LenovoEMC, the storage player behind the Iomega brand, is betting that it can expand its market via video surveillance. The company is launching a series of network video recorders to help business monitor premises.
According to LenovoEMC, its network video recorders (NVRs) are designed for security installations with less than 20 Internet Protocol cameras. The NVRs will be available in May and largely targeted at small and midsized businesses.
With the move, LenovoEMC is hoping to capture additional sales as companies upgrade from analog systems. The systems will include Milestone Arcus, a video management software platform. Milestone makes open IP video management software.
LenovoEMC's NVRs, all powered by Milestone Arcus, include three models:
- A double-drive px2-300d with 4TB of storage and four camera licenses.
- A four-drive px4-300d with 4TB and eight camera licenses.
- And a four-drive px4-300d with 8TB and 16 camera license.
Models include a one-year software update plan for Milestone updates and start at $1,100. LenovoEMC said the NVRs are designed for automated setup and configuration, motion detection, mobile live viewing, alerts and playback and evidence export.
