Dedicated Micros has introduced the Hybrid Digital Sprite 2 and DV-IP Server digital video recorders. The hybrid units support both IP and analog cameras. The enhanced units offer the same capability as an NVR, but they will also support analog cameras. The Digital Sprite 2 and DV-IP Server units support current IP camera manufacturers including AXIS and JVC.
The i-Pro WJ-ND300A network video recorder from Panasonic is designed for mid to large applications. With many of the same features as its predecessor, the NVR offers higher network performance through an increased CPU speed to 1 GHz, reflecting a 30 percent wider bandwidth, 32-camera real-time recording at MPEG-4, and 16-camera 10 ips recording at MJPEG. The “A” model also supports a 500 GB HDD (2 TB / unit), preset registration up to 256 positions, and camera auto mode.
