Important considerations for storing huge volumes of video archives include simplicity, scalability, and affordability. IBM Storage, including IBM Storwize systems, provide a cost-effective platform for online storage.
CNL Software, the world’s leading pure play Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) provider is pleased to announce it has entered a technology collaboration with the leading developer of open storage platforms for video surveillance, Promise Technology.
March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to introduce a new hybrid video recording platform able to support high-definition (HD) analog video in addition to all-IP and standard analog video channels. The new March Networks 8724 V Hybrid Network Video Recorder (NVR) provides organizations with the custom combination of video capture they need right out of the box. It enables them to get sharp HD video using existing analog infrastructure, while avoiding the cost and disruption typically required to replace coaxial cable with Ethernet.
Surveon Technology, the enterprise NVR solutions provider, announced it NVRs will start to support H.265 cameras. H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as HEVC) is a video compression standard whose predecessor is H.264, supporting up to 300fps and 8K, and ensuring to deliver video quality identical to H.264 at only the half of bit rate. Supporting H.265 cameras, Surveon NVR allows partners to save on their budget while extending the retention days of video without expanding the capacity of storage.
XenData, the global provider of high capacity data storage solutions, launches its CX-10 Appliance, which can manage a single hybrid file system across two storage tiers: 10 TB of on-premises RAID and unlimited Microsoft Azure blob storage. The appliance allows existing file-based applications to use cloud storage without the need for modification. The CX-10 has highly configurable RAID retention policies that determine which files are written to the cloud, local RAID, or both allowing users to set policy rules for different file types and folders.
With Homeland Security and Public Safety organizations exploring new ways to use big data and data analytics, data storage is no longer just a place to save information; it’s an enabler—a platform that can help government and law enforcement officials achieve better airport and border security. – Quantun’s Wayne Arvidson discusses video surveillance long-term retention storage strategies.
Dahua Technology USA, a leading manufacturer of video surveillance solutions proven the world over, has introduced three new Network Video Recorders (NVRs) to provide a more expansive feature set within their Lite Series and Pro Series product families. The N42, N52, and N54 models have a higher number of PoE ports than their predecessors, and they support the industry’s latest compression codec: Dahua’s optimized Smart H.265+.
Most large scale and critical projects such as smart cities and commercial buildings are requiring longer term recording and longer data retention capabilities. To fulfill those projects’ need while reducing the total cost of increasing storage demands, multiple storage expansion solutions based on different storage architectures such as DAS, SAN, and NAS are designed by IT pros. Surveon provides the budget-saving storage expansion solutions that allow partners to expand the storage capacity in batches, giving partners the more convenient and flexible choices to meet the increasing requirements of the projects.
Dahua Technology, a leading solution provider in global video surveillance industry, announced that its Eco-Savvy 3.0, H.265 Wi-Fi and H.265 PTZ series network cameras are now compatible with QNAP’s NAS surveillance applications. Featuring H.265 compression technology, Dahua’s network cameras ensure video recording with lower bandwidth and greater security efficiency. QNAP surveillance applications integrate comprehensive video surveillance features into NAS system, providing storage expandability and storage space management functions to surveillance users.
OnSSI and Seagate have teamed up to provide security professionals with a robust recording solution designed for more efficient system expansion and scalability. The integration of OnSSI’s Ocularis VMS and Seagate’s RealStor™ SAN storage system allows users to expand their systems with increased recording capacities as needed, while ensuring seamless continuity and manageability.
