Veracity will show innovative transmission & storage products with 3 key partners during Intersec 2017 Veracity, a provider of innovative, intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display, reflects its significant growth in the Middle East by announcing an enlarged company stand at this year’s show in Dubai. Veracity has seen considerable growth in 2016 across not only the Middle East but also Africa, India and Sri Lanka and will be demonstrating its portfolio of innovative Transmission and Storage products with 3 key partners during Intersec, which runs from 22nd to 24th of January at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Veracity products will be showcased at the company stand (SA-H24), Mayflex (SA-D18), Norbain (North Hall, 2-C32) and also with Veracity’s storage systems marketing partner, Hanwha Techwin (S1-J26). COLDSTORE Veracity products on show include COLDSTORE, an innovative solution for video surveillance storage requiring long term retention with the highest levels of reliability. The revolutionary sequential storage system delivers much higher disk reliability, offers a 90% power saving over equivalent RAID-based systems, long life time and lower total cost of ownership, yet still provides all the storage security, system redundancy and performance required by this demanding market. Offered as a 3U high, 150TB unit that uses only 0.4W per Terabyte, COLDSTORE also forms part of the innovative TRINITY architecture which eliminates the need for Network Video Recorder (NVR) servers by allowing IP cameras to record directly to COLDSTORE. TRINITY is currently supported by cameras from Axis Communications, Hanwha Techwin, UDP, Mobotix and other leading open platform brands. Transmission solutions Also on display at Intersec will be the full range of Transmission products and tools including the expanded HIGHWIRE Powerstar Ethernet over Coax portfolio which now delivers rack-mounted multi-channel options with Gigabit uplinks and cost-effective POE power supplies, including power redundancy options. POINTSOURCE Plus and POINTSOURCE Wireless IP camera installation tool and the new TIMENET Pro NTP time server are also all new products for Intersec. “Since our entry to the market in 2014 we have seen a large increase in the number of RFQs which have come our way. The reliability and cost-benefits of COLDSTORE and TRINITY in projects which require data retention of up to 180 days is now widely recognised across multiple verticals, particularly where the end-user requires the ability to instantly remove a disk for evidential purposes,” says James Ritchie, Business Development Manager for Middle East. “Veracity’s innovative products are essential for our community of installers to help differentiate themselves and deliver high value projects to customers with a wide variety of use cases and technical considerations.”
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.
Veracity exhibited a range of innovative transmission and storage solutions at Intersec 2016 Veracity, a leading provider of innovative, intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display, reflected significant growth in the Middle East by announcing its presence on 5 stands at this year’s show in Dubai. Veracity appointed Systematrix as their Manufacturer’s Representative in the region in early 2015 and with the experience of the owner, Chetan Sathaye, and his team of four security sales professionals has seen significant growth across not only the Middle East, but also Africa and India. Transmission and storage products on display Veracity demonstrated its portfolio of innovative Transmission and Storage products with 5 key partners during Intersec which ran from 17th to 19th of January at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
