XL-2 straight to DVD...to duplication.
First post so be gentle ;)

I have an XL-2 that I am using for events like Marching Band etc. Here's is what I want to do:

I'd like to record a performance and have it go straight to DVD. Take the DVD and put it in a 3 or 5 disk standalone duplicator and sell to the public on site. Recording to DVD needs to be reliable...this is paramount. I don't mind messing up a duplicated DVD but the original needs to be right.

I have seen this item: Sony | DVDirect MC10 Multi-Function DVD Recorder | VRDMC10 | B&H

Has anyone seen this before or heard good or bad? It seems nice and compact which is nice. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any suggestions on Duplicators would be great. I saw this on B+H:
Microboards | QD-DVD-125 18x/48x Standalone 1:5 | QD-DVD-125

And one last thing...can anyone recommend a decent yet inexpensive shotgun mic? I hate getting the crowd noises in the video sometimes. Sometimes noise from the guys in the press box with us leaks in as well. I'm thinking a shotgun mic might do the trick.

Thanks a bunch for any help you guys can offer!

I few years ago I had an older model stand-alone DVD burner from Sony, 100% reliable.

Microboards is one of the leading duplicator manufacturers, buy with confidence.
