The 12TB DSSRVRD012USDVR 2RU Digital Sentry DSSRV Network Video Recorder from Pelco is optimized to deliver the essential hardware support for the DS NVs video management software (VMS) without the extra cost or risk of integrating hardware and software.

Boosted by the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the DSSRV NVR offers a good 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 ENC5416 direct-attached encoder (sold separately). Analog streams are also supported using Pelco and third-party encoders.

The DSSRV NVR delivers total available throughput of 280 Mb/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 each 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 DSSRV 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.

Two gigabit network ports offer convenient network architecture planning by allowing one port to be dedicated to IP cameras, while the second network port is used for client connections. Two DVI-D ports provide a convenient connection for high resolution digital monitors for use with HD cameras.

With front-available drives for easy servicing and upgrades, the DSSRV NVR is available with up to 18 TB for models without the optional optical disk drive (ODD), or up to 12 TB for ODD models. The drives are hot-swappable when configured for internal RAID 5 storage with the optional RAID 5 controller card. A minimum of three drives is required for a RAID 5 configuration. External storage is supported through USB attached storage or by using the optional DSSRV-SCSI interface card to connect to external SCSI storage targets such as the DX8100HDDI, providing additional 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.

Front panel LED displays on the DSSRV NVR provide information on system operation. The LEDs are integrated with the Digital Sentry System Information (DSSI) utility, providing critical, real-time statistics on system resource utilization, temperature, and throughput status.

The cornerstone of Digital Sentry design, a fully Open Architecture, is provided through ONVIF compliance and support for a large number of IP-specific drivers. Users can choose specific IP cameras or encoders to fit their application.

In addition, the Digital Sentry platform supports the Pelco API and a full suite of integration tools, allowing Digital Sentry to be integrated into access control or PSIM systems.

Eliminate the risk of deferred support that comes with VMS software from one vendor and a general purpose hardware platform from another. Replace it with the assurance of an integrated platform built specifically for the rigors of IP video recording. Make the performance, reliability, and Open Architecture of DS NVs running on DSSRV NVR the core foundation of your video management solution.
