Toshiba Says ‘Hybrid Recorder’ Can Bridge Analog to IP Gap

Offers the flexibility to record analog cameras at 480 fps as well as IP network cameras, to reduce total cost-of-ownership

Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group, a unit of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., says its new EHV embedded hybrid recorder can provide a cost-effective path to bridge the gap between analog to Internet protocol video recording.

The EHV operates best when used with surveillance systems running 16 cameras or less, Toshiba says. The EHV offers the flexibility to record analog cameras at 480 fps as well as IP network cameras, so it reduces total cost-of-ownership, the firm adds.

The recorder has state-of-the-art H.264 video compression maximizes network bandwidth efficiency while providing the right level of integration with new and existing infrastructure investments, Toshiba says. In addition, advanced system capabilities enable the user to simultaneously record and remotely access live views and playback video recorded from up to 16 cameras. Toshiba mobile apps permits the remote access of video on Android devices, Apple iPhones and iPads, and Blackberry.

Compared to traditional recorders, the EHV’s embedded CPU design offers a consistently higher level of security against network attacks, along with the benefit of lower maintenance requirements by eliminating the need to install software patches and anti-virus updates, the firm says. The recorders are compatible with Toshiba Surveillix SCS video management software and MySurveillix for remote access and multi-site deployments for a complete surveillance solution.
