Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - introduced the DV-IP HD (High Definition) video server at IIPSEC 2008. Visitors were able to see the DV-IP HD system as the centrepiece of a High Definition CCTV area on the DM stand throughout the show.
This powerful addition to the DV-IP family has been developed specifically to offer end users a full desktop High Definition CCTV system that can operate in association with up to 8 of the company's advanced CamVu 2000 mega pixel cameras.
The cost effective NetVu Connected DV-IP HD video server readily supports High Definition CCTV recording, playback and local HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) monitor output. In addition, a built-in TransCoding capability allows bandwidth-optimised images to be streamed to remote operators without impacting the network
In terms of potential customers, the DV-IP HD is being targeted at sectors where the recognition of faces to identify suspects from CCTV images - being viewed and recorded - is a key requirement. Typical applications are expected to include: retail, banking, corporate headquarters, town centre security and MOD installations.
Other features of the DV-IP HD include: 1.5TB - 2TB of storage (depending on model), 8 analogue inputs, Gigabit Ethernet input, HDMI embedded user interface, USB mouse, keyboard interface, IR remote control, DVD writer for archive, remote alarm reporting and dual channel bi-directional audio.
Said Pauline Norstrom, Worldwide Head of Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "With the introduction of the DV-IP HD video server we believe that we are able to deliver a High Definition desktop recording solution which is unmatched in the marketplace.
"Crucially, the DV-IP HD breaks down the barriers which to date have prevented economical high definition recording becoming a reality. Coax cable as a technology is a non-starter for High Definition CCTV, as the resolution available is severely limited by the PAL video standard, and while IP opens the door to high resolution image capture and recording, in practice, this typically means that users are forcing large amounts of data onto the network to record images, potentially crippling the network."The solution provided by the DV-IP HD overcomes these hurdles by allowing high definition recording to be delivered as a single, standalone, solution without necessarily having to transmit the data over the network."
