IBM Unveils New Digital Video Surveillance Service

Advanced Technology and Services Enable Convergence of Analytics and Video Data

Other current IBM DVS clients include Kohl's department stores.

The Smart Surveillance Solution is a cross-IBM solution that leverages IBM services, from consulting, design, planning and integration, along with IBM hardware and software. Integrating IBM products with video surveillance specific technologies from alliance companies establishes IBM as a true end-to-end solution provider in this hyper-growth market.

IBM's new Digital Video Surveillance service provides an integrated video surveillance solution that can include components such as cameras, digital video recorders, servers, storage systems, software and network devices. For example, IBM Digital Video Surveillance leverages industry standard platforms, such as IBM BladeCenter, System x servers, System Storage and enterprise-wide networks to help enable wider access to video, real-time video analytics and implementation of an enterprise video system. In addition, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager can automate data backup and restore functions, support a broad range of platforms and storage devices, and centralize storage management operations.

The IBM Smart Surveillance Solution is available immediately in the United States, and on a limited basis globally. It is scheduled for general global availability in Q2 2007.
