The Digital Sentry Network Video Recorder from Pelco is optimized to deliver the essential hardware support for the DS NVs VMS (Video Management Software) without the extra cost or risk of integrating hardware and software.
Boosted by the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Digital Sentry NVR provides an optimal combination of processing power and reliability to meet the demands of HD video recording and playback operations. This system is powered to support up to 128 combined IP and analog video streams, with up to 64 analog cameras supported via the ENC5416 direct-attached encoder (sold separately). Analog streams are also supported using Pelco and third-party encoders (sold separately). The DS NVR delivers total available throughput of 280 Mb/s for recording of analog and IP video streams as well as playback and export through the DS ControlPoint client. When determining the maximum number of cameras and the desired frame rate to host on each system, the number of concurrent client connections, the number of streams likely to be viewed in playback on each client, and the bandwidth required to support the client connections must be taken into consideration. The DS NVR functions as a stand-alone system or as part of a network of servers, monitored from the DS ControlPoint user interface. The system can be deployed solely as a network video recorder, as a DVR (Digital Video Recorder), or as a hybrid NVR. 2 gigabit network ports provide for convenient network architecture planning by allowing 1 port to be dedicated to IP cameras, while the second network port is used for client connections. 2 DVI-D ports provide a convenient connection for high-resolution digital monitors for use with HD cameras.
