  • Product Overview

    WECU Surveillance.com offers an extensive line of PC based Digital Video and Network Video Hybrid recorders (more than 35 models). The Medius Series is available in a Tower or Rack/Pedestal chassis. Each Medius series server supports up to 64 channels of full motion video recording with perfectly synchronized audio.

    Designed with mission critical applications in mind, video data can be optionally synchronized to operational events to within .0001 sec. Medius supports analog and IP video enabling video sources to be in the same building or anywhere in the world. When 64 cameras are not enough simply add more recorders and seamlessly connect to dozens, hundreds or thousands of cameras with our CONCERT Client software.

  • Quick Q & A

  • Q: What are the differences between CIF, 2CIF, 4CIF, QCIF, DCIF & D1 resolution?
  • A: Resolution and bit rate:

  • Resolution:
    • CIF – 352 x 240 pixels
    • 2CIF – 704 x 240 pixels
    • 4CIF – 704 x 480 pixels – has the best resolution
    • QCIF - 1076 x 120 pixels – Is almost never used
    • DCIF – 528 x 320 pixels
      • 2CIF and DCIF have the same # of pixels but the DCIF has a better aspect ratio (3x4)
    • D1 - 720 x 480 pixels - Is basically the same as 4CIF, different manufacturers apply different pixel x pixel but it is usually 16 pixels wider than 4CIF which is un-noticeable to the naked eye.

  • Bit Rate: Recommended Bit rates (higher motion requires higher bit rates)
    • CIF: 4fps: 160–320 kbps ~ 8fps: 224–448 kbps ~ 16fps: 320–640 kbps ~ 20fps: 384–768 kbps ~ 30fps: 448–896 kbps
    • DCIF: 4fps: 192-384 kbps ~ 8fps: 256-512 kbps ~ 16fps: 384-768 kbps ~ 20fps: 448–896 kbps ~ 30fps: 512-1024 kbps
    • 4CIF: 4fps: 320–640 kbps ~ 8fps: 512-1024 kbps ~ 16fps: 640-1280 kbps ~ 20fps: 896-1792 kbps ~ 30 fps: 1024-2048 kbps

  • The higher the resolution the larger the file size, the higher the resolution the clearer the image, just like a digital camera.
    DCIF (528 x 320), will give the best video quality in a Embedded DVR with 16 channels, we are currently working on providing 4CIF with DVD quality.

    Compression is a separate setting and in our hardware is independent of the resolution and frame rate setting. The three settings must be set with each of the other two settings in mind. Too much compression will result in a poor image, too low a frame rate setting will result in lots of missed action and too low a resolution will not deliver the image quality you desire.

  • Click hereto find the ideal settings with our H.264 HDD calculator

  • Bear in mind that if there is a PTZ or high motion, higher bit rates (lower compression) should be set.

    Further on the HDD space

    HDD space required is directly fixed to the bit rate and only the bit rate. Bit rate should be determined by the fps, resolution and image quality desired. We can set any bit rate 32kbps-2048kbps with any fps or resolution. The bit rate chosen with a given fps and resolution will dictate the image quality. So you see bit rate is what controls the HDD space needed, but we need to select a bit rate that will give the image quality desired at the programmed fps and resolution.

    For example you can set 4CIF, 30fps, 32kbps – useless video
    Or
    4CIF, 30fps 2048fps – best video

    The bit rate selection is what affects the image quality and the HDD space, the fps and resolution do not come into play on the actual calculation, but they are used to determine the bit rate required.

    So not factoring fps, resolution or image quality the h.264 system HDD space per hour per channel ranges from 14.4MB to 921MB. Obviously the higher the bit rate the better the image quality. The higher the resolution and fps the higher the bit rate needs to be to get the desired image quality.

    32kbps at CIF 1/16th fps is good quality, moving the fps up means moving the bit rate up. More motion needs more bit rate.

    Most people will be happy with settings between CIF 6 fps-96kbps to 20 fps-320 kbps on fixed cameras, with PTZ higher bit rates are needed.

  • Q. How much HDD space does the Audio take up in the recording?
  • A. 1 or 2% of the file size. Please note there is 2 way audio only, 1 mic, 1 speaker. Connection type: BNC In / Out

  • Q. What is your HDD warranty?
  • A. We offer a 5 year warranty on our HDDs, we supply 1 year warranty with RMA, and the remaining 4 years the HDD manufacturer takes care of you. Other companies usually only give you 30 day warranty total.

  • Q. What is the Difference between SCSI and iSCSI?
  • A. iSCSI is just software in the DVR/NVR and the hardware is external and connected via the network (LAN network), iSCSI is just software
