Intransa's StorAlliance Technology Certification program expands

Program ensures risk-free, cost-effective surveillance solutions

SAN JOSE, California – March 26, 2009 – Intransa, the leader in video data management and retention for physical security, today announced that its StorAlliance Technology Certification program has continued to expand with additional physical security vendors now participating. Many members of the StorAlliance are joining Intransa in demoing risk-free, integrated solutions in their respective booths at ISC West, taking place April 1-3, 2009, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The popular and fast growing technology alliance eliminates compatibility guess-work for security practitioners, dealers, integrators and consultants by providing them with complete, risk-free IP-based solutions, including video retention and management, with proven, tested security applications from leading and up-and-coming vendors.

StorAlliance members have experienced the cost savings, reliability and enhancements that Intransa video surveillance-optimized solutions bring for existing surveillance systems with one or more DVRs or for new, all-IP solutions. Most StorAlliance members have already deployed at least one, and often many, solutions integrated with Intransa. The benefits explain the rapidly growing market acceptance for Intransa solutions and the increased number of police departments, casinos and hotels, airports, movie studios, retailers, hospitals, public utilities, Native American institutions, correctional facilities, auto dealers, digital entertainment distributors, telecommunications providers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, financial services companies, universities/colleges, municipalities and county governments that have deployed Intransa solutions, regardless of today’s challenging economic times.

Intransa’s StorAlliance Technology Certification program includes participation from vendors of IP and megapixel cameras, video management systems, physical security information managers, access control, life safety, network intercom, and other security applications. Organizations that complete the program are certified compatible for risk-free integration, and are able to deliver complete IP solutions that leverage Intransa’s Smart CCTV upgrades for existing surveillance systems and all-IP solutions for NVRs, VMS and PSIM systems for new security deployments.

“StorAlliance Certification makes it easier than ever before for physical security practitioners to install security solutions from multiple vendors that have already been tested for compatibility,” said Manqing Liu, senior director, interoperability and performance science, Intransa StorAlliance Labs. “This not only saves a customer and integrator time, but it also saves them money and eliminates potential after-installation headaches. Intransa and our StorAlliance partners are committed to making integration and installation easier and risk-free, and in today’s environment that makes a big difference.”

More than 150 physical security, imaging and technology products have been certified through the Intransa StorAlliance Labs. Products covered include DVRs, NVRs, Open NVRs, VMS, PSIM, IP and megapixel cameras, infrastructure providers, video analytics and physical security utilities, access control, authentication, biometrics, life safety, imaging, networking, platform and other technology solutions. IP-enabled devices and products certified also include IT solutions, network intercom, paging, entertainment, A/V systems, POS and EAS solutions, plus other non-security devices.
