SMB camera management
November 2017, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products
Johnson Controls introduced the VideoEdge 1U network video recorder from American Dynamics, a camera management solution for when simple, low-cost installation and scalable video storage capacity is a priority. The VideoEdge 1U NVR’s 16 embedded software configurable Power-over-Ethernet ports make it ideal for small to medium-sized businesses seeking a quick-to-install, cost-effective video recording option.
The VideoEdge NVR supports as many as 32 IP cameras and stores up to 24 TB of recorded video in a small 1U form factor, enabling small to medium-sized businesses to meet their network growth requirements. With embedded PoE switches, users can expect faster installation times as well as reduced hardware requirements and downtime.
Embedded intelligence allows users to receive multiple video streams for live and recorded video, alarm, and meta-data collection, all tailored to different viewing conditions. The end result is superior video with significantly reduced network bandwidth, CPU resources and memory usage. Multicast video streams further reduce the bandwidth required for streaming high-quality video.
Additionally, users can set up analytics on Illustra cameras and other cameras directly from VideoEdge 1U. The system’s analytics capabilities can gather information for countless business and security needs. When used in retail settings, additional point of sale text integration can be used to identify fraud or track cashier competence as well.
“The value gained by leveraging data from VideoEdge 1U NVR’s analytics not only enhances security applications by tracking behaviours but also by capturing consumer metrics and using it to shape business-critical plans and functions,” said Stuart Bettle, video product marketing manager, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “These benefits come in a unit designed with the smaller user’s need for easy installation and unique requirements in mind.”
