Porta Systems has announced the release of a new Touch Screen DVR and CCTV Distributed video system that the company claims deliver enhanced performance and ease of use while ensuring critical protection and flexibility to client’s CCTV system.
Porta Systems designs, manufactures, markets and supports communication equipment used in public and private telecommunications, video and data networks.
The new Touch1600 touch screen DVR was designed to meet the unique demands of a client’s security application with the inclusion of user friendly, flexible and feature-rich hybrid analog/IP solution via a 17 inch all-in-one DVR.
Porta Systems said the Touch1600 technology provides accuracy and sensitivity to the user’s touch while offering outstanding durability and resistance to contaminants such as dirt and liquids.
Also, the company said the DVR can support an unlimited number of users with separate passwords and levels of security.
The system supports 16 video and 4 audio input channels and can be set up to zone each camera in the vicinity individually. It features a 2 zone detection system providing much more accurate people counting facility and as detection based system it can also be used for vehicle counting.
The company’s distributed video system is a unique design that transmits up to four independent CCTV video signals over a single four pair CAT5 or better UTP cable. The distributed video kit supplies four CCTV video baluns that allow up to four cameras to be ‘daisy chained’ together. The system also gives an edge to security installers by providing a smart streamlined installation with a single cable run from one camera to another and then back to the head-end.
Ralph DePascale, vice president of sales and marketing at Porta Systems said that the Touch Screen DVR and the CCTV distributed video system extend their strategy of providing a broad range of security products dedicated to improving the economics and reliability of a CCTV video surveillance system.
