Hanwha Techwin introduces Wisenet Q Plug-and-Play PoE NVR solutions
16 April 2020
THE ABILITY to record images captured by 8 MP cameras is among the long list of added value features built into three new Wisenet Q Network Video Recorders (NVRs) developed by surveillance specialist Hanwha Techwin.
The ONVIF-compliant 4, 8 and 16-channel plug-and-play PoE devices, which are supplied with a new intuitive and user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI), are designed to be suitable for virtually any small-to-medium size video surveillance applications which require a cost-effective, robust and reliable video recording and storage solution. As such, they're ideal for those office, retail, warehouse and office-type environments which don't require a high number of cameras, but where end users wish to have the ability to record images captured by ultra-HD cameras.
A dual track recording feature enables the NVRs to simultaneously record two streams of video from each connected camera at different resolutions. Intended to ensure operators are able to rapidly verify what may be occurring at a remote site, this feature facilitates the immediate retrieval of standard resolution images and then enables operators to subsequently review the ultra-high resolution recorded images for post-incident forensic analysis.
Support for H.265, H.264 and MJPEG compression adds to the new NVRs’ bandwidth friendly credentials, as does WiseStream II (a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image). When WiseStream II is combined with H.265 compression, bandwidth efficiency is said to be improved by up to 99% when compared to current H.264 technology.
The NVRs offer real-life practical benefits to system integrators as well as end users. The time installation engineers have to spend on site is minimised as they're able to remotely connect to the devices via a smart phone or tablet without having to set up a complex network. This is done by using P2P and unique QR codes.
In addition, Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality reduces installation time and cost by negating the need to provide power points and separate cabling to each camera location.
The new Wisenet Q PoE NVRs are as follows:
- Wisenet QRN-420S: 4 channels. 1 HDD (maximum 6 TB storage) with up to 40 Mbps network camera recording. 4 PoE ports
- Wisenet QRN-820S: 8 channels. 1 HDD (maximum 6 TB storage) with up to 80 Mbps network camera recording. 8 PoE ports
- Wisenet QRN-1620S: 16 channels. 2 HDDs (maximum 12 TB storage) with up to 128 Mbps network camera recording. 16 PoE ports. Dual monitor display via HDMI and VGA outputs
