TeleEye launches DVRs incorporating enhanced H.264 technology

by admin - on May 16th 2016 - No Comments

TeleEye is pleased to announce the launch of GN Series, a new generation of DVRs with WQHD resolutions.

WQHD is a video resolution standard equivalent to 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is also 4 times the resolution of 720p HD. The new GN Series DVRs are capable of recording higher quality video footages than 1080p full HD systems, providing much more useful information for post-incident investigations. Nevertheless higher resolution videos lead to the requirement of a more sophisticated video compression engine. With this in mind, TeleEye, a company that is always committed to innovation, has incorporated an enhanced H.264 video compression technology into the GN DVRs.

“The enhanced H.264 technology is 30% more efficient than ordinary H.264, thus greater video detail can be achieved with less data,” said Dr. Wallace Ma, Director of TeleEye Group. “As WQHD is sitting between 1080p and 4K, it is an excellent balance between video clarity and processing requirement in a practical video surveillance system,” Dr. Ma added.

The GN Series comprises of two models, the GN6516 and GN6608, which are designed with two opposite approaches that have two distinguished benefits:

1. Shared Network – simplest installation: GN6516 is designed for projects requiring IP camera data running on an existing LAN in the premises. By running video feeds through an existing network infrastructure, it greatly simplifies the installation work that would result in a lower deployment cost.

2. Dedicated Network – highest security: GN6608 is designed for projects requiring IP cameras completely separate from the existing LAN in the premises. With the TeleEye proprietary 5-layer security protection, GN6608 shields IP cameras off from the outside world, ensures the highest security standard and minimizes the chance of the video surveillance system being attacked.

GN Series DVRs are designed for fulfilling the complete security needs as they can interface with different types of alarm sensors. When any incident is detected, the DVR would make a connection back to a 7/24 security center. The operator can inspect the video and respond to the incident swiftly and precisely, such as expelling the intruder by delivering a verbal warning message. Hence the loss and damage due to the incident can be minimized.
