HANWHA VISION has launched the SolidEDGE camera, which is the first real solid state drive-based camera available in the market with an embedded Wisenet WAVE VMS server.
There are two models in the range: the PNV-A6081R-E1T and the PNV-A6081R-E2T. Both eliminate the need for an external server. Both also remove the requirement for a cloud subscription to store video footage or high-speed connectivity to upload video to the cloud, thereby leaving the end user in control of their data, which is stored locally on-site.
The SolidEDGE camera runs the Wisenet WAVE VMS on the edge, which means it’s a true server-less solution. The camera meets the growing need for a more efficient and cost-effective solution that ensures security and safety, without the need for a costly and space-consuming server.
This “innovative” system doesn’t require the scheduling of OS and security updates, whereas Windows servers running VMS would do.
The SolidEDGE camera is particularly suited, then, to remote installations where there’s no room for a server or NVR (for example, around ATMs, at solar farms, electricity substations, level crossings, bus stations and smaller independent retail outlets).
Remote access and management
As the SolidEDGE camera is equipped with cloud video management using Wisenet WAVE Sync, end users can remotely access and manage the surveillance system from anywhere using the Wisenet WAVE Mobile App. Video footage and data may be managed on-premise and from the cloud, with end users able to customise their surveillance system to their specific needs.
The SolidEDGE camera runs on the embedded Linux operating system with a powerful hardware system on the edge. The built-in and rugged industrial-grade solid state drive provides additional benefits over traditional surveillance systems, making the solution more reliable and recorded video more secure as there’s no need to stream video on the network between the camera and the recording server or cloud service.
Given that the solid state drive hosts the recording of video, database and WAVE installation files, this ensures that any incident is captured without delay.
Each SolidEDGE camera can connect with up to five additional Hanwha Vision cameras or third party ONVIF-conformant cameras (three with Artificial Intelligence enabled), in turn allowing organisations to easily expand their surveillance systems as requirements evolve. This brings the total number of cameras per SolidEDGE system to six and offers a more customisable and flexible system structure.
The SolidEDGE camera comes with two storage options: the PNV-A6081R-E1T model boasts 1 TB solid state drive storage and the PNV-A6081R-E2T model 2 TB of solid state drive storage. This saves on costs, space and maintenance time.
The built-in solid state drive offers reliable video storage within a wide range of operating temperatures. Operators are afforded further peace of mind with solid state drive ‘Status Management’, which provides information on the health of the solid state drive.
In addition, the SolidEDGE camera has been designed with reinforced durability features including a metal-shielded RJ-45 terminal and enhanced grounding frame structures that protect the camera from transient voltage.
There’s also a built-in air vent that provides water vapour control to prevent condensation, while the hard-coated dome bubble covering the camera realises better resistance to scratches.
