Product Description

The OpenEye MV-Series is a compact and cost-effective cloud-managed video recording appliance with an optional integrated PoE switch for single cable IP camera installation. MV-Series appliances support up to a maximum of 24 recording channels per appliance, and a maximum 100Mbps of recording throughput. Models are available with 8 or 16 integrated PoE ports, or customers can choose their own switch hardware and select the non-PoE model with dedicated camera NIC. The MV-Series is ideal for installations where users want an added layer of security, or want to limit the impact of IP video bandwidth on their primary network by isolating cameras to the integrated PoE switch or dedicated camera NIC on non-PoE models. MV-Series appliances with integrated PoE ports allow users to view per port diagnostics and power consumption, as well as power cycle ports for remote troubleshooting before a site visit. NDAA compliant with up to 20TB of internal storage, the MV-Series features a sleek, low profile 1U chassis with optional rack mounts, and is capable of supporting up to 24 channels of recorded video per system.
