VRDV-5004 HD DZUS CompactFlash

The VRDV-5004-01 is a compact, lightweight, high definition video recorder. It features a unique CompactFlash-based design with playback during flight. The VRDV-5004-01 video recorder offers a solid-state design, providing superior performance in extreme temperatures and high g forces, constructed in rugged all aluminum with simplified DZUS fasteners.

This variant of the HD recorder has the exact same functions as the original VRDV-5002 model, but incorporates a shorter chassis for installations where depth behind the console is limited.

Operating with low power demands, the VRDV-5004 video recorder is an efficient, well equipped solution that features HD/SD-SDI inputs and outputs. It is designed to record to affordable CompactFlash cards and provides file-based, tapeless workflow and storage.

The system's packaging is interchangeable with the VRDV-3000 series recorders. Without the need to rewind, the VRDV-5004 provides instant playback of any clip. It facilitates easy file transfer to Blu-Ray Disc (BD) for playback on any media PC, and it offers low bit rate, high compression, minimizing mission storage requirements. The system is fitted with a professional CODEC to produce the highest quality video compression.

Audio capabilities of the VRDV-5004 include 24-bit/48K audio with embedded or analog inputs and line level output. The analog audio input is available with one balanced mic, two unbalanced mics or two (consumer) line levels. Comprehensive non-linear editing (NLE) is supported by professional editors including Final Cut Pro, Avid, Edius, Vegas and Premiere. 

Recording is done with up to two CompactFlash cards. When one card fills, the recording seamlessly switches to the second card.  Recording bit rates are set at the factory with the default setting at 35 MB/s. Recording time varies by bit rates, from 40 minutes for one 32 GB card at 100 MB/s to 210 minutes for one 32 GB card at 19 MB/s.

The system comes with free PC playback software. The Lexar FW-800 USB CF high-speed reader is recommended. The system performs at download speeds of 3x to 6x with metadata support.
