This flexible network storage surveillance SKU can be expanded with additional hard disk drives (HDDs) and/or licenses for additional camera channels.
The MindTree SecureMind Surveillance Manager software is ideal for small to mid-level camera count installations and now available to the Iomega worldwide network of distributors and resellers. Iomega’s channel partners can purchase MindTree SecureMind video management software directly from Iomega along with Iomega’s broad line of StorCenter network storage products to create a complete solution for the recording, management and access of surveillance video information. The combined solution, targeted for stand-alone surveillance applications of 48 cameras (channels) or less, is ideal for small to medium businesses (SMB) and distributed enterprise environments.
