Synology Inc. today launched VisualStation VS240HD, a cost-effective surveillance solution designed for ease of multi-channel viewing on local HDMI displays. VS240HD boasts powerful image decoding capability by supporting up to 24 channels of simultaneous high-definition viewing at 240 FPS in 720p. Dual HDMI video outputs make it an ideal surveillance solution for large-scale deployments, allowing users to stream high-quality footage to different screens in a state-of-the-art security control center. "VS240HD is an economical and compact device dedicated to live-view monitoring. It does not require a PC and saves on energy bills by consuming merely 14.4 watts in full operation while still maintaining a space-saving design," said Chad Jiang, product manager of Synology Inc. Paired with Synology DiskStation or RackStation, VS240HD supports video streams in MJPEG, MPEG4, and H.264 compression formats, including audio. Pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras are also supported to offer extensive monitoring and object tracking. Users can view video footage, both live and recorded, and export high-quality HDTV clips and snapshots to external USB storage devices. All these powerful features can be managed easily through an intuitive user interface with a USB mouse. For more information, please visit this page.
