Make IP Video Storage Easier to Manage
February 1, 2008
Bosch Security Systems Inc. released Video Recording Manager (VRM) for centralized management of iSCSI recording from IP cameras and encoders within an IP-based CCTV network. Bosch’s VRM signals the arrival of the second-generation of IP network video recording technology, replacing first-generation network video recorders (NVRs). With the introduction of VRM, Bosch adds system-wide recording management for its direct-to-iSCSI RAID storage, which enables IP cameras and encoders to stream directly to disk. VRM pools all iSCSI RAIDs in a system and, after dividing the total capacity into one Gigabyte storage blocks, allocates storage on demand to IP cameras and encoders. The software acts as a “traffic cop” by helping to distribute video across the various iSCSI disk arrays on the customer’s network. The software also facilitates fast searches, as it provides a database for recordings and metadata. Bosch Security Systems Inc.
