Digital Edge Subsea is now pleased to add another industry first to an expanding product range: the Mobile EdgeDVR Workstation. A great solution for those who have a need for portability or for projects short on space, this portable workstation has 17” integrated triple monitor display units in a small form factor for field deployment. The three screens fold out from the main unit to create a compact system capable of displaying sonar, ROV topside and DVR displays.

It has a total storage capacity of 30 TB, has the same capabilities as the rack mounted system and 4 channel HD recording capability.

The system has 3 removable hard drives which store the survey video and photos. The Windows 10 Pro operating system is stored on a solid state hard drive for increased speed and reliability, with a second solid state hard drive for redundancy. The system is supplied in a custom Pelican case.


Digital Edge offer 3 versions of software (Lite, Edge and Pro) and the Mobile EdgeDVR is available in all 3. In addition, you can create a command and control field deployable computing solution by adding a further mobile display unit of another three 17” screens.

You can be assured of a reliable system, whichever unit you choose. Digital Edge also supply excellent technical support where all systems can be remotely accessed. All units have been designed to be simple to use by personnel of all levels of ability and training is also covered for increased peace of mind.

The 3 levels of software available:

  1. EdgeLite: an entry level unit, suitable for surveys and inspections, where there is no requirement for eventing.
  2. EdgeDVR will is able to record 4 channels of HD simultaneously. It continues to offer the creation of Workpacks and offline editing.
  3. EdgePro has an extended database that allows tasks to be assigned to components under inspection. This allows customers to either create their own Workpacks, or they can be created in-house at Digital Edge. It also provides an automatically generated report to capture inspection results.


All units come with EdgeArchive, a data storage and back-up solution that uses an integral app within Edge architecture, to avoid needing a 3rd party app.

Edge Archive handles the transfer of data from the internal DVR drives to Client storage, either on a NAS a Raid, or a phased delivery to multiple external hard drives.

Being a Native app, the data transfer ensures that the quality of Live recordings are not impacted by a 3rd party program trying to access the same file that the DVR app is currently using.
