Quartz, Wavestore’s new compact hybrid 16 channel ‘hybrid’ digital video recorder, is designed to provide a competitively priced recording solution for medium sized video surveillance projects in schools, hospitals, office buildings, manufacturing, car parks, retail environments and a wide range of other applications that can benefit from a small unit that is easy to install, setup and operate.
The compact space saving Quartz, measuring just 96mm x 395mm x 330mm, enables users to record the superb quality images captured by the latest generation of IP network cameras whilst, if required, at the same time recording images from traditional analogue cameras. Images from any combination of up to 16 analogue or IP network cameras, can be recorded simultaneously with a choice of H.264, MxPEG, MPEG-4 or MJPEG compression.
Simple drag and drop function enables each user to create unique multiple display preferences, whilst the Quartz offers an extremely fast search facility to allow users to be able to quickly review recorded images of any incident. The recorded video can be converted to MPEG, Flash Video, AVI, and a wide selection of other formats, whilst users who export video using Wavestore’s native format can benefit from features such as encryption and image authentication.
Wavestore's remote monitoring software allows users to securely monitor real-time live images, or retrieve video recorded, over the network, from either of the Quartz’s two 3.5" internal hard drives, whilst multiple units can be configured into a server group to support large and distributed video surveillance applications.
As is the case with other Wavestore digital recording systems, the Quartz utilises a Linux based open software platform which has proven to be highly reliable, and is supplied with a full one year return to base Warranty.
