For high quality video recordings on the move or wherever space is an issue, Stack’s rugged Solid-State Digital Video Loggers (DVLs) and Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) provide the optimum solution and are specifically designed for use in harsh environments such as shock and vibration over extended temperatures.

Stack's expanded range of Harsh Environment DVLs/DVRs include models to suit most mobile video requirements in markets as diverse as motorsport, industrial applications , broadcasting, defence and even space exploration. There are variants offering up to 4 camera inputs, higher bit-rate options for broadcast quality recordings, completely sealed to IP67, extended operating temperature ranges, and extended recordings capacity.


Rugged and Reliable
Stack's DVLs/DVRs employ broadcast standard MPEG-2 video compression to record high quality real-time video and audio direct to a Compact Flash (CF) card. The card can be removed with ease and played on a PC or laptop using a standard media player application.

Recordings can be archived direct to DVD for playback on either a PC or a DVD player. Stack DVLs/DVRs provide superior high-quality video recording in real time over a wide range of bit rates suitable for different applications - up to 20 Mbps is available, quality equivalent or better than DV tape.

Stack DVLs/DVRs feature a rugged machined aluminium housing specifically designed and manufactured to protect the unit in harsh and extreme environments. The unit is compact and durable with no moving parts (other than the sealed CF card access door), and is capable of operating where normal VCRs or DV recorders are not. Recording in harsh environments, such as continual shock and vibration, and extreme climate conditions is now entirely possible, making it ideal for all demanding recording applications.
