Cieffe Linearis LE – Digital Video Recorder

Linearis Lite

LINEARIS LE is the compact version of the LINEARIS series, capable of handling 6, 12 or 16 unsynchronized cameras with bidirectional audio. The features available in the LC and RM versions are also available in the embedded model, accessible by LAN/WAM/ZDSL/ISDN/ Internet.

The technical specifications, the exceptional network performance, the completely embedded hardware architecture and the superior video quality guaranteed by the new generation of DSPs, make LINEARIS LE the ideal solution for all sites, such as pharmacies, drugstores, retail stores, convenience stores, private homes, and shopping centres, centralized through a network to private security companies.

LINEARIS is CIEFFE’S new Digital Video Management System, a fully automated MPEG4 Main Profile system capable of reacting to external conditions without user intervention. Available in a new configuration with 6,12 or 16 input version, LINEARIS seamlessly combines various recording modes with internal motion detection features, fast search capabilities, external alarm inputs and built-in relay outputs. Its flexible architecture and proprietary MPEG4 Main Profile compression algorithm consistently deliver superior visual quality at exceptionally low file sizes. Recording time is thus dramatically increased while costs are significantly reduced.

Every LINEARIS DVMS has a built-in web server, Vision web. It allows viewing of live or recorded images (with audio) as well as control of PTZ cameras over any TCP/IP connection within Internet Explorer web browser – no special software is required. Video quality is handled dynamically by the MPEG4 Adaptive technology, which allows exceptional results even over an extremely limited and fluctuating bandwidth.

LINEARIS is a mid-level solution, ideal for multi-site installations where high performance and reliability are required, together with exceptional video quality and high image rates.
