Honeywell Adds Hybrid Technology to MAXPROÔøΩ NVR Portfolio

MAXPRO Hybrid NVRs and HVE Encoders Allow Security Pros to Transition Customers from Analog to HD IP Video LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 18, 2014 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has added hybrid network video recorders (NVRs) to its MAXPRO portfolio of high-definition IP video technology, and has also introduced HVE video/audio encoders that allow dealers to easily transition their customers analog cameras to IP. The hybrid NVRs convert analog feeds to IP without replacing analog cameras, which is ideal for smaller installations that want to keep their existing analog cameras while adding affordable, high-quality HD IP video to their systems. When installed with an existing NVR, the HVE encoders transition the NVR to a hybrid model that supports a mix of analog and HD IP video. Honeywell's MAXPRO NVR Hybrid Standard Edition (SE) surveillance system is ideal for migrating small to mid-size installations in a hybrid format, and supports 32 channels of video, including up to 16 analog. The MAXPRO NVR Hybrid Xpress Edition (XE) accommodates initial entry into hybrid video surveillance, and supports up to 16 channels. There is growing demand for technologies that marry existing infrastructure with the latest high-definition video surveillance capabilities, said Deborah Paterson, channel marketing, Honeywell Security Group. By leveraging MAXPRO NVR Hybrid, Honeywell dealers can offer customers an affordable, pre-installed solution that utilizes existing analog investments, is easy to set-up and provides advanced video features such as high-quality video, better tracking functionality and smarter video search capabilities. MAXPRO NVR Hybrid supports simultaneous recording and live monitoring for up to 32 cameras and is compliant with the ONVIF Profile S protocol that enables system customization. Additionally, 360-degree camera support increases situational awareness and improves coverage, and a video surround feature lets users track subjects as they move between areas covered by adjacent cameras. Customers can access the system remotely using Honeywell's web client and MAXPRO Mobile application. The web client is supported from any standard Mac or PC browser and requires no additional install, provides the value of reduced setup, maintenance and improved compatibility. The interface is simple and intuitive with all the functionality and features that users need for daily surveillance operations, such as live view and playback of recorded video. The new HVE video/audio encoders speed up the analog-to-IP conversion process by enabling an existing NVR to work with a mix of analog and IP cameras. For example, a customer with an existing NVR can install the new encoders to transform the NVR to a hybrid model. The encoders can be installed to an NVR remotely and require just one network cable connection to transition analog events previously stored on the system. Honeywell's HVE encoders are available in single, four, or eight channels and feature a range of video compression options that video reduce bandwidth and storage size.
