Rugged Video Releases Flight Tour Video System

The RV-sFOUR is the only system to offer a completely automated record, and inflight editing process. Helicopter tours can expect to increase revenues substantially by raising per caps by $17.50.
MILWAUKEE - July 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Rugged Video of Mequon, WI is proud to announce the release the new RV-sFOUR video recorder, designed specifically for flight tours.  The RV-sFOUR airborne recorder is the centerpiece of a complete system for capturing video onboard flight tours and distributing the video experience to customers.  The RV-sFOUR is designed to increase operator revenues with a low cost to own and high sell-through rates.  Systems are configurable for nearly any operation with manual or completely automatic operation.

The RV-sFOUR is a high definition video recorder that accepts up to four high definition cameras and seamlessly switches between cameras to create a professional, edited video while in flight.  Systems offer a variety of airborne HD cameras to be mounted in the cockpit or on exterior of the aircraft.  The RV-sFOUR can be connected to the Commander Controller to control cameras switching based on a timer, GPS waypoints, and manual control.  The Commander Controller also adds the ability to play audio files on the recording and/or through passenger headsets based on manual control or GPS waypoint.  Recording can be automatically started and finished upon takeoff and landing, resulting in less pilot distraction.

Video is recorded to a USB flash drive in a universal format that can be sold directly to customers.  Systems have optional USB duplicators that can create multiple copies within a couple minutes of landing.  Research has shown that 80% of customers prefer a digital copy format over a DVD, resulting in typical sell-through rates of 70-80%.  With an average sales price between $30-60, operators typically see a pre-cap increase of $17.50.    Increased revenues from video sales range from $44,000/yr for operators with attendance around 2500/yr, up to $350,000/yr for larger operators that see 20,000/yr in attendance.
