IRVINE, CALIF.—Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group has removed the last barrier for small- and middle-sized businesses to deploy an IP network video surveillance system with its ESV4 four-channel embedded network video recorder.

The Toshiba ESV4 is loaded with new features and technologies such as HDMI output in 1080p HD video, simultaneous recording of four megapixel IP cameras, mobile app support and free video management software. The NVR is compatible with Toshiba IP cameras and more than 500 other OnVIF-compliant IP cameras up to five megapixels.

The ESV4 interface is simple to operate on a local recorder, in a browser or remotely viewed from a mobile device. It also comes with on-board CMS basic video management software that uses standard network protocols to automatically find and configure cameras, assign IP addresses, display connection status and manage multiple cameras with live monitoring with full search capabilities. This combination of both design and technology has streamlined the IP migration process and eliminated the confusion often associated with recording video on the network.

Embedded with the Linux operating system and supporting H.264 live monitoring and recording, the ESV4 offers reliability and is also adaptive to evolving security needs with expandable video storage up to 6-Terabytes on its two internal high-speed SATA HDDs. Live video from IP cameras operating in multiple locations can be remotely managed and recorded on an ESV4 stored off-site to prevent tampering.
