DM strengthens entry level DVR range with ECO9 launch

Product Profile

Dedicated Micros is launching Eco9, a 9-channel variant of its Eco family of DVRs which has consistently proved to be a popular option with smaller businesses such as convenience stores.  Interest in the new the Eco9 is extremely high and already Gardiner Security has signed-up to an exclusive agreement with DM to promote and distribute the Eco9 across the UK and mainland Europe.

The Eco9 is priced to compete with traditional VCR/Multiplexer combinations, offering an affordable introduction to the benefits of digital recording for small, often independent, business owners, doing away with the tape management issues associated with traditional analogue CCTV solutions.

As with the Eco4, which was introduced last year, the new ‘plug and play’ Eco9 has been designed with ease of use in mind, having been configured to time-lapse record straight out of the box by automatically detecting connected cameras on power-up.  Covert camera support ensures that staff pilferage can be minimised in a fast moving retail environment, and a spot monitor acts as a visible deterrent.

The Eco9 can record a single camera in real-time (25/30 PPS) while at the same time playing back recorded images locally via powerful GOTO functions, or remotely through a PC using free network viewing software.  An integral CD writer is available for image export for evidential purposes, or if necessary images can be downloaded remotely over a company’s IT network, or internet.

Pauline Norstrom, DM’s Marketing Manager said: “The introduction of the Eco9 gives users an enhanced choice providing a robust, high specification, entry level system, demonstrating that affordable does not have to mean cheap and ineffective.  Eco9’s extra channels mean that more cameras can be supported from the same unit offering future expansion, giving the small business owner peace of mind that they have chosen a reliable long term CCTV solution.”
