SnapStream DVR records 50 channels at once

Posted in DVR by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

SnapStream has a new DVR that can record up to 50 channels simultaneously onto 100TB worth of storage capacity. SnapStream is also writing the software that controls it. Think about that. This is equal to 326 Tivo Premier boxes all in a closet-sized box.

There’s just a single coax cable as the input in back. SnapStream has tools to search the content. Their system is already used by TV production teams that need to find recent footage quickly. Pretty amazing and not for the likes of you and I.

Tomato T99 Mini DVR, MP4 Player

Posted in DVR by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2010

The oddly named Tomato T99 is neither red, nor in the fruits and vegetables section of your local supermarket. But it is an interesting device that features digital video recording along with a 1.3-megapixel camera which allows you to use it as a monitoring or spy tool.

It also sports shadow-control to save battery life, where it shuts down the camera automatically when it doesn’t detect anyone there. It’s a feature that will save valuable storage space as well, so that you get all of the important moments that you do want.

Porta System’s Touch1600 with Touch Screen DVRHere’s a first. The Touch1600 DVR from Porta System is the first security system of its kind that features a 17″ touchscreen display. It comes in your choice of 500GB or 1TB storage capacities. The network-enabled system features remote access support, camera motion detection and object movement detection.

A touchscreen on this kind of device is pretty useful since you will want the freedom to playback video in a variety of ways, anytime you want. We don’t have any info on price just yet, but we have our fingers crossed that you won’t be paying a super premium for that touch screen.

Moxi HD DVR gets 6TB drive supportThe Moxi HD now has a media extender box and a new software update, which allows the Moxi to offload video to Lacie’s 6TB drive clusters. That translates to over 1000 hours of HDTV. The Moxi Mate is a small $399 ($199 if purchased in a bundle or by an existing Moxi HD customer) satellite box that plays back recordings from your Moxi HD over your home network.

It’s low on features and has no support for more than one Moxi Mate at a time, but at least you can stream your Moxi library around the house if that’s what you want.

Gefen brings PVRs to CES

Posted in CES 2008,DVR,Gefen by Nino Marchetti on January 5th, 2008

gefen-pvr.jpgGefen announced to the press via an email a few days ago its upcoming CES line up. Amongst the cables, switchers and other line items we noted something of interest: two personal video recorders. No specific release date was given for the items, now available for pre-order, but we did note there’s a hard drive based PVR for around $1,000 and a USB memory device based one for around $650.

Gefen’s HD-PVR, which will also connect to removable USB memory devices for storage, has a built-in 80GB hard drive. With this you connect the PVR to an HDMI enabled display, select the video source and function you want from the source inputs and off you go recording. Recording can be done up to 1080i and there’s an on-screen menu for control options. Through this PVR you can also scan storage devices for other types of media to interact with.

Credit card sized digital voice recorder

Posted in DVR,USB by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2008

Credit card sized digital voice recorder

This credit card sized digital voice recorder is not only anorexic, but white as a hospital. A splash of color wouldn’t have killed them, would it? Anyway, despite it’s ultra white sanitary look, it’s pretty easy on the eyes. In fact, it reminds me of why I love Nurses, all dressed in white, nice curves…

It measures just 6.5 millimeters thick and has 1GB of built-in storage, a handy flip-out USB connector, and flush-mounted controls. But it’s not just a Voice Recorder, it can also be used as an MP3 player and USB flash drive. The recording is in high quality WAV file format and files can be handled easily, just copy or delete like a typical USB storage device. Of course the advantage with this device is that you can take it just about anywhere. Pick one up for $69.99.
