Tough Enough for the Best
The PDR100 is the core of the ChaseCam video acquisition system. This rugged, solid-state Personal Digital Recorder is used in Access Centers for ENG and Studios as a primary record device. Records direct to MPEGII ...after your shoot, drag n drop right to your server. No More Encoding!

Developed for NASCAR, Formula 1 Racing, Off-Road Trophy Trucks, Motorcycles, Shydiving and countless other forms of sport and competition. It's even been worn by soldiers in battle!

New Feature: AUTO-RECORD!
Developed for the SPEED World Challenge series, we've utilized our new Supercaps capacitors and our popular G-Force Module to automatically record an entire weekend of racing, without pushing a button! Here's how it works:
1) The PDR100 will power on as soon as it receives power.
2) The G-Force Module will trigger the PDR100 to begin recording once it senses vehicle motion. You set the sensitivity.
3) The G-Force Module will trigger the PDR100 to stop recording after it senses no motion for a period of time (user set).
4) The Supercaps will power down the PDR100 approx 5 seconds after wired power is terminated.
Auto-Record is now standard on all PDR-100s.
