"IP surveillance is undoubtedly on the rise worldwide; customers are moving away from analogue CCTV systems and are demanding better image quality, more bandwidth and systems that are easily scalable," said Daniel Lin, the sales director at Qsan. "The AegisSAN V100 series offers all this. It features hardware offload engines to handle heavy workload and offers comprehensive enterprise-grade data protection features to protect all stored data."
Owing to the digital format in which video is recorded, IP-based surveillance provides a number of advantages over that based on older CCTV technology. These advantages include:
- improved search capabilities
- higher video quality with no degradation over time
- the ability to simultaneously record live video and play back previously recorded footage
- the ability to compress video to reduce storage requirements.
The network connectivity of IP cameras enables improved remote access, ease of distribution, storage flexibility, and integration with communications systems such as email. As a result of the clear superiority of IP surveillance systems over CCTV-based solutions, the former is rapidly supplanting the latter for virtually all security applications; in the next three years, 64% of UK-based retailers plan to adopt network IP.
The available products in the AegisSAN V100 series include the AegisSAN V100-P10 with six 1GbE ports, which has has 3U 16-bay and 4U 24-bay form factor options.
