The G5 Series of digital video recorders (DVRs) by Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video of Irvine, Calif., employ Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, which doubles the performance of previous generation recorders, according to the company.
Using Microsoft Windows 7 as its operating system, the product also incorporates a DVI and HDMI monitor output for dual monitor output to large panel displays, and eSATA and USB3.0 ports for external storage. eSATA has transfer speeds of 3GB and USB3.0 has speeds of 5GB — 10x faster than USB 2.0 speeds of 480MBs.
The G5 Series comes in four models, including:
