Clovis, Calif. – March 14, 2012 – Pelco by Schneider Electric announces the release and availability of DX4700HD and DX4800HD Series hybrid video recorders. Building on the success of the DX4700 and DX4800 HVRs, the new DX4700HD/DX4800HD series adds support for up to eight IP megapixel cameras on each HVR, in addition to 8 or 16 analog cameras, for a total of 16 or 24 cameras. “Customers can benefit from megapixel image detail where they need it most;” says Angelica Torres-Corral, Pelco Product Marketing Manager, “for example, to monitor registers, cash counting operations, high-value merchandise or lobbies and entrances –while still receiving maximum use and value from existing analog cameras and cabling. This makes DX4700HD/DX4800HD an excellent choice to meet the video security needs of retail, banking, and a myriad of small business environments.”
A powerful new processor supports up to 12 Mbps of bandwidth, while an improved graphics processor supports the display of 1080p HD video at the HVR. Both models record up to 30 ips on all channels, and the DX4800HD adds the ability to record full frame rate video at 4CIF resolutions for all cameras.
Support for HD video at the server also includes the ability to mix analog and IP cameras when viewing live video, while an updated camera display gives users even greater visibility to their entire environment. Users will also benefit from bidirectional audio for enhanced security, access to instant playback for quick investigative work, and the ability to capture and overlay ATM/POS text with video recording.
With up to 8 TB of internal storage, the DX4700HD/DX4800HD series overcomes the high storage demands of megapixel and high-speed recording without sacrificing speed for resolution. H.264 main profile video compression means more efficient use of storage. Customers can readily expand storage with either JBOD or RAID-5 optional eSATA devices. DX4700HD/DX4800HD series HVRs also match security requirements to storage needs with the unique HDD partitioning feature, which can allocate individual disk partitions for normal and alarm recording.
“The DX family of DVRs and HVRs from Pelco by Schneider Electric has long been a favorite among customers who require easy-to-configure, easy-to-use, out-of-the-box video recording,” says Torres-Corral. “Now, with the newest addition to the DX family, Pelco by Schneider Electric has just added a fast lane to your Megapixel migration path.”
