Choosing a VDR System

The VDR is a black-colored box for ships that has vital safety information. The device can be used to monitor performance, track the causes of accidents as well as incidents, and train employees. VDRs also allow fleet managers to analyse trends in the performance of a ship or across a fleet, to identify areas to improve. For many years, airlines have used Flight Data Recorders (FDRs), and their analysis has reduced the number of accidents.

The basic structure of a ship’s VDR system is usually two-part: a data acquisition device which collects data from bridge equipment and sensors and an external storage medium which is fixed or float-free. Consilium is a manufacturer of a Type Approved Simplified Video Data Recorder (S-VDR) claims that its devices are equipped with only a few moving parts, and can be used on a wide range sizes of vessels without causing disruption. The S-VDR comes with a fixed memory capsule which documents the 12 hours of data required by law. It can be supplemented by a removable memory option that provides up to 96 hours of data.

When you’re choosing a vdr, ensure that it is compatible with various types of devices, including mobile phones and tablets. It should provide a consistent and intuitive user experience across all devices. A good provider will offer training materials and support that is available all the time. You should seek out security features that include advanced encryption and scanning for viruses. You must be able to determine whether the company meets third-party standards for the protection of uploaded files.
