Pelco by Schneider Electric, a producer of video and security systems located in Clovis, Calif., unveils its DX4700 and DX4800 hybrid video recorders designed for customers who want to migrate to megapixel video while still gaining maximum value from their existing analog video surveillance infrastructure.
The DX4700 and DX4800 hybrid video recorders are the latest in the Pelco by Schneider Electric DX4000 Series of video management solutions, the company says in a written statement.
While Pelco by Schneider Electric is excited about the move toward internet protocol (IP) and megapixel imaging, the fact is there are thousands of installations out there with perfectly good analog cameras, says Yvonne Schwemmer, the company’s product marketing manager. Where it makes sense to begin a migration toward IP video, those new HVRs are a perfect fit, she adds.
Powerful Features +2 Available with eight or 16 analog channels plus support for two megapixel cameras DX4700 and DX4800 offer an unmatched combination of power and performance in a cost-effective package for mid-range applications.
An attractive feature of the DX4700 and DX4800 HVRs is they allow users to manage their security budget while migrating to IP at their own pace, Schwemmer says. Both models record up to 30 images per second recording on all channels.
DX4800 takes it further, with the ability to record full frame rate video at full 4CIF resolution for all cameras. With this kind of recording power, previous analog investments gain an extended life.
Users can now enjoy the benefits of megapixel image detail where they need it most to watch registers, cash counting operations, high-value merchandise areas or lobbies and entrances, Schwemmer says, while still getting maximum value from existing analog cameras and cabling.
Installation costs are even further reduced with easy, out-of-the-box-ready recording. An intuitive interface makes custom installation easy and decreases learning time for end-users, the company says.
