BB-HNP17 Description

Network camera recorder

HNP17 allows full monitoring and recording of your IP cameras. Allowing up to 64 cameras to be registered it is ideal for small-medium IP applications. The flexible layout allows full and multi screen options and switching between cameras.

HNP17 gives you true control of your security system with multi sensor activated recording or timer recording with preset positions. Recording can be activated by alarms from the camera such as movement, noise or shock detectors, triggering specific presets and recording.

 

H.264, MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG recording & monitoring
Even if a user of this system uses his/her PC at any place distant from a site to be recorded,
this system enables the user to record and replay, on his/her PC, any image with sound which can be taken through its network camera connected with LAN or the Internet.
Under this system, the user can record any image as well as sound with it, and so the user can feel as if he/she was on the spot, even though he/she is actually away from the site. Also, this system enables the user to record several pieces of images through its network cameras at the same time.
Corresponding to the existing convenient functions of MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG, this system has also newly corresponded to the H.264 function which is responsible for high-compression and smooth moving image. So, users of this system can select a proper recording mode among multiple choices according to recording uses and environments.

 

Supports resolutions of 1280 x 960
This system enables a user to record and monitor, innovatively clearly in such high resolution as 1280 x 960 pixels, any image taken through its camera.
If you need to take a clear and detailed image for your convenient use by this system, you can save in your PC your recorded data as high image quality as it is for your convenience.

 

Flexible Layout
This system enables a user to display images from up to 16 network cameras on one screen for simultaneous monitoring (Multi-Monitoring).
In case that the number of network cameras registered in [BB-HNP17] exceeds 16 units, this system can show images from up to 64 network cameras on 128 pages of screens and switch these screens flexibly according to the user’s need. Under this system, for example, a user can switch images from its cameras into a Whole Image Screen or switch into a single screen display (Single Monitoring Screen Display) by double-clicking a image the user want to check closely, etc.

 

Full screen display
A camera image is displayed on the full screen of your PC.

 

Single Monitoring Screen Display
If you double-click an image from the network camera, the screen display on your PC is switched into Single Monitoring / Multi-Monitoring screen for the user’s convenience.

 

Flexibility of Layout Setup
Under this function, you can set up the layout of multi image screen display.
For example, you can enlarge an image you want to check closely, you can change the number of images vertically and horizontally for your convenience, etc

 

Auto Scan Display under Multi-Monitoring
This function shows different multi-monitoring images at certain intervals and can switch into different pages of those images.

 

Multi-Sensor-Activated Recording / Presettable-Timer Recording
Under this function, different types of sensors (Movement Detector, Shock Detector, Sound Detector, External Sensor Detection) are designed to start recording. Also this system has its timer recording function which starts and ends the recording at user’s specified time. Besides, in case of Timer Recording, the direction of the monitoring lens is designed to set at the specified target when the recording starts (?3). Any combination of recording functions is available. For example, Sensor Detection Function combined with Timer Recording Function is possible. Recording to be started by Movement Detector within the specified time frame and Alarm Recording are also possible.
Also, Recording Time before and after the sensor detection can be specified for setting.
Timer Recording Function is designed to set 10 times of recording per camera. This enables a user to change recording-start /-end times between weekdays and weekend for his/her convenience

 

Pop-up display
This system is designed to enlarge the image (stationary image) at the time of the sensor detection by popping it out on the screen for notifying purpose.

Remote Access Function
If a user gets [BB-HNP17] installed on his/her PC, the user can access and/or check any image taken by the network camera on the web browser of his/her PC through the Network.
In this use, [BB-HNP17] doesn’t need to be installed on the PC on the client’s side.
Users making access to the image can establish three stages of access rights.
The administrator has the right to create new use environmental settings by, for example, adding new recording conditions, etc.

 

Cautions:
Before you install the remote client of [BB-HNP17], please be sure to buy the following license fro use.

For USA:BB-HCA5A and BB-HCA8A
For Other Regions:BB-HCA5CE and BB-HCA8CE

 

Time Specified Colour Night View
This function is for setting the timer to turn ON/OFF the coloured night view function.
This function automatically turns on Normal Mode in daytime and turns on coloured Night View Mode in the night or a dark situation, and so this function enables recording/monitoring images taken by the Network camera(s) in a proper mode according the recording situation.
This function also memorizes the shutter speed of the normal mode and so recovers the shutter speed of Coloured Night View Mode into the one of Normal Mode when switching from Coloured Night View Mode into Normal Mode.

*1 Depends on Camera’s Spec.
*2-1 Folders on the network allotted to the drive can be specified for saving data.
*2-2 When a network drive is specified as a folder for saving data, the amount of data flowing over the network increases. This may remarkably degrade the operating performance for watching or recording camera images, watching previously recorded images, etc., and may also result in errors. It is recommended that a folder on a local disk be specified for saving data.
*3 The detection level varies depending on the camera resolution, image quality setting, subject conditions, network conditions, etc.

*1: In case of using lower performance PC than this table, PC resource is almost occupied by BB-HNP17.
It cause that unexpected PC operation response degradation may occur.
It is not recommended to install nor operate the other application during operating this software.
*2: In case of defining "Monitoring frame rate" to be "Not specify", PC resource is consumed much more than "10 fps".
It cause that the number of recordable camera will be reduced.
BB-HNP17 display image with same frame rate from camera. (Ex. If camera output 30fps display around 30fps.)

Still and motion image data size

 

JPEG Data size for 1 image frame (image only), Data format: JPEG

resolution (dot) size(KB):
favour clarity
size(KB):
standard
size(KB):
favour motion
1280 x 960 approx.120 approx.77 approx.60
640 x 480 approx.50 approx.35 approx.27
320 x 240 approx.25 approx.16 approx.10
194 x 144 approx.10 approx.7 approx.5

 

The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula:
Size (KB) x Frame rate (images/sec) x Recording time (sec)
Example

  • The calculation for a 1-hour recording of 640 x 480 resolution images at a frame rate of 5 images/sec in Favour Clarity mode is as follows:
    50 KB x 5 images/sec x 3,600 sec (1 hour) = 900,000 KB ≒ 879 MB
  • In case of images with voices, 4 KB is added per each second:
    900,000 KB + 4 KB x 3,600 sec = 914,400 KB ≒ 893 MB

 

MPEG-4 Data size for 1 second of motion images (images only), Data format: MPEG-4

resolution (dot) MPEG-4 bit rate*
640 x 480 768kbps
320 x 240 384kbps
194 x 144 128kbps

 

* MPEG-4 bit rate: This depends on the value set at the camera for MPEG-4 bit rate for image distribution.
The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula:
MPEG-4 bit rate (Kbps)/8 bits x time (sec).
Example

  • The calculation for 640 x 480 resolution images at an MPEG-4 bit rate of 768 Kbps is as follows:
    768 Kbps/8 bits x 3,600 seconds (1 hour) = 345,600 KB ≒ 337.5 MB
  • In case of images with voices, 4 KB is added per each second:
    345,600 KB + 4 KB x 3,600 sec = 360,000 KB ≒ 352MB

 

H.264 Data size for 1 second of motion images (images only), Data format: H.264

resolution (dot) MPEG-4 bit rate*
1280 x 960 2048kbps
640 x 480 1536kbps
320 x 240 1024kbps

* H.264 bit rate: This depends on the value set at the camera for H.264 bit rate for image distribution.
The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula:
H.264 bit rate (Kbps)/8 bits x time (sec).
Example

  • The calculation for 640 x 480 resolution images at an H.264 bit rate of 1536 Kbps is as follows:
    1536 Kbps/8 bits x 3,600 seconds (1 hour) = 691,200 KB = 675 MB
  • In case of images with voices, 4 KB is added per each second:
    691,200 KB + 4 KB x 3,600 sec = 705,600 KB ≒ 689MB
