Vicon introduced its HDExpress™ embedded NVR series at Security Essen 2012

Product Profile

At Security Essen 2012 Vicon introduced with its HDExpress™ a series of embedded plug-and-play Network Video Recorders (NVR) designed specifically for High Definition (HD) IP cameras. There are models with 4, 8 and 16 channels available.

The system includes PoE ports for each camera, allowing the NVR to provide power directly to a maximum of 16 cameras. The software automatically detects and configures network cameras, eliminating the need to program any settings in the camera.

The HDExpress™ is optimized to work seamlessly with Vicon’s V960 and V992 high definition 1080P cameras. All of the features of the camera can be configured directly through the local user interface, including zoom and focus of the lens. The HDMI 1080P/60 Hz output provides high quality multi-camera display.

The high definition graphical user interface provides intuitive controls and is rich with features such as thumbnail searches, event logs, and network connections status dashboard. The operator can choose to use a standard USB mouse or a remote control. Remote access to the NVR is simple with a thin-client HTML interface. iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ smartphone applications are also available.

The embedded Linux® operating system provides a reliable platform, and self-diagnosis features such as HDD S.M.A.R.T and network connection alerts simplify diagnosing problems. Replacement of hard drives is simple with easy access to hard drives.

Features include:

  • 1080P60 (1920 x 1080) real-time recording and display
  • Built in Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) switch
  • No programming of network cameras required
  • Auto notification with self-diagnosis (HDD S.M.A.R.T, temperature, network connection status, fan error, etc.)
  • Onscreen Graphical Interface (GUI) for local control
  • Web interface for remote viewing
  • Mobile phone applications (iPhone® and iPad® or AndroidTM OS)
  • Easy export of video to USB storage devices
