IRVINE, CA, January 22, 2013 -- Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., has removed the last barrier for small- and middle-sized businesses to deploy an IP network video surveillance system with the introduction of its new ESV4, a four-channel embedded network video recorder (NVR) that combines high-definition output with exceptionally low cost-of-ownership.
The Toshiba ESV4 is loaded with new features and advanced technologies like HDMI output in 1080p high-definition video, simultaneous recording of four megapixel IP cameras, mobile app support (iPhone, iPad, Android), and free Video Management Software to make it the perfect solution for those businesses hesitant to migrate from legacy analog systems to IP video surveillance. It is compatible with Toshiba IP cameras and more than 500 other OnVIF compliant IP cameras up to five megapixels.
"While larger commercial and enterprise-class customers have fully embraced IP-based video surveillance, the vast majority of businesses with 16 cameras or less have continued to use outdated analog systems because of cost considerations," said Sergio Collazo, Director of Sales and Marketing for Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group. "The ESV4 brings IP's networking advantages to these customers at a price comparable to a standard DVR."
The ESV4 interface is simple to operate, whether on a local recorder, in a browser or remotely viewed from a mobile device. For additional convenience, it comes with on-board CMS Basic Video Management Software that uses standard network protocols to automatically find and configure cameras, assign IP addresses, display connection status and manage multiple cameras with live monitoring with full search capabilities. This combination of both design and technology has streamlined the IP migration process and eliminated the confusion often associated with recording video on the network.
Embedded with the robust Linux operating system and supporting H.264 live monitoring and recording, the ESV4 offers superior reliability. It is also highly adaptive to evolving security needs with expandable video storage up to 6-Terabytes on its two internal high-speed SATA HDDs. Live video from IP cameras operating in multiple locations can be remotely managed and recorded on an ESV4 stored off-site to prevent tampering.
