DigiNet a winner for Frank Street

December 2001 Surveillance

Frank Street's product of the year is the DigiNet digital video recorder. To date the company has sold over 300 units and has over 700 units on site.

The DigiNet DVR was introduced into the SA market three years ago. DigiNet units are assembled at Frank Street's premises and are custom-built for installers according to specifications provided by the end user. Frank Street has qualified engineers in both the computer and networking fields to assist both its customers (installers and system integrators) and end-users.

Upgrades to the DVR software are done every three months and are available free of charge to installers. "We have also followed a principle of listening to our customers as to the features that are required when it comes to the DigiNet DVR and implemented these features to our next generation DigiNet DVRs," says Frank Street's Abie Ali. "We found that this has given us the edge in the market as we are the number one distributor when it comes to digital video recorders.

"Digital technology has brought users a new concept of security, while also improving efficiency and reducing the capital cost of maintenance," continues Ali. Taking this into consideration Frank Street took the bold step of introducing this technology into the South African market almost three and a half years ago. We have upgraded functions, for example image storage, event searching, image verification, faster LAN speeds and other key CCTV performance factors in DigiNet DVRs."

Features include:

* Recording speed: 100 f/s - picture size 768x576.

* Scheduled recording: motion, continuous, sensor.

* Image authenticity; water mark.

* Remote connection - LAN, ISDN speeds. The DigiNet DVR can be set to operate both on LAN and ISDN, or PSTN simultaneously. LAN speed of up to 240 f/s for 16 cameras and ISDN speeds of 10 f/s.

* Motion tracking - This is a function that enables the Speed Dome camera to track the moving object when there is any activity in the selected area.

* E-map - electronic map (BMP) to indicate positioning of cameras on site.

* Intelli-search.

Some of the current customers using DigiNet systems include: Denel, NamiTech, JSE, Edgars, EarlyBird Chickens, Woolworths and KFC outlets. The DigiNet series will soon be available using the Windows 2000 and XP operating systems and will be upgraded using the Pentium 4 CPUs.
