AfterBurner-mini is a small rugged 24-hour time-lapse hard disk DVD recorder that offers all the essential features and functions of AfterBurner without the integral burner.
Designed specifically for police video surveillance operations, AfterBurner-mini is easily configured for video quality and record rate via its front panel LCD. Once set up and installed AfterBurner-mini will continually record to hard disk with the option of stopping or overwriting when the disk is full. In 24-hour mode, this means the unit can be left unattended for up to 24 days before the oldest video is overwritten.
This small deployable unit is ideal for when concealment space is limited and provides extra security because the recorded data can only be extracted when connected to a MultiBurner back at base.
AfterBurner-mini is easy to install and is supplied with a mains PSU or can be battery powered, requiring less than 700mA at 12V DC when recording.
|Typical System Diagram|
AfterBurner-mini operates by converting the video input to a digital uncompressed data stream. At this point, on screen display text is added to the video. Video is processed for time-lapse recording in a temporary video buffer before being MPEG-2 encoded and stored on a local hard disk. Recordings are then formatted for capability with standard DVD players.
Recording to hard-disk allows the re-burn of disks in the event of a power failure or malfunction and to provide duplicates when required. It is also possible to leave the unit unattended for a week or more, collecting data that can be downloaded using MultiBurner at a later date.
When AfterBurner-mini is connected to MultiBurner it will automatically burn evidence to DVD.
