It used to be that if you wanted to remotely view and digitally store surveillance images from a multi-camera system, you would need: A) A remote access system; B) a camera multiplexer; C) a time-lapse VCR, and D) an unlimited supply of videotapes. But not any more! Now you can get the capabilities of all those products in one with just one EchoVue 8-Channel Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
EchoVue 8-Channel Digital Video Recorders have no tapes to maintain, replace, or rewind. That means they can be set up once and virtually forgotten about until you have to review video footage. Its robust 80GB hard drive allows continuous recording for up to 2 to 4 weeks under the most common recording conditions. Recording time varies depending on quality, number of cameras recorded and recording rate. When the available hard drive storage space is used, the EchoVue 8-Channel Digital Video Recorder will automatically record over the beginning of the video. No more worrying about rewinding or changing tapes, or replacing them as they wear out.
Simultaneous Playback and Recording
Another great feature of the EchoVue 8-Channel Digital Video Recorder that you can't get from an ordinary time-lapse VCR is the ability to view recorded video while the system continues to record. For example, you can view a specific time, date and camera number without having to stop the recording. Search functions during playback allow frame-by-frame viewing, fast playback, and playback of alarm events.
Thanks to EchoVue software, you'll also be able to monitor the camera site remotely over the Internet. This allows users to view and download both live and recorded images from anywhere in the world you can access the Web. If equipped with pan/tilt cameras, the system will even let you control where in the room the camera is being aimed.
Easy Access to Front Panel Control
Operating and programming the EchoVue is effortless with the easily accessible front control panel. This makes it easy for you to place the DVR in locations where you don't have easy access to the rear of the equipment.
Built-in 8-Channel Multiplexer
A quad/switching display of live video from all four cameras can be viewed during recording.
Alarm Trigger or Continuous Recording
Recording can be done continuously, for a scheduled time in a 24-hour period, or on an alarm input basis. Each camera has its own alarm input for alarm-activated recording. Using a combination of these programmable features allows the user to extend the total recording time.
The EchoVue uses password protection to guard against unauthorized or unintentional recording or playback.
Embedded Linux Operating System (O/S)
EchoVue has much higher reliability than PC based DVR due to its high performance CPU(32BIT RISK CPU) with the Embedded Linux OS.
Live view, playback and network transmission can be performed while recording.
SCSI Port for external back-up device
