Synology announces VisualStation VS360HD
Durable PC-less live view and playback solution
Synology has released the new VisualStation VS360HD, a compact surveillance monitoring solution.
When paired with a Synology NVR running Surveillance Station, VS360HD is able to decode and display without latency up to 36 channels of HD video to a HDMI/VGA monitor, making it an ideal replacement for a costly computer.
Free from moving parts, VS360HD is more resistant against vibration and hardware failure. It is an ideal solution for surveillance monitoring at a front desk in a hotel, shop, or office building. The dual mirrored video output and USB ports also make VS360HD an affordable choice for TV Wall solutions. Its solid outer case and rigid design allows VS360HD to run within industrial temperature ranges from -20˚C to 50˚C.
“We’re very excited to release this new VisualStation. Completely redesigned, this latest iteration consumes 4.7W at full operation and is able to simultaneously display 36 camera streams,” said Chad Chiang, senior product manager at Synology, “VS360HD will give our customers unrivalled cost-effectiveness for their monitoring needs”.
VS360HD is suitable for both beginner and advanced users. The interface ensures easy access to the most common functions, such as Live View, Customizable Layout, and Timeline. The Recording List allows for browsing and exporting recordings. With a few simple clicks, useful camera angles can be saved and grouped together to form “Patrol” cycles.
With a total of three USB ports, the VS360HD can connect a mouse, keyboard, and even a joystick for PTZ control. The whole system fits in a palm-sized enclosure and can be easily attached to a wall or the back of a screen with the included VESA compatible mounting kit.
