Yes! The geoDSR can also be configured on the rugged tablet PC.
In general, No. The included tablet model has been carefully selected, configured and tested in house to meet the specialized geoDVR software/hardware operating requirements. However we do understand there are some situations such as corporate IT requirements to use company-issued devices, in which case Remote Geo professionals will coordinate with the organization’s IT and cyber security teams on an appropriate deployment plan.
This will really depend on what GPS device you choose to use with the geoDVR. The geoDVR Mini ships with a Garmin 18x receiver and the geoDVR Gen3 features an internal GPS receiver and with that you can probably expect around 3 meter accuracy. The geoDVR Mini can connect to most NMEA-compliant GPS devices so if you have a high-end survey grade GPS unit with differential correction you can use that. In airborne applications, when connected to a compatible gimbal camera with the correct metadata parameters, the geoDVR Mini also can geotag where the camera is looking at the ground with great accuracy to display the “camera target footprint” on the map, or CTF as we call it.
Right now we offer the geoDVR Mini in a single-channel HD (high-definition) version.
- Scenery (A complex scene of a city with many different colors can be compressed less than a pure blue sky for example)
- Encoding quality (default is 'High' on the geoDVR)
- Resolution, Framerate, and Color Depth
- Number of channels you are recording
- Codec (geoDVR uses H.264)
- Camera Sensor/quality
