unit that support standard 19” audio/
visual racks. Using the provided
hardware mount the FS-2 securely in
the rack.
You may need to purchase cables to connect more
than one hard disk drive to the FS-2 at a time. Your
Focus Enhancements dealer can help you identify
additional cables you may need.
Installation and Site Requirements
Screws
Focus Enhancements recommends that FS-2 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).
Screws
To maintain this range, consider the following:
‹
Air temperature surrounding the
equipment must remain within the
specified range.
STEP 3:
‹
Air flow around the equipment must be
sufficient to maintain proper operating
temperatures
Inserting the Internal 3.5” IDE
Drive
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.
Connect the FS-2 unit to the wall
current using the attached power cord.
Insert the internal 3.5” IDE drive as follows:
STEP 1:
Remove the drive from its packaging.
STEP 2:
Slide the drive carefully into the bay
until it is seated firmly.
Storage temperature for the units must remain
between -20 - +60C (-4 - 140 F).
Lock Handle
Mounting in a 19” Electronics
Rack
The FS-2 measures 15.89” high x 17.36” wide by
3.47” deep. It is an 2RU chassis featuring front rack
mount ears to be mounted into a standard 19”
audio/visual rack. There must be room behind the
unit for the attachment of cables.
To mount the FS-2 in a standard 19” audio/visual
rack, do the following:
STEP 1:
STEP 2:
Determine the desired location. The
FS-2 requires 3.47 vertical inches of
rack space. To prevent overheating,
the FS-2 requires a minimum of 1.75
vertical inches of space above and
below the unit.
The FS-2 includes a pair of universal
mounting ears on the front sides of the
Drive Bay
STEP 3:
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.

INTRODUCTION
Using External Disk Drives
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. Power a single
FireWire disk drive on the FS-2 at any given time. If
you are using more than one external FireWire
drive, you must provide external power to these
drives. It may also be necessary to partition and
format the drives before their use with the FS-2.
Refer to “Formatting the Drive” on Page 1-9 for
instructions on preparing drives before use.
NOTE: You can “hot swap” connected external
FireWire HDDs on the FS-2. 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 is in STOP mode before
removing a disk drive.
Physical Features
The FS-2 features two main surfaces, the front
control panel and the rear connector panel.

TIME LAPSE
NOTE: When an inserted or attached HDD is nearly
full, in some record sessions, the HDD time
remaining may display “001min” remaining. If
RECORD is pressed, the FS-2 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 begins standard
recording. Press the REC once to put the FS-2 into
REC PAUSE mode. Press it again to put the FS-2
into RECORD mode.
Retro Disk
RETRO DISK Record constantly buffers video in a
loop to a determined amount of space on the harddisk 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.
NOTE: It is not possible to set the retro time to the
entire available capacity on the disk.
RETRO DISK
HDD AVAIL:
183 MIN
RETRO TIME:
15 MIN
EXIT
Press the REC key when in RETRO DISK mode to
put the FS-2 into a RETRO DISK state (the FS-2's
REC button flashes as if in PAUSE state). The FS2 is actually recording in this state, but until you
press the REC key a second time, the video
recorded 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 will always have 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
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 from
reaching its 999 track limitation for very long
RETRO records.
Due to the 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 greater
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 exist
after a compete RETRO DISK record loop.
NOTE: The FS-2 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 set RETRO
DISK value, in order to function correctly. For
FS-2 Sudio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide

FS-2 FUNCTIONS
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's
display. Pressing the REC key once to put the FS-2
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
leaves RETRO DISK mode and goes into standard
record.
All one minute tracks in the set loop sequence
appear and are saved as their own tracks on disk
(for example, 1-001, 1-002, 1-003 etc.) except for
the recording that was in progress, which takes on
the characteristics of a standard track. At this stage,
the FS-2 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 Menu.
RETRO DISK can be used in LOCAL and SYNCRO
SLAVE RECORD control modes.
WARNING: Make sure FS-2 is in STOP mode
before removing the disk drive from the system. Do
not attempt to remove when FS-2 is in REC or RECPAUSE mode.
Retro Cache
RETRO CACHE Record constantly buffers video in
a loop to a 10 second data buffer to cache video so
that when record is begun, a retro time period can
be added to the beginning of any clip.
RETRO CACHE
CACHE: 10 sec
Pressing the REC key when in RETRO CACHE
mode puts the FS-2 into a RETRO CACHE state
(the tally light on the FS-2 flashes as if in PAUSE
state). The FS-2 is actually recording in this state,
but until your press the RECORD key a second
time, the video recorded 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 immediately into
RETRO CACHE Record. A “C” now appears next to
the record symbol on the FS-2's display.
Video is being recorded to the FS-2 cache. The
REC button flashes (as if the unit is in pause). When
you press the REC key, the FS-2 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 REC
Menu.
RETRO CACHE RECORD can be used in LOCAL
and SYNCRO SLAVE RECORD control modes.
Loop Record
When you select LOOP RECORD when REC has
begun, video is recorded to available disk space.
Clips are recorded to disk continuously in oneminute clips (up to 60 minutes – 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 works with only one disk drive.

On the FS-2, files are identified by TRACK and
VOLUME (disk drive) number on the LCD. For
instance, a file on the FS-2 LCD identified as 1-043
is clip number 43 on Volume (disk) 1.
On a computer, files are identified by their base file
name made up of DATE and TIME. For instance, a
clip named 20030615-210943-01.mov is a clip that
began recording at 9:09:43PM on June 15th. 2003.

REC RUN Mode - In this mode, the
FS-2 does the following:
(1) The last timecode number
recorded + 1 is used as the
timecode number for the first frame
of the next recording.
(2) The number entered by a
setting in the TC PRESET menu is
used for the first frame of the next
recording.
‹
REGEN Mode - After a disk is
mounted (at startup, upon manual
connect) and after the track list has
been constructed, the FS-2 looks at
the last track and looks at the
timecode number of the last frame in
that track. The FS-2 stores that
number for use as the TC value (+ 1)
for the first frame of the next recording.
If the drive is empty, FS-2 uses the
value (+ 1) stored in memory.
FREE RUN Mode - When the user
enables FREE RUN mode, the FS-2
begins counting from the value stored.
If the user uses the TC PRESET
function, when the number is entered
and the TC PRESET menu is exited,
the FS-2 begins counting.
Once a timecode value is set and FS-2 is set to

Products such as the Pinnacle AVI file format were
created for use with products such as Pinnacle
Liquid Edition. The Pinnacle AVI file format creates
three files simultaneously during a recording; an
AVI video file and two separate WAV audio files
labeled as left and right. An additional “Edition.ale”
file per recording session is also created which
contains timecode data. This file must be kept with
the media. This is shown in the following illustration.

ORGANIZE OMF
When files are recorded in the AVID OMF file
format, this command automatically takes all the
OMF and AIF audio files at the end of a recording
session and places them into a folder on the disk
drive named “OMFI MediaFiles”. When the disk is
connected to a computer, this folder is recognized
by Avid’s Media Tool feature enabling direct import
of files into the Avid timeline.
Once clips have been imported into Liquid Edition,
an Index file is created on the disk drive per clip. Do
not delete this file since it is required to continue
work in the particular project. The illustration below
shows this.
NOTE: If you have selected files as a KEEPER or
they have been SCENE MARKED, you cannot use
this feature and keep files in their selected folders.
If you would like to use clips in KEEPER or SCENE
MARKED folders in Avid, manually create the
“OMFI MediaFiles” folder when your disk drive is on
your computer and drag the desired clips into this
folder.

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 FS2 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 connection of use the HDD
Bypass mode (refer to page 2-15 for more
information).
FireWire disk drives used with the FS-2 can be
connected 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. FAT32 volumes will not work
with Windows NT and older Macintosh based
operating systems.
Check the FOCUS Enhancements' website
(www.FOCUSinfo.com) for more information.
In order to use the FS-2 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
(some FireWire disk drives receive power from the
computer's FireWire connection.
Consult your FireWire disk drive documentation for
more information).

(YYYYMMDDHHMMSSa01)
‹
AVI Type 2 or 24p AVI Type 2
(YYYYMMDDHHMMSSb01)

‹
QuickTime or 24p Quicktime (.mov)
‹
Avid OMF (.omf with two separate .aif

‹
MXF (.mxf)
The FAT32 file system has a limitation where any
particular file cannot exceed 2GB in size. This
equates to roughly 9 minutes of recording time.
When clips are being recorded to FireStore that
exceed 9 minutes in length, FireStore automatically
creates a new file without dropping any frames.
FS-2 Sudio DTE Disk Recorder User Guide

Part Number: MANL-0927-02
Using the FS-2
The two clips will have the same primary file name,
however, the last two digits will be different.
The first 2GB part of the clip will be labeled with “01” after the primary file name.
The second 2GB segment will be labeled with a “02”. Additional 2GB segments will be labeled with a
“-0X” 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, the video file (OMF) and the audio files
(AIF) appear as one track.
When utilizing the Avid OMF file format, you must
follow the following steps to import clips.
If you delete an Avid DV OMF file, the FS-2 deletes
the audio and video portions at the same time.
Using FireStore FS-2 Recorded
Avid OMF Clips on Avid Editing
Systems
In order to use the FS-2 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.
The Avid DV OMF file format was developed for use
with Avid editing systems on Windows 2000,
Windows XP or Mac 0S10. These include Avid
Xpress Pro, NewsCutter, Media Composer
Adrenaline, and Symphony (with the DV option).
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 below.
Locate the external FireWire drive on
your computer.
STEP 2:
Open the FireWire drive when you
have found it and create a new folder
named “OMFI MediaFiles”.

selected folder for easy access on an NLE system.
Do not delete the file named “grade” from the disk if
you intend to use the disk on FireStore again.
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 LCD display for easy identification when using
the optional remote control commander keypads.
To create a custom order to Folders, it is
recommended that you change the name to change
the numerical/alphabetical order.
