A New Model with Hot Swap HDD for Image Evaluation Outside the Network

A New Model with Hot Swap HDD for Image Evaluation Outside the NetworkGeutebruck’s new re_porter-IP/XRdB is designed as an attractive solution for situations where it is necessary or desirable to review image data outside the network.  Two 2TB hard disks are configured for RAID level 1, so they store identical data. One disk is built in, but the other sits in a sturdy hot swap mount that can be removed with the system still running. This hot swap facility enables you to evaluate the whole database separately, at another station, away from the CCTV system and the network. In fact, the GSCSpeedView-XRdB evaluation and playback station has been specially conceived for this purpose. With one hard disk removed, the re_porter-IP/XRdB continues to operate, storing all video data on its fixed disk until a new HDD is inserted, and it can automatically mirror the data onto the new HDD.

This system was developed to meet the particular needs of a video surveillance operator with remote sites, where there is no network or where the video is to be reviewed by police or other third parties who have no access rights to the operator’s network. 

If an incident is reported at a remote location monitored by the re_porter_XRdB, then the video surveillance operator informs the police or other security service provider. An officer goes to the site, taking along an empty hard disk unit. To swap the hard disks over, he presses the button on the front, waits a second or two until the flashing light goes out, then uses a special key to release the disk unit, which can then be pulled out and replaced with the empty one. When the key is turned again and the button depressed, the system automatically mirrors the recorded video onto the new disk. The officer takes the recorded disk to the reviewing station where he just inserts the disk, turns the activation key and the recorded video material can be displayed.
