A 250GB drive is supplied as standard with disk capacities of up to 1 TB supported, allowing up to 26 days of high quality real-time recording which can be extended to several weeks in time-lapse mode.

The hard disk is installed in a removable Addonics

The Addonics Jupiter caddy system is readily available from a number of suppliers so installing new hard disks is simple and very cost effective.


AfterBurner Removable records in industry standard MPEG-2 format providing excellent picture quality combined with ease of playback and editing. The files are compatible with Ovation’s DVD Explorer review software which is available free to all AfterBurner users.

AfterBurner Removable retains all the key features of the standard, Queen’s Award-winning AfterBurner including real-time and time-lapse record modes, internal timers, external triggers and low DC power consumption.
