Overview of Sony NSR-1200/4T

The Sony NSR-1200/4T is a high capacity network video recorder that has a capacity of 4 TB. This network surveillance server is an ideal solution for multi-camera monitoring, capable of playback and recording from up to 64 cameras at any one time. You can view and monitor a high-quality video stream via the HDMI interface with full HD (up to 1920x1080) displays, allowing you to view megapixel images without compromising quality. At VGA resolution, the unit can display six full-size images at any one time. The NSR-1200/4T has two analogue RGB and two HDMI monitor output connectors on the rear panel. You can use two out of the four outputs simultaneously in any combination to meet your system requirements.

When connected with a specified range of Sony cameras (contact us for details), the NSR-1200/4T can accept both Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video from cameras simultaneously. With a limited storage capacity, for example, you can monitor live video via Motion JPEG at frame rates as high as 30 fps, and record video via MPEG-4 at frame rates as low as 5 fps, saving on storage without compromising image quality. The unit also incorporate Sony's DEPA technology. Used in conjunction with DEPA-enabled network cameras from Sony, this intelligent video analytics system helps identify critical events more easily, and provides a streamlined workflow for your video security operations. You can search, preview, and playback recorded video with Sony's intuitive user interface.

As well as this, up to 16 analogue cameras can be directly connected to the NSR-1200/4T. You can add IP security cameras, including megapixel cameras, while maintaining your analogue cameras, easing the transition to a full IP CCTV infrastructure. The NSR-1200/4T can also be used with other major brand network cameras (contact us for details).

The integrated set-up wizard simplifies installation with Sony's IP cameras. The NSR-1200/4T detects the cameras instantly, significantly reducing the time required for installation. Images from cameras are assigned to the monitor layout automatically, allowing you to start monitoring instantly. As well as this, the NSR-1200/4T can be used with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) equipment via the RS-232C port, ensuring operation continues in the event of power failure.
