Santa Fe Springs, Calif. – (July 8, 2008) – Swann Communications, the global leader in security monitoring solutions, is proud to announce their latest innovation in covert surveillance, the FlashlightDVRTM. This all-in-one portable solution combines a high-powered, working flashlight, color camera and DVR in a durable aluminium alloy case. Easy, one touch operation coupled with a robust feature set makes the portable FlashlightDVRTM an invaluable tool for covert surveillance.

The FlashlightDVRTM can record video either internally, via 128MB flash memory, or externally through an SD card (up to 2GB, sold separately). The DVR utilizes the latest MPEG4 technology which allows for increased video storage capacity. Recorded content can easily be viewed or transferred to a computer by using the flashlight’s USB port. The FlashlightDVRTM allows users to record in low light conditions with Night Vision and record audio in any situation via a built-in microphone.

All of the controls are centralized in the main control area located on the top of the flashlight. Operation is made easy through one touch controls and an easy-to-use menu that is displayed on a LCD screen. The FlashlightDVRTM is powered by either 3 C size batteries or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries; the flashlight features a built-in Ni-MH charger with a 12V input.
