New Intransa VideoAppliances combine VMS with storage

Videoappliances cut cost and eliminate complexity for simple, high-performance surveillance


Intransa VideoAppliance Features

Built in hot-swap recording capacity with enterprise-grade components ensures non-stop recording, while advanced RAID protection eliminates the risk of lost video. For maximum uptime, the VA200 goes even further, with fully redundant, hot-swap power supplies and fans for fault resilient operation for the most demanding environments.

Each VA100 and VA200 appliance comes equipped with 2 or 4 terabytes (TB) of video retention for a few days to a month or more of recording capacity, depending upon actual configuration, number of IP cameras and other settings. A modular VA expander can be added to increase recording capacity by another 6 or 12TB in just 2U of rack space (3.5" high by 19" wide) without halting operation.

Both Intransa VideoAppliances offer outstanding performance in support of IP cameras and when used as a CCTV upgrade, for DVRs as well. The VA100 delivers 750 FPS at 4CIF with MJPEG or 1,500 FPS at 4CIF with MPEG4. The VA200 offers 900 FPS at 4CIF with MJPEG or 1,800 FPS at 4CIF with MPEG4. Performance may vary based upon actual configuration, VMS selection, and camera types.

Intransa VideoAppliance VA10, VA20 and VA30 platforms can also be deployed in conjunction with the new VA100 and VA200 as well as in their traditional use with external Intransa Video Data Management & Retention (VDMR) platforms, scaling from 2 to 1,500TB of video recording/playback capacity. Each VA10, VA20 or VA30 can host another licensed copy of the VMS system, adding additional camera support very affordably and further reducing the need for commodity servers and hardware while leveraging the recording capacity of the VA100 and VA200. They can also be used for other related purposes, such as directory servers.

Each member of the Intransa VideoAppliance family is available with Microsoft Windows Vista(R) Business, and many models have an optional upgrade available to Microsoft Windows Server 2003. This standard Microsoft operating system environment allows adherence to the corporate network and cyber security standards and support models common in larger organizations.

All Intransa VideoAppliances include a full, three year hardware warranty plus a year of software updates and enhancements, for worry free operation.
