New from Wavestore, the British developer of Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS), is its PT-Series Network Video Recorders (NVRs). They come pre-installed with the latest version of Wavestore’s Video Management Software (VMS).
The company says that the PT-Series NVRs are designed to offer recording, management and control for security and video surveillance projects. With the ability to connect up to 48 network cameras per stand-alone unit, they can also be configured into server groups to satisfy large and distributed video surveillance installations, all accessible to an operator via Wavestore’s WaveView client software.
Julian Inman, Head of Product Management at Wavestore, says: “The PT-series enables WaveView to be accessed locally for day-to-day operation simply by plugging a monitor, keyboard and mouse directly into the unit, whilst additional remote connections of authorised WaveView clients can easily be achieved either from a computer or mobile device. With the addition of the PT-Series to our range of NVRs and Hybrid Video Recorders, our Partners can take full advantage of deploying fully scalable solutions that can be administered, managed and controlled on a common VMS platform.”
The PT-series NVRs can accommodate four by 3.5-inch hot-swap hard drives to provide up to 24TB of storage. The makers say that users can typically expect 31 days storage of images from over 40 Full HD cameras being recorded in real-time, 24 hours. Customisable recording rates can be set per channel for both normal and ‘on alarm’ recording and a wide mix of camera types, including 360 degree degree fisheye cameras, can be deployed across an installation.
Available from Wavestore’s network of authorised distributors, the new PT-Series NVRs come with the option to upgrade or expand channels, without having to reinstall the VMS software. Users can choose from Base, Premium or Enterprise VMS levels and purchase the number of camera licenses required for the application at hand. All PT-Series NVRs come with a three-year return to base hardware warranty and come pre-installed with Version 6 of Wavestore’s VMS embedded onto their Linux operating system.
