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.
Ground Loop WARNING:
To avoid earth or ground loops, ensure that all equipment
connected to the FS-H200 share a common ground. Use a
single, grounded outlet strip as opposed to separate outlets with
the possibility of different ground potentials.

long periods of time, unplug the FS-H200 from the power source
and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate an outside antenna system in the vicinity of
overhead power lines, electric light or power circuits, or where it
can fall onto such lines or circuits.
When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should
be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.

Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a Focus
Enhancements FS-H200 Portable Direct To
Edit ® (DTE) flash memory recorder.
FS-H200 combines powerful, industry
leading DTE Technology with it's small
size and powerful feature set to make it
ideal for DV and HDV camcorder owners.
DTE Eliminates Pre-edit Processing
The FS-H200 DTE disk recorder eliminates the need to capture,
transfer or convert video clips before editing. The FS-H200 is a standalone device that records DV25, HD 720p, and HD 1080i video to a
Compact Flash (CF) memory card as a NLE native file. In HD
Recorder mode it has the capability of capturing to flash memory HD
720p and 1080i video from HDV camcorders equipped with an IEEE
1394 interface. For most DV and many HDV compatible NLE
systems, the clips are immediately available for editing, when the FSH200 is connected to a computer.
Shoot, connect, and edit: it is now that easy.

active computer port with power.
FS-H200 Portable DTE Recorder
16
Quick Start
Battery Data
• The preferred methods for charging the battery, are:
Connect the AC adapter with the FS-H200 unit powered
off. This protects the battery by reducing internal
temperature.
Connect the FS-H200 to a computer through an active,
powered FireWire port.
• The Battery Charge LED flashes whenever the FS-H200 has
both the battery and AC power installed. This indicates that
the battery is receiving a charge.
• When the battery is charged, the battery charge symbol in
the LCD is solid green.
• An uncharged battery takes 2-3 hours to charge with the
unit powered off.
• The battery provided with the FS-H200 can supply power
to the unit for a maximum of 3 hours while in continuous
record or play modes. This time depends on the LCD key
brightness and other activity with the FS-H200.
Battery Use
Misuse can damage unit and/or cause injury such as burns if
a conductive material like jewelry, keys, or beaded chains
touch exposed terminals. Conductive material may complete
an electrical circuit (short circuit) and become very hot. Use
care in handling charged battery, particularly when placing it
inside a pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects.
Warning: Do Not Use Unapproved Battery Chargers
Use of battery chargers not approved by Focus
Enhancements could cause the battery to catch fire or
explode.
FS-H200 Portable DTE Recorder
17
Quick Start
Low Battery Power During Operation
If during operation, the FS-H200 senses that the battery charge is
low resulting in a low voltage condition, the unit alerts the user
with warning beeps -- less than 3% charge remaining -- and then
powers down in an orderly manner, protecting the stored video
clips.
Power From External DC Battery Devices
The time it takes to charge the FS-H200 battery while also
operating the unit with the AC power supply is dependent on
the usage placed on the FS-H200 while charging the battery.
Consider the following when using external DC battery devices
to power the FS-H200. The typical external DC power source for
the video device is 12V or 14.4V.

Quick Start
Operation
When operating the FS-H200 at 12V rather than 14.4V, the
power consumed remains the same, but the current draw
increases by a factor of 1.2 (14.4/12.0).
When charging the batteries, the FS-H200 applies as much
power as possible to the battery, up to a limit of about 1A
charging current. However, the overall power system limits
the total amount of current consumed to about 0.6 A
maximum based on the 15V input adapter.
The result is that when a load is added while charging the
battery, the FS-H200 automatically reduces the amount of the
charging current so that the total current through the adapter
never exceeds approximately 0.6 Amps.

Record with the FS-H200
There are two modes of recording with the FS-H200.
• NORMAL Recording
Control with the FS-H200 transport keys.
• EXTERNAL Recording
Control FS-H200 recording with the video camera record
trigger, whether using tape or tapeless.
With most modern HDV and DV cameras, EXTERNAL mode is
the preferred control method. Check the latest camera
compatibility matrix on the Focus website:
www.focusinfo.com.
• SYNCRO Recording
SYNCRO is used most often with older camcorders that
require the presence of a tape in the camcorder’s tape deck.
Before beginning recording, verify that:
1. Time and date are set.
2. Recording format is set.
3. DTE Format is set.
4. The FS-H200 is connected to the video camera according to
the explanation in Connecting FS-H200 to DV/HDV Camcorder
on page 24.
5. Camera and FS-H200 are powered on.
6. Tape is loaded in the camera, if:
• Camera requires a tape in its transport before it triggers
FS-H200 record.
• User wants to record to both tape and disk, see the
following note.
FS-H200 Portable DTE Recorder
37
Quick Start
.
EXTERNAL Operation
Tape does not need to be loaded if the camera supports external
operation, refer to, CONTROL on page 53.
Troubleshooting: Counter Not Incrementing
If the Counter does not increment while recording the camera, it is
an indication that there is no active connection between the FSH200 and the camera.
• Verify that the FS-H200 1394 DV I/O and the camera
connections are secure. It may be necessary to unplug and
then reconnect them.
When a good connection is made, the Counter will increment
and recording will start.
• Verify that FS-H200 and camera settings are correct.
Verify Record Mode Matches Source Video Content and Format
If in DV Recorder mode, HD content will not record properly. A
NTSC or PAL DV source records only on a matching NTSC or PAL
unit.
Do Not Disconnect Power or FireWire Cable
Never disconnect the power or the FireWire cable during a
recording. This will cause file corruption.
Loss of Power During Recording
If power is lost during recording it is possible to repair the
damaged file or files, refer to REPAIR DISK on page 78 and
REPAIR CLIP on page 79.

The FS-H200 provides four timecode modes when REC FORMAT is
set to HDV and DTE FORMAT is set to QUICKTIME. In M2T mode,
all TC modes act as EXT.
The following are timecode functions:
• EXT TC Default
Records the incoming source timecode. If the timecode is not
running, and the FS-H200 records the same timecode number
in each recorded frame. Choose TC EXT mode to clear any
stored number.
SETUP Menu Overridden by EXT TC Settings
When EXT TC is selected, the FS-H200 follows the timecode
mode of the camera, Drop Frame or Non Drop Frame,
regardless of the setting in the SETUP menu.
• FREE RUN
This function causes the FS-H200 to begin counting from the
value stored by TC SET. To enter a value in TC SET:
1. Go to the SETUP menu.
2. Select the TC SET item.
3. Enter values using the Right soft key and Scroll Wheel.
4. Press the Select button to enter values and return to the
SETUP menu.

FS-H200 Functions
• REC RUN DV mode only
This function creates a time code number for the first frame of
the next recording.
Take the last timecode recorded and add 1.
The FS-H200 stores the last recorded timecode in its nonvolatile memory, so it can persist across recording sessions.
• REGEN
When the FS-H200 powers up in REGEN mode, it:
• Reads the timecode of the last track recorded.
• Adds 1 to the number.
• Stores the new timecode as the number that will be
assigned to the first frame of the next recording session.
If the drive is empty, i.e. no existing recordings, the FS-H200
uses the TC SET value.

TC SET
SETUP
TC SET
Default is 00:00:00:00.
The timecode set parameter stores a user defined timecode value in
the FS-H200’s non-volatile memory. This value is available for use
by the FS-H200 immediately after exiting TC SET.
The TIMECODE modes use the TC SET value:
• FREE RUN
At the start of the next recording, the FS-H200 uses the TC SET
value as the start of the timecode count.
• REGEN
If the drive is empty, i.e. no video clips, the FS-H200 uses the
TC SET value as the starting timecode value.
• REC RUN
After a power cycle, the FS-H200 begins the first recording’s
timecode (TC) using the TC SET value. Each subsequent
recording begins its TC value where the previous recording
ends. At the next power cycle, the process starts again.
REGEN and REC RUN
In the cases of REGEN and REC RUN, the TC SET value is the
starting point when the first recording after a power cycle starts. The
TC SET value then increments in keeping the subsequent
recording.

UB Set is an early method of creating simple metadata.
Professional applications employ user bits to add metadata to
recordings to assist in post production. For example, multiple
cameras are used during a shoot. Each FS-H200 has a unique UB
setting that identifies it and the camera it serves. Later, the user bits
are used to determine from which camera station the footage was
recorded.

FS-H200 with Other Devices
In the past, to get footage into an NLE system, it was necessary to
capture / digitize the footage using a video capture card. The
FS-H200’s DTE functionality eliminates the capture stage. All that is
necessary is the moving of the video files from the FS-H200 to a
computer. This can be done by either:
• Moving the compact flash card from the FS-H200 to the
computer.
• Mount the FS-H200 as one of the computer’s hard drives.

Recording Time Depends on Recorder Mode and Resolution
The number of minutes per 2GB file depends upon the recorder
mode and resolution:
• DV - 9 minutes,
• 720p (MOV) - 10 minutes,
• 720p (M2T) - 13 minutes,
• 1080i (M2T) - 9 minutes,
• 1080i (MOV) - 8 minutes (1080/60i) or 7.5 minutes (1080/50i),
FS-H200 Portable DTE Recorder

FSH-200 with Other Devices
When clips exceed 9 minutes in length, the FS-H200 automatically
creates a new, file without dropping any frames. The two files have
the same root filename but have different two digit suffixes that
indicate the order of their creation, -01, -02, and so on. This process
can produce as many sequential 2GB files as the drive can hold.
With most NLE systems it is possible to use clips within the
timeline. Select the clips on the source volume, i.e. the connected
FS-H200, and import them directly into the NLE bin.
This makes clips immediately available in the NLE timeline.
The high transfer speed of the CF card permits direct streaming of
the clips to the NLE, thus eliminating the need to copy or transfer
the clips before their use.
UDF
UDF does not have the 2GB limitation on file size which permits
the FS-H200 to record clips of up to 1.5 hours in length.
Mac OS 10.5 and UDF Perm Setting
When using Mac OS10.5 and UDF Perm is set to Read-Write, it may
take several minutes for the disk drive to mount on the computer.
Setting to Read-Only permits faster mounting times.
Formats Supporting Recordings Longer Than 2GB
The following formats support file sizes larger than 2GB:
• M2T (HDV)
• QuickTime (DV and HDV)

Moving CF Card to a Card Reader
Most often, moving the CF card from the FS-H200 to the NLE
computer is favored method for transferring video clips from the
FS-H200 to a computer. There are two ways to do this:
• This can be done most quickly by pressing the F4 function key.
If the F4 function key is set to CF, this is the shortcut method for
invoking the Compact Flash utility: see Quick Card Removal Using F4 Function Key on page 21.
• Another way is to use the Compact Flash utility, see Remove
Card Using COMPACT FLASH Utility on page 22.
Always Remove/Insert CF Cards Using Compact Flash
Utility
To protect the files on the CF card, use the Compact Flash utility
to prepare the card for removal from the FS-H200.
After the card is removed from the FS-H200 it can be inserted into the
NLE computer’s card reader.
The CF card mounts to the NLE computer as a removable drive. How
this appears to the user depends on the operating system.
• For an Windows example, see Windows on page 93.
• For an Windows example, see MAC on page 95.
The video files are now accessible.
Remember that before removing the the CF card from the
computer, it is first necessary to dismount the card from
the operating system.

CF Card Write Cycles
Because compact flash card makers use different methods to
determine the maximum number of write cycles a card can have
during its life time and the varying claims by manufacturers, Focus
Enhancements can not guarantee the number of write cycles the user
can expect to get with a particular CF card and the FS-H200.
Card Removed Without Using CF Utility
If the FS-H200 is powered on and a CF card is removed without
running the COMPACT FLASH utility the video clip(s) on the card
may be damaged.
To correct this situation:
1. Power-down the FS-H200.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Power up the FS-H200.
This returns the unit to normal behavior.

Maximum 2.5W (500mA),
Operation Only - Does Not Charge Battery,
• Power From External DC Battery Devices
The ability to charge the FS-H200 battery when operating using
an external DC battery device is dependent on the load placed
on the FS-H200.
Consider the following when using external DC battery devices
to power the FS-H200. The typical external DC video device is
12V or 14.4V.

Operation
When operating the FS-H200 at 12V rather than 14.4V, the
power consumed remains the same, but the current draw
increases by a factor of 1.2 (14.4/12.0).
When charging the batteries, the FS-H200 applies as much
power as possible to the battery, up to a limit of about 1A
charging current. However, the overall power system limits the
total amount of current consumed to about 0.6 A maximum
based on the 15V input adapter.
The result is that when a big load is added, the FS-H200
automatically reduces the amount of the charging current so that
the total current through the adapter never exceeds
approximately 0.6 Amps.
Warranty
• FS-H200, one year, limited.
