Vicon unveils HD network video recorder plus management
IP video specialist launches its HDExpress NVR.
Network video systems specialist Vicon Industries had introduced its HDExpress network video recorder (NVR), an IP video platform designed to provide simple viewing and recording of HD video. According to Vicon, the HDExpress records up to 16 channels of 1080P network video and delivers advanced features while requiring no networking knowledge or additional hardware for installation. Users simply connect network cameras to the device’s camera ports and HDExpress detects and configures them while delivering PoE power.
Live and recorded video may be viewed and controlled locally using an HDMI monitor and USB mouse connected to the HDExpress unit, remotely using a web browser, or on smart phones and tablets with a free mobile app available for Apple and Android devices. Advanced features include thumbnail search, alarm logs and motion detection. An administrator dashboard provides easy diagnostics. Free, multi-site software allows users to view and control multiple HDExpress devices from a single interface, supporting up to 64 simultaneous video streams. Varying administrative access levels may be created for multiple users.
The HDExpress is optimized to work with a wide range of 1080P cameras, including many models from Vicon. The NVR is offered in 4, 8 and 16 channel models with a range of storage options, including the ability to use eSATA external storage. “With HDExpress, system cost and complexity are no longer barriers for any customer to benefit from the advantages of a true HD, IP video security solution,” said Bret McGowan, Vicon’s Senior VP, Sales and Marketing.
