Milton Keynes, United Kingdom - 8th January 2013—Synology ® Inc. today launched VisualStation VS240HD, a cost-effective surveillance solution designed for ease of multi-channel viewing on local HDMI displays.

VS240HD boasts powerful image decoding capability by supporting up to 24 channels of simultaneous high-definition viewing at 240 FPS in 720p. Dual HDMI video outputs make it an ideal surveillance solution for large-scale deployments, allowing users to stream high-quality footage to different screens in a state-of-the-art security control center.

Paired with Synology DiskStation or RackStation, VS240HD supports video streams in MJPEG, MPEG4, and H.264 compression formats, including audio. Pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras are also supported to offer extensive monitoring and object tracking.
