VRDV7000 is the latest member of Curtiss-Wright’s family of small form factor, lightweight, ruggedized digital video recorders. The 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.

Flexible Video Interfaces

VRDV7000 supports the HD-SDI digital video standard, with two SD-SDI/ HD-SDI/3G-SDI video inputs and two outputs. Each input supports video resolutions up to 1080p60. Recording is at a maximum frame rate of 30 fps for each channel. Furthermore, VRDV7000 supports recording of metadata and audio present on the HD-SDI video inputs.

VRDV7000 also makes provisions for recording of analog video to support existing or legacy equipment. VGA or RGB video (sync on green or separate syncs) may be connected to the recorder up to a resolution of 1600x1200 or 1920x1080. The VRDV7000 also supports STANAG-3350A/B/C video formats. This is complemented by two channels of standard definition video (either single-wire CVBS or S-Video) supporting PAL and NTSC. These video inputs may be used in different combinations to a maximum of two recorded channels; for example, two HD channels (whether from HD-SDI or RGB), or one HD channel and one SD channel.
