March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, introduces a new hybrid video recording platform able to support high-definition (HD) analog video in addition to all-IP and standard analog video channels.
The new March Networks 8724 V Hybrid Network Video Recorder (NVR) provides organizations with a custom combination of video capture right out of the box.
The NVR enables users to get sharp HD video using existing analog infrastructure, while avoiding the cost and disruption typically required to replace coaxial cable with Ethernet, according to the company.
Using analog power and Power over Ethernet (PoE) modules, the NVR supports a variety of IP and HD analog video configurations, up to a maximum of 24 channels.
For example, an organization could deploy the 8724 V to capture HD video from eight HD analog and 16 IP cameras at one location, and eight IP and 8 HD analog cameras at a second site.
“The 8724 V offers organizations a turnkey video solution for HD analog, IP and traditional analog video environments, along with innovative features that streamline implementation and maintenance for both customers and partners,” says Net Payne, chief sales and marketing officer, March Networks. “It gives organizations complete flexibility and choice as they move to a solution with superior video quality.”
The NVR is compatible with March Networks’ cloud-based Searchlight for QSR service. Searchlight is a video and retail data analytics service for the quick service restaurant and fast casual markets.
It provides franchise owners and managers with integrated loss prevention investigation capabilities and real-time business insights into sales and productivity numbers, best-selling products, labor reports and other operational data via a mobile app or a browser-based software client.
The 8724 V also incorporates a customized embedded Linux OS that eliminates unnecessary background services and frequent system updates.
Other reliability features include diagnostic LEDs, an internal battery backup and real-time system health monitoring via March Networks Command video management software.
The 8724 V Hybrid NVR will be available for sale in mid-September, with HD analog support following shortly thereafter. March Networks will demonstrate the recorder and Searchlight for QSR powered by 360iQ as part of its complete intelligent IP video solutions in Booth 4522 at the ASIS 2017.
