Bullet DVR

How it works

Bullet DVR

Setting up a Bullet DVR™ Multi-Cam unit and three cameras is actually pretty simple. In the following example, we’ll show you how it was done on a 2009 Aprilia RSV1000 roadrace bike. First, you’ll want to decide on where each camera will be installed. You can see each mounting location in the picture below, circled in green.

Each Bullet Camera is held in place using our Anti-Vibration camera mount, which sticks to the vehicle using super adhesive Velcro. This mount provides a very safe and secure way to hold the camera. It is made entirely of rubber, and will attenuate all the vibrations and bumps from the racetrack. The cameras can be affixed to the bodywork externally or internally, if you drill a hole to let the camera go through it.

Once all the cameras are in place, route all the wires back to the DVR unit. Use zip ties to make a clean installation and to make sure the cables won’t get pinched or in the way. Do the same for the Infra-red receiver and the optional LANC remote. If needed , we offer many different lengths of cable extensions to suit your application.

Connect each cable to the corresponding jack on the DVR unit. All the cameras use a single cable, which features a quick-connect waterproof plug. The Power cable also uses this very handy plug, and is connected on the other end to the vehicle’s 12VDC battery poles. The whole system is powered directly from the vehicle.

The DVR unit is securely held in place using the supplied Quick-Release bracket. This bracket consists of two plates (top and bottom), which match the grooves on the side of the DVR. The base plate is held to the bodywork using only 4 small rivets, and the top plate clamps down over the DVR and is held by a Quick-Release pin. This allows for a very quick removal of the DVR from the vehicle, leaving only the small base plate attached permanently.

The Bullet DVRT system is now installed and ready for action. You can make final adjustments of the camera positioning and change the many settings parameters, by connecting the A/V OUT cable to an external monitor or TV. The included infra-red remote controller allows you to change views from one camera to the other on the spot, and to change the DVR settings. You may also use the supplied PC configuration software to configure the unit.

When you purchase the Bullet DVR™ Multi-Cam kit, you also receive an evaluation copy of the TrackTimer™ software for racing, an invaluable tool for managing all aspects of your race team using a PC computer. This software allows you to playback your recorded videos and laptimes captured with the Bullet DVR™ unit, as well as maintain a very detailed log of every possible race setup parameter, from suspension settings to gearing and parts inventory, you will be able to keep track of absolutely every little detail. You can still playback your videos without using the TrackTimer™ software, with the included VLC Media Player utility, or Windows media Player.
