Dedicated Micros introduces new DVR

September 2, 2009, Chantilly, VA—Dedicated Micros – part of AD Group – is targeting the mid-range CCTV market with its new SD Advanced Hybrid DVR (Digital Video Recorder). The hybrid SD Advanced comes in 16, 12 or 8 channel models includes capabilities such as IP video source recording, front panel local control, transcoding, and VGA main monitor support.

The SD Advanced features embedded help videos that are accessible from both the local and remote viewer and cover all major operation and configuration topics including: the use of Point&Go, Absolute Positioning and On-Screen Maps.

When deployed, the new SD Advanced is capable of seamlessly recording and displaying IP video streams from IP Cameras, encoders and other NetVu Connected video servers.

The Analytics Capable models of the SD Advanced can be easily upgraded to run a range of Dedicated Micros' analytics components including: license plate capture, valuable object watch, perimeter protection and doorway counting. This is already enabled within the hardware of the unit and only a software license upgrade is required to activate the analytics.

With the potential for complete integration between Dedicated Micros' Oracle Dome and the SD Advanced, users can configure the PTZ dome directly from the DVR.

Another key feature of the SD Advanced is the potential for up to 16 SD Advanced units to be controlled from a single keyboard interface, such as NetVu Console. This is especially advantageous where the units are centrally located and configured in a video wall.

“The SD Advanced is an important addition to our DVR range,” said Mark Provinsal, executive vice president of Dedicated Micros. “It takes the proven strengths of the existing SD Range and integrates a number of exciting new features, such as IP streaming and recording and Oracle PTZ control, to create what we believe is an extremely competitive, mid-range, DVR solution. In addition, the series of on-board help videos ensures that, whatever the application, the SD Advanced is used to its greatest potential.”
