BASys Max Tribrid Server General Specifications

  1. General BASys Max Tribrid Server Specifications

The BASys Max Tribird Digital Video Server (hereafter referred to as TDVS)  shall provide a truly flexible CCTV security solution.  Allowing the use of analog and HD-SDI coax based video cameras, analog up to WD1 resolution, and allow the use of  IP Devices including IP cameras, encoders, and third Party IP (ONVIF and PSIA) devices to provide audio and video.  The TDVS shall provide an intuitive interface allowing easy local and remote live viewing and playback of video and audio.

The TDVS shall provide high quality H.264 hardware compression for video and audio input from 4 to 64 inputs per 4U rack mount case.  Each channel of high quality video shall be able to record at 30 frames per second and up to WD1 Resolution  (960x526) resolution for analog coax based cameras. Each channel of high definition video shall be able to record at 30 frames per second progressive scan and up to 1080p (1920x1080) resolution for HD-SDI coax based cameras.  Each IP channel should be able to accept up to a 5 Mega Pixel stream. Also each channel’s quality, frame ratios, frames per second, alarm status, camera name, motion settings, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, resolution, and network bandwidth shall be configurable independently.

The internal hard disks shall provide high quality, continuous digital recording.  Up to 10 SATA hard drives can be on the motherboard hard drive controller providing up to 40Tb of hard drive space.  The motherboard controller can also be configured to run in a RAID RAID 0,1,5,50 configuration.

High quality H.264 video and audio recordings shall be accessible locally to the user from a powerful and easy to use GUI (Graphical User Interface) with the ability to search by camera name, date, times, events or thumbnail images.  Remote operators shall also be able to utilize the same live and playback software GUIs that are available local to the VMS so that only one interface needs to be learned.  The TDVS should not require any software licenses to remotely access the system.  TDVS video can also be displayed via advanced H.264 hardware decompression to standard NTSC monitors, HDMI Monitor, DVI Monitors, VGA Monitors or Display Port Monitors making a virtual matrix control using optional hardware either in the TDVS system, remote workstation, or IP Decoder Devices.

Variable alarm configuration shall allow remote notification of alarms via a variety of communication channels.  Alarm data can be sent or received by but is not limited to text, via TCP/IP, RS-232 inputs, RS-485 inputs, RS-422 inputs, meta data, normally open contacts, normally closed contacts, video loss events, motion data, input from IP Encoders and IP Cameras.

The TDVS shall be supplied with a built in DVD-R/RW writer providing a quick and easy solution for copying video and audio from the TDVS.  The TDVS can also use third party software to archive video and audio external hard drive arrays or to network attached storage devices.

The TDVS shall support digital watermarking to help identify and eliminate any tampering with the recorded video and audio.


All equipment and materials used shall be standard components that are regularly manufactured and used in the manufacture’s system. All components of the system shall conform to all FCC, ROHS and CE standards.

  1. TDVS Hardware Capabilities
  1. The TDVS shall utilize advanced hardware H.264 DSP compression and decompression, allowing the computers CPU to run only 1% - 5% utilization producing less heat and increasing the life span of the TDVS.
  2. Allow the end user the ability to install any third party virus software, monitoring software or any other requirements that may be in place, without affecting the performance or operation of the TDVS.
  3. The ability to add off the shelf additional hard drives for increasing the amount of storage space.  The TDVS shall not require any type of license or proprietary hardware for upgrading the amount of storage space in a TDVS.
  4. The TDVS shall have the ability to automatically detect and switch between 110 Volt and 220 Volt power sources with no user intervention.
  5. The TDVS shall have the ability to record, transmit and switch between both PAL and NTSC video standards.
  6. The TDVS shall have the ability to record, transmit and switch between 1080p, 1080i, 720p HD-SDI formats and video formats.

General System Requirements

  1. The TDVS shall allow the recording, live viewing, and playback of recorded video.  Storage for a minimum of 30 frames per second per camera with synchronized audio for a period of thirty days without the need for offline storage to removable media.  The system shall perform all viewing, playback and video storage functions simultaneously.
  2. The TDVS shall be configured with control software and shall be capable of recording video continuously, during alarm events, or while activity is present.
  3. TDVS software shall allow search and retrieval of stored video.  The user shall be provided time and date of the video that was captured, whether alarm or motion events occurred and which camera captured the video.  The software shall provide video storage management, hardware control, alarm configuration and export of video and individual frames.  The system, as installed, shall allow the viewing of live or recorded video over standard network or modem connections, with proper authentication.  The video can be viewed and searched from anywhere at any time.
  4. The system must store and compress video and audio data using hardware based H.264 compression.
  5. The system must be able to transmit network data via TCP, UDP, and RTP.

 TDVS Software Requirements

  1. The TDVS shall be capable of recording all IP and coax based data either from a IP Camera, IP Encoder, and PC Based TDVS or IP Embedded system.
  2. The TDVS shall not require any type of license to add an IP camera or device to the software for recording, playback or control functions.
  3. The TDVS shall be capable of recording coax based analog WD1 signals and coax based HD-SDI 1080p streams from internal PCIe capture cards.
