Solid State Video Recorders for Onboard Cameras and Helmet Cams


4Kam DVR - Solid State Video Recorders



Although 4Kam first started working with cameras it soon became apparent that the recording device was just as important. If you're using a mini bullet camera of any description you'll need a recording device with analogue input (AV-IN) to record the footage.



What's bad?

There are a number of off-the-shelf camcorders that have AV-IN functionality but they are often bulky and heavy. If you're doing an activity which is likely to subject your equipment to vibration you may over time encounter reliability problems with a camcorder.


Another mechanical device which has moving parts is a hard drive recorder. This works just the same as the hard drive in your PC. If you pick up your PC and shake it, chances are it will crash. Hard drive recorders will handle vibration and shocks badly too, so if your sport involves jumps, acceleration or anything else likely to spill your cup of coco they are best avoided.



What's good?

After hearing (and experiencing) problems with the above for many years we now only recommend 'solid state' recording devices. Solid state means no moving parts and therefore no problems with shocks or vibration. You can even play 'catch' with our DVR's and they'll keep on recording!


All our DVR's are solid state and have 'flash' memory built in, this means you can record directly onto the DVR itself. You can also expand its recording capabilities using solid state memory cards. Each DVR we sell also has a built in monitor, this can help you setup the camera correctly and to see what you're filming. You can also use it to watch back the footage you've just recorded while still on location. Once home you can connect the DVR to your TV and watch your videos on the big screen or connect to your computer. Doing this it will appear as an external hard drive, so simply drag and drop the videos onto your PC. You can then watch them back, edit them and upload them to your website or YouTube!
