Honeywell Video introduces affordable digital video recorder for small to midsized businesses

Product Profile

The new HRDE 4x4 is a four-channel, entry-level embedded digital video recorder using MPEG4 and real-time recording on all four cameras.  This is complemented by four corresponding audio channels, providing synchronised audio/video recording and playback. 

The HRDE 4x4 is available in 80GB and 160GB digital storage versions and is ideal for factories, service stations, petrol stations, small dealerships, retailers, restaurants, pubs, fast food chains and other sites where counter space is limited and up to four areas of coverage are desired.


  1. Embedded real-time operating system brings the benefit of mission critical reliability of the unit.
  2. Appliance type of DVR allows the following features/benefits:
    • Fast start/reboot time allows the unit to start recording shortly after it has been powered up.
    • OS stored on a FLASH memory chip directly on the motherboard reduces the chance of failure.
    • OS is not susceptible to virus attacks – not a Windows based DVR.
  3. Intuitive front panel controls for easy record, search and playback of recorded video clips. 
  4. Ethernet connectivity and remote access software that allows access to the DVR from anywhere via Internet or LAN.
  5. Support for a fixed IP address, DHCP and DDNS – flexible configuration for easy integration with existing IT infrastructure.
  6. MPEG4 compression — modern compression algorithm allows a good balance between video quality and storage capacity. 
  7. USB front panel interface allows easy copy of evidence video to USB Stick.
  8. Small footprint enclosure to fit in limited countertop/shelf space. 
  9. User selectable resolution, frame rate and video quality for adapting to different customer requirements.

The new HRDE 4x4 can be purchased from ADI-GARDINER
