The Digital Eyewitness ION Eclipse digital in-car video system from Kustom Signals has an open architecture design which allows maximum flexibility to customize the system initially and upgrade in the future. The ION Eclipse includes three user-selectable, industry standard compression schemes -- MPEG1, MPEG2 and MPEG4 -- with a choice of recording rates for each compression standard. It offers multiple file storage options including hard drive, DVD-RAM and Compact Flash, as well as multiple file transfer options, including manual, hard wired and wireless. Officers have the option of using an integrated overhead console with monitor; mounting the monitor and controller separately; or using a mobile computer as the system's controller/monitor. The Digital Eyewitness ION Eclipse includes up to three minutes of pre-event recording. Optional features include ClearComm DSS (a 900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum wireless audio system), crash record activation and GPS.
