Toshiba Debuts New Fault Tolerant DVRs

New DVRs tout reliability, available in a number of channel configurations


Toshiba Security & Network Video debuted its new EVR ("Extreme Video Recorder") Series of DVRs boasting one of the the industry's most fault tolerant designs with redundant, field replaceable dual power supplies, maximum air flow dynamics, internal RAID 5 compatibility and field-upgradeable hard drives.

"As the security industry migrates towards digital video surveillance, DVR reliability has become an overriding concern for network administrators," said Sergio Collazo, National Sales & Marketing Manager, Toshiba Security & Network Video. "Our EVR Series recorders put these concerns to rest with their unequaled fault tolerant engineering, advanced feature package and the very latest in networking technologies."
