Vista has introduced the new Viper range which consists of five products that provide a solution for combining multi-format recording devices into a single, centrally controlled platform. The benefit of Viper is that it allows for the flexibility of combining existing and new hardware in order to create a simple platform and seamless system.
Each product plays a role in simplifying the recording system. The Virtual Matrix Controller (VMC) allows the system operator to view cameras from multiple remote Viper NVRs and hybrid DVRs. These remote devices can record CVBS, TVI, AHD or IP cameras. All cameras are displayed to the operator as one single system when using the VMC.
The NVRs and DVRs can also be used as standalone systems. Advanced Smart and Thumbnail search facilities simplify the operator’s task for finding and reviewing recorded footage. The patented WARP function also allows a single NVR to become a master unit, allowing the operator to view, control and set up other Viper devices via its own main monitor output.
Whether used as a combined system or used as standalone recorders, the Viper family offers installers a one stop solution.
Bob Forehand, Vista Product Manager, stated, ‘The Viper family incorporates five product ranges covering both IP and hybrid analogue, allowing the installer to offer their customers a seamless single system to cover both video formats. The addition of the Virtual Matrix Controller that can be used to tie together multiple recorders provides a very intuitive and cost effective single point of control.’
