Intransa announces widespread participation in IP storage certification program

Dozens of physical security vendors earn “Security-Grade IP Video Storage Certified” designation

SAN JOSE, California — March 31, 2008 --- Intransa , the global leader of shared, scalable and simple external IP storage solutions, today announced that over thirty physical security leaders and up-and-comers had now earned the coveted "Security-Grade IP Video Storage Certified" designation in the past six months. The innovative, first of its kind program for the physical security industry is designed to remove storage integration and performance concerns as obstacles for customers and security integrators to achieve the many benefits of IP storage and infrastructure.

As part of the certification process, physical security industry products including access control systems, card readers, digital video recorders, framework/infrastructure systems, IP network cameras, megapixel cameras, network and compression modules, network video recorders, physical security information managers, video analytics modules, workflow tools and complete systems have been tested and integrated successfully with Intransa EdgeBlock edge recording platforms and StorStac central repository and multi-site IP video storage platforms.

Participants in the program clearly see the value.

“VideoProtein works closely with industry leaders such as Intransa to continue to simplify the installation of IP storage in video surveillance environments,” said Anthony Pugliese, VideoProtein CEO. “The benefits of IP storage with video surveillance for our customers create a robust solution that is effective and efficiently meets their needs today and in the future. You'll be able to see that in action in our booth at ISC West.”

VideoProtein is exhibiting this week in booth number 5133 at the physical security industry's largest get together, ISC West Las Vegas, in a premier booth space shared with Intransa and Veracity USA, Inc. In a live example of IP integration benefits, Intransa storage will support VideoProtein 3.0 as the video management software, integrated with terabytes of IP storage, plus different brands of common DVRs and with IP network cameras from Arecont Vision, Axis Communications, IQinVision, and Mobotix.

“All the best IP technologies, including megapixel cameras, are now available to all without requiring new infrastructure for existing installations,” said Scott Sereboff, CEO of Veracity USA. “In addition, the newest devices can be run at distances greater than 1,000 feet over cat 5/6 cabling with simultaneous provision of LAN and up to class 3 PoE without use of any mid-span power. Intransa's Security-Grade IP Storage integration and certification program provides a scalable storage solution while Veracity USA provides the answer for IP cameras on new or existing infrastructure.”

“Veracity USA and Intransa provide a real solution for today's infrastructure with a clear path for tomorrow's systems,” added Sereboff.

The StorAlliance Technology Partner Lab is located at the company's San Jose, California research and development center. Intransa's shared, scalable and simple external IP storage scales from as little as 4 to 1,500TB of RAID protected, fault tolerant storage, ideal as a CCTV IP storage upgrade to extend the useful life and reliability of DVRs/NVRs, or as a complete IP video storage platform for new surveillance installations.
