Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Products, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, launched a new NVR recording platform empowered with Surveillix Web Services (SWS) that records locally while leveraging the benefits of cloud-based services to provide their reseller partners with increased profitability and provide end users with cutting-edge solutions that streamline operations and add value across their entire organization, the company described.

“This product has been built from the ground up with two main purposes in mind: providing end user customers with increased ease-of-use and ongoing system management and providing our reseller partners with increased profitability while creating or enhancing recurring revenue opportunities for them,” said Greg Hartzell, director of Toshiba’s surveillance division.

Adding to system flexibility is the wide variety of ONVIF-compliant network cameras that are compatible with Percept recorders. Toshiba IP cameras, as well as those from all major IP camera manufacturers, can be plugged into a broadband router where SWS will auto negotiate with servers to bring it online. In most cases, this next generation solution eliminates the need for port forwarding so that both lag and remote connection issues are greatly reduced.

Toshiba Percept E-Series recorders are designed for enterprise-class applications. Available with a maximum of 64 IP video inputs and 16 audio channels, Percept E-Series recorders locally store up to 96 TB of video. Percept M-Series recorders are for small- to mid-sized applications with a maximum of 32 channels of IP video and 34 TB of local video storage. M-Series recorders are offered with eight or 16 channel optional built-in integrated PoE+ ports with plug-and-play capability.

Both the Percept M-Series and E-Series are compatible with Toshiba’s MySurveillix service that monitors and reports on the health of the surveillance system. It has a robust range of features allowing users to quickly check the system’s functionality, set alarms and define filters to alert via SMS or email, and identify and fix any problems when they happen, not after a critical event occurs and fails to be captured.
