02 Hardware Overview - VBOX Video HD2 (v6)


For a quick step-by-step guide to setting up the VBOX Video HD2 system in a vehicle, click here to see the Quick Start Guide.

The VBOX Video HD2 is designed to disperse heat from internal components through the lid of the box, as such the unit will become hot to the touch when running.

The enclosure is designed to use airflow to cool the unit down, so do ensure that the top of the HD2 is left open to the air.

If VBOX Video HD2 is being used in extreme ambient temperatures (cabin temperature exceeding 50°C), the Harsh Environment Fan Accessory can reduce the temperature of the unit.


If the HD2 is being used in conjunction with a driver communication radio system, ensure that there is a minimum separation distance of 20 cm between the radio system and the camera units and cables to avoid any video interference problems.

LED Behaviour  

If two solid green LEDs are shown, the system is ready to record.

If the system is permanently fitted to a vehicle, it should be possible to view the front panel when it is mounted. A brief overview of the LED behaviour is below.

Green – Fast Flash System powering up or updating firmware/ scene
Green – Slow Flash Fully powered - No SD Card/ USB Memory
Green – Solid SD Card/ USB Memory OK – READY TO LOG
Orange – Slow Flash Requires reboot
Red – Solid System Error
The unit will automatically power cycle after approximately 30 seconds


Green – Slow Flash Searching for Satellites
Green – Solid GPS Lock OK – READY TO LOG


Blue – Solid Recording  DO NOT REMOVE MEDIA
Blue – Fast Flash Closing Files  DO NOT REMOVE MEDIA


There is a fourth LED on the rear of the system. If the mounting solution only allows the back panel to be visible, this status LED works on a simple ‘traffic light’ style system. 

Status LED
Red System Error
Orange Not ready to record (either no GPS or no SD Card USB Memory)
Green Ready to record  – system all OK
