WJ-ND400 Description

High performance Network Disk Recorder for Megapixel i-Pro Network Cameras with 9 Serial ATA HDD slots

Large storage capacity 64 network cameras can be connected to the WJ-ND400 and their images and audio recorded simultaneously. Furthermore, equipped with a 500GB HDD and 8 additional HDD slots it allows up to 4.5 TB of HDD storage to be installed in the main unit. Further expansion up to 27 TB can be achieved by adding five optional WJ-HDE400 Hard Disk Expansion Units, each with 9 serial ATA HDD slots, making the WJ-ND400 ideal for large scale surveillance systems. With hot plug support, drives can be replaced without any downtime, allowing 24/7 operation.

Reliable For high reliability, the WJ-ND400 supports RAID 5/6; enabling image data to be stored across multiple HDDs (minimum 4 HDDs required). If one HDD (or two drives for RAID 6) should fail, recordings can be recovered from the remaining HDDs without any loss of data. The unit also features embedded OS and data encryption.

Versatile, Ease-of-use The WJ-ND400 is both MPEG-4 and JPEG compatible and enables versatile recording functions including manual, scheduled, emergency, event and external timer recording, providing unrivalled flexible recording options. With a range of alarm actions including alarm recording, e-mail notification, alarm message, terminal output, FTP transfer and camera positioning the recorder ensures that a moment is not missed by users of the system.

To search recordings the intelligent VMD function allows movement in a specified area in the recorded images to be quickly searched. In addition, the filtered search function can search a record by Time & Date, Event Type and Camera number.

Two network interfaces are provided on the recorder allowing the client network to be separated from the camera network. This ensures that the camera network performance is not impacted by users monitoring the system. This can also act as an additional security measure allowing cameras to be placed within a separate network with access only through the NVR.

Lowering set-up costs When i-Pro network cameras are connected to the WJ-ND400, their IP addresses can easily be obtained through the Easy IP Set-up feature. By reducing the time and labour required for network set-up, Easy IP Set-up lowers installation costs and maintenance costs.

The new concept NVR realises a level of usability never before experienced. The new Panasonic WJ-ND400 is a market leading network recorder, offering secure functionality and high reliability.
