DVR offers more storage space

August 2003 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The Pelco DX3100 comes packaged with a proprietary modified 5:1 MPEG compression in order to utilise less hard disk space to store the same amount of video. Additionally, the DX3100 comes standard with an event storage device that enables users to capture up to 16 images with a pushbutton, allowing storage of up to 300 images on a single, 3,5" floppy disk.

A complete set of front panel controls and a handheld infrared (IR) controller complement the equally functional remote RX software. During live viewing, users can select single, 3 x 3 or even 4 x 4 displays to keep informed of all activities. The RX software allows you to create groups of cameras from multiple remote Dx3100s and view up to 16 channels of video at the same time.

The playback mode, again accessed by a single button on the front panel, provides an easy-to-use interface. It prompts the user to input the time and date and goes to that date for immediate review. All the functions of the DX3100 are accessible from the front panel and are also operational from the included IR controller.

An optional external IR receiver can be connected to the back of the DX3100 which allows the unit to be mounted in another equipment room up to 16 m away and still be controlled by the IR remote. Up to 100 DX3100 units mounted in close proximity can be controlled from a single, handheld IR-remote.
