New G5 DVRs delivers twice the processing power of previous generations


IRVINE, CA, November 8, 2011 -- Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today introduced its G5 Series of digital video recorders, doubling the performance of previous generation recorders.

By employing Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, G5 recorders achieve twice the speed and power of Toshiba's G4 models. System memory has also been doubled, along with the incorporation of DVI and HDMI monitor output for dual monitor output to large panel displays, and eSATA and USB3.0 ports for external storage. eSATA has transfer speeds of 3.0Gbit/s and USB3.0 has speeds of 5Gbit/s - 10x faster than USB 2.0 speeds of 480Mbit/s.
