BCD Video Server


BCDVideo’s BCD180V Series, built upon the Hewlett-Packard family of ProLiant servers, are designed specifically for video surveillance storage applications that require high availability and redundancy. These enterprise-grade series of servers feature 14 drive bays, allowing for up to 36TB 6G SAS video storage, all in a 2U chassis. Hot-pluggable 6G SAS drives offer twice the bandwidth over traditional SATA drives. This increased bandwidth allows for more cameras at higher resolutions per server, therefore reducing overall server costs. These dual-port 6G SAS drives feature full duplex, active channels, robust command queuing, and superior error detection over SATA drives, according to the company. 6G SAS drives, by executing two write commands, two read commands, or a read/write command simultaneously help make choppy video recordings a thing of the past. These video-optimized servers are delivered pre-loaded with both the operating system and video management software of your choice. The BCDVideo storage experts can also pre-determine the necessary storage for your project and guarantee the results. All of BCDVideo servers are globally covered by HP’s world-class on-site service and distributed worldwide exclusively through Anixter.
