Samsung’s new four channel SRD-440 H.264 DVR offers users the convenience of remotely monitoring live or recorded images via an iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone.
The SRD-440 is fully compatible with the free Samsung iPOLiS MOBILE app which can be downloaded from iTunes and the Android market. It supersedes the SRD-450 and is likely to be equally popular with installers who are looking to recommend an economically priced recording solution for small retail and office environments, and particularly so where the user wishes to keep a watchful eye on their premises out of business hours.
“Although priced as an entry-level DVR, the SRD-440 certainly does not compromise on quality,” said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “It is equipped with a range of impressive features including the ability to record high quality CIF video in real time across all channels, as well as single channel audio recording, whilst there is the option to record up to 4-CIF over selected channels.”
The SRD-440 also provides users with the option to remotely view live or recorded video over the Internet via a browser and is supported by Samsung’s license free NET-i Viewer software which enables the centralised monitoring, control and administration of Samsung DVRs and iPOLiS network devices, even when the client has multiple sites and is using a mix of analogue and IP equipment.
The utilisation of ‘network-friendly’ H.264 compression ensures the SRD-440 makes the most of available bandwidth whilst also maximising the amount of video which can be stored on the SRD-440’s 500GB internal hard disk drive. A built-in USB slot provides a quick and easy way to extract recorded video of any important incidents.
A 22 language graphical user interface has been designed to make it easy for users with minimal training to configure and control the SRD-440 and when needed, to take advantage of the wide range of search and playback options.
Available from all Samsung distributors, the SRD-440 is offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd., including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.
