Panasonic Security Systems has introduced the i-Pro WJ-ND400 NVR Series, a network video recorder that offers the image quality of IP camera-based video surveillance systems.
The WJ-ND400 can record up to 64 network cameras simultaneously with multi-format recording in MPEG-4 and JPEG formats to deliver recording performance as good as high-resolution IP cameras, according to company representatives.
The WJ-ND400 offers metadata-asociated video motion detection for fast search capabilities, as well as 2x and 4x digital zoom on live or recorded video. It also provides Panasonic camera control for pan/tilt, zoom, focus, brightness, preset position and auto mode functionality with quick IP setup for Panasonic i-Pro network cameras. Users can install up to nine 1-terabyte, hot-plug hard disk drives for on-board storage, while up to 16 clients can monitor and control the WJ-ND400 simultaneously.
In addition, eight recording programs can be set for each individual camera, with camera assignment of one to eight groups for easier browsing, company representatives said.More information
