Techfury Video Systems is proud to introduce our new Four Channel High-Definition Digital Video Recording System with GPS and Trigger Overlays. The TF-TDR4-HD is our next generation of Tactical Data Recorders specifically designed for Aerial, Ground and Naval applications including Aerial Refueling, Mission Recording / Debriefing, Pilot Training, SAR, Military / Defense and LEA’s. The TF-TDR4-HD is capable of recording FOUR independent HD-SDI, 3G-SDI or SDI signals (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-TDR4-HD can accept a single (or four independent audio inputs) stereo audio input (G.711 / AAC) from an audio panel or headset which is synchronized with video during playback. Overlay GPS data such as coordinates, speed, altitude, bearing, time and date anywhere on the video and/or view this data in .KML format using any third-party software such as Google Earth.
Media Storage - Internal & External
Unlike other DVR's on the market, the TF-TDR4-HD has a unique video back-up system which allows the user to simultaneously record all video and audio files to an internal storage drive and external USB drives for each channel. The internal memory drive can be used as a secure redundant media storage for all recorded files while the removable external USB drive can be used for day-to-day operations. The internal memory drive comes with 32GB 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 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.
GPS Overlay Parameters:
The TF-TDR4-HD offers a single GPS input as a standard option which allows for serial GPS data to be overlaid directly on all video stream. The GPS data is also stored in .KML and .GPX file formats along with the video files. A user can choose to overlay GPS parameters such as coordinates, speed, altitude, bearing, time/date anywhere on the video frame for each channel. With the many different overlay’s, the GPS option allows for Geotagging which syncs geographical data such as latitude, longitude, time, date, video time code, altitude, bearing to the video. This process creates geotagged files (KML and GPX files) to the internal and external drives which is synchronized to the video and can be viewed in Google Earth (or any other geotagging software) to see exact locations where the video was recorded.
No Video Loss or Corrupted/Temp. Files
The TF-TDR4-HD 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 due to power or video interuptions. Unlike other DVR’s on the market, the TDR4-HD will save all recorded files regardless of power and video interruptions 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.
Live Triggers and Flag Overlays
The TF-TDR4-HD offers user defined graphic overlays which can be triggered during live recordings. During recordings, if a Flag Trigger is activated, a custom user defined graphic will appear as an overlay on the video. During playback, the custom user defined graphic will appear on the video feed whenever the trigger was activated by the user and will remain visible for 5 seconds alerting the user. This functionality is extremely useful when you do not wish to use geospatial software to identify a point in time related to the recorded video. A JPEG can also be created for a point of interest during live recordings which will appear as a .jpeg file along with the recorded video files to the internal memory and external drives.
Built to Last!
The TF-TDR4-HD uses our new Ruggedized Modular Enclosure specifically designed easy installation and operation in any environment and/or application. Using standard BNC connectors for video I/O and rugged MIL-SPEC 38999 Series connectors for audio, communications, GPS, and power the TF-TDR4-HD 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 the built-in J-hooks on the front panel or multiple mounting points on the top and bottom of the enclosure for quick and simple installation. Custom mounting points can be added upon request.
