James Ritchie, Veracity’s EMEA BDM, will give a presentation entitled ‘Critical differences between IT Data and Video Data’ at ISNR Innovation Podium
TRINITY system architecture records IP video directly from camera to COLDSTORE surveillance storage system

Veracity, a leading provider of innovative, intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display, will be promoting the unique benefits of TRINITY™ and its simplified system architecture which records IP video directly from camera to COLDSTORE™, a surveillance storage system, uniquely and specifically designed for video surveillance.

The demonstration on booth #5121 in the North American Pavilion at ISNR 2016 at The Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, 15-17 March 2016 will showcase an increasing number of vendors that allow third-party software applications to be run inside their IP cameras. Examples include models from Samsung Techwin, Axis Communications, Hikvision, AMG Panogenics, ISD, and UDP with many other manufacturers rapidly following suit.

Ideal for unmonitored or remote access systems

These “open platform” cameras are generally aimed at supporting video analytics applications but are, with the right software, capable of much more. Veracity has developed dedicated software for such cameras which writes video, audio and meta-data directly to a hard disk array. This “direct-to-disk” concept completely removes the need for NVR servers resulting in substantial savings on server hardware and NVR software licences whilst simultaneously reducing system complexity and increasing system resilience.

“The front-end client system can be anything from a simple PC playback system to a full-blown, broadly-integrated PSIM operator workstation” says James Ritchie, EMEA Business Development Manager of Veracity. “We call this simple system architecture TRINITY™, and it’s an ideal solution for unmonitored or remote access systems. The storing of this video data is uniquely managed by COLDSTORE™, solving one of the great misconceptions that IT storage solutions are equally suitable for IP Video storage – they’re critically different, and I’ll be explaining how this should be taken into consideration when choosing a CCTV storage solution in my presentation “Critical differences between IT Data and Video Data” at the ISNR Innovation Podium, 2.30pm on the 16th March.”

Advanced camera code and surveillance storage

TRINITY™ is made possible by the combination of Veracity’s advanced camera code and the COLDSTORE™ surveillance storage system, uniquely and specifically designed for video surveillance. The lifetime cost of system ownership is further reduced, thanks to the increased disk reliability of COLDSTORE™ by a factor of 20, and its very low power consumption at 0.5W per TB.

TRINITY™ recordings can be played back by Veracity’s own VIEWPOINT™ Player utility or, more significantly, by any third-party PSIM or VMS front-end system which incorporates the simple TRINITY™ Media SDK. Example PSIMs which are integrated with TRINITY™ include ISM, Meyertech, Visual Management Systems, i-Comply and Synectics.

The result is a simplified, serverless, robust, highly scalable and very cost-effective video management system with innovative features such as camera-level fail-over, optional dual-stream or redundant recording, resilience to network interruptions via internal camera recording, and all the existing benefits of the highly successful and award-winning COLDSTORE™ surveillance storage system.
