Honeywell bridging the gap between DVRs and NVRs

The Fusion IV hybrid DVR Series sets a new standard for recording. Expanding beyond the analogue DVR role, Fusion IV bridges the gap between DVRs and NVRs; it is a full featured hybrid digital recording system. The system is designed to record, search and transmit up to 32 channels of analogue or IP video sources, up to 16 channels of audio and POS/ATM text data. Benefits of the system include significantly expanded support for digital video sources; including IP cameras, network encoders and megapixel cameras. Fusion IV offers up to 32 channels of hybrid (analogue and/or IP) camera support. H.264 implementation provides superior video quality with small file sizes for improved performance across a network. Furthermore, H.264 is now a standard compression option for all cameras recorded on the DVR. The Fusion IV hardware enhancements ensure efficient multi-tasking of simultaneous operations including network cameras, megapixel cameras, point-of-sale and more. Dual video ports have also been added. Relying on the Windows® XP embedded operating system, the Fusion IV provides network security and firewall protection, while eliminating the need to format DVDs before back up. The front panel provides easy access to the standard DVD-RW drive, dual USB 2.0 ports and the four field-replaceable hard drives. Global market adoption of IP and megapixel camera technologies drive the need for new surveillance capabilities offered by the Fusion IV DVR. Supporting both analogue and IP cameras, Fusion IV is ideal for systems requiring transition to IP to maximise the cost-savings benefits associated with IP networking. Additional benefits are realised for systems adding new capabilities such as unparalleled image clarity using megapixel cameras. Applications include educational, municipal and corporate campus environments, large retail with IDM (Integrated Data Manager) point-of-sale integration, and hotels or resorts. When the need is for a hybrid digital recording solution, the solution is the Fusion IV DVR. For more information regarding Fusion, please visit www.honeywell.com/security/uk.

Honeywell announces DVR integration with ESI control room management software
Honeywell announces DVR integration with ESI control room management software

Honeywell recently announced the integration of its Fusion and HRDP Digital Video Recorders (DVR) with European Systems Integration’s (ESI) remote monitoring and remote assistance software. The new compatibility with ESI’s V1(video / client server) and F1 (alarm receiver front-end) central station modules means security installers can offer a comprehensive centrally monitored DVR solution to end users through Honeywell’s Fusion and HRDP product range, and know that the solution will be fully supported within the ESI video monitoring platform. Based on an open protocol approach, the integration allows installers to sell HRDP and Fusion solutions to end users who require a centrally monitored solution. Equally, it means installers and central monitoring stations are in a position to return to customer sites where Fusion or HRDP DVRs have been installed as a classic standalone solution, and sell a supplementary monitoring contract based on ESI’s software. In addition to providing extra revenue, this is also an opportunity to reinforce an installer’s customer relationship and reduce churn. “We are delighted to be in a position to provide integration with ESI’s robust and proven central monitoring software to security professionals using Honeywell’s Fusion or HRDP DVRs,” comments Daniel Wan, UK Marketing Leader, Honeywell Security Group. “In addition to creating new revenue streams for installers, this integration will also provide customers with the flexibility to outsource or monitor surveillance in-house according to their requirements.”“We have worked extensively with Honeywell over several months to develop the integration to ensure the best possible functionality with the Honeywell range for use within remote monitoring applications,” adds Paul Dodds, UK Country Manager, ESI. ESI is a manufacturer of remote monitoring and remote assistance stations that has grown rapidly in the UK and Europe with over 300 installations to date. ESI’s software has been developed over 11 years and offers end users with both video and intruder monitoring on the same platform through the same Central Monitoring Station.
