Hikvision continues its highly-successful HD-SDI DVR series with its newest edition: the high-end HD-SDI DVR series. Bolstered by the success of the previous cost-effective HD-SDI DVR series (DS-7200HFHI-ST 720p DVRs and DS-7200HFHI-SE 1080p DVRs) in June, Hikvision is proud to introduce the DS-8100HFHI-ST with HD-SDI technology to allow uncompressed and non-packetised Full HD 1080P video over analog cabling with no lag time.
While many manufacturers have joined this HD-SDI product competition, Hikvision’s DS-8100HFHI-ST series stands out from the crowd by supporting up to 16-ch video inputs (4-ch and 8-ch are also available) with real-time recording at a resolution of 1920x1080p@30fps across all channels. This offers customers the capability to monitor larger arenas (such as banking, gambling, and traffic environments) where IP systems may not be currently suitable, but the need for crystal-clear images are. As well, simultaneous HDMI and VGA outputs are supported with a high definition display of 1080P.
The DS-8100HFHI-ST allows up-to 8 SATA HDDs, with up-to 4TB capacity for each disk. Furthermore, this model features an eSATA interface to connect with an external hard disk for recording or backup; as well as dual gigabit network interfaces with additional functionalities such as load balance and network fault tolerance. This series offers flexible alarm handling, camera control, remote management capabilities and mobile phone surveillance.
Apart from this new DS-8100HFHI-ST series, and the recently released cost-effective HD-SDI DVR series, Hikvision also will introduce a mid-end HD-SDI DVR series to the market – the DS-7300HFHI-ST – to complete its HD-SDI DVR product line. This model shares the majority of the same features with the DS-8100HFHI-ST; however, it can only support up-to 4 SATA HDDs and one gigabit network interface. Now, regardless of entry level or high-end, Hikvision’s HD-SDI DVRs now offers every customer a solution to fit their needs.
