Synchronous 4channels video and data recording.

The video and analog data is easy to verify using the built-in LCD monitor.

Visual Data Recorder AQ-VU is a unification of a visual and data measurement.

Visual Data Recorder



AQ-VU is a visual data recorder with 4 channels video and analog signals that can be synchronously recorded and played back. Video and data can be verified or played-back without a PC using a LCD monitor and stand-alone AQ-VU. AQ-VU is a remarkable data recorder that can visually confirm a physical event without connecting to a PC.

Can be used as normal recorder

AQ-VU as stand-alone unit

  • AQ-VU records Video signals along with Analogue data.
  • Small footprint allows use in confined spaces.

Synchronised recording and reproduction

4 channels Video plus Analogue data.

  • Video signals and analogue signals are synchronised in frame.
  • Video signals and analogue signals can be seen together.

Zero accumulated delay errors

Video and analogue signals are recorded as a set frame, preventing accumulated delay errors.

No file error in case of interruption of power supply

AQ-VU uses its HDD as a linear device (like a tape), any data which was recorded before interruption of power source, can be reproduced.

Small and lightweight

Camera power derived from AQ-VU

  • Small, portable, compact package allows easy use of AQ-VU in the field (2.3kg).
  • Low Power requirements, can be run from both DC 10-17 volts and AC power sources.
  • Power for camera also supplied from AQ-VU, allowing it to be used in mobile environments, vehicles, trains, etc.


5 hours or continuous record function

5 hours recording

  • Record duration of 5 hours available utilising exclusive 40 GB HDD pack.
  • Endless recording mode also available, allowing use for monitoring, surveillance etc.


Searching and edit capabilities

Synchronised reproducing on PC

  • Connecting HDD pack to PC, video and analogue signals can be reproduced with synchronised using AQView software.
  • Easy search and edit facilities using AQView software.



AQ-VU External level trigger functionExternal level trigger function

Trigger function record, with level trigger

    • Level trigger, and Pre-trigger functions allow recording of conditions before the trigger point was achieved.
  • Reduced time to locate data.



32ch Synchronisation with LX-100 Series recorders

  • AQ-VU can be synchronised with other data recorders using the sync signal.
  • Controlling AQ-VU is also available using sync. signal.
  • Sync. signal


AQ-VU AQ-Net Network Monitoring

Network Monitoring

Possible to control and monitor via Ethernet

Using AQ-Net which is provided as an option, video and analog signals can be monitored via Ethernet.

AQ-VU can be fully controlled via network. Also downloading data files is possible.

Recoding and downloading are independent, so downloading data has no effect on recording.

*Downloading data file takes time longer than recording time.

*Video update timing is adjusted automatically.
