Demand for digitally based surveillance systems is increasing at an unprecedented rate. Whether the monitoring system application is required to observe traffic levels, protect essential company assets or supply a better environment for individuals, they all have one thing in common, the information must be sensibly and securely archived for future recommendation.


Video surveillance applications place great demands on storage, especially long-term archival storage. With multi-camera installations and high-definition digital recording systems in use, users are employing high-resolution, high-frame rate, quality footage to protect their assets. Retention periods are increasing up to multiple years which exceeds the capabilities of VHS tape and single hard disk drives to store and quickly retrieve archived footage on demand.


Magnetic tape is ecologically delicate, and highly-risky, while hard drives need a backup component to assure an appropriate archive solution. The optical library storage solution is a focused archive which stores several video streams and make sure that customers have continuous, random easy access to current and archived video footage. Built upon one of the most efficient storage systems ever produced , optical storage space element cabinet life is graded for up to 50 years of constant utilize , and negates the require to backup files to another medium .


The latest generation of Digital Monitoring solutions are IP-based (Net-Attached) based modern technology which provide video-on-requirement and complicated high capability storage solutions. IP-based solutions include a wide choice of cameras, having access to control devices, and detectors for a type of applications and environments, and supervise the system with state-of-the-art software for instinctive operation. The outcome is a state-of-the-art solution that applies standard LAN and Internet Protocols (IP) to meet emerging requirements for “shared-resource” security. Whether installing a completely new IP-based video surveillance system , or modernizing an existent Analog CCTV system to monetize on many of the IP benefits , Storage Quest’s products provides modular structure that will yield a highly effective optical solution for Digital Surveillance Archiving
