Choosing Video Field Recorders
Video field recorders are available in lightweight, portable options so that you can store or stream live video from anywhere you go. Options like POVCAMs provide you with video and audio recording capability that's up-close and personal. There are also HD video recorders that record from disk, memory card, and cameras and produce quality, high-resolution feedback.
Video Field Recorders and Audio Field Recorders
You can choose one or the other, depending on your needs in the field. Portable video recorders come with HD and 4K functionality and can store to HDD, SDD, or DVR drives. Audio field recorders produce high-quality files when stored on portable RAID recorders.
What's a Digital Video Field Recorder?
Digital video recorders (DVRs) are external storage devices that work like hard drives. You can usually connect DVRs to wireless home networks to access them remotely and record from anywhere. From a live video perspective, DVRs for the field allow you to sync with wireless video equipment and record events in real time. Some DVRs offer expandable storage options so you can upgrade space without having to delete videos.
Protecting External Video Recorders
Equipment like 4K video recorders and other related devices have components inside that are much like the ones inside computers—some components are very sensitive to shock and the elements. While chassis are durable, external conditions like dust, moisture, and falls can damage professional video recorder components. Using accessories like professional video solid state recorder mounting brackets can help prevent equipment from damage in the field, giving them solid frames or cages. Additional useful accessories for protection include replacement transfer cables, tripods, carrying cases, and shock mounts.
