|DV-IP ATM Express DVR delivers faster, and more efficient CCTV video and text integration|
Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - announces the launch of its compact, next generation, DV-IP ATM Express DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to deliver faster, lower power, and more efficient CCTV video and text integration. The DV-IP ATM Express system, which can be networked or used as a stand-alone solution, is targeted primarily at the banking sector for Automated Teller Machine (ATM) protection and has been designed, from the start, to cope with the confined conditions of an ATM. Crucially, the DV-IP Express ATM is built around an embedded operating system for enhanced reliability and network security - important requirements in this critical area.
The key features of the new 4-channel DV-IP ATM Express include: true global record rates of up to 100pps (PAL) and 120pps (NTSC) across the unit; a compact footprint of only 246 mm by 125 mm; low power demands; the potential - when combined with Dedicated Micros' new ATMi (interface module) - to readily capture and process transaction data which can be recorded with the video footage. The DV-IP ATM Express' ability to offer live and post event analysis of transactions through a text search engine can help, for example, to resolve issues regarding cash withdrawals.

Access to the unit's interface, from a local display, means that the DV-IP ATM Express can be configured and controlled even without network connectivity. The DV-IP Express is also able to transmit footage over low bandwidth links, using trans-coding so that image streams can be tailored to suit the viewer's bandwidth requirements, whilst multi-mode recording supports the dynamic switching of the resolution, record-rate and compression per camera.
From a user standpoint, the DV-IP ATM Express brings the benefits of Dedicated Micros' enhanced GUI (Graphic User Interface) to ATM protection. A video timeline and colour-coded soft key operation are now offered as standard plus Point & Go telemetry control of cameras such as Dedicated Micros' Oracle dome
. As the DV-IP ATM Express incorporates NetVu
connected technology, this ensures - particularly for larger scale installations - that it is fully compatible with a wide range of CCTV products such as the DV-IP decoder
, DV-IP server, NetVu console, HighVu excel
and NetVu observer. The key benefit here is that a user can bring all of this, diverse surveillance infrastructure, into a single, unified, viewing platform.
Apart from the banking role, the DV-IP ATM Express is suitable for retail outlets such as supermarkets and convenience stores where there is a requirement to monitor the Point of Sale (POS) area and in-store cash points. In addition, there is the potential, given its small size and low voltage for the DV-IP ATM Express to be deployed to meet covert or short-term security requirements.
Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros said: "Given the enhanced features built-in to the flexible DV-IP ATM Express, we anticipate that the take-up will be even greater than the current DV-IP ATM unit, which has already been deployed successfully in thousands of bank branches worldwide."
"Over the years at Dedicated Micros we have established a strong working relationship with ATM manufacturers and this continues with the new ATMi (interface module), used in conjunction with the DV-IP ATM Express, which supports both Diebold and NCR protocols."

"It is important to note that many of the enhancements we have introduced, such as the DV-IP ATM Express' compact size, have been made possible by the capabilities unlocked through the adoption of the 'System-on-Chip' CW5631 Visual Signal Processor (ViSP) from our sister company ChipWrights - also part of AD Group. This access to in-house 'silicon' has given us complete control over the development of this embedded product, from both a software and hardware standpoint - something we believe is unparalleled in the industry. In addition, our PowerScript bespoke application tool means that, should the need arise, it will be possible for installers, systems integrators and end users to readily tailor DV-IP ATM Express' solutions to meet their specific needs."
