AfterBurner-2 DVD Video Recorder


Building on the world-wide success of the award-winning AfterBurner, AfterBurner-2 retains all the capabilities, ease of use and reliability of its predecessor with the addition of some major new features including SHA-2 hash coding. .

The video input now includes a programmable video quad, allowing up to 4 cameras to be recorded to DVD. Each input features motion detection, which can be set to a zone of interest with selectable sensitivity.


AfterBurner-2 also includes an RJ45 Ethernet port for remote control and configuration, recorded file download and taking snap-shots of the video input to ensure the cameras are functioning at the remote site. A simple webpage interface provides basic remote control and monitoring and there is a new PC application for more complex configuration..

AfterBurner-2 has an internal (or optionally removable) SATA 2.5" hard drive which can address disks of up to 1 TB. This provides potentially months of video and audio recording making AfterBurner-2 the ideal video surveillance tool.
