The Complete Forensic Hardware Solution

FRED systems are optimized for stationary laboratory acquisition and analysis. Simply remove the hard drive(s) from the suspect system and plug them into FRED and acquire the digital evidence. FRED will acquire data directly from IDE/EIDE/ATA/SATA/ATAPI/SAS/Firewire/USB hard drives and storage devices and save forensic images to Blu-Ray, DVD, CD or hard drives. FRED systems also acquire data from Blu-Ray, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Compact Flash, Micro Drives, Smart Media, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, xD Cards, Secure Digital Media and Multimedia Cards. Furthermore, with the optional tape drive FRED is capable of archiving to or acquiring evidence from LTO Ultrium 5 tapes. All FRED systems include the UltraBay, front panel connections, and removable drive trays so there is no need to open up the processing system to install drives or crawl around the back of the unit to attach devices.

Dual Xeon Hex Core Speed (12 Processors)

Dual Processor system implementations have traditionally been “server centric” with: outdated chipsets, poor memory bandwidth, poor I/O bandwidth, and limited support for integrated peripherals. Digital Intelligence designed the first Dual Processor system with all the pre-requisite performance, flexibility, and reliably required of a Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (FRED). This system is built on a dual-processor 64-bit Xeon Motherboard, with outstanding flexibility, integrated peripheral support, and performance far beyond anything previously seen in a Forensic Workstation.

Ventilated Imaging Shelf

Selected FRED systems include our ventilated imaging shelf for maximum drive cooling during the imaging process:

  • Integrated Retractable imaging shelf (fully retracts into the system when not in use).
  • Dual fans for maximum cooling and surface coverage.
  • Auto On/Off switch when shelf is opened or closed.
  • Slotted, cushioned, non-conductive, non-skid, surface supports all popular drive sizes (3-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 1.8″, etc).
