SMAVIA is a recording technology which is based on 25 years of experience and competence in professional video security technology. It enables the recording of video images and streams in a large variety of image compression and transmission codecs (H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG). In addition to standard definitions, SMAVIA also supports Full HD (1080p) and up to 8 megapixel.
“For the first time in our company’s history, we are in a position to market our expertise in the realm of recording technology uncoupled from any given hardware platform: SMAVIA is available for purchase in a software only variant. As the name suggests, customers only buy the software – this includes both the recording and the management software – and can then install it on their own servers. In addition, there are special appliances, that is to say Dallmeier hardware platforms, on which the software has already been preloaded,” is how Dieter Dallmeier explains the new concept.
Standalone software or preloaded
The SMAVIA Recording Server Software can be used on a wide range of different hardware platforms; either on special video recording servers made by Dallmeier or as a standalone software on standard servers or PCs. SMAVIA is compatible with both Linux and Windows.
The corresponding management software SMAVIA Viewing Client offers the perfect interface for the comfortable processing of live pictures and recorded pictures. In conjunction with the Security Management System SeMSy SMAVIA supports cascaded recording systems with 2000 video channels and more.
SMAVIA is compatible with ONVIF: ONVIF-compliant cameras can be configured and recorded with SMAVIA.
PRemote-HD function supported
SMAVIA also supports the proven PRemote-HD function. PRemote-HD is a method developed by Dallmeier that uses transcoding to enable the transmission of HD and megapixel streams even at low bandwidths. PRemote-HD is particularly useful for locations where images need to be recorded at highest quality but have only a low-bandwidth network available, for example DSL networks with a 128 Kbit upload.
As opposed to standard transmission methods such as dual streaming that allow users to only change quality settings for the transmission of live images, PRemote-HD also offers a bandwidth-saving transmission of recorded images. Therefore, it is not only possible to view live images, but also to evaluate recordings over great distances in highest resolution.
The SMAVIA licensing model is attractive because no licence is required for the Viewing Client. The entire handling of software variants and licence dongle is eliminated. The licensing is based centrally on the Recording Server.
