The 18TB DSSRV-180-UK Digital Sentry Network Video Recorder from Pelco is optimized to deliver essential hardware support for the DS NVs video management software (VMS) without the risk of integrating hardware and software.
Boosted by the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Digital Sentry NVR provides an optimal combination of processing power and reliability to meet the demands of HD video recording and playback operations. The system is powered to support up to 128 combined IP and analog video streams, with up to 64 analog cameras supported via the optional ENC5416 directly attachable encoder (sold separately). Analog streams are also supported using Pelco and third-party encoders.
The NVR delivers total available throughput of 280Mb/s for recording of analog and IP video streams as well as playback and export through the DS ControlPoint client. When determining the maximum number of cameras and the desired frame rate to host on every system, the number of concurrent client connections, the number of streams likely to be viewed in playback on each client, and the bandwidth required to support the client connections must be taken into consideration.
The DS NVR functions as a stand-alone system or as part of a network of servers, monitored from the DS ControlPoint user interface. The system can be deployed solely as a network video recorder, as a digital video recorder (DVR), or as a hybrid NVR.
Thanks to the 2 gigabit network ports, handy network architecture planning is facilitated by allowing 1 port to be dedicated to IP cameras, while the second network port is used for client connections. 2 DVI-D ports provide a convenient connection for high-resolution digital monitors for use with HD cameras.
The 18TB drive is hot-swappable when configured for internal RAID 5 storage with the optional RAID 5 controller card (sold separately). External storage is supported through USB attached storage or by using the DSSRV-SCSI interface card (sold separately) connected to DX8100HDDI storage of up to 24TB. The external storage can be configured for JBOD storage of software-controlled RAID 5. Internal RAID 5 storage cannot be used in conjunction with external storage. The unit comes with a UK power cord in addition to a US power cord.
Front panel LED displays on the DS NVR provide heads-up information on system operation. The LEDs are integrated with the new Digital Sentry System Information (DSSI) utility, providing critical, real-time statistics on system resource utilization, temperature, and throughput status.
