Micron Technology Inc. has announced a full portfolio of edge storage solutions for video surveillance that will enable new deployment models and reduce total cost of ownership for both commercial and enterprise use cases. The new industrial-grade microSD products will be available in 2018 and will leverage Micron’s 3D NAND technology, providing up to 256GB of ultra-high-density storage.

 

Micron’s new solutions give system designers unprecedented freedom in the design of large distributed video surveillance systems. This architectural approach enables large amounts of video to be stored at the network edge, with a unique level of reliability for 24x7 video recording.

 

In addition, Micron today announced collaborations with the Shenzhen Security and Protection Industry Association (SSPIA) and China channel partner, Jinyu Global, to speed deployment of the new Micron-based solutions regionally.

 

“The video surveillance industry is unique as its customers demand consistent recording performance over years of use,” said Jeff Bader, vice president of the Embedded Business Unit at Micron. “Edge storage improves the economics of this high-growth market and delivers value for camera OEMs, system integrators and end customers by improving video quality and increasing network reliability. Our collaborations with Jinyu and with the industry association in Shenzhen will help ensure that Micron is aligned with industry standards while expanding its storage offerings and presence in China and beyond.” 

 

Edge video — defined by the ability to store data or video content within a camera versus in a centralized recording facility across the network — is the future of IP video surveillance applications. By leveraging Micron’s highly reliable local microSD card storage, system integrators can optimize designs that factor in IP network load and capacity availability, recording redundancy and mobile access. Additionally, IHS Markit, a global business information provider, forecasts that the global market for video surveillance equipment will be worth $19.7 billion in 2020.  

“Micron truly understands surveillance use cases, and launching edge storage solutions on advanced flash memory technology will change the way video is captured and stored in future surveillance deployments,” said Michael Yang, vice president for SSPIA.  “We view our strategic technical collaboration with Micron as a way to educate and promote edge storage, and to better meet China’s future needs in video surveillance.”
