VNS V7500 Series NVRs deliver affordable, longer-term video
surveillance retention with removable, trackable drives
OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2015--
Imation (NYSE:IMN), a global data storage and information security
company, today announced it has partnered with Vista Networking
Solutions (VNS), provider of innovative network video recorder storage
devices, to engineer and bring to market a scalable and unique network
video recorder (NVR) storage solution. By integrating removable and
rugged RDX™ hard drive cartridges from Imation with
SoleraTec’s innovative and modular Phoenix RSM™ video
surveillance software, organizations now can deploy a solution
purpose-built for medium and long-term video surveillance storage and
maximize the security of their high-value data.
The scalability, flexibility and operational cost savings of using
integrated multi-tiered storage platforms and multi-stream IP cameras
provide a more affordable and easier to manage video surveillance
retention solution. These solutions also are capable of retaining and
managing video surveillance over several years instead of just days or
weeks. Users can choose low-resolution video settings on primary or
secondary storage and keep the RDX cartridges on the shelf where they
consume no electricity to further improve the total cost of ownership
for video surveillance retention.
“We are seeing market forces and company requirements push the retention
periods for video surveillance storage, and RDX technology delivers the
ease-of-use and peace-of-mind businesses need today,” said Michael
Mader, executive director of the Global Commercial Tape and RDX business
at Imation. “Video surveillance is an excellent market to showcase the
removability, capacity and affordable costs of RDX technology.”
Imation, with its RDX platform, provides a complete portfolio of
purpose-built storage solutions enabling users to deploy the right
storage products for the right application. Like with tape cartridges,
RDX removable hard drive cartridges can be rotated through a long-term
plan allowing re-use after the retention period has been exceeded.
Alternatively, users may elect to retain video permanently by using new
cartridges at each retention point.
“The VNS network video recorders with removable RDX storage technology
provide an excellent way for business owners to implement video
surveillance and retain the video as long as they wish,” said Mark
Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec. “The RDX removable cartridge is an
excellent video storage platform, and we are delighted to be partnering
with VNS and Imation on this solution.”
RDX media-based removable storage offers rugged, reliable and convenient
storage for all kinds of data assets, especially video assets. It
provides enterprise performance and fast access, with transfer rates of
up to 648GB/hr and capacities currently up to 2TB per cartridge. This
delivers an ideal video storage solution for today’s mid-size businesses
needing extra video retention periods.
“The design and deployment of these specific system solutions optimized
for RDX removable media allows our customers to choose a long-term
retention policy that is right for them,” said Graham Joys, president of
Vista Networking Solutions. “The flexibility to lay down low resolution
or high resolution video streams to the RDX cartridges and add RDX
cartridges over time provides a truly unique solution where customers
can store video for a few months or a few years depending on their
