Amaro, Udine (Italy) - February 04, 2005 ? Eurotech announces the release of a new rugged modular system, available in several configurations, that performs advanced Digital Video Recording functionalities.
The system is suitable for surveillance and security applications on board trains, buses and other public transport. It can perform Audio/Video acquisition & compression features including MPEG4, or JPEG-2000 encoding technologies or only frame grabber functionalities. Furthermore the system can be provided with GSM/GPRS (UMTS) communication technologies, Gigabit and Fast Ethernet controllers, and hi-speed USB 2.0 ports (capable of powering the connected devices).
The system is also provided with auto diagnosis features for monitoring the status of the system; the monitoring is also accessible via an I2C bus (available also, in case of failure, at power off).
The Digital Video Recorder is compliant with the EN 50155 standard; that means it can achieve extended temperature ranges (-25?C/+70?C) and can withstand shocks, vibrations and high humidity.
