It’s time to move on to a new video compression standard, H.265! We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of TruVision NVR 22 (TVN 22), the first H.265 capable TruVision network video recorder.

Product & solution overview

The TVN 22 marks the start of the next generation of TruVision recorders. The recorder will replace the TVN 21 series by offering H.265 compatibility and better overall performance and functionality.

The overall performance of the TVN 22 has increased compared with the TVN 21: the recorder has a higher outgoing bandwidth (256 Mbps for each model), the incoming bandwidth for the 32 channel model is higher and we offer now also a 64 channel model.

Like the TVN 21, the TVN 22 contains the OH (Osborne-Hoffmann) alarm receiver module and offers basic integration between intrusion panels and video. The recorder can receive SIA or XSIA messages from UTC IP based alarm panels. The alarm messages, arming, disarming and heart beat messages can be linked to actions like alarm recording, sound the recorder’s buzzer, trigger an alarm output or control a PTZ dome (preset, shadow tour or preset tour). Messages from up to 3 different panels and up to 32 zones per panel can report to the recorder. The events can also be reported to TVRmobile via the Push Notification feature.

What is H.265? 
H.265 is the next evolution of video encoding. It reduces the file size by up to 50% compared to H.264, providing equal savings both in transmission bandwidth and storage capacity while maintaining equal or higher image quality. To use the H.265 encoding in the TVN 22, H.265 cameras need to be used. H.265 will be available in the TruVision S4 IP cameras that will be launched soon. The use of H.265 also allows for more efficient use of higher camera resolutions and frame rates. While providing H.265 capabilities, TVN 22 remains fully compatible with H.264 cameras, allowing for full support of both systems.

SDK support

Customers who are now using our TruVision SDK to create software that integrate with the recorders and cameras will need an updated version of the SDK when using the TVN 22 to be able to use the H.265 streams. Please check the validity of the NDAs that were signed for obtaining the initial SDK and if needed, renew the NDA for getting the updated SDK.
