3VR Delivers More Powerful SmartRecorder to Support Higher Camera Counts, Increased Video Analytics, Improved Storage and Enterprise Video Search

SmartRecorder ServerClass 100 Now Supports Up to 64 IP and 32 Megapixel Cameras

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) - 3VR Security, Inc., the global leader in Intelligent Surveillance and Search, announced today that the 3VR SmartRecorder ServerClass 100 now supports up to 64 IP cameras or 32 megapixel cameras of searchable video on a single appliance, making it the industry's most powerful searchable video recorder. With greater capacity to support 3VR SmartAnalytics and more cameras than any other SmartRecorder, the ServerClass 100 is the company's most powerful and scalable solution to date, designed to meet the needs of any large-scale surveillance implementation.

The ServerClass supports not only higher camera counts, but also up to 20 terabytes of storage, which when combined with 3VR SmartStorage technology, offers customers 15 times more efficient storage than typical DVRs. The ServerClass 100 easily scales to meet the needs of cities, transportation and infrastructure security, as well as other large scale deployments in 3VR's core markets like retail, financial services, hospitality and campus safety.

"Traditional video management systems often require difficult and costly integration between the separate hardware, software and network resources, but 3VR seamlessly integrates intelligent video software and hardware on a single appliance," said Steve Russell, founder and chairman, 3VR. "3VR's Intelligent VMS appliance enables integrators to easily and cost effectively meet the needs of more demanding customers, like retailers, critical infrastructure and cities. We're taking away the cost and complexity without sacrificing power."

Search, Scale and Storage: All from 3VR

Built on 3VR's best-in-class intelligent surveillance and search technology, the ServerClass 100 offers an open platform, enabling users to easily integrate with third-party business systems like access control, transaction and point-of-sale (POS) systems. It also supports the entire suite of 3VR SmartAnalytics, including facial recognition and license plate recognition (LPR), to provide a meaningful way to structure and search stored video. Further, 3VR's video search capabilities bring new levels of efficiency to end users and enable them to search stored video in a 'Google-like' manner and more than double the speed of investigations.

3VR SmartStorage also offers video analysis capabilities to intelligently isolate and store critical images from live footage. This enables users to relate captured images to specific triggers in the video or external systems, such as transactions, faces, license plate events and motion, allowing customers to store surveillance up to 15 times more efficiently than industry standard DVRs and ensuring they never lose the ability to search for critical images. 

"We've deployed the 3VR SmartRecorder ServerClass within cities in Northern California, as well as a school district in the community, and the results have been very positive," said Brian Van Norman, director of sales, Surveillance Solutions Integration. "The customer was able to cost-effectively deploy a solution to unify several locations on a single NVR, and the 3VR ServerClass has been running flawlessly for them. 3VR's video management appliance offers the power and versatility of a much more expensive VMS solution with the simplicity of a turnkey DVR. The ease of use and cost-effective price point enable a larger customer to get more value and quicker return on investment out of their security system."

In addition to the ServerClass, 3VR's family of intelligent video management products includes the 3VR SmartRecorder S-Series, a compact, economical and low-bandwidth video system, and the 3VR SmartRecorder P-Series, 3VR's flexible, powerful and supportable video management appliance for distributed enterprises. All built on 3VR's unique intelligent surveillance and search platform, 3VR solutions feature video analytic, data integration and search capabilities, advanced motion and facial surveillance, and state-of-the-art central management options.
