Assign Custom Metadata on the Fly
With the FS-CV, you can personalise and optimise workflow while you
shoot. With your wireless handheld device or laptop, you can access the
FS-CV through a browser, define metadata, and assign it to video while
you're recording, eliminating the need to tag footage when the shoot is
over. During postproduction, simply transfer clips, complete with
metadata from the FS-CV to your NLE system or PX Media Server. All of
the information that you assigned during the shoot goes with the clips,
saving you hours or even days of logging time.

Designed to Transform Workflow at the Recording Stage
Not only does the FS-CV enable you to go straight from shooting to

fields for your shoot, add metadata tags to footage while its
recording, and transfer edit-ready clips to your NLE system or PX Media
Server, complete with camera-generated and custom-defined metadata.
This simple three-step process dramatically streamlines workflow and
saves numerous hours typically spent reviewing, logging, and tagging
footage after it's shot.
Create Metadata Templates
With your wired or wireless laptop or handheld device, access the FS-5
through its browser-based interface, define metadata categories and
fields, and save them as a template on the FS-5.
Tag Media on the Fly
When you're ready to shoot, access the metatdata template on the FS-5
from the browser on your laptop or handheld device and assign metadata
as you record. Use the metadata fields in your template or create new
metatdata tags on the fly.
Transfer and Organize Media
After the shoot, transfer clips from the FS-CV to your NLE system or to
the PX Media Server. Custom metadata is transferred with your footage,
making it simple to search for and organize clips.
