Johnson Controls introduces a new line of high-capacity, front-accessible hard disk drive (HDD) recorders within its exacqVision A-Series portfolio in response to the increasing demands for video storage expansion. The use of video surveillance to detect, deter and prosecute crime has grown significantly, and increases in camera resolutions and frame rates have caused the need for video storage to surge at an unprecedented rate.
Wanted: a solution to the growing storage capacity and management problems at law enforcement agencies around the U.S. As agencies increasingly deploy body-worn cameras (BWCs) and dash cams to better protect and serve their communities, they encounter a significant obstacle: the high cost, complexity and compliance of storing video surveillance footage. StorageCraft is addressing this challenge with an innovative solution that meets the storage demands of law enforcement surveillance. Can StorageCraft be the answer?
Dahua Technology’s new H.265 XVR series is an ideal choice for customers seeking better video quality with less storage requirements, wider compatibility, and intelligent functionality. As a highly efficient video coding format, the HDCVI-H.265 codec is able to deliver a better compression ratio without sacrificing image quality, and has therefore been widely used by the surveillance industry in recent years.
According to research, GCC Video Surveillance Storage market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during 2017-2023. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have experienced a setback in video surveillance storage market in the last two years due to decline in oil prices. However, the market is expected to recover from 2017 onwards. Expansion and construction of new hotels, shopping malls and public infrastructures across GCC countries would spur the video surveillance storage market in GCC countries.
Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Group, a business unit of Toshiba Information Systems, Inc., has expanded its line of Percept cloud-powered network video recorders designed to enhance the management of IP video networks. Percept has a universal sign-on that lets users access their recorders from anywhere, with almost any device. This does away with the integration hassles common with IP networks, so tech support time is reduced, plus system authorization is better safeguarded by the elimination of improperly stored passwords. Percept NVRs make it easier to export, share, and download video to the cloud, and to monitor the health of the recorder remotely using Toshiba’s MySurveillix service.
LTO storage technology expanded its reach in 2016 effectively addressing many data intensive markets including cloud, entertainment, video surveillance, hyperscale data centers, High Performance Computing (HPC), and the Internet along with large-scale data intensive applications such as big data, backup, recovery, long-term archive, disaster recovery, and government compliance while positioning for the unknown appetite of the IoT. The LTO tape industry has been fueled by a decade of strong technological development and continues to play a major role for its traditional backup and disaster recovery services in addition to effectively addressing many new large-scale storage requirements. Demand for LTO tape is being fueled by unrelenting data growth, significant technological advancements, LTO tape’s highly favorable economics, low energy requirements, and the growing regulatory and business requirements to maintain “access to data forever.” Steady improvements have made LTO tape technology the most reliable storage medium available, now surpassing the reliability of HDDs by three orders of magnitude. Disk technology has been advancing, but LTO tape’s progress over the last ten years has been even greater.
Promise Technology, the developer of the open storage platform for video surveillance, will be at ISC West showcasing its complete portfolio of servers and storage solutions in demonstrations together with its Video Management Software (VMS), Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) and IP Camera partners, including Axis, AxxonSoft, Bosch, Digifort, Ipsotek, IronYun, Milestone, OnSSI, and Toshiba. Promise will be at ISC West, Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, booth number 22059.
As part of this year’s ISC West expo, BDT Products will host a separate technology roundtable for VMS software manufacturers. This technology roundtable will discuss viable video surveillance storage techniques and how VMS software vendors could enable the utilization of time-tested storage technologies. An industry that mimics the video surveillance market, Hollywood’s Media and Entertainment industry, has been using these types of video storage technologies for over a decade. Unfortunately, the video surveillance industry seems intent on learning things the hard way and has yet to embrace such long-term, viable, low-cost, storage platforms. BDT invites VMS software vendors to join them at ISC West, Las Vegas, NV, April 5, at 3:00pm. Contact Douglas Bass at Douglas_Bass@bdtp.com to reserve a seat at the meeting.
BDT Products, a data storage automation original equipment manufacturer celebrating its 50th anniversary delivering quality engineered products, will highlight a video surveillance storage solution that utilizes low-cost LTO technology at this year’s ISC West. This video surveillance storage solution focuses on customers that have larger camera counts, implementing higher resolution levels, and/or needing longer-term retention. Typically, a storage challenge for such situations but BDT will share their expertise and technology with visitors to booth 30110 at ISC West 2017 expo in Las Vegas.
The adoption of high-definition cameras, increasing device connectivity, and the shift from analog to IP technologies are causing complex stores of video surveillance data to expand at an exponential pace. As the costs and complexity of video surveillance storage architectures grow at the same rate as the data itself, organizations are seeking new ways to intelligently store and manage these rising data volumes. However, many organizations struggle to adapt to the evolving storage requirements associated with exploding data volumes, advancing camera technologies, and an expanding number of cutting-edge use cases.
