Digital recorders are a very recent development in the CCTV industry, and it goes without slaying that it is a technology that is not well understood by the security industry. It is, however, common knowledge that digital recording offers many benefits compared to the VCR systems, being faster, more reliable, offering better quality, tremendous flexibility and the ability to perform many tasks at the same time.
Frank Street, suppliers of quality CCTV systems, has announced the introduction of its new DigiNet 2000 digital video recording system. It will be assembling the DigiNet 2000 in South Africa, having secured an agency from Kodicom in Korea. Frank Street will assemble the DigiNet 2000 using 90% local components, with the software and video capture card being supplied by Kodicom.
The DigiNet 2000
The DigiNet 2000 digital video recording system is a PC based system that can record up to 16 cameras. Especially designed to eliminate the maintenance requirements of traditional analogue solutions, Diginet 2000 provides a complete solution to the inherent problems of the image quality deterioration and the changing effects of tapes used in the conventional Video Tape Recording(VTR or VCR) type system.
Fitted with a high-speed recording card the DigiNet 2000 can record at a speed of 3.125 images per camera per second. Motion detection can be set for each camera at a specified region with a selected sensitivity, with the system able to record images of events automatically triggered by the integrated motion detection video sensor or continuously during (and for) a specified period of time.
The Diginet 2000 hard disk is extendable and the recording interval can be adjusted manually as required, allowing the system to record 16 cameras for 28 days on a 12 GByte hard drive. The software allows titling, date and time and the system can be remotely accessed via a telephone line. The system is fully duplex and can accept any type of composite video camera. The system accepts both color and B/W cameras, and is operated via a Windows based applicatiiion, making DigiNet 2000 user friendly and easy to set up.
Says Frank Street's Abie Alie, "DigiNet 2000 can directly replace any conventional 16-camera system operating with a multiplexer and time lapse video recorder. It has been installed in 2,500 banking institutions throughout Korea, and for the past 6 months, we have been supplying the DigiNet 1000 with tremendous success."
