One of the main challenges of converting analogue systems to HD is the variety of platforms which are found in older coax systems. Integrating IP cameras can be a difficulty with an existing cabled system. Not all DVRs suit all the difference platforms and it is important to find the right recording device, however configuring it can be another struggle.
The Ultra and Pro DVRs offer Penta-brid compatibility and deliver a streamlined, open-source recording solution and explore five additional reasons to embrace the newest additions to the HDCVI 3.0 group.
Ease of Installation
These DVRs are equipped with plug and play functionality, in order to simplify installations and operations and automatically recognise incoming signals of each attached camera without any setup.
Up to 70 Percent Savings on Bandwidth and Storage
The Ultra and Pro Series DVRs include the new Smart H.264+ codec dual-stream video compression for savings of up to 70 percent bandwidth and storage when compared to standard H.264. Smart H.264+ allows video surveillance systems to retain more information for longer periods of time without sacrificing image quality.
Supports both Analog and IP Cameras
The new HDCVI 3.0 DVRs provide outstanding flexibility, are available in 16- and 32-channel models, and can simultaneously record and monitor video from analogue and IP cameras, or a combination of both. These DVRs support from 5MP to 12MP on IP camera inputs for recording and live viewing.
Intelligent Video System (IVS)
Standard and premium IVS analytics are available on one channel for the Ultra and Pro Series HDCVI 3.0 DVRs. Facial detection is available on the first analogue channel which detects and captures a snapshot of a human face in a defined area within a scene. The Ultra Series 16-channel model includes expanded features which include people counting.
The new HDCVI 3.0 DVRs provide advanced options such as built in motion detection algorithms and customised recording modes, allowing the operator to specify a region in the playback video in order to search for a motion detection event, which saves overall time and manpower.
These DVRs can be programmed to record if motion is detected or an alarm is triggered, which saves space on the hard drive, and can also be programmed to record on schedule or at different time intervals, which can be customised for individual cameras or copied to all cameras.
