Low Energy Consumption Linux Based Network Video Recorder

Plustek : 26 January, 2012  (New Product)
The nDVR 540 from Plustek is the latest network video recorder offered by the company with robust design, 4-channel recording and H.264 compression
Low Energy Consumption Linux Based Network Video Recorder
Plustek has launched its most innovative standalone nDVR to date.
 
With the enormous growth in the business and economy, there has been an increase in criminal activities across all geographies. Organisations, whether government or private, small or big, are aggressively adopting surveillance technology to help protect against threats. Designed as a 24/7 surveillance tool, the Plustek nDVR 540 can help to address the important issue of ensuring the safety and security of premises.
 
The nDVR 540 will be distributed in the UK by Cleveland Cable Company, a leading distributor of electrical cables in Europe. Phil Barkley, Area Sales Manager at Cleveland Cable Company, said: “We’re excited with the launch of the Plustek nDVR 540 because it can really help to address the problem of ensuring the safety and security of shops, petrol stations, small businesses, hotels, offices and other organisations.”
 
The nDVR 540 supports real-time 4-channel video recording with H.264 compression. Its robust aluminium design facilitates heat dissipation and its embedded switch port allows users to connect network cameras in seconds. This, in turn, enables simple multi-site local recording, which saves video feeds directly into an internal storage system to bypass the need to run any computers. Remote users can view live streams, playback, and even backup data to any predefined server using Plustek’s bundled video management software.
 
The nDVR 540’s unique features can be fully utilised even in normally difficult to monitor environments. One practical use of the nDVR is at construction sites, where its sealed design allows it to operate in harsh environments. In addition, the time stamp feature allows users to keep track of construction progress and easily revisit past accidents.
 
Another practical feature of the nDVR 540 is its ability to help prevent theft and vandalism. While its diminutive size keeps it out of sight of intruders, the event alert feature immediately notifies users when it senses possible ill-intended trespassers. Its size advantage also makes it extremely useful at places with space constraints such as retail outlets, petrol stations, gate entrances and areas with high ceilings.
 
With the nDVR 540 users will find a peace of mind no matter how far away they are - not only will the videos be stored locally, users can also set scheduled backups to remote servers to protect recorded data. They can even specify frame rate to select the most appropriate trade-off between quality and backup cost for their company. Videos are recorded in M-JPEG or H.264 formats at up to 110fps (PAL) and up to 120fps (NTSC), making later playback through any media players a breeze. Image settings allows for altering compression, brightness and contrast to get the best quality recordings.
 
Other key benefits of the nDVR 540 include seamless integration with analogue cameras. The biggest value of analogue surveillance comes from its ability to connect with legacy cameras, reducing deployment costs. The nDVR 540 is ideal for analogue cameras as it does not add additional overheads to servers - even when using high frame rate settings. As a result, video recordings can go uninterrupted even when a remote central server shuts down or during peak traffic hours. Users never have to worry about losing critical footage again.
 
In terms of energy consumption, the nDVR 540 is one of the best of its kind. It runs a Linux-based operating system and has an extremely low energy consumption level of 8 watts. Coupled with the ability to integrate with solar energy, the nDVR 540 is exceptionally energy efficient and perfect for multi-site use. Users can use the bundled Multi-Manager software to easily manage over 128 channels by streaming multiple videos on the same screen.
 
Additionally, users on the go can access individual site’s feeds through their mobile devices. The system flexible design also allows for setting multiple permission levels. With tiered access privileges, recorded data can be retrieved securely and remotely via the Web and/or FTP.
