Vista Releases New DVR, CCTV Products at IFSEC

May 2007, Reading, UK - Always at the forefront of technology, Vista will be unleashing four exciting new products at this year's IFSEC exhibition. The Formidable 4, AKA the Navigator DVR, Vista Blade DVR, PowerDome2 and Graphica2, come with an added surprise on the stand guaranteed to set your heart racing.

The first of Vista's crime fighters is Navigator, a mid-range DVR with 4, 10 or 16 camera inputs that offers excellent functionality. Simple to set-up but powerful in operation, the Navigator offers the installer and end-user a truly intuitive menu structure. Powerful record rates of 100 images per second at 2 CIF resolution with a choice of formats allows for both MPEG 4 and MJPEG compression. This makes it ideal for both streaming video across network (MPEG4) and recording high resolution images for detailed analysis (MJPEG).

Next comes Vista Blade, an enterprise level real-time DVR with 4, 8 or 16 inputs, capable of recording up to 400 images per second for 16 cameras at D1 resolution. Up to four internal drives support 3TB of storage and the internal cooling system prevents overheating. This sophisticated piece of engineering helps to optimize hard disk life and record rates, thus prolonging the life of the product.

The PowerDome2 range comes with improved housing design and more powerful camera modules, including 26:1 day/night and 23:1 day/night WDR. The domes include both camera yoke and black-box memory allowing either yoke or housing to be swapped out and automatically reprogrammed with camera settings such as presets, tours, privacy zones etc. without manual re-programming.

Finally, Graphica2 allows for control of the new Blade and Navigator DVRs. Packed with new features such as multi-site / multi-user operation over LAN, WAN and the internet, the software utilizes an advanced user interface to combine conventional analogue video products and networked digital products, thus allowing direct streaming of IP cameras.
