The NEW Rugged HD S-WV.
Now recording at the 960H Real-Time Recording (480fps) , which means you can now take advantage of the Sony EFFIO 960H cameras.

This means that all channels can record at the highest resolution (960px x 480px) and fastest frame rates (30fps) simultaneously.

This 960H Resolution is 33% wider video than the old D1 (DVD Quality) and displays properly on todays modern 16:9 monitors without distorting or stretching the video image.

Video Signal Equalization - In some installations of CCTV equipment, the distance between the DVR and Camera is a serious aspect for consideration. In order to make this a competitive advantage of Rugged Cams DVR’s, the video signal from the DVR is ‘boosted’ as to allow for extra 30% distance between the DVR and recording Camera.

iSCSI - Storage through internet allows data transfers over intranets and to manage storage over long distances, iSCSI can be used to transmit data over local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), or the Internet and can enable location-independent data storage and retrieval.
