Hanwha Techwin (formerly Samsung Techwin), the manufacturer of video surveillance solutions, is introducing a low power, high capacity storage solution in partnership with Veracity, the IP transmission and surveillance storage specialist.
The combined solution, encompassing the latest generation of Hanwha Techwin’s HD cameras, SSM video management software and COLDSTORE storage offers “the most efficient direct to disk system available” and doesn’t require any NVRs.
The open platform capability of the WiseNetIII camera range is used to enable recording from the IP camera direct to the COLDSTORE disk array. Further, the use of LINKLOCK tamper-proof Ethernet-over-Coax technology, which is exclusively available from Hanwha Techwin, provides a “total barrier” to all unauthorised network access by fully blocking external IP connections to any cable or equipment that has either been tampered with or disconnected.
“The partnerships we have established with specialist technology providers such as Veracity are a key component of our ongoing major investment in R&D,” said Cheol Kyo Kim, president and CEO of the Hanwha Techwin Co Limited. “They’re a clear demonstration of our commitment to offer market leadership and provide end users with a total security solution.”
Kim continued: “When supported by COLDSTORE, our cameras and sophisticated, professional-level SSM VMS deliver a truly impressive and unique architecture known as TRINITY. It’s an excellent example of how, by working in harmony with our technology partners, Hanwha Techwin has become a one-stop shop for video surveillance solutions.”
Hanwha Techwin’s leader added: “This global marketing partnership will enable us to jointly raise awareness of a low power, high performance solution which gives installers and systems integrators a competitive edge. It also offers end users a highly cost-effective and complete video surveillance system that takes full advantage of our open platform HD camera technology and minimises total cost of ownership.”
The global marketing partnership was formalised at a signing ceremony held at Veracity’s UK head offices in Prestwick, Scotland on Wednesday 6 April.
Worldwide open platform opportunities
The solution takes advantage of the processing power of Hanwha Techwin’s WiseNetIII open platform cameras, which enables them to simultaneously run multiple specialist video analytics applications as well as Veracity’s TRINITY™ ‘direct-to-disk’ recording solution.
The solution provides end users with a robust and scalable system which doesn’t require a server or network recording device. Despite its simplified architecture, it’s able to support audio and metadata as well as video, while also offering innovative features such as camera-level fail-over, resilience to network interruptions and optional fully-redundant recording.
“I’m delighted that Hanwha Techwin has chosen to work closely with us to promote worldwide innovative video surveillance solutions that capitalise on groundbreaking technology,” said Alastair McLeod, Veracity’s Group CEO. “TRINITY delivers what we believe is the most power-efficient, reliable and complete surveillance recording solution available today.”
McLeod concluded: “We expect there to be increasing worldwide opportunities for Hanwha Techwin video surveillance solutions and products such as LINKLOCK and TRINITY to be specified for the same application. This has already happened with a number of large projects jointly won or in the pipeline across a wide range of market sectors, including city surveillance, housing, youth hostels, hospitals and petrol stations.”
