New Wisenet WAVE PoE NVRs introduced by Hanwha Techwin are designed to provide a cost-effective way for users to be able to take advantage of the highly popular Wisenet WAVE video management software (VMS), without having to install a server.
The 8 channel Wisenet WRN-810 and 16 channel WRN-1610S NVRs are equipped with a powerful processor to provide users with a seamlessly integrated and optimised way of utilising the latest version of the feature rich VMS. The WRN-810 stores up to 12 terabytes of data with the help of two internal SATA HDDs and the WRN-1610S stores up to 24 terabytes of data via four SATA HDDs.
“In addition to the immediate benefit that the Wisenet WAVE VMS embedded in the NVRs is ready to be used out-of-the-box, we also offer system integrators peace of mind in knowing they can rely on us to provide one-stop customer support for the combined hardware and software solution,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe.
A key objective of introducing the two new NVRs has been to minimise the total cost of owning Wisenet WAVE and Hanwha Techwin has achieved this by negating a requirement to purchase, install, house and maintain a server normally needed to run the software. Users are also able to take advantage of flexible ‘future ready’ licensing arrangements whereby they only have to initially purchase licenses for half the respective NVR’s channels and then only pay for the remaining licences, if and when required in the future.
The cost of deploying the NVRs is further reduced by built-in PoE switches which provide an installation time saving method of supplying power to connected cameras.
Intended to meet the needs of small to medium sized video surveillance projects, with an emphasis on a simplified user experience, Wisenet WAVE features an intuitive ‘drag & drop’ tool which makes it extremely easy for operators to set up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall, with customisable layouts and sizes. This tool is supported by a ‘Layout-as-an-Action’ feature, which triggers a predefined screen layout to automatically open when an event occurs, whilst a wide range of Smart search options, including keyword, calendar and time-slice search, enable operators to quickly retrieve recorded video of specific incidents. Adding to ease of use, a virtual PTZ enables operators with just a few simple clicks of a mouse, to zoom in to see close up detail of any suspicious activity.
The two NVRs are embedded with the latest version of Wisenet WAVE 4.1, which is equipped with a long list of new practical features including Push notifications of user defined alarm events which can be sent to mobile devices and embedded camera web pages that enable operators to manage the settings of connected cameras without having to open a separate browser window.
An enhanced Smart search allows users to set-up an Analytics Event Region of Interest (ROI), to narrow a search to a specific area of a field of view, whilst integration with Wisenet AI cameras enables the attributes of classified objects or people to be displayed on recorded video. Users are also able to forensically search for specific objects or people by filtering the recorded metadata.
“The availability of these two new affordable NVRs means even small shops and offices will now be able to take advantage of Wisenet WAVE user-friendly features to quickly retrieve and review recorded video of any incidents, as well as view live images,” said Uri Guterman.
“Although Wisenet WAVE, subject to a minimum specification, will run on virtually any server, embedding the software on the NVRs means installation time is minimised and users can expect to enjoy a robust, cyber secure and optimised recording solution which offers a high level of reliability and performance.”
