|Veracity's “direct-to-disk” concept completely removes the need for NVR servers
Veracity, provider of innovative, intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display, will be demonstrating 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.
Open platform cameras
The demonstration on stand D850 at IFSEC at ExCel, London 21st-23rd June 2016 will showcase an increasing number of vendors that allow third-party software applications to be run inside their IP cameras. Demonstrations will include models from Hanwha Techwin and Axis Communications. 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 Alastair McLeod, Group CEO of Veracity. “We call this simple system architecture TRINITY™, and it’s an ideal solution for unmonitored or remote access systems, yet it can scale up very easily for much larger systems.”

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 x20 increased disk reliability of COLDSTORE™, 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.
Simplified video management system
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’s storage products will also be demonstrated at the Hanwha Techwin stand G800. Veracity recently won Hanwha Techwin America’s Integration Partner of the Year 2015.
