Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Products launched a NVR recording platform that records locally while leveraging the benefits of cloud-based services.

“This product has been built from the ground up with two main purposes in mind: Providing end-user customers with increased ease of use and on-going system management,” said Greg Hartzell, director of Toshiba’s surveillance division.

While Percept recorders can function as a traditional stand-alone NVR, they were purposely built to leverage the power of the cloud. Key benefits to end-users include:
• Virtual elimination of software client installation and upgrades
• Simplified user permissions management
• Greatly improved remote connectivity by leveraging a single universal sign-on
• Greatly improved ability to export and share video clips.

The single universal sign-on allows users to access their recorders from anywhere with almost any device (PC, phone, tablet) by entering a single user name and password, doing away with integration hassles, reducing tech support time, and improving security by eliminating improperly stored passwords.

Video clips can easily export to the cloud where the user can remotely view, search, download and share with colleagues or law enforcement.

By leveraging SWS, Percept recorders provide centralized user management and make it easier than ever to navigate complex networks and to access an entire surveillance system via an intuitive interface accessible on a PC or mobile device. Virtually all aspects of user rights and system settings/configurations can be remotely managed, saving time and money.

Toshiba Percept E-Series recorders are designed for enterprise-class applications. Available with a maximum of 64 IP video inputs and 16 audio channels, Percept E-Series recorders locally store up to 96TB of video. Percept M-Series recorders are for small- to mid-sized applications with a maximum of 32 channels of IP video and 24TB of local video storage. M-Series recorders are offered with 8 or 16 channel optional built-in integrated PoE+ ports with plug-and-play capability.

Both the Percept M-Series and E-Series are compatible with Toshiba’s MySurveillix service that monitors and reports on the health of the surveillance system. It has a robust range of features allowing users to quickly check the system’s functionality, set alarms and define filters to alert via SMS or email, and identify and fix any problems when they happen, not after a critical event occurs and fails to be captured.
