Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has launched Blazer Pro, an all-in-one high-end server solution designed specifically to meet the needs of medium to large camera count, mission critical surveillance network projects.
Combining Hikvision’s powerful video management system software and data storage in to one physical server solution, Blazer Pro is capable of handling up to 128 or 256-channels. Catering for any large to mid-size surveillance application, the all-in-on server not only performs basic functions like recording, live view, playback, and alarm management, but also optional advanced functionality such as ANPR, business intelligence, and people counting.
Suitable for large-scale and critical surveillance projects such as shopping centres, transportation hubs, casinos, town centres, utility sites and financial applications, Blazer Pro meets the highest demands for features and reliability.
Fail proof backup system
Utilising an industry-leading dual boards design, the all-in-one solution ensures a fail proof backup system with the server board and storage board working independently so that in the advent of VMS server failure, normal recording, preview and playback functionality remain unaffected. The storage board adopts the stable Linux architecture, providing more dependable operation.
“Hikvision continues to innovate in security technologies that provide users with peace of mind and ease of use during operation”
In a project with several local NVRs performing local recording and utilising Blazer Pro as the central platform managing those NVRs, if a local problem occurs with an NVR or it is removed (stolen), all is not lost, as the Blazer Pro unit will retain the key IP channels data from that local site. This fail-safe solution is facilitated by key IP channel streams being simultaneously transmitted in real-time for recording, from the local NVR, to the central Blazer Pro server. With this Hikvision solution, Blazer Pro ensures the safety of key local IP channels data.
Hikvision’s Blazer Pro boasts many advanced video footage and system safety technologies, including Flexible User Management, which allows users to prioritise access for management and personnel – to ensure that staff members can be allocated an appropriate system access authority. Blazer Pro connects previously separated NVR/DVR sites together with centralised management.
Providing effective system awareness and identification, Blazer Pro’s alarm management interface is a simple and friendly interface that displays real-time performance and alarm notification, making it easier to identify an alarm, locate relevant video and associated information in a single window.
“Hikvision continues to innovate in security technologies that provide users with peace of mind and ease of use during operation. The new Hikvision Blazer Pro VMS server solution ensures any investment in a large camera network will be supported with reliable, simple and effective control functionality,” said Keen Yao, VP of International Business Center at Hikvision.
