TAS2900-XP by UNITEX Corporation and its integration with Milestone XProtect VMSs, provide a cost-efficient solution for long-term retention of video from IP Video Management Systems.

TAS2900-XP is a system to archive large amounts of video data recorded by Milestone XProtect® to LTO tape and manage it by using UNITEX LT70/LTO-7 tape drive and LTFS format software.

Key Features

1) Archive

  • UNITEX TAS2900-XP archives and exports video from the XProtect recording server for any given period on a per-camera-basis.
  • All the archived video data are managed by history data management. It also avoids duplicating archived video data.
  • As UNITEX TAS2900-XP does not make any modifications/deletions of recorded data on the XProtect recording server, it does not affect the XProtect system.
  • A message for request for replacing LTO tape is displayed when a LTO tape is full. In case of LTO tape library system, a full tape is automatically replaced by a new (empty) tape.

2) Retrieve

  • Enables video data retrieval & playback of archived data and copy to any folder which you specify
  • Enables video data retrieval by camera name, recorded date, volume name of media, barcode, etc.
  • Playback is done via the Milestone Smart Client Player. Archived data is copied from LTO tape to PC hard disk temporarily on playback. It is deleted after playback ends.
