THE NEW NDAA compliant Wisenet Pentabrid video recorders just launched by Hanwha Techwin are designed to extend the life of existing analogue-based CCTV, while also providing a smooth and cost-effective migration to an IP network-based video surveillance solution.
Combinations of analogue or IP cameras up to 4K ultra HD can be connected to the new Wisenet Pentabrid 4, 8 and 16-channel video recorders with a simple onboard software switch enabling end users to convert any channel from analogue to IP as and when required.
The new recorders – which are ONVIF Profile S conformant and supersede existing NDAA non-compliant Pentabrid devices – are equipped with a long list of practical features, such as dual track recording, multiple monitor output and the ability to create user groups. They also support a wide range of intelligent video analytics including audio, face, de-focus, enter/exit and camera tampering detection, which trigger a variety of actions when an event occurs, such as moving a PTZ camera to a pre-set position or automatically sending e-mail alerts to specified personnel as well as directly to the Wisenet Mobile App.
Minimised installation time
Installation time is minimised with engineers using P2P and unique QR product codes to remotely connect to the recorders via a smart phone or tablet without having to set up a complex network. The recorders can also be easily configured to match an end user’s requirements with the help of an intuitive interface and an installation Wizard.
Operators can take full advantage of the NVRs’ functionality with the help of UX 2.0, a brand new user interface which offers zoom in/out and drag and drop support and a timeline preview feature, as well as enabling all event settings to be edited in a single window.
GDPR compliance support
Security personnel can apply bookmarks to prevent important video from being overwritten, with the NVRs programmed to automatically delete the bookmarked video after a defined time period to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
The model numbers of the Wisenet Pentabrid video recorders are as follows:
*Wisenet HRX-434: Four channels. One internal SATA HDD
*Wisenet HRX-435: Four channels. Two internal SATA HDDS
*Wisenet HRX-835: Eight channels. Four internal SATA HDDS
*Wisenet HRX-1632: 16 channels. Four internal SATA HDDS
Each HDD has a maximum capacity of 6 TB.
“These new NDAA recorders have been introduced to offer support for the countless existing analogue legacy systems which are still in use,” explained Uri Guterman (head of product and marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe).
Guterman added: “As well as being able to record images captured by Wisenet cameras which are transmitted without any latency at distances of up to 500 metres using standard coax, they will also help to facilitate the transition to a pure Wisenet IP video surveillance solution when an end user wishes to do so and, if required, support cameras from selected other manufacturers.”
