video surveillance

Organizations in many industries use video surveillance to improve safety and security, protect business assets, meet legal requirements, and much more. To meet these demands, organizations are installing additional high definition cameras and retaining video for longer periods. Higher camera resolutions coupled with faster frame rates and expanding retention requirements place increasing pressure on both storage budgets and administrators.


Resolution and the number of required cameras increases each year, but so do retention requirements due to legal and corporate compliance mandates. The cost of long term video storage is prohibitive. This forces compromises: reduced retention, lower resolution, single copy of critical video. Spectra’s Video Surveillance Archive Solutions lower costs and simplify the workflow to remove compromises from your system.

Verde provides affordable, scalable, network attached video storage. Easily retain IP video and seamlessly expand up to 3.4PB. To ensure your IP video is protected and accessible, Verde’s high integrity, enterprise SAS drives provide the highest levels of data assurance. Providing a balance between accessibility and cost, Verde meets the demands of any size video surveillance environment.

Disaster Recovery
Creating a disaster recovery copy either locally, or remote has never been easier. Spectra’s Verde with NFI (network file interface) automatically creates a second copy of video on digital tape to provide protection from natural disaster, accidental deletion, theft, and more. Verde with NFI provides you with peace of mind that your critical video will be there when you need it.
