We just announced that Vegas Valley Locking Systems is using the DNF Security Seahawk IP video storage system to help the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department monitor its two police substations. Scalability, low total cost of ownership, and ease of use were key factors in Vegas Valley’s decision
Vegas Valley felt the Seahawk’s external expansion support of up to 128TB, made it perfect for the future expansion needs of the police department. In addition, its open platform architecture was just right for connecting to the police department’s network, and supporting third party appliances such as its Arecont IP cameras, and Exacq video management software.
The Seahawk is designed to enhance performance without compromising retention, resolution, or functionality. High performance features include redundant power supply and 5 bonded Gigabit iSCSI connections. Furthermore, the Seahawk IP storage migrates video data from storage that is directly attached to the video server to storage that is on the network, making it easy to decouple incoming video streams from archived video. Advanced alerts and system notifications featured on the Seahawk help the department check the system’s status. To learn more about the Seahawk, check out this case study.
