Samsung respond positively to worldwide 1TB HDD shortage

Samsung has taken positive action in response to the worldwide shortage of 1TB HDDs by introducing new models to its H.264 SRD series of DVRs. "The immediate availability of these new models will ensure continuity of supply to our customers during a time when all market sectors, and not just the security industry, are affected by the severe shortage of 1TB HDDs," said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. "A new 500GB storage version, which shares the same features as the other DVRs in the SRD series, offers an easily upgradable and cost-effective solution for those looking for the best quality digital video recording." Samsung has also introduced models which are being supplied without HDDs to give customers the flexibility to purchase additional approved HDDs by way of one of its HDD upgrade kits, which can be easily installed on-site without voiding the warranty of the DVR. These are available as 500GB upgrades and there are currently limited stocks of 1TB or 2TB upgrade kits also available.The eight and sixteen channel models all have built-in DVD drives featuring Virtual Progressive Scan (VPS) which eliminates the problem of blurred edges on moving objects, to provide picture-perfect still frames whilst a built-in web-server allows live and playback viewing options with the ability to back up incidents via a web browser. A dual codec operation delivers different streams for both high performance recording and optimised transmission, and selected models offer both Pelco Coaxitron and Samsung SSVC coaxial control protocols to provide users with full control of camera functions, as well as access to set-up menus from the convenience of a control room.Additional installer and operator friendly features include a multiple language on-screen display and a fully removable back panel so that hard drives can be swapped and upgraded without having to unplug all the cables.  Data from ATM, POS or access control devices can be captured with the text data saved along with associated images to be played back if required at a later date.Available from all Samsung distributors, the new DVRs are offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.

Network friendly entry level 4-channel DVR from Samsung
Network friendly entry level 4-channel DVR from Samsung

Samsung has introduced an entry level 4-channel Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for small retail, office and domestic environments. The SRD-450 provides users with the option to remotely view live or recorded video over the Internet via a browser, even on a smart phone, and thanks to the utilisation of ‘network-friendly' H.264 compression, which is far more efficient than other compression methods; the SRD-450 makes the most of available bandwidth to display quick and clear video. The use of H.264 compression also maximises the amount of video which can be stored on the SRD-450's expandable 500GB internal hard disk drive. To further make best use of the internal hard disk drive, the SRD-450 can be programmed to only record if activity is detected by its Motion Detection feature, whilst recorded video of any important incidents can be easily backed up via a USB output using an easy to operate search facility. Although offered at a budget price point, the compact SRD-450 does not  compromise on quality and is equipped with a range of impressive features including the ability to record high quality CIF video in real time across all channels, with the options to record up to 4-CIF over selected channels, and single channel audio recording. With only five sets of buttons on the front panel and a simple to understand on screen display menu, the SRD-450 has been designed for ease of use. Remotely accessing video over the Internet, for example, is as simple as inputting the DVR's IP address onto a web browser and then entering a user name and password. The SRD-450 features a cool running design that negates the need for a fan resulting in completely silent operation, which makes the SRD-450 ideal for domestic applications where any noise might inconvenience the customer.  As is the case with all Samsung professional security products, the SRD-450 is offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.

The SRD-440 is fully compatible with the free Samsung iPOLiS MOBILE app which can be downloaded from iTunes and the Android market.

The utilisation of ‘network-friendly’ H.264 compression ensures the SRD-440 makes the most of available bandwidth whilst also maximising the amount of video, which can be stored on the SRD-440’s 500GB internal hard disk drive. A built-in USB slot provides a quick and easy way to extract recorded video of any important incidents. A 22 language graphical user interface has been designed to make it easy for users with minimal training to configure and control the SRD-440 and when needed, to take advantage of the wide range of search and playback options.
