In 2009, Tom Larson co-founded a business that would deliver physical security solutions based on I.T. technology (always interesting that our industry latched onto the phrase IP-based solutions – instead of IT-based solutions). The challenge with such new technologies, is that those individuals already in the industry have a hard time picking up new technologies. Larson, a technical geek, has been in the industry in one way or another for 26 years.
BCDVideo is marking its 20th year in business at the GSX 2019. Since its founding in 1999, BCDVideo has evolved into a multinational hardware manufacturer with close to 100,000 systems currently recording video surveillance in 75 countries. BCDVideo’s customer-first approach has allowed the company to become a trusted source for security integrators seeking innovative and purpose-built video data infrastructure and appliances.
BCDVideo and Scale Computing announced the certification of BCDVideo’s new Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS). Developed over the last year and underpinned by Scale’s HC3 software, BCD218-HCI Series, built on a Dell OEM technology foundation, offers modularity and ease-of-use without sacrificing performance and quality. Initial tests of the solution, configured with Genetec’s Security Center software.
BCDVideo announced an exclusive technology and engineering partnership enabling BCDVideo to deliver turnkey hyperconverged solutions based on Scale Computing’s HC3™ software to BCDVideo’s global network of security integrators and OEM customers. There is a clear gap in the market for a simple, deployable hyperconverged video solution, BCDVideo and Scale spent the last year co-developing and certifying a platform which fits seamlessly into the BCDVideo product philosophy of lessening the Total Cost of Ownership, and meets the security integrators needs for performance, scalability and simplicity, all in a single platform.
Whether you really know BCDVideo, you better not underestimate them nor ignore their impact on our industry. BCDVideo has become the security integrator’s choice for IP video surveillance solutions. Maybe flying just under the radar of many top-flight players in the physical security industry, BCDVideo has seen some impressive growth. Formed in 1999, BCDVideo is a physical security vendor that has seen some incredible growth over the past decade and a half. Late in 2017, BCDVideo made a major upgrade when they moved into their new, spacious company headquarters in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.
