2 “STING II” Short Description
2.1
Definition and introduction
STING II is a self contained, rugged, modular, digital video/audio recording system, capable of recording
video and audio in MPEG-2 format that includes extensive wired and wireless communication options
including Ethernet interface for internet access, direct connectivity to any media (including Monitor/
television), a built-in video motion detector, file encryption, time lapse recording mode, time/date stamp,
watermark, and recording option on external hard drives,
Recordings are stored on Compact Flash plug-in cards and can then be played back using the STING II,
downloaded from the Microdrive to a personal computer or accessed remotely. Recording time may vastly
extended by connecting an external USB hard disk and thus allowing continues recording of full D1 video
and audio for more than 1 month. The system also allows the user connect a wireless video transmitter
hence enables viewing of live feeds.
The STING II includes an internal Li-ion battery and Time/Date stamp on the recorded video.
The device features a high quality MPEG2 video compression in full D1 quality (720x576 or 720x480) with
up to 8Mbps data rate – for unsurpassed visual integrity
Once operation is on its way - the STING II uses discrete vibrations and LED indications (with configurable
visibility), to notify the user of changing conditions such as battery and memory usage warnings.
STING II is designed mainly for extreme environments and can be used for police, military, firefighting and
other extreme work, for portable video/audio recording featuring the highest quality available.
The STING II internal battery powers more than 2 hours of continues video recording - allowing for an
uninterrupted covert operation. In addition, the device includes external connector for a battery pack
extension or connecting DC to charge the internal battery hence continues operation of more than 2 days
can be accomplished.
It includes the ability to:

Adjust the cradle to different helmet sizes using a modular, clip-on cradle system (adjustment set
not included)

Encrypt audio/video, video only, or audio files

Capture still images (in jpeg format)

Trigger recording sessions based on video motion detection algorithm

Capture individual jpeg images from streaming video files

Authenticate that recording sessions have not been edited or tampered using embedded
watermark functionality

Extend continuous recording time to more than 1month by recording also on external USB disk

Connect to the internet/intranet to configure the DVR, upload the recorded data or even real-time
stream the video from remote location

Connect an external WiFi card to allow wireless interface similar to the Ethernet
Features summary
1. State of the art MPEG2 video compression in full D1 resolution for high quality video recording in
variable compression bit rate supporting rates of up to 8 Mbit/Sec
2. High quality audio encoder using powerful MPEG1 Layer 2
3. Composite video input with support for PAL and NTSC
4. Composite video output, which can be switched between live monitor view and recorded playback
5. Media files can also be viewed on a PC - using standard media players such as Windows Media Player
6. Water mark: Media files have a signature to verify that the video has not been tampered
7. Encryption: Media files can be optionally encrypted using a AES 128 bit encryption, with a usergenerated software key. These files are viewable onboard with a password, or with a PC player after
they have been decrypted
8. Recording in time lapse mode
9. Internal Lion rechargeable battery, which allows the Sting II to operates for approximately two hours
10. Video is embedded with a visible time/date, stamp in a configurable location
11. Hi Speed USB2.0 used for multiple functionalities placed at a hidden location used for Mass-Storage
device when connected to a PC (to upload recorded files and configure the system)
12. Ethernet 10/100 port supports IP, TCP, UDP, DHCP protocols. Supports Video streaming and file
transfer through a web interface from a remote PC
13. Connection to wired Remote-Control with built-in vibrator for alarms and indication to user with
FailSafe memory and battery warning. The Failsafe operation is also indicated to the user by an on
board LEDs (their visibility is configurable)
14. Optional Video transition of live action to remote location
15. Optional external WiFi adaptor PCMCIA card to allow wireless interface similar to the Ethernet
16. Optional GPS card can be connected to a PCMCIA interface to allow GPS time and position stamp on
the recoded video
