Sony’s NVR & network VMS support all levels of network camera formats, including 4K. The new recorder and software system supports a variety of IP camera formats, up to the newest 4K technologies including Sony’s 4K network cameras. The addition of a recording and content management solution capable of supporting 4K strengthens Sony’s 4K line-up, offering more options for different markets and budgets.
“This new NVR and the software expands support for an organisation’s overall operations,” said Atsushi Seki, Director, Business Development at Sony Electronics. “They support a range of camera systems, including 4K recording as the demand for higher resolution increases. 4K image capture now combined with 4K recording lets users benefit from the detail-packed data of 4K high resolution to improve their situational awareness and detail recognition capabilities.”
