Iomega partners with Axis Communications

Company's StorCenter products integrated with the AXIS Video Hosting System


In video storage terms, users monitoring even a busy scene can expect approximately 40 days worth of storage for four cameras recording to 4TBs of usable capacity at typical default settings (640x480, 30% compression, and full frame rate). To maximize storage functionality, integrators can work with end-users to set event-based recording triggers that will stream higher quality, HDTV or megapixel video to the device on motion or audio detection, for example.

In the second half of 2011, Iomega will integrate the AVHS client into its rackmount network storage products, including the four-drive Iomega StorCenter ix4-200r, with up to 8TB of networked storage capacity; and the 12-drive Iomega StorCenter ix12-300r, with up to 24TB of networked storage capacity.

An Integrator’s Take on New Iomega-Axis Hosted Video Surveillance Solution
"Iomega’s unique StorCenter devices are proof that end-users are the ultimate beneficiary when the physical security industry works closely with innovations driven from the IT and consumer worlds," said Phil Atteberry, director of Managed Security Solutions, Siemens Industry, Inc. "Those customers operating limited surveillance assets are no longer confined to using analog technology because of cost. They now have the option to reap all the benefits of IP surveillance at an attractive price."

The combination of Iomega StorCenter storage devices and Axis network cameras allows customers to select different recording and retention policies for both on-site and off-site video files, and also allows remote access from any web browser. The solution enables businesses to leverage the power and cost effectiveness of cloud services, or select a proprietary onsite system with the StorCenter unit acting as the NAS. Hosted video customers will pay for only the storage they need, allowing them to grow their infrastructure without requiring additional capital investment. Deployment times will also be greatly reduced due to limited infrastructure requirements.
