The Dedicated Micros DS2PD16160 Digital Sprite 2 Plus is a commercial grade digital video recorder, designed as a way to manage multiple cameras for recording, viewing and control from a single robust and feature rich device. Some of the key advantages a DS2 has over an ECO series DVR are a faster recording speed, dual streaming, DVD burner, audio I/O ports, advanced alarm functions, an elaborate motion detector, multiple recording modes and telemetry control.
Video is simultaneously streamed in both the JPEG and MPEG-4 formats, allowing a user to record in high resolution MJPEG while viewing live footage in the fast MPEG-4 format. Alternatively, a user can choose one over the other to suit a particular circumstance. In either mode, this unit is capable of video recording speeds up to 120 PPS for the combined video inputs.
In network mode, multiple clients can access the unit from a remote Internet PC for viewing and camera control at the same time a local operator is using the DVR to record and view live video, with no degradation in performance. In addition to the main storage drive, this DVR features a built-in DVD burner, offering an easy way to archive and transfer critical event material. Audio I/O ports provide 2-way voice communication between a local user and a client at a PC station.
