Lanner Electronics has released a 32-channel hybrid DVR with eight internal storage drives and a 32-channel H.264 video encoding for enterprise-class network video applications.

The Lanner VR-4832 is an all-in-one DVR platform that enables the construction of a sizeable hybrid analogue/digital surveillance system with a single server.

The VR-4832 is claimed to simplify and centralise complex video networks by allowing all 32 channels of video input to be controlled and accessed from a single location.

Tim Chen, senior vice-president of Lanner Video Communications, said: 'Building on the success of the VR-2416, which provides 16-channel H.264 encoding of analogue video signals, Lanner has developed a next-generation hybrid DVR that can handle the extremely high-volume video traffic of enterprise-class surveillance networks.' Lanner's latest hybrid DVR platform is a 4U rack-mount server with an LGA775 socket for Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad central-processing units (CPUs), two DDR2 DIMMs for up to 4Gb memory, two GbE local-area-network (LAN) ports, six USB 2.0 ports and eight internal 3.5in (8.9cm) SATA II storage drives.

RAID levels zero, one, five and 10 are supported in Windows with Intel Rapid Recovery Technology.

The VR-4832 supports 32 channels of NTSC or PAL video via an onboard dedicated H.264 encoder.

Each channel is capable of compressing a single full D1 video stream and a G.711 audio stream in real time.

The VR-4832 also provides two RS-485 inputs for PTZ control and a set of DI/DO terminal blocks for alarm and access control.

Other hardware features include a front-facing slim DVD-RW drive, VGA, S-Video and DVI-D video out, 32-channel BNC outputs for video looping and sequential monitoring and a PCI-E (x1) expansion slot for independent expansion or a hardware RAID controller.

Lanner provides an SDK for Linux and Windows, along with its Eyeshot 2000 Player evaluation software, which includes features for building advanced network video systems, including motion detection, video loss detection, scalable video codec (SVC), night detection and RAW data preview.

The VR-4832 will be demonstrated at IFSEC 2009 on 11-14 May at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, where Lanner will be exhibiting a range of network video technologies.

Lanner Electronics is a designer and ODM manufacturer of advanced network video technologies.
