Seon adds 13-channel mobile DVR to lineup

Posted on May 14, 2013

Seon Design Inc. introduced the Explorer DX-HD to its product line-up, a new HD-ready mobile digital video recorder (DVR) capable of recording at 30 frames per second simultaneously on all 13 channels.

Paired with Seon’s CHW HD bus camera, the DX-HD is ideal for transit and school bus surveillance applications where image clarity is essential, such as in accident reconstruction or license plate capture.

The next-generation DVR features the highest resolution and frame-rate combination available, delivering outstanding image quality with the most advanced video storage technology (H.264).

The system offers 13 channels with the ability to simultaneously record 30 frames-per-second at 720x480 resolution on 12 channels with audio plus one high-definition channel at 1280x720 resolution. Dual hard drives provide a fail-safe design and double the recording capacity of conventional DVRs.

The DX-HD facilitates better incident management through dual streaming technology, ideal for real-time viewing applications. Dual streaming technology records two video streams, one lower resolution stream for viewing over a cell phone network and one high-resolution stream for playback on a PC. The DX-HD includes an inertia sensor, which logs and displays G-force data, allowing system administrators to monitor driver behavior including speed, turning, signals, breaking and idling.

The system also provides incident alerts, giving transportation authorities the opportunity to respond to events instantly. In combination with vMax Commander video management software, Seon’s automated Health-Check feature monitors DVR, camera and hard drive status – and, with this newest release (version 4.1), you can see individual camera loss and firmware version installed. The system will notify the administrator of any issues, ensuring that all on board events are captured.

Supported features include geo-fencing, which allows the administrator to designate a geographic boundary and receive notification if a vehicle deviates. Footage from the DX-HD can be viewed using vMax View — easy to use playback software that allows transportation authorities to review video synchronized with mapping software for incident investigation.
