ALARMCORP is now distributing the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid – a new generation of highly reliable network video and audio transmission and recording technology with analytics for both IP and analogue CCTV remote monitoring applications.Building on the heritage of the ADPRO FastTrace, the new ADPRO 3100 Hybrid is a single or multi-site system that monitors and transmits very high quality images (using H.264 compression) for operators within a central monitoring station to quickly assess and take the appropriate action. It also uses server-grade quality hard disks to locally store up to 8 Terabytes of data in the box, and when used in conjunction with ADPRO VideoCentral Platinum management software, provides the most flexible multi-site video security system available.

“With live and recorded high quality video transmission, two-way audio, remote camera control, analytics and flexible integration capabilities, the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid provides early warning of security threats so that the impact can be minimised”

The ADPRO V3100 has been designed with reliability as a key imperative: Server quality hard disks, SMART diagnostics provide early warning of potential hard disk failure, and the operating system uses flash memory so that the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid can transmit alarms even if a hard disk failure occurs. Other features include automated system monitoring of all critical functions, and a secondary communications path if the first should fail.Fully scalable and capable of supporting up to 16 cameras, the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid can manage both Dual codec and Dual stream technologies for totally independent recording and viewing quality settings (per camera). It also features one audio input per video input for synchronised audio recording, and an intuitive web interface that gives authorised users remote access to live and recorded video.The use of H.264 compression technology delivers the highest quality video with the lowest bandwidth. Recording is of evidential quality, with video resolution for IP cameras up to High Definition (HD), and records at up to 25 images per second (PAL) and 30 ips (NTSC). A further feature of the system is that it allows for an extremely fast search through large amounts of recorded video with an innovative post-record metadata motion search capability. Results are presented on a timeline in seconds without large video data transfers across the network.“With live and recorded high quality video transmission, two-way audio, remote camera control, analytics and flexible integration capabilities, the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid provides early warning of security threats so that the impact can be minimised, and any manned guarding efficiently deployed,” says Colin Rogers, global solutions marketing manager at ADPRO.The ADPRO V3100 Hybrid is designed to integrate fully with other ADPRO systems to provide true pro-active security from the edge to the core. An SDK interface is available to support the direct integration with third-party receiving software.
