Edge Recording with Optiview IP Camera Security Systems

Contact an Optiview Account Manager for pricing on a memory card for Edge storage.

Edge Recording

Edge-based recording is a set-up that allows the user to record video files directly to your memory card instead of an NVR, providing a cost-effective surveillance video storage system for smaller security systems. Recording on the edge allows for independent fixed or mobile surveillance systems to record in areas where a network connection is not readily available, such as a construction site, marina, parking facilities, and other remote areas. But not just that, edge-based recording provides flexibility when paired with an ANR compatible Network Video Recorder providing an essential layer of protection for your CCTV infrastructure.

ANR, when paired with a compatible NVR, automatically stores video data on an IP camera’s memory card so that even when the network is disconnected you retain critical video footage. After recovery of the network, the NVR automatically retrieves the missing video data stored on the camera and updates its own backup. This provides critical protection to your infrastructure so that in the case of unforeseen outages, your site, staff, equipment, and product remain safe.
