Samsung Techwin’s new Beyond 1280H series of 1000 TV Lines analogue cameras are equipped as standard with a long list of innovative and technically advanced features which until now, users might have only expected to see built into IP network cameras.
To ensure that customers can gain maximum benefit from the outstanding quality images captured by the eight new analogue models, Samsung Techwin has also introduced new high performance 4, 8 and 16 channel Beyond DVRs which can simultaneously record the extremely high quality 1000 TV lines images in real time across all their channels.
“We have introduced the new Beyond 1280H series of analogue cameras and DVRs in support of those many thousands of CCTV users across Europe who want to cost effectively extend the life of their existing analogue systems,” said Tim Biddulph, Product Manager for the Security Solution division of Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Whilst widespread adoption of video over IP is inevitable, there is nevertheless an almost countless number of existing analogue CCTV systems which are working satisfactorily. End-users may however now need identification grade images which their existing analogue cameras cannot deliver. The good news is that the Beyond series is fully interoperable with current, existing and legacy analogue systems.”
Many of the new highly competitively priced models feature enhanced Wide Dynamic Range which, with performance greater than 120dB, can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas. They are also equipped with SSNR IV, Samsung Techwin’s new generation of noise reduction technology, to deliver high resolution images in night time conditions without any smear or “ghosting”. Other key features include various forms of video analytics, and defog which can improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog.
In addition to the Beyond 4 channel SRD-476D, 8 channel SRD-876D and 16 channel SRD-1676D, which can all record 1000 TV lines images in real time across all of their channels, Samsung Techwin has also introduced the 16 channel SRD-1656D, which has the ability to record in real time, CIF quality images captured by connected cameras. De-Interlace support on each channel ensures sharp, accurate display of still images.
All four new Beyond DVRs, which have a single channel audio output, offer the flexibility to separately configure each of their channels to make best use of the available storage capacity by enabling users to set the specific image quality/resolution required for each camera location. With the exception of the 4 channel SRD-476D which has a single internal HDD, the Beyond series of DVRS have four internal SATA HDDs and each provide the option for extra video storage via two external SATA ports.
The Beyond DVRs benefit from a new ultra user friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) and offer authorised users the option to remotely view live or recorded video from a PC or any Android or IOS supported smartphone or tablet via Samsung Techwin’s license-free SSM, SmartViewer or iPOLiS Mobile monitoring software. A built-in web viewer offers enhanced compatibility via Chrome, Explorer and Safari.
