June 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

LenovoEMC (previously Iomega) announced a new line of high performance network video recorders (NVRs) with expanded video surveillance capabilities. The new Lenovo EMC NVRs are aimed at businesses with an existing network storage-based video surveillance network as well as those participating in the ongoing industry upgrade from analogue-based surveillance systems.

The new Lenovo EMC NVRs are the first in the industry to feature Milestone Arcus, the newest video management software (VMS) from Milestone.

“Customers that need dependable, affordable video surveillance will benefit from the integration of the new Milestone Arcus VMS platform with Lenovo EMC network storage,” said Eric Arcese, president and general manager, LenovoEMC. “The result is a dedicated digital video recorder appliance with superior reliability, image quality, ease-of-installation and affordability, as well as the versatility to handle an organisation’s network storage needs.”

The new Lenovo EMC NVR product family includes three models: the double-drive Lenovo EMC px2-300d NVR with Milestone Arcus, which includes 4 TB of storage and four camera licences; and two versions of the new four-drive Lenovo EMC px4-300d NVR with Milestone Arcus, one with 4 TB and eight camera licences and one with 8 TB and 16 camera licences. Each model also comes with a one-year software update plan, enabling users to receive the latest feature updates and releases from Milestone.
