Complete range of H.264 DVRs launched by Samsung

Surrey, UK

Sixteen new network friendly DVRs have been introduced which capitalise on Samsung's high level H.264 compression to ensure superb picture quality, whilst minimising hard drive space and bandwidth requirements.

The new four, eight and sixteen channel DVRs in the new SRD series each offer a long list of installer and operator friendly features making it possible to pick the perfect unit for the application at hand, according to Samsung.

"Our development team has designed the series to ensure that there is a solution for a very wide range of applications and budgets," said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager Europe for the professional security division of Samsung Techwin Europe Limited. "For example, there are SRD models offering real-time 4-CIF, 2-CIF or CIF resolution recording, which are available with or without built-in DVD drives."

All DVRs in the range feature Virtual Progressive Scan (VPS) which eliminates the problem of blurred edges on moving objects to provide picture-perfect still frames and selected models come complete with an HDMI output able to upscale image to 1080P. As well as RS485 control, selected SRD models also feature coaxial control compatibility to enable the control of compatible cameras and domes over the coaxial cable without the need for additional data cable, saving both time and money on installation.

Additional installer and operator friendly features include a fully removable back panel so that hard drives can be swapped and upgraded without having to unplug all of the cables and a multiple language on screen display. Data from ATM, POS or access control devices can be captured with the text data saved along with associated images to be played back if required at a later date.

Dual codec operation delivers different streams for both high performance recording and optimised transmission whilst a built in web-server allows live and playback viewing options with the ability to back up incidents via a web browser. For advanced network operation, SRD series DVRs are all fully compatibility with Samsung's SVM-S1 Centralised Management Software (CMS) which provides enhanced functionality as part of a complete integrated security system. They also share the same intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) menu structure to make it easy for operators, for example, to set up each channel to record at different frames rates or resolutions.

Peter Ainsworth added: "Samsung digital video recorders have earned an excellent reputation in the security industry over recent years for providing exceptional image quality, excellent functionality and outstanding value. We believe that this reputation will be further enhanced with the introduction of these exceptionally good value DVRs."
