The introduction of ever higher resolutions in video surveillance has been enhanced by the introduction of H.265 compression technology. Driven by forces in the consumer sector, the new algorithm also offers a wide range of benefits to the security market. IDIS claims that it launching the ‘world’s largest range’ of H.265 devices.
IDIS has announced that it is to launch a range of H.265 plug-and-play IP cameras and network video recorders (NVRs), as well as other progressive technologies designed specifically for enterprise-level surveillance.
The launches include a new H.265 range comprising a comprehensive series of HD1080p cameras and NVRs claimed to deliver up to a 50 per cent saving on storage space. The H.265 devices also support a dual codec, meaning that the NVRs can operate using a combination of H.264 and H.265 simultaneously. This will also make the H.265 range backward compatible for customers with earlier IDIS H.264-based technologies.
There will also be an IDIS intelligent codec, which the manufacturer promises will be an advancement on H.265. It is claimed to optimise focus points and deliver savings of more than 65 per cent on bandwidth and storage needs.
The company also plans to offer IDIS VA in the Box video analytics, including people counting, heat mapping, queue management and ANPR.
New enterprise-level solutions include a 64-channel HD NVR, the DR-8364, that features 800Mbps throughput, dual codec, redundant power, RAID (1, 5 and 10) and a hot swap hard drive.
There will additionally be an enterprise server solution with built in 128-channel video management software, DAS storage, redundant power, hot swap and RAID.
This will be accompanied by IDIS Solution Suite, a highly scalable and modular VMS that delivers customised feature sets including recording, backup, redundant recording, failover and video wall services.
IDIS SmartFailover with 24-hour SmartSave allows failover protection in the event of a network disruption. IDIS cameras begin recording to an on-board SD card, and once the camera-to-NVR connection is restored, the NVR resumes recording and the footage from the camera’s SD card is automatically transfered to the NVR. The SD card will record at a pre-configured profile until 50 per cent of the card’s capacity is used, after which the IP camera automatically controls recording profiles to guarantee 24-hour recording.
