Vista introduces all-new Viper H5S NVRs and VK2 mini dome camera models

Vista has released two new products to complement its current solutions range. The Viper H5S is a range of powerful NVRs, while the new mini dome extends the popular range of VK2 cameras.

The Viper NVRs are supplied as 4, 8 or 16-channel units in a 1U high compact casing. All channels are PoE powered allowing for simple and quick installation, and capable of recording up to 4K resolution.

As with the rest of the Viper range, the H5S models can be viewed via the powerful Viper Central software client and the highly-featured iOS and Android app Viper-Remote.

Key features and benefits of the NVRs include the following:

*H.265/H.264 recording permits the installer to take advantage of the features of Vista’s new H.265 VK2 cameras, allowing either higher resolution or greater volume of video to be recorded to the same disk size

*Up to 8 MP (4K) recording resolution future-proofs the NVRs for several years, allowing them to record ultra HD camera images to realise “superb” evidential quality images

*PoE per channel makes installation and set-up both quick and easy, using a single Cat5e cable per camera for power and video

*Advanced ‘Smart’ and ‘Thumbnail’ searching renders the pinpointing of a particular event very simple, in turn saving time for the end user when looking for particular events

Integral IR illumination

The VK2 PTZ domes come with integral IR illumination and offer the installer a neat and compact IP dome camera packed with high-end features. These include H.265 quad streaming, 60 images per second, true Wide Dynamic Range and up to 60 metres of IR illumination. The four alarm inputs, 12 V DC operation and small size make it an ideal choice for use in event-driven rapid deployment-type applications.

Key features and benefits include the following:

*Built-in IR illumination: The on-board IR illumination allows effective night time illumination at a range of up to 60 metres from the camera

*Full-HD resolution: The VK2-HDX23IR-SMW delivers “crystal clear” 1080p resolution images, providing excellent evidential quality

*Compact and aesthetic design: The small compact casing lends itself to those camera installations where design and feature sets are all-important

Bob Forehand, Vista’s product manager, commented: “Vista is continually assessing its product portfolio to ensure that it meets the needs of our customers. The Viper H5S is for smaller systems than the Viper H5 and has been designed to provide a more efficient recording format. The mini dome extends our camera range to offer a smaller HD dome at a highly competitive price.”
