Camera Selection

While there are push button controls on the front for selecting a camera, you can externalize the switching function through connection on the rear panel.  This allows for remote control over the output camera.  To automate the camera switching via GPS or timer, you can do this as a program on an SD card.  This will also play narrations and soundtracks if you would like.  Ability to take in external audio (headsets or microphone) and mix it with mp3 audio is a great way to edit video while recording.

Seamless Switching

When cycling through the cameras, you will not drop any frames with the Rugged Video Commander DVR.  With the reclocking feature, the signal integrity is not sacrificed.  There are many additional features of the 4×1 that may suit your needs, click the “Request Info” tab to ask specific questions about the product.

The RV 4×1 Video Switcher can come as a “BASE” unit if you have cameras to input or it can come as a “PLUS” system with equivalent number of cameras, cabling, and mounts.  This RV 4×1 is commonly paired with the Commander Recorder for tour operations.  The system can be paired with the Crusader Recorder as well but this combination is offered in one enclosure as the TourMaster.

Switching Cameras

Using the four push buttons on the front of the unit, a specific camera can be selected and will then be fed through the output connection.  There are also ways to connect to the unit with a wired switch to control the camera selection.  Output can go to an HD screen and/or an HD recorder.
