iRecord Covert (HDVR-100)



iRecord Covert (HDVR-100)


OEM ready, stand-alone, network enabled, hybrid digital video recorder for security and surveillance applications, supporting both analog and IP cameras. The power fail-safe feature of the recorder limits data loss to no more than one second.

iRecord Covert converts any analog camera to an intelligent, high resolution, network-enabled surveillance system. The analog A/V signal from the camera is captured, compressed and stored to an attached USB storage media using Motion JPEG (MJPEG) or H.264 video and MP3 audio formats.

iRecord Covert enhances the functionality of the attached IP camera by providing a store and forward A/V stream feature. It records the IP camera’s MJPEG high quality video stream along with its audio to an attached USB storage device at full frame rate. The live A/V stream or stored contents can be streamed in MJPEG, or transcoded, on the fly, to a highly compressed H.264 stream for remote viewing. iRecord Covert can support up to 4 IP cameras on LAN or WAN.

iRecord Covert is also a stand-alone player, with standard play back features that allow access to the recorded contents quickly and efficiently for local viewing. The recorded files can also by played by event types, such as motion detection, video lost, camera tampering, and audio monitoring. During playback, a video segment of interest can easily be extracted from a recording. The iRecord Covert player offers a powerful search and retrieval function to quickly locate a selected event or a group of events within a specified time period. A ‘jump to time’ feature jumps to the desired point in the file to start playback immediately.

The recordings made using iRecord Covert can be viewed in off-line mode by attaching the USB storage device to a computer. The off-line player application is automatically placed on the storage device by iRecord Covert, providing the same dash board as the on-line, web-based user interface.

Several stand-alone iRecord Covert units can be used as a symmetric, decentralized monitoring system (patent pending) across the network. Each iRecord Covert can access the others on the network for system configuration, monitoring, recording, and playback.
