Latest Generations of Intel Processors and Technologies
All our systems are using the latest generations of Intel processors: Atom, Pentium Dual Core, Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Core i3, Core i5 and/or Core i7 or Xeon. These processors bring the power and multitasking capabilities of multi-core processors to a new level for pc based surveillance systems. This new breed of processors is leveraging the responsiveness of the systems by distributing the usual digital video recorder tasks such as encoding of live recordings, searching and archiving of events, remote streaming from multiple concurrent connections - making these tasks as easy to use as they should have ever been. The cutting-edge Intel processors add significant performance boost and better energy efficiency to our platforms.
Hard Disk Drives Engineered For Video Surveillance Recording
Pennington Electronic feature the latest Hard Drive types engineered for Surveillance computer systems from Pennington Electronic stern Digital and Hitachi (now with storage sizes up to 2 Terabytes per drive) with SATA II/III interfaces operating at up to 6GB/s interface speed at 7200 RPM with up to 64MB of memory buffer designed specifically for intense Audio Video operations. New technologies, such as perpendicular recording technology and advanced format (on 500GB or bigger hard drives), NCQ and low power consumption are some of the features used in RAID based systems with Multi-Terabyte configurations customized for your needs. The SATA II/III specifications increases the bus bandwidth from 1.5Gb/s to 3Gb/s or 6Gb/s. Native Command Queuing is a new specification that enables out-of-order execution of commands for efficient retrieval of data. Hot Plug support allows users to insert and remove hard disk drives without shutting off power to the system.
