Johnson Controls introduces its HD Video Solution, a new value-based solution that provides superior video quality while leveraging analogue infrastructure. The cost-effective Holis HD Tribrid Video Recorders support SD analogue cameras, Illustra Essentials IP cameras, and a brand-new line of HD cameras, allowing customers to achieve excellent video quality never before attained over coax.
Holis HD video recorder features
Available in 4, 8, and 16-channel models, the recorders feature intuitive search, record, zoom and export functions, as well as all channel synchronous real-time playback for simplified post-event forensics. With support for H.264 dual-stream video compression, the Holis HD Tribrid Video Recorders feature up to 12 TB of storage and 1080P real time-recording across all channels.
Combined with the new American Dynamics HD camera portfolio which includes fixed and varifocal Bullet and Dome Cameras, the HD video solution provides an excellent alternative to IP cameras and allows users to upgrade their system over time while protecting their CCTV investment.
High definition analogue surveillance
The new fixed HD bullet and mini-dome cameras boast 3.6mm fixed lenses and provide up to 1080p video resolution (1920 x 1080) in an uncompressed format over the same standard coaxial cable that is used for standard CCTV cameras. Where most dome cameras operate on two axes, the fixed mini-dome’s 3-axis feature has a much wider field of view.
“Our cost-effective HD video solution
The varifocal HD bullet and dome cameras include a 2.7-12mm motorised lens and feature Smart Infrared for recording over 196 feet away in total darkness. The cameras are waterproof, rated IP67, and feature WDR making them an ideal solution for applications with volatile weather or lighting conditions.
“Our cost-effective HD video solution provides an ideal migration path for small to mid-sized sites looking to leverage their investments in analogue but add on higher resolution cameras as their needs evolve,” said Stuart Bettle, Video Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “Users can also manage their video remotely with the full-featured Holis Go mobile app or Web Client for continual surveillance, no matter how widespread their facilities.”
HD analogue video applications
Leveraging the well-known benefits of HD technology that include reduced installation costs, lower cyber-attack risks, and minimised complexity, the Tyco Security Products HD Video solution is an ideal solution for customers who:
- Currently have analogue but are looking to expand or increase video resolution
- Consider price a major factor
- Are installing a new system and seeking analogue solutions
- Have a maximum need of 16 cameras
- Have limited networking experience
The combination of the new Holis HD Tribrid Video Recorders and American Dynamics HD cameras provides the ultimate in flexibility and plug and play capabilities that are ideal for small to medium-sized businesses.
