New Camera Management Servers on Display in Real-World Application Environment at ISC West
LAS VEGAS/ISC West - April 2, 2008 - DNF Security, a Dynamic Network Factory (DNF) business unit and provider of mission-critical IP surveillance solutions, today at ISC West unveiled its Falcon series of entry-level and mid-range integrated camera management servers for organizations in need of high-performance, image/video management and RAID-protected storage in an all-in-one system. Eleven new models are now available, including the Falcon 2400 system, which is on display in booth #1058 in a real-world application environment that gives integrators and administrators a first-hand view of the camera management and storage integration capabilities of DNF Security.
With capacities ranging from 2TB to 40TB, the Falcon series delivers on DNF Security's commitment to provide superior scalability and smaller form factors than traditional analog digital video recorder (DVR) and network video recorder (NVR) alternatives. All of the Falcon models feature redundant, hot-swap components and comprehensive RAID protection. Each server is also designed to create near- and long-term video archives for periods ranging from one day to half a year. In addition, they support in excess of 1900 sustained frames per second -- far exceeding standard management software.
According to Robert Madej, product manager for DNF Security, the Falcon series of servers is designed from the ground up to meet the demanding requirements of surveillance applications, while freeing customers from the proprietary constraints of conventional analog CCTV and DVR systems.
"When talking to numerous management software vendors and system integrators, we realized they had trouble determining which systems and servers were best suited to their environments," said Madej. "Although servers and storage have standard benchmarking tools, the results don't match well with surveillance applications, so our engineering team developed the CAVS™ index, a suite of tests and tools to offer guidance in real-world application performance."
Each Falcon series system has been graded with DNF's Continuous Aggregated Video Stream (CAVS™) index to measure performance in rigorous surveillance environments, ensuring that each appliance meets and exceeds customer requirements. Entry-level systems support a CAVS rating of 8 while larger systems are rated at 110. Each appliance is designed to maximize uptime through built-in high availability features including split video recording, Video-lok™ technology, RAID, clustering, load balancing and more. In addition, DNF offers patented storage virtualization technology to reduce data bottlenecks for increased efficiency.
Like all DNF Security systems, the Falcon servers also offer:
* Support for environments of four or more cameras
* Scalability to 40 terabytes
* Best-in-class components for maximum IP and digital video performance
* High-definition disk drive certification testing for lower hard drive failure rates
Available in both tower and rack-mount configurations with the highest performing models featuring two Quad-Core Xeon™ processors and up to 4GB of internal memory, the DNF Security Falcon series is now available through the company's nationwide reseller network. Suggested list prices start at $2,271 for an entry-level system with up to 2TB of storage.
