S2 releases NetVR 500


S2 Security Corporation has just introduced S2 NetVR 500, a hybrid IP and analogue video server network appliance. S2 NetVR 500 is the newest addition to the S2 NetVR series of video management systems (VMS) and follows the release over the summer of the NetVR 100, S2’s all-IP model.

“Each new addition to our VR series expands the range of applications available to our enterprise customers,” said John L. Moss, CEO, S2 Security. “With the NetVR 500, users of legacy systems can tap into our advanced, integrated SMS and VMS, as well as our Forensic Desktop search tools.”

As a hybrid analogue/IP appliance, the NetVR 500 allows users to leverage their existing analogue investment, including cameras, associated cables and hardware. The NetVR 500 supports 16 or 32 analogue video cameras, plus up to 64 IP cameras.

S2’s NetVR products provide advanced video forensics and tight integration of access control and monitoring with video for users of the S2 Netbox, S2 Enterprise and S2 Global products. Real-time video surveillance is integrated into the monitoring desktop and widget desktop through a common web browser. The home page can display a single camera or multi-camera views. For larger installations, multiple NetVRs can be linked to a single S2 network controller.
