The Holis HD Tribrid video recorders feature up to 12 TB of storage and 1080P real time-recording across all channels Tyco Security Products, part of 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 Tribrid video recorders 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. 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. "Users can also manage their video remotely with the full-featured Holis Go mobile app or Web Client for continual surveillance" Varifocal HD bullet and dome cameras 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 Mike Tabola, Senior Product Manager for Tyco Security Products. “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.” Enhanced video resolution 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.
The new RAID Storage line of servers from American Dynamics allows users to extend archived storage to any VideoEdge NVR Tyco Security Products has released a new version of the RAID storage system for VideoEdge network video recorders, which includes enhancements in the NVRs’ archived storage and improved battery back-up capabilities to significantly decrease system downtime. RAID storage system The new RAID Storage line of servers from American Dynamics allows users to extend archived storage to any VideoEdge network video recorder (NVR). With redundant power supplies and lockable, hot swappable drives, the RAID storage system provides users with high reliability to store critical video and audio longer. An additional battery backup module comes with the storage server for additional redundancy. Each system utilises RAID 5 to minimise video loss and maximise hard drive dependability. Designed for high performance video surveillance, the American Dynamics RAID supports iSCSI and fibre interfaces with quad iSCSI ports and dual fibre ports. Optimised for video surveillance Ideal for mid to large-sized installations or cloud data centers, the American Dynamics RAID storage system provides a cost-effective, reliable storage solution optimised for video surveillance. Available in five different configurations including an 18, 36 and 48 terabyte system with a single RAID array and a 90 terabyte system with dual RAID arrays, users can extend their storage without the need for an additional recorder. For future expansion, users can add up to six additional expansion shelves and be scalable up to 112 hard drives with 672 terabytes of total storage. Each system comes with a three-year warranty. “We are pleased to extend our product line offering our customers greater flexibility and reliability to meet their most demanding storage needs,” said Mike Tabola, Product Manager, Tyco Security Products. “The RAID storage servers have been tested and optimised to provide a superior solution.” Browser-based GUI This new American Dynamics RAID storage server utilises an intuitive browser-based GUI for simple server management. Users can remotely manage network settings, fiber and iSCSI parameters and RAID volumes, minimising time necessary for set up and maintenance. With an American Dynamics RAID storage system, American Dynamics users will have one unified solution to administer and monitor video storage and recorders. This single user interface reduces the complexity and cost of integrating disparate solutions.
