Can a camera also
be a server?
Imagine a surveillance system that didn’t require an entirely separate server.
No extra installs required. No annoying connection hassles. No additional equipment or maintenance.
Most importantly, imagine eliminating the costs associated with servers and IT racks.
We tend to toss around words like “game-changer” and “revolution” pretty freely, but in this case, Hanwha Vision has really made a leap.
SolidEDGE: A Camera with an Embedded Server
Imagine no longer because the idea of having a separate server has been rendered obsolete.
With SolidEDGE, the server is part of the camera.
Running Hanwha Vision’s video management system, WAVE VMS, you’re talking about a total synthesis of software and hardware.
The WAVE VMS license is included which allows for cloud management via WAVE Sync – they’ve thought of everything with this one.
On top of that, the embedded Linux OS features:
- Quad-core CPU
- Dedicated encoder
- 4GB of RAM
Built-in Storage and Security for a True All-in-One Device
Storage is also covered with a built-in and rugged SSD.
You can choose from either a 1 TB or 2TB depending on your needs.
While the recorded video is viewable remotely, it’s stored locally which makes it more secure.
Of course, not having an external server or cloud storage makes the entire system more reliable too.
Added security comes from embedded TPM 2.0 and circuit boards that meet JTAG standards.
Connect 5 More Cameras
You can consider scalability and flexibility to be features as much as WAVE VMS and the internal SSD are.
Because you can use one SolidEDGE camera as a hub for five additional cameras.
That means each camera can record up to 5 others for as many as 30 merged servers which are all accessible and manageable via WAVE Sync.
That makes SolidEDGE a perfect solution for businesses with multiple properties or large coverage areas. Construction sites, school campuses, you name it.
Given how much is packed into each unit, you may be thinking these things are going to be inconveniently large or tough to install and set up.
They’re the same size as Hanwha Vision’s other cameras and you can be up and running with your entire surveillance system in an hour.
