Video Surveillance: Substation Hardened Digital Video Recorder

Sponsored by

Utility safety: System With Intelligence's Digital Video Server (DVS1000) is the center piece to Systems With Intelligence’s video monitoring solution. It is a powerful video server appliance that digitally records video from multiple cameras, incorporates a suite of sophisticated video analytics algorithms for “smart” surveillance, includes tools for video monitoring and analysis, features flexible networking capabilities, and provides automated alarm and event notification. Local video archiving of up to 512 Gigabytes, allows for over 30 days of local video storage, is also available.

The DVS1000 is easy to use, with simple “plug-n-play” functionality that minimizes installation time and costs. It can be used within new or existing installations and can connect directly to most types of IP and/or analog/CCTV video cameras. For legacy analog cameras, the DVS1000 can “IP-enable” these cameras for distribution of the video stream over an IP-based communications network, enabling users to leverage their existing surveillance infrastructure and reduce capital costs. The DVS1000 is ideal for applications with a widely dispersed infrastructure, as it can be used to aggregate multiple video sources at a remote location for efficient transmission to a central location.

The DVS1000 has been designed specifically for harsh environments found in electric utility applications, taking into account the presence of high EMI and wide temperature range present in a substation.
