The FlashBack-2 is a compact and rugged digital video recorders(DVRs) especially designed for covert video surveillance applications. FlashBack-2 utilises broadcast standard MPEG-2 video compression to record high quality real-time video and audio to one or two Compact Flash (CF) memory cards. Once a recording has been made, the flash cards may be removed and immediately viewed on a hardware CF media player or a PC. As FlashBack-2 files are fully MPEG-2 compliant, standard applications may be used to view and archive recordings to disk or DVD.
FlashBack-2 Single and Dual Covert Video Recorders
This compact and rugged recorder is DC powered and has stereo audio inputs at microphone or line level. FlashBack-2 dual offers two Compact Flash card slots, doubling the record time and allowing for the "hot swapping" of cards. The system is easily configured for video quality, audio and triggered recording via its RS232 port and a PC application.
Housed in small rugged metal enclosures, FlashBack-2 is ideal for covert installations. Furthermore, it contains no moving parts so recording in harsh environments, with continual shock and vibration over extended temperatures (-10 to +60°C) is now possible.
With its excellent video performance, ease of playback, compact size and rugged construction FlashBack-2 is the ideal solution for covert and body-worn video recording applications.
