Intransa announces widespread participation in IP storage certification program

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

Intransa is also a sponsor of the Global Security Integration (GSI) 2010 events for security integrators and consultants. All products demonstrated at GSO and GSI events are integrated with Intransa storage, which is also the provider of the host lab for the ongoing event programs.

“Leading the industry and delivering proven technology is what we're all about,” stated Mr. Gregory Piferi, business development liaison at Condortech Services, Inc. “We are pleased to be working with Intransa, the leading IP storage vendor in the video surveillance market.” Condortech was early to market with Intransa IP storage, demonstrating it at the Force Protection Equipment Demonstration VI (FPED VI) event in August of 2007.

As additional benefits of the StorAlliance program and the Security-Grade IP Video Storage certification process, Intransa and its StorAlliance partners have uncovered numerous benefits and opportunities for customers and security integrators to leverage with IP solutions.

Those outside North America also agree in the value of the integration and certification program.

“As the video surveillance industry advances, integrated solutions bring new capabilities as well as new challenges,” said Dario Diaz, director commercial operations, Bitelco, from the company's headquarters in Chile. “Intransa's certification of video management systems and software alleviates the risks of integration and, by certifying the integration of IP storage; it allows Bitelco to optimize the final video surveillance solution for our customers.” The company became an Intransa StorPartner in September of 2007, offering its IP storage throughout South America.

“Zycko provides its customers with fully integrated video surveillance applications. This is no small task” said David Galton-Fenzi, group sales director, Zycko Limited, a well known value added distributor based in the UK who represents Intransa products in Europe. “Intransa has taken the difficulty out of the integration process with their Security-Grade IP Certification Program. The broad acceptance of Intransa's program by video management systems providers, video analytic providers, framework providers and camera suppliers allows Zycko to integrate and deliver complete solutions with a very high degree of confidence.”

“Macnica Networks supports our IT and video storage customers in Japan using Intransa 1GbE and 10GbE IP storage," said Masanori Murakami, manager, sales and marketing at Macnica Networks Corporation in Yokohama, Japan. “It greatly helps us in designing and implementing solutions when we know that all of the vendors products have been tested together, and Intransa's program does just that. Video storage has a unique workload, very different from standard IT requirements, and thus the Security-Grade IP Storage Certification Program from Intransa is vital to ensure performance and proper integration.”
