NineOne Co. Ltd. (dvr.nineone.com), in cooperation with Neugent Technologies, Inc. (dvr.neugent.net) launched one of the world’s first wall-mounted Burglar Digital Video Recorder built with complete integration with alarms and sensors at IFSEC 2006.
Designed for retail, as well as residential security, Neugent claims that the new Hawkeye Burglar DVR offers a highly stable standalone surveillance solution with embedded Linux platform and Smart A+ Hardware MPEG-4 technology. Michael Jang, Neugent’s CEO, states that, “An embedded Linux is an excellent platform because it provides stability, reliability over time, fully utilized system resources, lower purchase and maintenance costs and portability. Linux is an open source, requires limited hardware space, and has no royalty costs compared to other operating systems.”
The Hawkeye Burglar DVR combines the power of Linux, MPEG-4, and IP network technologies. It offers 4 and 8 video channels, real-time video capture and crystal clear display, audio recording, worry-free installation via wallmount design, uncomplicated search functions, motion detection, flexible network connection, back up via USB 2.0 or CD-RW and integration with sirens, PIR sensors, smoke detectors and other alarms and sensors.
Both companies believe that one of the major barriers to consumer acceptance of any DVR, or even any appliance, is complexity of the system. The Hawkeye Burglar DVR’s major advantage is its plug and play architecture. Mr. Jang adds that, “It requires a nontechnical installation. You simply hang it on the wall, connect your cameras and operate the system via remote control.”
The Hawkeye Burglar DVR can be best applied in small to mid-scale including data center, retail and franchise areas, convenient stores, gas stations, resorts, hospitals, banks, schools and museums.
