“I need video, where do I begin?”000_1391

Below is a form that we provide our customers so they can see what options are available and they can select what they would like.  Fill out the form and hit submit for a custom tailored quote.


In our attempt to provide our customer with nearly endless combinations of capturing video, we realize that it got confusing as well.  What we have done here is made a list of all the basic options/add-ons available and by using the pull downs and empty boxes, you can build your ideal system.  We are still here for any questions you have and can help build one over the phone as well.  Otherwise, fill out the sheet below and hit submit.  You will get a reply from a Rugged Video Rep with follow up questions and a rough quote.  We look forward to working with you!


Build a System

  • Users can choose how many cameras they would like to record.
  • There are a variety of ways to do recordings, from recording all cameras individually on their own media, to having 4 cameras on one screen as a Picture-in-Picture recording. We also have a set up commonly used in flight tours that is 4 cameras on a switcher that will seamlessly switch between cameras giving you one video file at the end with the cameras that you switched to while recording. It is a way of editing while recording to cut down on editing after the recording.
  • Using our Commander Controller product, the way that the camera switch can be controlled via GPS: heading or location. It can also play music at certain points, play programmed narration, start and stop recording. Click on Commander Controller under Products to learn more about this feature.
  • We have different types of cameras available for our systems and this gives us an idea of how you will be using the cameras. We have waterproof versions that will be used for all exterior applications.
  • With a variety of ways to view the cameras, select which one will best fit your workflow and we can make it work for you.
  • With a variety of ways to record audio, we can combine options as you see listed or record just specific narrations using a Push to Talk unit that plugs into your headset. For permanent installations, we recommend hard wiring to the audio panel for a clean install.
  • Using an existing GPS or our GPS antenna, you can overlay GPS data on the video as well as save a GPX and KML file for pulling up the flight path in Google Earth or other third party software.
  • There are a few ways that the unit can start and stop recording. If you would like to rail mount the unit in the dash, we have dzus mount options. Please add this request in the "Additional notes/requests" below.
  • There are a few ways to power the unit and the unit will supply the needed power to the cameras as well. Robust internal power supplies will take in the raw aircraft power and send the proper voltage to the recorder and cameras.
