Our obligation is limited to providing service as described in this warranty. We are not responsible for any lost time, profits or business, personal injury, property damage or similar loss, or any punitive, consequential or other direct, indirect or incidental damages.
To protect your equipment from power related damages that could void your warranty, we recommend the use of a Double-Conversion Online Power Supply/Backup UPS to act as a filter for any surges cause by higher voltage equipment like machinery, generators, etc… This will help protect unexpected hard drive data loss and high voltage damage to both your recording and imaging equipment.
