Digital Surveillance Recorder

Model Details

Featuring simultaneous monitoring, recording, and playback, Sony's HSR2 Digital Surveillance Recorder is an essential option for high-performance, high-resolution digital video recording and archiving. The tape transport and heads of the HSR2 are stationary most of the time because the DV tape drive works only while recording the image data being transferred from the Hard Disk Drive. Therefore, the head running time of the tape mechanism is drastically reduced to 1/4 (in 24-hour recording mode using a 270 minute tape) compared with conventional equipment. Additionally, the HSR2 is networkable when used in conjunction with the optional SNTV304 Network Surveillance Server.
