PSN 4 delivers real-time, evidential quality recording of SD, HD and 4K video streams from a variety of proprietary and third-party cameras and encoders, including ONVIF compatible devices.
Available in a short form factor, the PSN 4 is engineered with non-proprietary enterprise class components for high speed performance and ease of maintenance ensuring exceptional data throughput and reliability.

Flexible Storage Options
The variety of storage capacities (from 4TB – 200TB) provides improved cost per TB across the PSN 4 product range. Customers can select the ‘per unit’ storage size to meet their site
needs; such as large-scale multi-site deployments, or specific storage demands that require high resilience and redundancy, or economic use of rack space.

Enterprise-Class Technology for Redundancy and
Redundancy is delivered via auto-rebuild storage arrays using 4, 6 ,8, 10, 14 or 16TB hard drives which can be hot swapped during live operation to minimise downtime, while dual hot swap power supplies, error-correcting code RAM and 10 Gigabit network connections ensure optimum resilience and uptime for mission critical sites.

The PSN 4 self-monitors server components and data integrity with automated user notification of critical errors and manages the auto restart sequence in the event of a catastrophic failure such as power loss. Through Synergy 3 command and control platform, further safeguards can be configured for additional redundancy and resilience including camera prioritization to ensure the storage of high-value video footage and many-to-many server failover.

Storage Management to Meet Your Needs
Synectics flexible, user-friendly storage management software allows users to individually configure each video stream’s frame rate, resolution, retention and data rate. Streams can be configured to record real-time or time lapse frame rates.

Every recorded video stream is authenticated to 256-bit using SHA-2 hashing, applied at the point of recording ensuring video authenticity throughout its evidential life.

High Data Throughput for Evolved Performance
The large storage capacity available with the PSN 4 is complimented by high throughput capability with up to 700 Mbps of continuous data input foreach device. Throughput is optimally managed to enable the received videodata to be re-broadcast to a maximumof 384 Mbps via multiple streams.

Individual streams can be configured as per user preference for complete control, and this feature is particularly useful where network bandwidths are limited and streaming is normally restricted to the camera capability.

Network Video Protection
As video is increasingly being capturedat the edge and transmitted across networks, protection against video loss in the event of network failure is essential. PSN 4 is  compatible with Synectics Backfilling technology whichprovides uninterrupted local device recording to protect data in the event of a network failure. Synectics IP cameras, equipped with local recordingstorage media, can be configured in Synergy 3 to record constantly or when a network fails. Upon network restoration, Synergy 3 identifies any missing video on the networked storage servers and then automatically‘backfills’ or copies the appropriate video from IP camera or edge-encodeddevices back onto the storage devices.

Video data is seamlessly and continuously restored to ensure there is no video loss.
