Samsung Techwin, the Korean conglomerate's video cameras and security division, is announcing two sets of HD CCTV systems for security-conscious types who don't want to settle for a grainy VGA image. The eight-channel SDH-P4040 and 16-channel SDH-P5080 come with four (or eight for the superior model) "weatherproof" 720p nigh vision cameras with a range of 85 feet. Connect them up to the supplied DVR with a Cat5E cable and images can be instantly viewed with an iOS or Android app, and are kept on the 1TB SATA HDD for safe keeping -- and will be output to 1080p if you're watching at source. Both models will arrive in the spring, the 4040 marked up at $1,400 and the 5080 equating to $1,800 of those dollars you want to keep secure.

SAMSUNG TAKES HIGH-DEFINITION CCTV MONITORING MAINSTREAM
HD CCTV now accessible for the average consumer and small businesses owners with the new Samsung SDH-P4040 and SDH-P5080
LAS VEGAS – January 7, 2013 – Samsung Techwin America, a leader in consumer video monitoring and security products, further extends its portfolio of high-quality CCTV systems with the announcement of two new HDTV CCTV systems. Ideal for security applications where detail is of utmost importance - such as clearly viewing license plate numbers or closely monitoring retail transactions - Samsung's new 8channel (SDH-P4040) and 16-channel (SDH-P5080) systems give consumers the ability to record and view high-definition video in real time.
Representing the next generation of CCTV monitoring for home and business use, Samsung's new all-in-one HDTV kits deliver high-definition video recording and shatter the barrier to entry that once existed for these markets. Both systems offer four, outdoorready, 720p HD night vision bullet cameras (night vision up to 85 feet) that output full, uncompressed video without latency. For added flexibility and applications that demand support for additional cameras, the 16-channel system incorporates an additional four outdoor-ready night vision bullet cameras (600 TVL resolution / night vision up to 75 feet).
The HDTV cameras also excel in any lighting environment thanks to Samsung Super Dynamic Range (SSDR) and Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNR III) technologies. With SSDR, the HD cameras and automatically increase the brightness of the dark areas of the image without affecting the rest of the image, while SSNR III drastically reduces image noise to provide impressive color in low-light conditions.
"High-definition CCTV security systems provide exceptional clarity and performance; however, until today, price points have traditionally kept average consumers or small business owners from truly experiencing the benefits offered by such systems," said Mike Palazzolo, Vice President Sales and Marketing, consumer video monitoring and security products, Samsung Techwin America. "Without cutting any corners in regard to performance or features found in these two new kits, Samsung has now opened the door for all customers to further bolster their security setups with not only the precise detail afforded by high-definition imagery, but the wider field-of-view as well."
Installation of these do-it-yourself security kits is a breeze thanks to simple Cat5E cabling that offers a range up to 400 feet for HDTV cameras (no separate cable is required to power the cameras) and a robust feature set that takes the guess work and hassle out of integrating the system within one's network. The kits each offer a high-performance DVR that boasts a 1 TB surveillance class SATA hard disk for 24/7 recording and upconverts video footage to full 1080p HD for viewing on an HDTV.
Users also have the ability to remote access from anywhere at any time via desktop computer or using a free app available for Android and iOS devices. Furthermore, with Samsung's Quick Connect technology, the new HDTV CCTV systems will automatically configure the user's router and manage all required port forwarding so that all remote requests to access live feeds are directed to the appropriate connected camera on the network. Samsung's free DDNS service also ensures that dynamic IP addresses assigned by the user's ISP are recorded and updated accordingly so that the web portal can make the connection for those who wish to access the DVR from a location outside their network. For easier video exporting, Samsung has included two high speed USB 2.0 ports which are easily accessible on the front of the DVRs.
Navigating the system also proves easy thanks to Samsung's user-friendly SmartView video management software. With SmartView, users will be able to access multiple DVR systems from a single user interface. Advanced features include motion detection, camera tampering alerts, and privacy masking.
The Samsung SDH-P4040 and SDH-P5080 will be available spring 2013 and will retail for $1,399.00 and $1,799.00, respectively.
