High End Hybrid DVR Launched

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 14, 2009

Verint has announced a high end Hybrid NVR, called EdgeVR that will complement their existing mid-level offerings, the NetDVR II, and small scale product, the MicroDVR II. The EdgeVR supports H.264 main profile encoding with up to 16 analog cameras and up to a total of 32 cameras including IP/megapixel. The EdgeVR can be managed using the same administrative/viewing interfaces of their existing DVR lines - OpCenter and VidCenter. The MSRP for the EdgeVR is $7100 USD for 16 analog channels + 16 IP channels (32 Total) with 1TB of storage. Compared to Verint's NetDVR II, EdgeVR offers greater IP camera support (up to 32 for EdgeVR, only 6 for NetDVR II and H.264 support vs MPEG-4 for NetDVR II). Currently, EdgeVR only supports Verint's IP/megapixel cameras. Verint reports that they will support H.264 models from Axis and Arecont Vision this fall.

This product targets the market for mid to high organizations with distributed facilities (such as banks, retailers, etc.). The main direct competitors will be products from March, American Dynamics, Pelco, etc.

The EdgeVR is solid improvement in Verint's offerings and should be competitive with other high end DVRs. The main risk for all of the high end incumbents is the threat from newer entrants that are increasingly offering hybrid DVRs for under $5,000 MSRP.
