IDIS, South Korea’s largest surveillance manufacturer, has launched is latest network video recorder, the DR-1204P, which packs an array of essential and easy to use features.

DR-1204P features and functions

The DR-1204P supports up to 5MP high definition (HD) recording and one month’s footage retention and utilises IDIS Intelligent Codec, delivering significant savings on bandwidth and storage particularly when used with Motion Adaptive Transmission (MAT), in areas where there is little to no motion and out of hours.

In addition, IDIS DirectIP™ solutions reduce the burden of implementation and training time, while ensuring lower maintenance and energy costs and an extended product lifecycle. The new 4-channel NVR also comes with totally cost-free video management software (VMS), IDIS Center™ and mobile apps—meaning absolutely zero licencing costs without any ongoing service or maintenance fees, ensuring the IDIS signature low total cost of ownership. All of this results in margin protection for installers and lower up front and on-going costs for end users.

Future-proof scalability means customers can add more IDIS NVRs and cameras for business expansion

Compatibility with residential settings

Dr Peter Kim, Senior Director at IDIS, said: “The DirectIP DR-1204P 4-channel Full HD Recorder is the embodiment of the IDIS longstanding commitment to meeting ‘any surveillance need, of any size.’ Ideally suited for small and medium-sized environments—the small form factor and low-noise operation make it compatible with even residential settings—the DR-1204P provides a powerfully efficient, truly plug-and-play way to gain the full complement of features and benefits offered by IDIS’s award-winning DirectIP technology, without the costs and complications of an overdesigned solution for a limited need.”

The DR-1204P has a truly compact and sleek design and features super smooth and intuitive monitoring with a variety of indoor and outdoor cameras to cover a range of applications. Its future-proof scalability means customers can simply add more IDIS NVRs and cameras for business expansion, making this IDIS DirectIP solution easily expandable for future surveillance upgrades.

Multiple locations, one application

Customers can manage multiple locations in one application with IDIS Center’s intuitive and user-friendly interface; plus, they can see what is happening 24/7 with live HD view via a smartphones or tablets while on the move.

As Dr Kim further notes: “The benefits of the smaller DR-1204P accrue throughout the security buying chain. For integrators and installers, it’s crucial that smaller projects, such as 4-camera installations, take minimal time for installation and configuration, in order to maximise margin. The incorporation of DirectIP’s simplicity and true plug-and-play technology (with auto recognition and configuration) ensures this.

“For end users, the benefits are even more pronounced. The DirectIP DR-1204 is simple to use and easy to operate with an exceptionally low total cost of ownership—including the inclusion of IDIS’s powerful IDIS Center VMS free of charges, licencing fees, or maintenance costs - and the fully scalable DR-1204 supports end-user growth, capable of incorporating any number of configuration of IDIS DirectCX and DirectIP technologies, including powerful IDIS Super Fisheye cameras with dual-side dewarping.”
