The latest portable digital video recorder (PVR) addition to the Eagle CCTV stable is the E-M5DVR. What separates this recorder from the rest of the PVRs on the market is its miniature size and high quality recording.
Extremely compact, the E-M5DVR has an aluminium-mag-alloy metal case and has been built to withstand the ruggedness required by investigators and/or users of such recorders. Ideal for body-worn applications, the E-M5DVR with battery, SD card and screen is slightly smaller than a standard packet of cigarettes. It comes included with a belt-worn carry case.
The unit is configured by an on-screen-display with IR remote control and has a single button for easy recording activation. With the single button activation, use of the recorder by non-technical operators is made easier.
LED indicators notify the operator of recording having started. On a 1 GB SD card and the PVR set on D1 resolution, the E-M5DVR can record for ±70 minutes. Recordings can be played back via the AV output to a standard monitor or VCR. Alternatively video clips can be exported to a PC via the USB port.
These are in a standard .AVI format and can be played back using standard video for windows players.
As the E-M5DVR has been specially designed for surveillance applications not simply as a multimedia recorder, it has many special features. One of the main faults with other PVRs is when the PVRs battery runs out, then the unit switches off and the file in many cases becomes corrupted.
