The EdgeDVR-1HD-2SD is a dual channel digital video recorder (DVR) which can record 1 channel of high definition (HD) video and 1 channels of standard definition (SD) video or 2 channels of SD video. The EdgeDVR is primarily for use in the offshore oil and gas subsea market. It is generally used for daily ROV operations, both eyeball and work class or diving. Being dual channel it can display and record up to two video channels simultaneously, which is ideal for multiple divers or an ROV with multiple cameras and sonar. The EdgeDVR can be switched between 1 or 2 channel mode. It can be setup with the either channel being HD. The EdgeDVR includes a built in video switcher, so the operator can easily switch between video inputs when in 1 or 2 channel recording mode. Switching can even be done within a video recording.
There is a dual channel black box recorder integrated into the EdgeDVR, so whenever a dive is open, all channels of video are recording be they HD or SD. Taking multi-channel videos, video clips or stills is extremely easy and the whole user interface is designed for ease of use by the operator by experienced ROV pilots and 3.4u inspectors.
The EdgeDVR includes a HD and SD drag and drop dual independent channel overlay and can take in up to 4 survey or serial data feeds. Built in eventing and automatic generation of dive, anomaly, video and photo logs.
