INTEGRA™ DIGITAL TIME-LAPSE
VIDEO RECORDER

Integra is a digital video recorder for the CCTV professional who needs high-resolution time-lapse recording. Combining advanced digital compression with optical DVD-RAM disk technology, Integra records and replays events instantly - no waiting for tapes to engage or rewind.

Integra installs and operates like a VCR, so it's easy to set up and use. Yet it has many advantages over VHS tape. Optical disk storage ensures extra long life for both the recorder and the media...with no tape heads to clean, no transport mechanism to service and no media deterioration over hundreds of recording cycles.

The removable, rewriteable DVD disk cartridges can be archived indefinitely, and require far less space than VHS tapes. And because Integra is multiplexer compatible, it integrates seamlessly into existing systems.

FEATURES

  • Records high resolution time-lapse and alarm video on removable optical disk

  • Instant event response with "infinite pause"

  • Instant video retrieval via time/date or alarm list

  • Linear or continuous record modes

  • Daily or seven-day recording schedule

  • User-selectable settings for image rate, quality and resolution
  • Independent rate/quality settings for alarm mode

  • Compatible with multiplexers

  • Authenticated file format

  • Upgradeable architecture

  • Optional Video Viewer™ software accessory

  • RS-232C remote control
High-resolution digital alternative to standard time-lapse VCRs
FEATURES

High-Resolution Digital Recording
Integra's digital processing technology records video with unsurpassed clarity and detail, delivering twice the amount of horizontal resolution than is possible with standard VHS recorders*. Consistently, from the first image to the last, Integra's DVD-RAM optical
disk records images with pixel perfect definition.
* Over 600 TV lines in color or B/W, NTSC or S-Video PAL

Instantaneous Record and Archive
Unlike magnetic recording, Integra's optical head instantly records images to the disk. No images
are lost waiting for recording heads to engage.
Plus, the small, removable DVD-RAM disk
eliminates the need to archive to another medium
for offline storage.

Find and Review Any Video Within Seconds
Integra eliminates the hassle of manually searching through videotape to find important incidents.
With Integra, go directly to alarms and events using
a fast, simple on-screen display. Select the event
you want, and the video plays instantly. Scan the segment using the playback controls, then return to
the menu to search again.

No Image Distortion
Optical disks ensure consistent playback image quality; disks will not stretch, degrade and wear
like VHS tapes. When viewing in fast forward,
frame-by-frame, freeze frame or rewind, digital images are crystal clear. The removable,
rewriteable DVD-RAM disk can be reused many times, and is a more stable archive medium
than tape.

Selectable Image Settings Maximize
Record Duration

The performance of Integra can be optimized to
fit the application requirements. Choose "Best Images", "Normal" or "Extended Record" settings
to balance image quality against record duration. Image rate settings can be varied to capture
optimal motion. See Record Duration on the next page for more details. Also, use the built-in video
filter settings to deliver the best picture for the
specific installation and lighting conditions.

Use as an Event Recorder
Integra has independent image quality/rate settings for normal and alarm recording. Unlike traditional event recorders that require time to react to the
event, Integra records immediately so nothing
is missed.

Use as a Time-Lapse Recorder
Integra's image rate settings allow it to be used in place of a standard time-lapse recorder for many applications. Rates are adjustable from 30/second (NTSC) or 25/second (PAL) to as low as 1 image every 10 seconds.

Integrates Easily with Multiplexers and
Other Equipment

Integra directly replaces the time-lapse video recorder in your existing CCTV system. It accepts a single video feed from a camera, matrix switch, quad or multiplexer. When used with current Robot® or American Dynamics™ multiplexers, Integra decodes the multiplexer signal to maximize record duration.

Recording Safeguards
Integra always begins recording exactly where it stopped. Choose "linear" mode to stop recording when the disk is full, or "continuous" mode to record over the oldest images. Or cascade several Integra units so that a second unit begins recording when the first unit reaches capacity.

Long Life with Low Maintenance
Digital recording on an optical disk instead of tape eliminates many service issues, such as needing to clean or replace recording heads and tape transport mechanisms or stocking spare units. Fewer moving parts mean less maintenance and repair, and less down time. This adds up to big savings in time and money.

Advanced Compression Maximizes
Record Duration

Even the storage capacity of DVD-RAM has its limits. That's why Integra uses conditional refresh technology to get the most from available disk space.
This method is more efficient than standard compression technologies like JPEG or MPEG.

Integrity of Evidence
Integra"s recording format gives each image a unique identification "stamp". So even though Integra's DVD-RAM file structure is PC-compatible, the original video images cannot be altered or modified, enabling a solid chain of evidence for prosecution.

View and Organize Integra Video on a PC
Our Video Viewer™ software accessory lets you play Integra video on a personal computer equipped with a DVD-RAM drive. Video Viewer locates video on the DVD disk using alarm, camera or date/time criteria, and let's you create a digital copy of the original authenticated video. You can save, annotate and organize copied video into "incident folders" to aid with investigations. Individual images can be enhanced, printed and converted to standard formats.

Easy to Understand and Use
Setup and operation is quick and easy with simple
on-screen menus. Since installation and operation is similar to a VCR, little training is required.

Instant access to alarms and events -- no waiting for tape to rewind

RECORD DURATION

Record duration, or the quantity of images that can be recorded on one side of a disk, is affected by several factors. Digital video with high levels of activity or detail consumes more disk space than video with little activity or detail. For multiplexer applications, the use of a Robot or American Dynamics multiplexer (versus other brands) significantly improves both record duration and picture quality.
Other factors include:

  • Capacity of the DVD-RAM disk (2.6 gigabytes per side)
  • Image rate and image quality settings
  • Low light levels or noise in the video signal

Integra helps maximize record duration in several ways. Integra's video data compression method uses "conditional refresh" to capture image changes, delivering the best possible representation of motion under all conditions. Adjustments can be made to the image quality (affecting the amount of compression), image rate and video filter (resolution) settings to fit your particular recording requirements.

Estimating Record Duration
Below are some record duration estimates using various image rates and quality settings. Each estimate is for 2.6GB, or one side of a disk, and each assumes good lighting and low noise.

Estimate #1 - With a single camera or American Dynamics multiplexer as the video source and the image rate set to 30ips (NTSC) or 25ips (PAL), duration will be approximately:

  • 2.5-3.5 hours on NORMAL quality, depending on activity
  • 4-6 hours on EXT RECORD, depending on activity

Estimate #2 - Same as above, but with rate set to 15ips (NTSC) or 12.5ips (PAL), duration will be approximately:

  • 5-7 hours on NORMAL quality, depending on activity
  • 8-12 hours on EXT RECORD, depending on activity

Estimate #3 - With a third-party multiplexer as the video source, quality set to NORMAL and rate set to 30ips (NTSC) or 25ips (PAL), duration will be approximately 1.4 hours. Activity does not affect duration when used with third-party multiplexers.

Use the guidelines below to adjust the record duration:

  • Reducing the image rate proportionally increases duration
  • Increasing the image quality will decrease the duration
  • Decreasing the image quality will increase the duration
  • Activating the video filter to reduce noise will increase the duration in some cases
