Sanyo launches new hard disk digital recorder

August 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

At the recent CeBIT 2002 exhibition, Sanyo demonstrated that by integrating the new hard disk recorder with a LAN-card into a network-solution, customers could control a security system with just an IP address over the Internet. Customers had the opportunity to control the cameras installed at the Sanyo factory in Japan as well as at the Sanyo European headquarters in Munich with an easy click on the screen.

Within the CCTV industry in South Africa, sales of the DSR-3000P and MPX-CD163/93P have been successful. To date, the units have been installed within the retail industry, the entertainment industry as well as a new convention centre.

Picture quality improvement

The DSR-3000P uses motion JPEG compression. The new processing method is effective in resolving problems associated with analog recording, such as smudges, vertical drift, jitters and provides clear surveillance pictures.

Digital transport terminals

The DSR-3000P is equipped with digital video in/out terminals to accommodate data transfer to and from the newly developed Sanyo multiplexer MPX-CD163/93P without any conversion into an analog signal. The digital-to-digital connection is a key element in reducing video signal deterioration and achieving a high resolution of more than 520 TV lines. The unit also includes a JPEG encoder-decoder, which provides an interface with conventional composite video signals and the Y/C separate video signal.

Simultaneous recording and playback at 50 fields/s (full movie)

Sanyo's unique technology has made it possible to record and playback moving pictures simultaneously without any interruption at 50 fields/s. This is useful for making a back-up recording on another VCR, from the HDD, while continuing to record surveillance pictures.

Compatible with PCs

The DSR-3000P allows the user to copy recorded data onto compactflash or a microdrive, which allows data to be easily transferred to a PC. A PCMCIA LAN card, offers a LAN connection (Ethernet 10Base-T) with which any PC in the network can be used to monitor and set up the DSR-3000P. Setting passwords can control the access level. By using a PC SCSI card, the user can make back-up copies of video and audio data from the built-in HDD on to a DAT recorder.

Distribution via e-mails

Since recorded images are in JPEG format, it is possible to attach images to e-mails or other electronic documents without further processing. This offers a quick and easy solution in sharing information with many people. For more information about this product visit Although Sanyo SA is situated in Johannesburg, demonstrations can be arranged through our sub-distributors who have offices in all the main centres of South Africa.
