Aug. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- EverFocus UK makes it easy to upgrade to high definition video (HD) for coax-based video surveillance installations with the launch of a two megapixel 1080i HD-CCTV camera and an eight channel standalone HD-CCTV DVR.

EverFocus Electronics Corporation, a global top 20 global professional security equipment manufacturer1, has launched a groundbreaking HD-CCTV surveillance system which uses the latest High Definition Serial Digital Interface (HD-SDI) technology, delivering real-time 1080 HD resolution images over standard RG59 coaxial cable.  EverFocus predicts it will be the first in the UK to offer a HD-CCTV ‘plug and play’ system with a two megapixel HD-CCTV camera and an eight channel HD-CCTV embedded digital video recorder (DVR), when it ships this system during Quarter 4 2010.

The EverFocus EQH5200 is a two megapixel camera using a 1/2.5 inch CMOS sensor to deliver a choice of HD-CCTV resolutions (720p/1080i). Designed for indoor use, the EQH5200 has a compact box design and offers day/night functionality.  Set-up is simple with an RCA TV output for installation use and an on-screen set-up menu. This camera is simply connected to a coaxial cable network using a standard BNC connector.

With eight BNC video inputs for coaxial connections, the EverFocus EHDR08 true HD-CCTV eight channel DVR offers either 720p/1080p HD resolution recording using H.264 compression, with four slots for hard disk drives offering a current maximum internal data storage capacity of 8 terabytes.  Video output can be via VGA or HDMI.  The EHDR08 makes video viewing, recording and searching simple and incorporates Express Search, Snapshot and Smart Search functionality, with three USB ports and a built-in DVD burner for quick video file transfer.  The DVR also includes a Gigabit Ethernet interface for remote network viewing and management, plus support for 3GPP mobile monitoring.

With an estimated 94% of CCTV installations in the UK still using coaxial cable, and growing end-user demand to upgrade to the image clarity that HD-CCTV offers, EverFocus sees the UK as an early adopter of HD-CCTV solutions.

Basil Singh, managing director, EverFocus UK, commented:                                                
“We believe with the launch of these EverFocus HD-CCTV products we are giving the market what it needs right now, a simple upgrade path to HD which gives extended life to the end-users’ sunk investment in coaxial cabling and does not demand investment in building networking skills.  We know from our channel partners that end users are demanding HD quality images. They have HD at home and know the image quality improvement that it delivers. We also know that installers want HD cameras and DVRs that are easy to install, reliable and do not demand networking expertise to install. That is exactly what EverFocus is now delivering with this offering.”

James Weng, president, EverFocus Electronics Corporation, commented:
“We are very excited about the prospects for our HD-CCTV products here in the UK, and this all in one system marks the first of a range of HD-CCTV systems that will be introduced into the UK over the coming months.   We want installers and integrators to see the launch of these products as a chance to kick-start the adoption of HD-CCTV into the UK.  We all know that end-users want HD quality images and our products make it easy for installers to satisfy this demand and open up new revenue streams for UK installers.”

The EverFocus EQH5200 HD-CCTV camera and EHDR08 HD-CCTV DVR will be available to order via EverFocus UK from Quarter 4 2010.
