The 8-Channel HD Network Video Recorder from Vivotek is designed for sophisticated recording applications. It is equipped with an Intel Dual-Core Atom processor with a maximum recording throughput of 96 Mb/s. This recorder supports RAID 0/1 with 2 removable HDDs for backup efficiency and an external eSATA port for additional expansion. This desktop-type NVR features a local display output port that supports Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), which eliminates the need for a separate PC to view video from the unit.
Easy setup of parameters such as IP, HDD, and basic camera configuration is possible thanks to the setup wizard of the 8-Channel HD NVR. When connecting this recorder to more than one Vivotek camera (same model), the Shepherd program can be used to duplicate configuration settings to multiple cameras.
The operating system used in this HD network video recorder is Vivotek’s professional central management software VAST, which allows for simple and effective management of a surveillance system using the LiveClient and Playback programs.
As Vivotek’s camera features are fully integrated into VAST, technologies such as SVC and Activity Adaptive Recording can be utilized to conserve bandwidth and optimize recording. A CMS server running VAST software can also directly control this recorder, and compatibility with the iViewer application allows for remote access to the ND8301 on handheld devices.
What’s more, integrating the 8-channel HD recorder with network cameras, VAST, and iViewer software provides users with a fully-featured and robust surveillance system.
