SoleraTec Integrates RDX Removable Storage Into Phoenix Thunderbird For Long-Term Video Retention
Removable hard disk storage capacities in 320GB, 500GB, 750GB, 1TB, and 1.5TB RDX cartridges deliver affordable video retention while providing quick video surveillance playback.
The Phoenix Thunderbird 3100 with the Phoenix RSM software performs and extends all archiving and video management functions. This appliance handles all video migration, replication, retention, and archiving responsibilities by utilizing affordable online and removable storage resources.
The Phoenix Thunderbird 3100 captures surveillance video, creates a low-resolution companion file that is less than 10% of the original video file size, stores this companion file on the appliance’s local hard drive, and stores the unaltered –untouched–
By implementing offline storage management for their original video surveillance recordings, businesses can take full advantage of higher frame-rate and better resolution video, giving them the full value of their camera investments.
Organizations can easily rotate new RDX cartridges into the Phoenix Thunderbird appliance as they fill each cartridge to capacity and can mix and match the various RDX size cartridges –320GB, 500GB, 750GB, 1TB, and 1.5TB– as they need. Never lose video surveillance footage again.
Users can now quickly and easily find the needle in a haystack of all recorded video surveillance feeds by using Phoenix RSM’s extended metadata functionality, which allows for annotating the recorded video to perform relevant, targeted, searches at later dates.
RDX removable hard disk cartridges contain a 2.5-inch hard disk drive that offers all of the advantages of disk-to-disk storage, including high performance and a low-failure rate. The cartridges provide both forward and backward compatibility. Imation RDX removable hard disk cartridges are compatible and interchangeable with all RDX removable hard disk docks on the market. The removable hard disk media provides complete data protection and helps ensure easy-to-use, reliable, fast and portable storage to small- and medium-sized businesses.
“For years, organizations have sought ways to store their increasing volumes of video surveillance feeds for longer periods of time. RDX media is an easy to use, rugged, affordable solution for retention and fast search and retrieval of large and growing volumes of video assets. And as durable removable hard disk drives, RDX allows organizations both to backup video assets locally and store them offsite for safekeeping,”
This integration between the removable Imation RDX technology and SoleraTec’s Phoenix Thunderbird video surveillance appliance delivers overarching video surveillance asset management into an entire surveillance infrastructure at affordable, cost-efficient price points. The ease of use in video searching and playback with Phoenix RSM combined with the near-line and offline video retention of the RDX provides a viable long-term video retention solution.
“Integrating the ease-of-use of RDX removable media allows the Phoenix Thunderbird to deliver a unique solution to the growing need of retaining as much video surveillance footage as possible –at an economical price. Previously, solutions that allowed organizations to keep significant pools of video recordings were astronomical expensive, now with Phoenix Thunderbird, it’s affordable.”
