Digital Sentry Network Video Recorder
The new Digital Sentry« network video recorder (NVR) is optimized by Pelco to deliver the essential hardware support for the DSSRV video management software (VMS) without the extra cost or risk of integrating hardware and software.

Boosted by the 2nd Generation Intel« CoreÖ i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM, Digital Sentry NVR provides an optimal combination of processing power and reliability to meet the demands of HD video recording and playback operations. The system is powered to support up to 128 combined IP and analog video streams, with up to 64 analog cameras supported via the optional ENC5416 direct-attached encoder. Analog streams are also supported using Pelco and third-party encoders.

The new DSSRV delivers total available throughput of 280 Mbps for recording of analog and IP video streams as well as playback and export through the DS ControlPoint client. When determining the maximum number of cameras and the desired frame rate to host on each system, the number of concurrent client connections, the number of streams likely to be viewed in playback on each client, and the bandwidth required to support the client connections must be taken into consideration.

The DSSRV functions as a stand-alone system or as part of a network of servers, monitored from the DS ControlPoint user interface. The system can be deployed solely as a network video recorder, as a digital video recorder (DVR), or as a hybrid NVR.

Two gigabit network ports provide for convenient network architecture planning by allowing one port to be dedicated to IP cameras, while the second network port is used for client connections. Two DVI-D ports provide a convenient connection for high resolution digital monitors for use with HD cameras.

With front-available drives for easy servicing and upgrades, the DSSRV is available with up to 18 TB for models without the optional optical disk drive (ODD), or up to 12 TB for ODD models. The drives are hot-swappable when configured for internal RAID 5 storage with the optional RAID 5 controller card. A minimum of three drives is required for a RAID 5 configuration. External storage is supported through USB attached storage or by using the optional DSSRV-SCSI interface card connected to DX8100HDDI storage of up to 24 TB. The external storage can be configured for JBOD storage of software controlled RAID 5. Internal RAID 5 storage cannot be used in conjunction with external storage.

Front panel LED displays on the DSSRV provide heads-up information on system operation. The LEDs are integrated with the new Digital Sentry System Information (DSSI) utility, providing critical, real-time statistics on system resource utilization, temperature, and throughput status.

The cornerstone of Digital Sentry design, a fully Open Architecture, is provided through ONVIF compliance and support for a large number of IP-specific drivers. Users can choose specific IP cameras or encoders to fit their application.

Eliminate the risk of deferred support that comes with VMS software from one vendor and a general purpose hardware platform from another. Replace it with the assurance of an integrated platform built specifically for the rigors of IP video recording. Make the performance, reliability, and Open Architecture of DSSRV running on DSSRV the core foundation of your video management solution.

The following table describes the DSSRV and DSSRV-DVD model numbers. For example, the model number for a 12 TB, DSSRV device with a United Kingdom power cord is DSSRV-120-UK. The model number for a 6 TB, DSSRV-DVD device with an Australian power cord is DSSRV-060DVD-AU.

1. The minimum configuration for an internal RAID 5 is three hard disk drives. One hard disk drive of the RAID 5 configuration is used for parity, reducing net storage capacity by the value of one hard disk drive.
2. Requires an optional DSSRV-RAID controller card. The internal RAID 5 requires reimaging of the system with the recovery DVD (supplied). Non-DVD units require reimaging from a bootable 8 GB USB key (not supplied).
3. While the DS ControlPoint client can be run at the server, doing so can impact performance of the DSSRV. For optimum performance, run DS ControlPoint at a client station.
