3VR, the video intelligence company, recently announced that its video management software, VisionPoint™ VMS, is now integrated with Quantum’s portfolio of data storage solutions. This integration enables customers with robust video storage needs to run 3VR’s enterprise-level VMS on the data storage tier that best fits their needs, including on-premise and cloud-based options to achieve the ideal balance of performance, capacity and cost. VisionPoint VMS integration with StorNext “The ability to give users a VMS product that can run on the Quantum scale-out storage platform of their choice expands our customer base and further establishes 3VR’s VMS as an open solution,” said Jeff Karnes, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Operations for 3VR. “In addition, our sales strategy enables both 3VR’s and Quantum’s channel partners to sell the complete end-to-end solution and actively share in sales leads.” VisionPoint VMS’ integration with StorNext™ provides a single file system which enables video data to automatically move between 3VR’s VMS and the Quantum storage solution. Additionally, StorNext migrates the data to the most appropriate tier of storage based on performance attributes and retention policies defined by VisionPoint VMS. Regardless of whether the video is stored on premise or off-site – including the cloud – it is instantly and seamlessly searchable using 3VR’s user interface. Eliminates third-party interface VisionPoint VMS combines video analytics, recording, case management and search functionalities into a single interface, eliminating the need for third-party interfaces common with other VMS configurations. In addition to traditional thumbnail and timeline searches, VisionPoint VMS is uniquely developed to search within video content using key criteria such as colours, license plate numbers, shapes, sizes, ages and genders. This enables playback from precise places of interest without spending valuable time looking for video using fast-forward and rewind. “VisionPoint VMS’ strength in searching archived video feeds perfectly complements Quantum’s tiered storage architecture, particularly with our performance advantages and our heritage of managing video based data,” said Wayne Arvidson, Vice President, Video Surveillance Solutions, Quantum. “The combination delivers total capacity more affordably and offers an efficient approach to storing and accessing video archived in datacentres or in the cloud, and we’re engaged in a number of major projects utilising this solution.”
3VR has expanded sales channel with four new manufacturer’s representative firms 3VR, the video intelligence company, recently announced that the company has enhanced its lineup of video surveillance appliances with a new network video recorder (NVR) for ATMs and has expanded its sales channel through agreements with four manufacturers’ representative firms. “3VR is maintaining its momentum from 2014 by continuing to design products for high-growth markets and by expanding our sales channels,” said Jeff Karnes, senior vice president of marketing and operations. “We are looking forward to another successful ISC West and another year of record growth as we increase our presence in the loss prevention, business intelligence and VMS markets.” NVR for ATM installations: The new 2100-Series NVR for ATM installations is a powerful video appliance that helps financial institutions investigate and analyse common ATM crimes like burglary or skimming.

Its enterprise-class hard drive and low power consumption make it a reliable video recording solution that can be used as part of a large enterprise system or as a standalone ATM NVR.
