Continuous video feeds - Continuous storage solutionsAs demand for digital video applications grows, so too does the need for reliable, high volume network video storage solutions. Although modern video compression techniques help to reduce the size of video files, video remains extremely storage-intensive, especially in applications like video surveillance where multiple cameras are capturing video continuously, 24 hours a day.
There are a number of solutions for digital video storage, including tape backup, DVD backup, and network storage appliances with inexpensive, replaceable hard drives. The advantages of network video storage include scalability, ease of installation and maintenance-free operation, and automatic backup and redundancy features such as RAID technology. Additionally, as hard drive prices continue dropping, the value of replaceable hard drive storage grows even more.
But the biggest advantage of network video storage over offline storage is that the data remains accessible on the network. If Ethernet enabled, users can connect digital video recorders and network storage appliances to the network and assign IP addresses. Then, authorized network users can access both the cameras and the storage appliances directly from a PC to view both live and recorded video from anywhere on the network.
Lanner network video storage solutions support the latest storage technologies such as SAS and SATA II hard drives, hardware RAID controllers and rapid transfer speeds with GbE network ports. Simple installation, web-based maintenance interface and expansion options for future scalability add to the list of advanced features. With Lanner network video storage solutions, you can ensure that your video data will be where you need it, when you need it.
