Iomega StorCenter Network Storage Units Powered by Phoenix RSM
Provide Cost-Effective, Scalable Video Surveillance Management Capabilities
ASIS 2011 Expo – Orlando, FL – September 19, 2011 – SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage software solutions, has teamed with Iomega Corporation, an EMC company (NYSE: EMC), to bring to market a powerful new video surveillance solution. Utilizing the Iomega StorCenter™ product family of network attached storage (NAS) devices, together with SoleraTec’s Phoenix RSM™ application creates an ideal video surveillance platform for small and medium size businesses.
Unlike other surveillance oriented network video recorders (NVRs) the Iomega StorCenter combined with Phoenix RSM couples intuitive video surveillance management capabilities with dynamic scalability that does not compromise on quality or reliability.
When the Iomega StorCenter NAS units are coupled with the Phoenix RSM application, live-view monitoring of up to 16 channels with simultaneous recording becomes available. With dynamic scalability, organizations can quickly and easily add additional Iomega StorCenter devices for extra camera coverage or to extend the retention periods of the recorded video.
Along with the industry’s widest support for over 1,000 RTSP enabled IP cameras –from over 160 manufacturers– the Phoenix RSM powered Iomega StorCenter video surveillance solution can record the motion detection levels from supported cameras. At any point in time, based on the motion detection levels within the video, the solution allows for more relevant search and play back capabilities.
“Iomega’s StorCenter network storage products represent a compelling solution and a status quo change from traditional surveillance storage utilizing DVRs,” said Jonathan Huberman, president of Iomega. “With the power to support larger camera counts, the Iomega StorCenter network storage video surveillance units deliver the features and functionality needed by many of today’s small and medium sized businesses, at a fraction of the current cost of traditional solutions in the marketplace today.”
Another key advantage of the Phoenix RSM powered Iomega StorCenter NAS video surveillance solution is the optional support for Milestone. This module –available as a promotion through the end of 2011 at no additional cost– transforms an Iomega StorCenter NAS into a long-term retention and archiving extension for Milestone XProtect systems. Users can now affordably "pay as you grow" and continually expand their Milestone XProtect retention and archiving needs with ease.
“New technologies, new cameras, and demands for customer expansion all drive changes in a video management system. The strength of the Milestone open platform is the flexibility to adapt with these changes, and the Milestone partner ecosystem provides the choice of best-in-class solutions to do so,” adds Martin Friis-Mikkelsen, Milestone Solution Partner Program Manager at Milestone Systems. “The Iomega StorCenter NAS with SoleraTec allows customers the ability to expand incrementally and efficiently increase storage capacity.”
“Having the right solution that grows as your business does is critical in today’s competitive climate. Iomega’s StorCenter family of video surveillance solutions provides the right mix of functionality and affordability,” stated Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec. “With the ability to simply install additional StorCenter NAS units for expanded IP-camera support, and extend the retention and archiving periods, the ease of use and overall management of this solution is clearly first-class.”
Pricing and Availability
The Phoenix RSM LE edition software optimized for use with Iomega NAS starts at US$399.00 MSRP. The optional Milestone RSM-ME extension is US$495.00 (and is available at no additional charge to new Iomega NAS customers who activate their software through December 31, 2011). Iomega StorCenter NAS products are sold separately through the distribution channel and security and surveillance integrators. Phoenix RSM LE software is available through channel resellers and systems integrators or may be purchased directly at SoleraTec.com/Iomega.
