In recent years, video surveillance has shifted from analogue to digital data archiving; which recording streams via digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR) to external storages with RAID features data protection.
Furthermore, critical record would request infrastructure like storage area network (SAN) to achieve performance, scalability and reliability. Arena offers a complete range of DAS/SAN solutions to meet the critical requirement of modern video surveillance application; various features are tailored for it and various configurations can fulfill different demand.
CCTV is being deployed in a variety of applications and business requirements. With the advent of multi-camera HD systems becoming available the amount of data these megapixel cameras generate daily is increasingly becoming a concern for many CCTV companies.
