QNAP Security Launches Cost-efficient VS-2200 Pro+ Series VioStor NVR for SMB & SOHO Users
Taipei, Taiwan, April 16, 2015 - QNAP® Security today launched the new Linux-based VioStor NVR VS-2200 Pro+ series. The 2-bay VS-2200 Pro+ series, available in a tower form factor with 4, 8 and 12 channels, is designed with a compact size with rich functions to convey high cost-efficiency for SMB and SOHO users. Small but fully loaded with advanced features, the VS-2200 Pro+ series supports Full HD 1080P Local Display, built-in alarm GPIO for enhancing security management, QSCM Lite as a free app for centrally managing multiple NVRs, and more.
Powered by a quad-core Intel® 2.0GHz processor (burst up to 2.41GHz) and energy-efficient 4GB DDR3L memory, the VS-2200 Pro+ series delivers quality performance with up to 180 Mbps throughput to ensure steady recording from multiple megapixel IP cameras. The HDMI output and hardware decoder provide the ability to deliver up to 200 fps Full HD local display. “The new series provides many advanced features parallel to those available in superior models at a low total cost of ownership,” said Andrew Yu, product manager of QNAP Security.
The VS-2200 Pro+ series features HDMI output that allows users to quickly set up and manage the NVR by simply plugging in a mouse, keyboard, and HDMI monitor. Without needing an additional PC, users can easily monitor multiple IP cameras and play back recordings with the Full HD 1080p local display.
With built-in GPIO (6in/2out) terminal blocks, the VS-2200 Pro+ series supports alarm system linkage between alarm equipment such as emergency push buttons and IR sensors. Once the GPIO interface receives signals, the VS-2200 Pro+ will switch to high frame rate video recording, send an event notification via email or SMS to the control center, and trigger the alarm system at the same time to help administrators respond to events in a timely manner to achieve better security. “The addition of a GPIO alarm sensor can further assist security management in wider scenarios and help administrators be more responsive to alarm events,” added Yu.
By installing QSCM Lite, a free app that empowers a single VioStor NVR with the abilities of CMS server, users can enjoy a hands-on CMS solution with the VS-2200 Pro+ series to centrally monitor, playback and manage up to 256 IP cameras from up to 16 VioStor NVRs at different locations with greater flexibility.
Users can expand the monitored channels based on their demands by purchasing additional licenses. The expandable license management provides a flexible and cost-effective way of scaling various surveillance needs.
The VS-2200 Pro+ series is now shipping. GPIO support will be available from the next newer firmware update.
