These entry-level DVRs utilise the latest H.264 video compression algorithm to optimise video storage; and also combine many features of high-end DVR solutions; all the while fully retaining a clear focus on the needs and priorities of cost conscious installations (such as easy set-up, an intuitive user interface, reliable video recording, and high image quality).
The DS-7200HVI-ST/SE series incorporates a maximum 16-channel video and audio input system, with an 8-channel and 4-channel option. This serves to offer high-quality video with a resolution of up to 4CIF. Additionally, these units can accommodate up to 2 SATA hard disk drives with a maximum capacity of 2 TB per drive. With HDD pre-allocation functionality, the DS-7200HVI-ST/SE series can reliably record for extended periods of time (with earlier video files automatically overwritten when the HDDs become full), and dramatically reduce maintenance costs.
Furthermore, in comparison to the earlier DS-7200HVI-S series standalone DVRs, this new DS-7200HVI-ST/SE series utilises an improved GUI; thereby rendering it far more user friendly. Additionally, improved network performance, and encoding and decoding capacity, is enhanced for clearer video display.
Additional features include dual stream, simultaneous VGA and CVBS output, pre-recording and post-recording for motion detection, multiplex operation (which allows simultaneous live view/review/recording), audio in/out, PTZ control, e-mail event notification, and more.
