you need help
mounting your FireWire hard-disk drive to your computer system, refer to How to
Put Recorded Clips on a Computer System on page 87. To rename each folder, click
on the folder name until it is highlighted, then type in the desired name of the
folder.
Folder names cannot exceed eleven characters.
Folders are ordered on FS-2/2E in numerical followed by alphabetical order. For
instance, if folders are named “Scene 1”, “Scene 2” and “Auditions”, they appear
on FS-2/2E as “1 Auditions”, “2 Scene 1” and 2 Scene 2”. The folder number is
added in front of the folder name on the FS-2/2E LCD display for easy
identification when using the optional remote control commander keypads.
To create a custom order to Folders, Focus Enhancements recommended that you
change the name to change the numerical/alphabetical order. For example place
numbers at the beginning of the folder name to determine the key to folder
assignments.
After you have selected your “mark to” folder, you are almost ready to mark your
scenes. Before you can start marking, you must select the playlist that will contain
your scenes. To do this, use the following steps:
1. Press the PLAYLIST button to bring up the playlist menu.
2. Select either OPEN, to choose an existing playlist, or NEW, to create a new one.
3. Exit the PLAYLIST menu by pressing the MENU button
Now you are ready to mark your scenes.
