The Mini DVR Pro features video capture and playback at 60 frames per second, resolution greater than 550 lines at 4:1 compression, user-selectable compression ratios ranging from 4:1 to 20:1, and recording times averaging from 4 to 20 minutes per gigabyte.

With control options including loop record, external triggers, and pre-event recording, the Mini DVR Pro will allow users to capture the whole story.
