The miniature DVR is here

December 2004 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The miniaturisation of digital video recorders (DVRs) has been the dream of many investigators who have had to deal with bulky units, tapes or removable hard disks.

The D-V56 from Video Domain is a standalone palm-size DVR combining digital recording and advanced video motion recording (VMD) which addresses such needs and even enhances them with the use of memory cards as the storage media, eliminating the 'mechanical' devices that have shown a high failure rate. The memory card is a solid-state device that does not require day-to-day user intervention.

The video resolution and frame rates are selectable according to the user needs.

Up to a week of recording can be achieved, using VMD capabilities (capacity of over 100 000 recorded images).

The recording can be triggered by the VMD and/or by external trigger or by a designated panic button using the remote control supplied with the D-V56.

The remote control can be used for arming/disarming the unit or as a panic button.

The D-V56 is supplied with Windows and Pocket PC applications that enable playback of recorded images at multiple speeds; fast search by time or by event; and search of images using a thumbnails images layout.

The software has an export utility that automatically exports the contents of the memory card onto a CD.

The DVR has RS232/RS485 communication ports enabling the unit to communicate with or via a Gateway with the IP-based devices.

Emergency Reaction Services is the sole distributor for Video Domain products in South Africa.
