NVRs and pinhole cameras12 February 2015
A new series of network video recorders and a tiny IP camera are the main introductions from Lilin at ISE 2015. It is exhibiting with Control4, to demonstrate how the products integrate seamlessly with home control systems.
Specifically developed for the custom installation market, the new NVRs have no front panel controls, are finished in high gloss black and are now sold on processing performance rather than number of channels.
The new units are all 16 channel, and are available in 100, 200 and 400 frames per second versions “meaning that not only are customer requirements better matched, but it is also now possible to buy a 16-channel HD NVR cheaper than our original four-channel model”, said a spokesperson.
The three models all allow remote monitoring in real-time, support up to 4TB storage capacity, with bit rates of 32-48Mbps (depending on model), offer user-friendly video playback (with video searchable by time or date), with plug-and-play one-click auto installation with LILIN WS Discovery and IPScan driver, have low bandwidth remote viewing, and come with VGA and HDMI video outputs.
Lilin’s new modular pinhole camera (IPC0122) is a discreet IP model. The main unit and HD 2-megapixel CMOS image sensor unit are connected by a 6m long cable providing flexibility in where to place the main unit. It can stream 1080p images at 30fp (using H.264 and Motion JPEG multi-profile video streaming) and send alarms via email triggered by tampering, audio and motion detection.
It is also supported by a Lilin app, so that users can view cameras streama wherever they are. The IPC0122 also supports two-way audio and can record to an SD card.
