NUUO CT-8000R-US-4T-4 overview

  • 1Description

The 4TB CT-8000R Crystal 2U Rack-Mountable 8-Bay Network Video Recorder from NUUO is a Linux-embedded recording solution that supports H.264 encoding for up to 64 channels with a throughput of 250 Mb/s. Featuring a modular system structure that is made to handle large project sizes, the NUUO Crystal NVR is a suitable choice for enterprise solutions. The benefits of a modular system design are that not only can it be managed centrally, down to a process level, but every module can also work independently. When a process fails, only that process module shuts down and the rest of the system will continue to function normally, further enhancing system stability.

This NVR features recording failover functionality to safeguard server uptime and performance consistency. The failover function can be assigned and managed as a cluster, so that N+M redundancy can be achieved. The NVR features support for unlimited numbers of cameras, 3rd-party access control systems, POS, and I/O devices. Any number of users and user groups may be assigned different levels of management rights, monitoring points, and event processing. Combined with the NuClient software to provide centralized live view and playback video stream, NUUO Crystal provides the user with total control over the entire system at their fingertips.

Utilizing a custom recording technology known as File Ring, the NUUO Crystal NVR is able to handle high megapixel recordings. The NVR is able to maintain data throughput up to 250 Mb/s for a single volume, 400 Mb/s for 2 volumes, and 500 Mb/s for 3 volumes. The NUUO Crystal NVR supports an unlimited number of video wall displays, up to 100 channels per monitor. With a built-in View Wizard, changing view configurations is as easy as dragging and dropping different view grids. The NVR also features Image Fusion to stitch multiple views into one single picture. Combined with PTZ joystick control, Fisheye Dewarp algorithm, and video tour modes, reviewing and monitoring are simplified.
