LenovoEMC Announces New Line of High Performance NVRs
LenovoEMC Limited today announced a new line of high performance network video recorders (NVRs) with expanded video surveillance capabilities that deliver superior performance in capturing, sharing and storing digital video surveillance files. The new LenovoEMC NVRs are ideal for businesses with an existing network-storage-based video surveillance network as well as those participating in the ongoing industry upgrade from analog-based surveillance systems.
The new LenovoEMC NVRs are the first in the industry to feature Milestone Arcus, the newest video management software (VMS) from Milestone, a solution provider of open platform, IP, video management software.
“Customers that need dependable, affordable video surveillance will benefit from the integration of the new Milestone Arcus VMS platform with award-winning LenovoEMC network storage,” said Eric Arcese, president and general manager, LenovoEMC Ltd. “The result is a dedicated digital video recorder appliance with superior reliability, image quality, ease-of-installation and affordability, as well as the versatility to handle an organization’s network storage needs.”
The new LenovoEMC NVR product family includes three models: the double-drive LenovoEMC px2-300d NVR with Milestone Arcus that includes 4TB of storage and 4 camera licenses and two versions of the new four-drive LenovoEMC px4-300d NVR with Milestone Arcus, one with 4TB and 8 camera licenses and one with 8TB and 16 camera licenses. Each model also comes with a one-year software update plan, enabling users to receive the latest feature updates and releases from Milestone.
LenovoEMC will unveil its new line of NVR products with Milestone Arcus at the ISC West security tradeshow this week in Las Vegas (April 10-12). The new LenovoEMC NVR models can be seen at the Milestone Systems booth #20053.
Milestone Arcus is an embedded video surveillance platform for low-complexity, affordable security installations. A VMS solution that runs on Linux, Mac OSX and Windows-related operating systems, Milestone Arcus offers a streamlined, video management tool that is simple and easy-to-install for users of LenovoEMC’s new line of NVRs.
Providing simple, ‘power-on’ installation that auto-detects cameras on the network and speeds their configuration in the system, Milestone Arcus is perfect for customers who want to move from analog cameras to IP network technology. Milestone Arcus features an intuitive web client interface for viewing live or recorded video, and searching and exporting evidence.
“We are pleased to have LenovoEMC utilize our new Milestone Arcus software with their latest integrated network storage solution,” said Lars Nordenlund, vice president of incubation & ventures at Milestone Systems. “IP video surveillance deployment couldn’t be easier - just plug in and operate! The Web-client interface is user-friendly, and future innovations will be available with our ongoing upgrades.”
