BCDVideo announced recently that its storage solutions have been optimized for IP Video design by HP. As a global HP OEM partner, BCDVideo designs and builds project-based recording servers exclusively on the HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) platform.

BCDVideo’s OEM relationship with HP provides BCDVideo access to both engineering and product development specialists within HP, as well as early products for testing. These HP OEM offerings include lifecycle management, controlled firmware updates, customization and branding that help BCDVideo focus on its solutions and bring its products to market efficiently, the company said. In addition to building from a base of world-class products, BCDVideo has access to pre-released products for testing, it said.

“Over the past five years, BCDVideo developed a go-to-market solution by working working closely with the HP server and engineering teams. HP’s ability to share ideas and technologies has been instrumental in our attaining this special status on our IP Video servers,” said Tom Larson, BCDVideo’s director of sales and engineering. “This relationship is significant as it gives our integrator customers an edge in knowing that our builds are proven for enterprise video recording.”

BCDVideo recently released its SMART Technologies solutions, which allow integrators full project control from anywhere in the world; as well as its SuperNova series of Direct Access Storage arrays built on a 6G SAS technology backplane for up to one petabyte of storage in 22U of rack space.
