QNAP Security released firmware version 3.5.1 for its VioStor NVR lineup. The new firmware enables VioStor Pro series products and VS-2008L/2004L to support 3TB SATA hard drives and PSIA compliant IP cameras of renowned brands LG and Sharp. The newly supported 3TB hard drives include Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 (HUA723030ALA640) and Deskstar 7K3000 (HDS723030ALA640), and Seagate Barracuda XT (ST33000651AS). Enterprise and SMB customers that need a large capacity NVR solution to archive long time recording assets can now benefit from the new firmware release.
PSIA is a globally recognised standard that becomes more common with time. "With the PSIA support in firmware V3.5.1 release, users immediately have at least 150 new network devices to choose from," commented Andrew Yu, product manager of QNAP Security. QNAP VioStor NVR lineup has supported over 1,100 camera models of 47 different brands to date. The new PSIA-compliant IP cameras addition will further provide system integrators with flexibility when planning a proper security setup for their customers.
The VioStor NVR offers rich features such as 128-channel monitoring from multiple NVR servers without additional PC software, Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) for fast video retrieval, generic IP camera integration by JPEG CGI command, digital watermarking, advanced event management, email and SMS alerts, online RAID capacity expansion, and online RAID level migration. In order to make it more convenient for operators to easily manage over hundreds of IP cameras, VioStor's E-map feature allows users to pinpoint the position of each IP camera on a multi-layered digital map. E-map also provides instant notification of alerts and provides the user immediate access to the corresponding live view simply by clicking the desired camera icon.
