Norbain is pleased to announce that it can now offer customers the Vectis iX family of IP-based video recording solutions, including self-contained network video recorders (NVR) as well as network video software (NVS) for server based systems. Both the NVR and NVS are capable of recording full-HD images from up to 48 cameras simultaneously at 25 frames per second and support resolutions of up to 20 megapixels.

The Vectis iX products feature a modular design that allows them to be accurately matched to the user’s precise requirements. This makes them an ideal and cost-effective choice for use in IP-based CCTV applications of all types – from small retail installations to campus-wide surveillance systems.

All products in the Vectis iX range use the latest H.264 video compression standard to ensure minimum network bandwidth usage. They are compatible with the MPEG4 and MJPEG standards for the convenience of users with existing cameras. In addition, they support the latest ONVIF Profile S standard, which allows them to be used not only with cameras from Siemens, but also with those from approximately 90 third-party manufacturers.

The built-in VSS_SDK (software developer kit) interface allows Vectis iX systems to be integrated easily with the Siemens MM8000 access control and fire safety system. In addition to object detection, the on-board video analytics functionality also offers object removal.

All models feature people counting, which is a major benefit particularly in retail and sports venue applications. NVR models are available in 6, 16, 32 and 48 channel versions. They support an internal recording capacity of up to 24 TB (2 TB for the 6 channel model); additional recording capacity can be added externally. The NVS software solution is available in 8, 16, 32, 48 and 64 channel versions, with storage capacity determined by the configuration of the server.

The Vectis iX video recording solutions are ideally suited for use with the Siemens CMS (Central Management Software) package, which allows users to control and monitor multiple sites from any point on the network. CMS is also compatible with Siemens Sistore analogue video recorders. This makes it easy to upgrade installations by initially operating Vectis iX products alongside existing Sistore devices. The migration to the new platform can then be completed step by step as funds become available.
