Samsung Techwin has introduced a series of competitively-priced NVRs equipped with a built in PoE+ switch. This news follows on from the launch of the company’s WiseNet Lite security cameras. Collectively, the cameras and NVRs are intended to provide system designers with a wide range of options that will meet both the budget limitations and any functionality requirements stipulated by end users around forthcoming video surveillance projects.
The 4, 8 and 16-channel NVRs offer the opportunity to significantly reduce installation costs by negating the need for the provision of separate power supplies and switches. Built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE+) functionality means that all three of the new NVR models can provide sufficient power for any ONVIF-compliant PoE+ camera (including speed domes and dome cameras with heaters).
“Our new NVRs offer a safe method of supplying power to cameras and other devices over standard Ethernet data cables, with the added advantage that organisations can use PoE anywhere without having to take into account any variations in local power standards,” explained Tim Biddulph, head of product and marketing for Samsung Techwin Europe.
“However, one of the key benefits of employing PoE is that IP network-based systems can be expanded at any time without disruption or the need to install additional cables.”
4K camera support
The three new NVRs offer 8 Megapixel camera support which means that they’re able to record extremely high quality images including those captured from 4K cameras.
Although they-re described as value-engineered and priced accordingly, the new NVRs are equipped with a long list of user friendly and practical benefits, including a very easy to use, multi-language, on-screen graphical user interface. Also, they can be locally configured and controlled by a plug-in mouse or joystick controller.
Samsung Techwin’s cameras may be easily configured through the NVR interface without the need for a PC.
Operators are provided with the choice of using the NVRs’ HDMI or VGA outputs. All three models support H.264 and MJPEG compression while at the same time offering the option to multi-stream video at different resolutions to smart phones and tablets as well as any PC on the network.
The three new models are as follows:
- SRN-473S: 4 camera channel NVR with 4 PoE+ ports, 32 Mbps network bandwith recording, one internal HDDs and e-SATA support
- SRN-873S: 8 camera channel NVR with 8 PoE+ ports, 64 Mbps network bandwith recording, two internal HDDs and e-SATA support
- SRN-1673S: 16 camera channel NVR with 16 PoE+ ports, 80 Mbps network bandwidth recording, four Internal HDDs and and e-SATA support
