The two new Samsung SRN network video recorder series have been designed to have the look and familiarity of a DVR, whilst delivering all the benefits of an NVR.
Unlike most NVRs, which can only be programmed remotely, the two new models can also be locally configured and controlled with the help of a mouse and a very easy to use multi-language on-screen graphical user interface.
The four channel SRN-470D and sixteen channel SRN-1670D both utilise H.264 compression to minimise bandwidth requirements whilst maintaining high image quality and also offer the option of using MPEG-4 or MJPEG compression. A recording throughput of 64mbps allows both models to simultaneously record in real time 704 x 480 resolution images from all connected cameras or up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) from selected cameras from Samsung’s comprehensive range of IP cameras, Full HD megapixel, HD megapixel, 4-CIF and VGA cameras.
“I am confident that the competitively priced SRN-470D and SRN-1670D NVRs will very quickly become popular with both installers and users,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “A key benefit of an NVR is that it can be installed anywhere on a network. This could be in a central control room or immediately adjacent to sets of cameras, but wherever it is located, a separate PC is usually required by installers for programming purposes, as well as for a user to view the live or recorded images. The great advantage offered by the SRN-470D and SRN-1670D is that it can be programmed and controlled by just the use of a plug-in mouse and in this respect it offers familiarity with a DVR. This should prove to be a particularly attractive feature for installers who have limited experience of commissioning IP network based recording solutions.”
An additional installer friendly and time saving feature incorporated into the SRN-470D and SRN-1670D is the ability to automatically detect and register all of the connected cameras.
The SRN-470D has the facility for a 2TB SATA HDD, whilst the SRN-1670D, with the capacity for five SATA HDDs, offers the potential for a massive 10TB of on-board storage. Both models can record audio across all channels and have a built-in DVD Writer and USB ports for easy export of video as well as a 1080P resolution HDMI output.
Full compatibility with Samsung’s license-free NET-i Viewer Centralised Management Software (CMS) ensures users can access an SRN-470D or SRN-1670D NVR via a PC from anywhere in the world, keeping people connected 24/7 with their security systems wherever they may be.
Available from all Samsung distributors, the SRN-470D or SRN-1670D SRN are offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.
