Iomega Corporation(®), a global leader in data protection, today announced the new Iomega(®) StorCenter(TM) Network Video Recorder, a customized lineup of all-in-one video surveillance network storage and management solutions designed specifically for small to medium-sized businesses and distributed enterprise.
The new Iomega StorCenter NVR products, expected to be available next month, are built especially for the video surveillance industry and its customers. Features like direct connection to a VGA monitor for local live display of surveillance video, and a streamlined setup process improve Iomega’s theft deterrent capability. Additionally, the new Iomega StorCenter NVR products make for simple implementation for the channel surveillance installer.
The Iomega StorCenter NVR family, on display this week at the ASIS 2012 International Tradeshow in Philadelphia, includes a fully-populated two-drive model as well as partial and fully-populated four-drive models for up to 12TBs of network storage. Each Iomega StorCenter NVR includes either four or eight camera licenses (depending on the model).
A complete integrated video management system (IVMS) solution that combines innovative network storage with video management software MindTree SecureMind Surveillance Manager, the new Iomega StorCenter NVR is an ideal option for businesses and distributed enterprise locations that prefer to manage their own reliable video surveillance system onsite at an economical price.
“The new Iomega StorCenter Network Video Recorder is the ideal integrated video management system for today’s small and mid-sized businesses, retail chains and remote enterprise offices, providing an easy to deploy, high performance and reliable video surveillance solution,” said Mike Nikzad, Chief Operating Officer, Iomega Corporation. “Combining versatile network storage with a leading video management application, Iomega’s new StorCenter NVRs provide a compelling alternative solution to traditional NVR products. With server class hard drives and the option for offsite cloud storage, just to name a few important features, the Iomega StorCenter NVR can grow with the video surveillance needs of our customers.”
“Engineering a security surveillance solution that is dependable and has the right mix of features and capabilities for expert small- to mid-sized camera installations is no small undertaking,” said Tom Burns, director and general manager, Physical Security, Ingram Micro North America, one of Iomega’s top distribution partners. “The straight-forward setup process within Iomega’s new StorCenter NVRs not only simplifies the job of the surveillance installer, which is always important, but it also gives the technician or end-user more control and confidence by providing the ability to adjust and monitor the system offsite with a smart device. Remotely managed security solutions are a growing field of interest and opportunity for our channel partners and a category where Ingram Micro is expanding its portfolio and support services.”
Key Features of the New Iomega StorCenter Network Video Recorder (NVR)
