Arecont Vision, a provider of IP-based megapixel camera technology, has announced the availability of the AV NVR all-in-one network video recorder series. The new AV NVR is on display at Intersec Dubai 2018, and is the first network video recorder to be offered by Arecont Vision.

Customers have increasingly requested that Arecont Vision provide them with an NVR platform for their small to mid-sized project requirements,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “The new AV NVR will address those specific needs, while our ongoing integration with the industry’s leading hardware and software providers will continue for customer projects of all sizes.”

A free mobile app is available for remote viewing and playback.

Remote surveillance

The AV NVR offers the choice of 8 or 16 channel models (one channel = one camera sensor), each with built-in PoE network switch, customer-replaceable hard drives, and Arecont Vision GUI interface. Smart plug-and-play technology simplifies setup with both Auto Discover and Auto Configuration. Camera licenses are included for a complete all-in-one solution. A free mobile app is available for remote viewing and playback. A power status utility and instant playback capability round out the AV NVR series capabilities.

Both the AV NVR AV800 and AV1600 models offer H.264, H.265, and MJPEG compression. Arecont Vision SNAPstream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology reduces bandwidth without impacting image quality.

The 8 channel AV800 model offers up to 10MP resolution recording per sensor, including 4K resolution and 40MP panoramic cameras. The AV1600 offers 16 channels and up to 5MP resolution recording per sensor.

Western Digital Purple Surveillance storage

For maximum video recording reliability, WD Purple Surveillance hard drives from Western Digital are included in with-drive configurations. No-drive configurations are available for customers wishing to install their own hard disk drives within Arecont Vision recommendations.

The AV1600 could be configured up to 16 channels, using a variety of Arecont Vision camera choices.

The AV800 could be configured any number of ways to support project requirements for single- and multi-sensor cameras,” stated Mr. Donaldson. “For example, an AV800 could support four MicroDome 5MP single-sensor cameras (4 channels), and a SurroundVideo panoramic or Omni multi-sensor camera (4 channels), for a total count of 8 channels. Or six MegaDomes 3MP single-sensor cameras for 6 channels and two MegaView 5MP single-sensor cameras for a final 2 channels. The AV1600 could be configured up to 16 channels in the same manner, using a variety of Arecont Vision camera choices.”

Supports ONVIF type S cameras

Designed for use with Arecont Vision-brand single and multi-sensor cameras, ONVIF type S cameras are also supported. The AV NVR is part of the available products in the Arecont Vision MegaLab integration, test, and support facility. Arecont Vision cameras are integrated and tested with the industry’s leading VMS, video analytics, networking, storage, and other software and hardware through the company’s Technology Partner Program and its subsidiary MegaLab facility. The AV NVR includes a 3-year Arecont Vision warranty.

Arecont Vision executives and team members will be on hand along with the AV NVR and the company’s latest camera products on display at Intersec Dubai, UAE, in the Harco stand (A11). Arecont Vision cameras will also be in the stands of partners Anixter (E33), Axxonsoft (E18), Intelligent Security Systems (D09), Milestone Systems (H28), Norbain SD (E18), and RBH Access Technologies, Inc.
