Dedicated Micros New BX2 Continuous Archive DVR

The BX2 is a high performance 16-camera digital multiplex recorder capable of a 100pps (PAL) record rate. The system’s advanced recording schedule allows the user to individually program each camera’s recording priority in order to give greater flexibility. This flexibility allows assignation of a higher recording rate to specific cameras on alarm, or allows the configuration of cameras in higher sensitivity areas to record more frequently. BX2 Continuous Archive units have RAID 1 fault tolerance to disk failure. There are 4 hard drives onboard giving 2 months storage with twin 600GB storage banks on its 1.2TB disks. The four integrated RAID1 disks store two identical copies of all recorded data. A pair of the disks can be removed directly from the machine at any time, whilst recording continues unaffected. Recording all data to two disks instead of one also means a failsafe backup is always in place should any disk fail.

Gordon MacSween, Managing Director at Vision Systems, says:

"We are already market leaders in detecting threats with our VESDA range of very early warning smoke detectors and our ADPRO range of video security systems. Our next step will be to further integrate the Millbank voice response products to complement our offering by adding a response capability.

“This may be the automatic announcement of a staged evacuation in the event of a fire or preventing damage or loss by telling an intruder that they have been detected, police called and for them to leave the premises.”

Neil Voce, sales and business development director voice response systems at Vision Systems, says; "We are responding to a need among our customers for an integrated early warning solution.

“We can see significant revenue opportunities to be gained from a truly integrated systems approach over the coming years.”

Dedicated Micros Adds CD Writer To DVRs

Particularly suited to small retailers who need to provide footage to the police on a regular basis, an integral CD writer provides an immediate way to copy both image and audio data off the DVR’s hard disk for a complete record of any given incident.

The new versions offer the same look and feel as the existing Eco4 and D4 models for ease of installation training and use. And since no external CD recorders, SCSI cables or power supplies are required, installation time and costs are kept to a minimum.

Each CD created includes playback software that runs automatically on a standard PC, without needing to invest in any additional equipment or install extra software.

Dedicated Micros' Retail Solutions (RS) software can be supplied with D4 CD – allowing recorded video to be associated with text data from EPOS systems and instantly copied to CD, helping to combat instances of staff fraud such as under-ringing and sweet-hearting.
