Installation and
Site Requirements
Screws
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.
Screws
STEP 3:
Connect the FS-2/2E unit to the wall
current using the attached power cord.
Inserting the Internal 3.5” IDE
Drive

Using External Disk Drives
Lock Handle
Drive Bay
STEP 3:
In addition to using a 3.5” 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 19 for instructions on preparing drives before use.
Release Lever
Press the Lock Handle flush with the
chassis face to lock the drive in place.
To remove the drive, slide the Release Lever to the
right. The Lock Handle disengages. Pull the drive
toward you to remove it.
NOTE: This drive is not intended for hot-swap
operation.
NOTE: 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.

Power Rocker Switch and Power LED
This is the FS-2/2E's main power switch. This switch, although mechanical, is controlled using software. When the
power switch is set to ON and then OFF, in most cases the unit takes a moment to power down. During this time, the
FS-2/2E is ensuring that any files that have not been closed properly in a record session get closed. This prevents errors
occurring on particular files. The green LED above the power switch is ON when the unit is powered up.

press RECORD, the FS-2/2E sometimes displays
NO SPACE LEFT. Focus Enhancements advises
that when a disk drive is close to being full, you
make sure other disk drives are readily available in
order to avoid lost footage.
Normal Record
This is the standard and default record mode. When
you press REC, the FS-2/2E begins standard

into REC PAUSE mode. Press it again to put the
FS-2/2E into RECORD mode.
Press STOP once to pause your recording. To
STOP the recording session entirely, press STOP

Retro Disk
RETRO DISK Record constantly buffers video in a

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.

FS-2/2E FUNCTIONS
Hold the button for more than 3
seconds to allow numbers to increase
by 10 times.
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 FS2/2E's REC button 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.
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 functioning 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.
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.
NOTE: 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” will
now appear 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, 1-003, 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 essentially in standard
record mode (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 again (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 sure FS-2/2E is in STOP mode
before removing the disk drive from the system. Do
not attempt to remove it when the FS-2/2E is in
REC or REC-PAUSE mode.
Retro Cache
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.

FS-2/2E FUNCTIONS
Pressing the REC key when in RETRO CACHE
mode puts the FS-2/2E 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 RECORD 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 leaves 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.
Loop Record
When you select LOOP RECORD when 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).
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.
NOTE: Loop record only works with one disk drive.
Still
When you select STILL when REC has begun, a
single frame is grabbed.
You can grab a still quickly by pressing SHIFT +
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 NORMAL REC
mode.

FS-2/2E FUNCTIONS
Syncro Slave
The FS-2E and the FS-2 (with the 2.0 upgrade), has
two settings in Syncro Slave:
NEW FILE - When using this setting
(the default), 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 FS-2/2E
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 FS-2/2E’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 twice.

recorded + 1 as the timecode
number for the first frame of the
next recording.
(2) Uses the number entered by a

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 Mode - After a disk is
mounted (at startup, upon manual
connect) and after the track list has
been constructed, the FS-2/2E 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).

(Factory default is MEDIUM).
Audio Correction Mode allows you to alter the
performance of the audio error corrector while
recording. It is useful when recording to the FS-2/2E
from tapes containing dropouts. Error correction
only effects AVI 2, Canopus AVI, Matrox AVI,
QuickTime, AVID OMF, Pinnacle, 24p QuickTime,
and 24p AVI Type 2. It does not effect RawDV or
AVI 1. The selections are:
OFF: No audio correction.
MEDIUM (default): “Normal” clean
tapes played back on a camcorder or
other VTR with clean heads. When
error correction occurs, the audio can
be muted for brief periods of time.
HIGH: For cases where there are
visible picture disturbances and likely
long audio dropouts (1/2 sec and up).
When you select RESTORE the FS-2/2E searches
for a saved user preference on the disk and if found,
restores your PREFERENCES. PREFERENCES
are a snapshot of all settings that can be saved on
the FS-2/2E.

How to Put Recorded Clips
on a Computer System
Once you have recorded clips to a FireWire disk
drive using FireStore, 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 2-18 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 6-pin to 6-pin FireWire
cable and connect power to the drive if necessary.
Consult the FireWire disk drive documentation for
more information.

STEP 1:
On a Windows-based computer
system, double click the My Computer
icon on the top left hand corner of the
desktop. You will see a window similar
to the following:
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)

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).
STEP 2:
Locate your FireWire disk drive. This
will probably be labeled E:, F:, G:, and
so on. (drive C: is usually your
computer's main disk drive).
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.
STEP 3:
Once you have identified it, double
click on the FireWire disk drive.
When clips are being recorded to FireStore that
exceed 9 minutes in length, FireStore automatically
creates a new file without dropping any frames.
Once opened, you should see a window similar to the following:
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.
FS-2 and FS-2E Studio DTE Disk Recorders User Guide

Part Number: MANL-0927-03
Using the FS-2/2E
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 FireStore
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.
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.
STEP 1:
If you have trouble, you can locate the
name of the external drive by selecting
“My Computer” on a Windows system.
On a Mac, the FireWire drive should
appear on the desktop.
When utilizing the Avid OMF file format, you must
follow the following steps to import clips.

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 FireStore, ten
folders are created numbered 0 through 9. After the
drive is formatted on FireStore, 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 2-2. To
rename each folder, click on the folder name until it
is highlighted, then type in the desired name of the
folder.
NOTE: Folder names cannot exceed eleven
characters.
Folders are ordered on FireStore in numerical
followed by alphabetical order. For instance, if
folders are named “Scene 1”, “Scene 2” and
“Auditions”, they appear on FireStore 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:
STEP 1:
Press the PLAYLIST button to bring up
the playlist menu.
STEP 2:
Select either OPEN, to choose an
existing playlist, or NEW, to create a
new one.
STEP 3:
Exit the PLAYLIST menu by pressing
the MENU button
Now you are ready to mark your scenes. Use the
following procedure:
STEP 1:
Play your pre-recorded clip from the
FS-2/2E.
STEP 2:
When you encounter the start of your
scene, pause the FS-2/2E and then
press the MARK IN button. The MARK
IN button should light up.
STEP 3:
Play your clip again to the end point
and pause.
STEP 4:
Press MARK OUT. The MARK OUT
button lights.
STEP 5:
Press the PLAYLIST button to save the
marked scene.
STEP 6:
Mark the rest of your scenes using the
same procedure.
STEP 7:
When you have completed marking
your scenes, you must save the playlist
to disk. Stop the playback on the
FS-2/2E and press PLAYLIST.
STEP 8:
Select the SAVE menu option, enter
the playlist name.
STEP 9:
Press NEXT, and then press YES to
confirm your request to save the
playlist. The playlists are saved in the
PLAYLIST folder on your hard drive.
Advanced users can delete or change the order of
scenes using the PLAYLIST->EDIT menu options.
For FS-2E users, or FS-2 (with 2.0 upgrade), you
can also use the web interface (shown below) to
edit the current playlist. Use your browser to
connect to the FS-2E, and select the PLAYLIST
tab.
