Small form factor, lightweight, ruggedized Dual-channel HD/SD Video Recorder that supports both digital (HDSDI) and analog (RGB, S-Video and composite) video.


VRDV7000 is the latest member of Curtiss-Wright’s family of small form factor, lightweight, rugged digital video recorders. These Dual Channel HD Video Recorder combines and enhances many of the features offered in other members of the family, including support for both digital (HDSDI) and analog (RGB, S-Video and composite) video.

VRDV7000 uses MPEG-4 Part 10 (Advanced Video Coding)/H.264 video compression technology to provide the highest quality video recording at a bit rate that allows many hours of recorded video to be stored on a Secure Digital (SD) card or a USB Flash drive. A standard non-proprietary file format is used so that recordings may be played back on standard media player software without any further processing required.
