The WJ-ND400 is a network video recorder that will allow up to 64 IP cameras to be connected to the unit. In addition Panasonic’s WJ-ND400 will allow both images and audio to be recorded at the same time giving a high level of flexibility. As standard Panasonic have equipped the WJ-ND400 with 8 HDD slots. This allows expansion from the standard 500gig hard drive that comes out of the factory. In fact, in total the WJ-ND400 can be expanded up to an impressive 27TB, ideal for large scale IP installations making it a real candidate for consideration when installing large data generating megapixel IP camera systems. A hot swap facility means that harddrives can be replaced without any interruption in the recording process.
The WJ-ND400 is oozing with features and benefits such as filtered searches, FTP transfer, alarm recording and e-mail notification to name but a few. Avanced search facilities mean movement within specified areas can be searched on as well as time and date and event searches. The WJ-ND400 is primarily an H.264 recorder but can accommodate MPEG-4 and JPEG.
Two NICs mean the recorder allows the client network to be separated from the camera network. This clever idea means the camera network performance is not affected by users monitoring the system. This is also an additional security measure. Cameras placed within a separate network means access can only be obtained through the NVR.
i-Pro network cameras are auto-sensed by the WJ-ND400, meaning their IP addresses are easily detected. This really helps the engineer save time in setting up and configuring a large IP surveillance system.
The new Panasonic WJ-ND400 is a great example of an NVR that boasts both usability and reliability and caters for both users and engineers when looking at large scale IP CCTV surveillance systems.
