Mitsubishi announces new storage expansion units for DVRs

Mitsubishi digital security solutions capable of delivering 368 terabytes of data storage


2008 ISC West Expo — LAS VEGAS, Nevada, April 2, 2008 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Imaging Products Division today announced availability of its new DX-ZD6UE storage expansion unit for DX-TL4500U, DX-TL4700U and DX-TL5000U DVRs. The expansion units may be used in a cascading network of 16 DX-TL5000U DVRs, increasing possible total storage to 368 terabytes—highest in the digital security industry.

Like its predecessor the DX-ZD5UE, the DX-ZD6UE was designed to increase the storage capacity for the DX-TL5000U, DX-TL4700U and DX-TL4500U series DVR recorders. However, the new units feature increased storage capacity in both one terabyte and 1.5 terabyte models. Up to 14 DX-ZD6UE units may be added to a single DVR for a possible combined total of 21 terabytes of additional storage.

This increased capacity allows users to build systems with up to 368 terabytes of total storage by taking advantage of the cascading capabilities of Mitsubishi's DX-TL5000 DVR. When 16 DX-TL5000s featuring two terabytes standard storage are combined with 14 DX-ZD6UE expansion units and then connected in a cascading network, the result is a single system that can hold 368 terabytes of information, operate up to 256 cameras, and can be controlled and monitored from a single station.

"The DX-ZD6UE allows our customers to approach digital storage the way they approach other aspects of their digital security, by adding and customizing solutions to meet their exact needs," said Jeff Kiuchi, product specialist, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America Imaging Products Division. "Mitsubishi is dedicated to providing solutions that scale to customer demand and with the DX-ZD6UE they can have a little extra storage or build a system tailored for massive storage—whatever works best."
