    • Overview:

      The TF-TDR1-HDX is the next generation of Tactical Data Recorders designed for all applications for land, air and sea operations. The TF-TDR1-HDX is capable of recording one independent HD-SDI signal (H.264 AVC Profile 4.2 / Motion JPEG) from a variety of video input options ranging from FLIR, Westcam, Imperx CMOS Cameras, Marshall Industries, HD Block Cameras and/or any SDI camera on the market. In addition to high definition video, the TF-TDR1-HDX can accept a single stereo audio input (G.711 / AAC) from an audio panel or headset which is synchronized with video during playback.

      The TF-TDR1-HDX is capable of live streaming via SRT / RTSP / RTMP / HLS / UDP-TS / Onvif.

    • Graphic & GPS Overlay Placement System

      The TF-TDR1-HDX is capable of overlaying multiple user defined text fields and dynamic graphic widgets such as:

      • Quadrature or Simple Counters
      • Analog Data
      • XY Measurements
      • Targeting Reticles
      • Plane Situation Awareness
      • ROV Situation Awareness
      • Sliders
      • Compass
      • Display Time, Date, Text, Images, GPS Data, NMEA Data, CSV Sentenses, Unsupported NMEA Sentences
      • Append Milisecond Counter to IRIG, GPS, RTC time
    • Dual Serial / GPS Inputs

      The TF-TDR1-HDX is capable of dual GPS inputs for use with devices like IMU's and multi coordinate targeting systems. This feature allows the user to overlay NMEA 0183 standard and non-standard sentences from two indepentant GPS sensors. The first GPS input can be used to set an intial  geospatial positional reference while the second GPS input can be configured to follow a camera mounted IMU's position relative to the target. This allows the output to display accurate coordinates of the viewed target. 

      Alternativly, the TF-TDR1-HDX can be used to input dual serial data streams from any type of sensors capable of delivering RS232 data. For example, sensors such as range finders, pressure gauges, temperatue sensors, fuel sensor, speed sensor, engine monitoring sensors, etc.

    • Media Storage – Internal and External

      Unlike other DVR's on the market, the TF-TDR1-HDX has a unique video back up system which allows the user to record the same video and audio files to multiple external USB drives and to an internal storage drive simultaneously. The internal memory drive can be used as a secure redundant media storage for all recorded files while the removable dual external USB drives can be used for day-to-day operations. The internal memory drive comes with 16GB of storage as standard but can be increased upon request up to 1TB.  When the media drives are full, they will record over the first file on the drive preserving the most current files as an option. As an added security feature, the internal memory can only be accessed via the password protected GUI by connecting the DVR to a computer. An external USB drive is not required to make a recording.

    • MultiLink

      The TF-TDR1-HDX has the capability of recording multiple channels using a single record switch, audio, GPS or data inputs. Stack up to (8) TF-TDR1-HDX DVR’s and control them with a single external switch for synchronized recordings of all channels. When stacking the DVR’s in a multi-channel configuration, only one audio input is required which is paralleled throughout the system. This is an excellent option for recording video inputs from multiple sources, providing synchronized recordings from a variety of angles. All channels are recorded to their individual external media drives and internal memory making viewing and searching through many video files simpler and more efficient.

    • Built to Last

      The TF-TDR1-HDX is designed for easy installation and operation in any environment and/or application. Using standard BNC connectors for video I/O and rugged LEMO Push-pull style locking connectors for audio and communications, the TF-TDR1-HDX is made to be a simple plug and play system. A standard 3-pin MIL-SPEC locking power connector is used to supply the system with 12-36VDC power which prevents any power loss under heavy vibrations. Use our TF-PSU power supply as a clean and efficient power source to supply the complete system with power for the most reliable results.

    • No video loss or corrupted files

      The TF-TDR1-HDX has a built-in robust video loss prevention system which will save all recorded files to the internal and external media drives without any chance of file corruption or video loss. Unlike other DVR’s on the market, the TF-TDR1-HDX will save all recorded files regardless of power and video interruption without creating temporary or corrupted files. This feature is specifically designed to prevent video files from being lost due to a power or video interruption during flights. In an event of power or video loss to the DVR, the current recorded file is closed immediately and saved to the internal memory and external media drives. Once power or video is restored to the DVR, it will automatically continue recording to a separate file.
