WJ-ND300A Description


32 Channel Network Disk Recorder

The WJ-ND300A boasts high image quality, high frame rate, multi-channel capabilities and provides full support for image storage, replay and live monitoring.

Equipped with intelligence and speed alike, the WJ-ND300Aâ"™s hard disks store images transmitted by Ethernet, from up to 32 networked cameras. The WJ-ND300A is both MPEG-4 and JPEG compatible, and can be connected to up to 32 MPEG-4.Cameras can be conveniently monitored, controlled and reset from the PC display alone.

Users of the WJ-ND300A benefit further from its ease of installation - the Quick IP Setup feature automatically recognises Panasonicâ"™s i-Pro Series cameras as soon as they are connected to the network. Furthermore, Quick IP Setup eliminates the need to assign separate IP addresses for individual cameras. The optional RAID5 board also provides RAID5 support within the recorder itself.

The WJ-ND300A offers sizeable storage with the capability to add 27 hard disks using the optional WJ-HDE300 Extension Units. In addition, Panasonicâ"™s WV-ASM100 Management PC Software allows registration of up to 100 network recorders in a fully integrated system, including Panasonicâ"™s i-Pro Network Video Recorders WJ-ND200, WJ-ND300 Series, WJ-ND400 and Digital Disk Recorders, WJ-HD300A Series and WJ-RT416 Series.

With fewer cables, lower costs, flexible installation, and an impressive high frame rate, Panasonicâ"™s WJ-ND300A is the ideal solution for a number of security applications.


The Disk Recorder for MPEG4*/JPEG Network Cameras

Panasonic introduces the new WJ-ND300 Network Disk Recorder with support for up to 32 Ethernet-linked network cameras. This multifunction disk recorder offers high speed throughput, combining high image quality with the high frame rate. Plus, it gives you the full, IP-addressing capabilities required to maximize both flexibility and scalability. The possibilities are endless. From systems that exploit existing networks to high-performance systems using dedicated networks, even hybrid systems using analogue cameras, the WJ-ND300 meets security needs across a wide range of applications.


High Speed Throughput
WJ-ND300 is the latest fruit of Panasonicâ"™s relentless pursuit of higher network performance. Independent camera port and client PC port ensure high speed throughput for applications requiring high image quality, high frame rate and multi-channel capabilities.


RAID5 Built-In
The Optional RAID5 Board ; WJ-NDB301 enables high-level risk management by adding RAID5 capability to the WJ-ND300 itself.


Setup Couldnâ"™t Be Simpler
WJ-ND300 is equipped with a built-in Auto IP Setup feature that automatically assigns IP addresses to Panasonicâ"™s WV Series network cameras linked to the network. With no need to manually set each cameraâ"™s IP address, getting your system up and running is easy.


MPEG4*/JPEG Compatible
This disk recorder can be used with either MPEG4* or JPEG cameras or in systems combining both. This flexibility allows systems to be tailored precisely to user needs using various combinations of cameras.
*Firmware upgrade available in 1st Quarter 2006 to support MPEG4.


System Integration with WJ-HD300A Series
Optional Management PC Software WV-AS65 permits simultaneous use of up to 100 WJ-ND300 and WJ-HD300A Series Digital Disk Recorders. By making it easy to construct hybrid systems incorporating existing analogue equipment, it brings a new level of flexibility to surveillance and security management.


Benefits of Combining Highly Reliable Surveillance and IP Network


Use of a LAN allows cameras to be placed wherever you like. It also permits live monitoring, search, playback and recording from a personal computer.


Cost Efficiency
Because the WJ-ND300 utilized an existing network infrastructure, it sharply reduces costs in both time and money compared to systems that require dedicated cabling. The use of ordinary PCs eliminates the need for dedicated monitors. Plus, with hard disk storage, the burden of replacing video tapes or other consumables is also much lighter.


Use of an IP Network also reduces the number of steps required to add cameras and connect them to a hub. With our Optional WV-AS65 Management PC Software, systems can incorporate up to 100 WJ-ND300 Network Disk Recorders and up to 3,200 cameras.


Built with the Future in Mind
As digital networks become a pervasive component of contemporary life, the potential for networked video surveillance systems is huge. As an example, the WJ-ND300 is designed to take full advantage of new networking advances and to simplify, the integration of other surveillance applications (i.e. access control system).
