Pelco Endura  DVR5300 Digital Video Recorder


Pelco Endura DVR5300 Series digital video recorders (DVR) represent a whole new concept in enterprise digital video recording solutions. It is one of the recording components of Endura™, Pelco’s most advanced integrated video security system. The DVR represents the state of the art in scalability, performance, expandability, and reliability. It is ideally suited for mission-critical, enterprise surveillance applications.

The Endura DVR5300 Series recorder is capable of continuous, scheduled, alarm/event, and motion recording. Pre- and post-alarm recording is also available. All recording is fully programmable on a per-channel basis. The unit maximizes storage efficiency using EnduraStor™, a time- and priority-based system that identifies data to be removed when stored video reaches a predefined age.

With EnduraStor, users no longer have to compromise on recorded frame rates to save on storage costs. EnduraStor gives users the ability to retain full frame rate recorded video for a user-defined period of time and then reduce the frame rate to save on storage costs.

Designed with reliability in mind, the DVR5300 Series provides performance enhancement and fault tolerance by employing RAID 5 disk management across as many as 12 hard drives. The DVR incorporates two RAID 5 controllers, each managing six hard drives, for up to 9Tb of internal storage capacity.

NOTE: Pelco Endura DVR5300 Series recorder supports hot-swappable hard drives in case of failure; it does not support hot hard drive expansion.

Dual redundant, hot-swappable power supplies add another layer of reliability to the unit. Support for matrix-enabled failover rounds out the reliability aspects of the DVR5300.

Diagnostics are systemized with other Pelco Endura products so that problems are reported to various network infrastructure-monitoring systems, allowing service technicians to diagnose and correct faults quickly. In addition, an advanced diagnostic monitoring capability lets users obtain real-time status information of critical performance parameters. This lets them correct problems before a fault occurs, ensuring maximum system reliability.

Together with the Pelco ENC5316 USB multichannel video recorder, the DVR5300 supports control of pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras. It supports Pelco D, Pelco P, and Coaxitron® protocols.

With Coaxitron, the DVR receives commands from a Pelco controller and transmits those commands to the PTZ device through the ENC5316. With the Pelco D and Pelco P protocols, the DVR transmits those commands directly to the PTZ device over a serial connection.

With its modular design, you can connect up to three ENC5316 units to each DVR5300 for a maximum of 48 analog video inputs per DVR. You can also mix NET5301T video recorders with the ENC5316s for a total of 48 analog and IP video inputs per DVR.

Video can be monitored and played back from the Pelco CM9700 Series (CM9760/9770/9780) matrix, a WS5050 Endura workstation, or a VCD5000 video console display.

The Pelco Endura DVR5300 Series integrates seamlessly with Pelco’s integrated security products to create a robust, secure, and expandable security platform.
