Intransa announces widespread participation in IP storage certification program

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

Proximex participated with Intransa recently in the Global Security Operations (GSO) 2010 conference event held at The Home Depot headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Proximex software was demonstrated at the show, running on Intransa IP storage, as part of the hands-on technology lab and leveraging multi-vendor experience gained in the Security-Grade IP Video Storage Certification Program.

“Working with Intransa to provide IP storage solutions is a win for our customers. Intransa's product provides our customers with scalability, flexibility and an efficient storage system,” said Julio Montalvo, director of technology Services at OnSSI.

An Intransa IP storage system, supporting OnSSI's intelligent video surveillance system and connected to Panasonic video cameras, will be used during an ISC Education session at the ISC West event, at 1 p.m. on April 1. The session is “NI16 - From Analog to IP Video Recording Systems”, led by Steve Sufaro, group manger of strategic technical liaison at Panasonic Security System Group. Bud Broomhead, CEO of Intransa, will be a guest speaker at the session.

“As Milestone's customers video-enable their businesses, they expect more and more from video surveillance systems, ”said Eric Fullerton, chief sales & marketing officer, Milestone Systems. “Intransa's work with the video surveillance industry is pace-setting, and they have proven that they are a storage company that knows this market.”

Intransa is sharing space with Milestone in the IPV Magazine-hosted booth (#40000) at ISC West this week, along with Axis Communications. Intransa's shared, scalable IP storage is the foundation the Axis cameras and Milestone video management software records to in the demonstration of interactive IP. The company will also have an Intransa IP storage system integrated with their software in their main booth, #4075. Earlier this year, Intransa was also a participant and exhibitor at the Milestone Integration Platform Symposium in Puerto Rico.

“Incorporating storage is key to a successful video surveillance installation,” stated David Marra, chief technology officer for VideoNEXT. “Intransa's Security Grade IP Video Storage certification and integration program leads the way with ease of product integration. This assurance allows VideoNEXT to properly align storage with our customers' needs in a solution that scales for future requirements.”

“SAM IP Video and Intransa are enabling customers to cost-effectively implement IP storage seamlessly into their existing video surveillance,” said Joe Hannawa, director of business development, SAM IP Video. “Together, we possess the capabilities to fulfill our customer's requirements for video surveillance technology that can cost-effectively scale as they grow.”

Situation management vendors also see the value. "Leveraging Intransa's scalable IP storage with ORSUS Situator end users can optimize the use of their stored video data in the context of the situations they encounter," said Omer Tishler, director of product management at ORSUS.

“As customer demand for increased capacity and performance for video surveillance solutions continues to rise, Sanbolic is bringing the most advanced IP storage solutions available to the market today,” said Momchil Michailov, CEO, Sanbolic. “Intransa's innovative IP solution and storage is ideal for providing our customers with the most robust and extensive IP storage products available.”

“As a Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) company we regularly face the challenges of interoperability and management of a variety of sensors, video equipment, and access control systems. A critical piece underlying the needs of all these systems is a flexible storage system like Intransa's that can handle high volumes of data in real time,” added Dave Fowler, vice president of marketing and engineering of VidSys, Inc.
