Model Description:
The Hotronic AL86 Solid State Frame Recorder (NTSC)

Model Details

The Hotronic AL86 Solid State Frame Recorder provides the significant 6 second delay for both video and audio to instantly edit profanity during a live broadcast.In comparison, the old method needs two 2-inch or two 1-inch VTRs and a technician to operate the system.The AL86 requires no attention during operation and is more technically reliable, eliminating excess equipment, tape, and storage.

It is distinctly cost effective while saving valuable time.
