WQHD resolution DVRs

June 2016 Editor's Choice, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

TeleEye has launched the GN Series, a new generation of DVRs with WQHD resolution. WQHD is a video resolution standard equivalent to 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is also 4 times the resolution of 720p HD. The new GN Series DVRs are capable of recording higher quality video footages than 1080p full HD systems, providing much more useful information for post-incident investigations. Higher resolution videos lead to the requirement of a more sophisticated video compression engine. With this in mind, TeleEye has incorporated an enhanced H.264 video compression technology into the GN DVRs.

“The enhanced H.264 technology is 30% more efficient than ordinary H.264, thus greater video detail can be achieved with less data,” said Dr. Wallace Ma, director of TeleEye Group. “As WQHD is sitting between 1080p and 4K, it is an excellent balance between video clarity and processing requirement in a practical video surveillance system.”

The GN Series comprises two models, the GN6516 and GN6608, which are designed with two opposite approaches that have two distinguished benefits.

i. Shared Network – Simplest installation

GN6516 is designed for projects requiring IP camera data running on an existing LAN. By running video feeds through an existing network infrastructure, it greatly simplifies the installation work that would result in a lower deployment cost.

ii. Dedicated Network – Highest security

GN6608 is designed for projects requiring IP cameras completely separate from the existing LAN. With the TeleEye proprietary 5-layer security protection, GN6608 shields IP cameras from the outside world, ensures the highest security standard and minimises the chance of the video surveillance system being attacked.

GN Series DVRs are designed for complete security needs as they can interface with different types of alarm sensors. When any incident is detected, the DVR would make a connection back to a 7/24 security centre. The operator can inspect the video and respond to the incident swiftly, such as delivering a verbal warning message.

Additionally, GN Series DVRs are fully compatible with all TeleEye video management platforms, including sureSIGHT and sureGUARD, for different application’s requirements. sureSIGHT is designed for monitoring of numerous live video feeds simultaneously, while sureGUARD is purposely built for visual alarm verification in professional security centres.

Highlighted Features:

• WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels).

• Enhanced H.264.

• Hacker resistant.

• PoE support.

• Pre/post alarm image sequence.

• Arm/disarm interface.
