Doubled storage capacity improves network video recorders


IndigoVision has added 2TB disks to its NVR-AS 3000 range of ‘Plug & Go’ Linux Network Video Recorders. This doubles storage capacity without increasing physical footprint, power consumption or associated environmental control equipment.

Resilience, reliability and low-maintenance are the key to the NVR-AS 3000’s ‘Plug & Go’ capability. They support fully redundant power supplies and fully redundant Gigabit Ethernet connections as well as options for RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 5. Linux means no upgrades/patches as required with Windows storage and its built-in firewall makes it secure. Extremely low power consumption and heat dissipation enable units to be rack- or desk-mounted, and IndigoVision’s distributed architecture means that NVRs can be located at any point on the network. Units can be placed near clusters of cameras in order to reduce bandwidth across the network.

Using ‘Control Center,’ IndigoVision’s Video Management Software, advanced redundancy strategies can be easily implemented. Backup NVRs can continuously record the same video in parallel to primary NVRs (mirroring) or automatically takeover recording if a primary NVR fails.

NVRs record full framerate video and audio from 64 cameras and playback 20 streams simultaneously.
