Mobile video solutions provider Pro-Vision has announced the release of a new hybrid DVR that expands the number of high-definition cameras supported compared to the 900 Series DVR.
The Ranger Hybrid DVR, which is backward compatible with all existing Pro-Vision cameras, supports up to eight AHD (analog high definition) cameras and an additional DHD (digital high definition) camera, up from four AHD cameras and two DHD cameras on the previous model.
“We’re really excited about the expanded capacity of the Ranger DVR,” said Matt Lehnert, Pro-Vision’s vice president of engineering. “Adding support for four more AHD cameras will give our customers the option to add even more coverage of their vehicles, and the bigger storage options mean less time uploading video footage.”
The AHD inputs feature zero latency, meaning no lag between what the camera is capturing and what the in-cab video monitor is displaying, according to a news release. This allows the driver to see the sides and rear of the vehicle in real time to avoid accidents.
To speed up the video upload process, the Ranger DVR chunks videos, or separates them into smaller videos, to reduce the size of each video request.
Additional benefits of the improved hybrid DVR include:
- Enhanced real-time/live streaming capabilities
- HDMI HD video output
- Timelapse recording feature
- Supports up to 1 terabyte SD card options
