StorMagic ARQvault Video Surveillance solutions lets you capture video anywhere, store it forever, find it fast, and reduce storage costs by at least 50% versus other solutions. ARQvault Video Surveillance solutions consists of ARQvault, the first Active Intelligent Repository, and either the ARQvault VMS or VMS Connectors module.
- ARQvault VMS module provides camera configuration, live viewing, video wall, specific third-party analytics integration, such as license plate and facial recognition, and more for a complete, full-featured video surveillance solution.
- ARQvault VMS Connectors module is for customers that already have a front-end VMS system, such as those from Milestone, Exacq, and Qognify. ARQvault VMS Connectors integrates with these systems and provides all the management, policies, active automated tiering, and intelligent search capabilities, along with dramatically lower storage costs, provided by ARQvault
The ARQvault Video Surveillance solution with VMS module (ARQvault VMS) supports thousands of cameras and includes full-featured live viewing and video wall and is based on ARQvault:
- ARQvault is a collection of vaults creating a federated repository.
ARQvault software combines different and distributed storage resources into an integrated system shared across the network. Vaults consist of a server, storage, and ARQvault software.
- ARQvault is active.
Secondary storage, such as LTO tape libraries and Sony optical systems, cloud storage, and even offline storage are all an active part of the repository. ARQvault knows where all the video is and can actively seek, find, and retrieve any video in real time.
- ARQvault is intelligent.
ARQvault uses policies to automatically move video to different storage tiers and creates low-resolution proxies of high-resolution video for fast retrieval. The use of metadata and customizable fields and integration with analytics packages provides for rich data analysis and discovery of new relationships and business assets.
Capture video from anywhere and expand easily when needed.
|Use any digital asset from any source||Easily ingest video, images, audio, and other files and data, such as .pdf, .doc, .xls, .txt and more.|
|No vendor lock-in||Runs on x86 or ARM servers and works with any type of storage: internal disk, flash, NAS, SAN, optical, tape, and cloud.|
|Provides complete architectural flexibility||Any site can have one or more vaults. Easy to scale – add additional ingest points to one to thousands of sites in any location at any time.|
|LIVE VIEW AND VIDEO WALL.
Full featured, massively scalable video wall included with ARQvault VMS.
|Highly customizable||Supports thousands of monitors with multiple layouts.|
|Easy to use||Intuitive drag and drop user interface.|
|Complete control||Numerous settings for camera control, layout configuration, creating and utilizing patrols, camera pooling, and multi-camera video playback.|
|Action oriented||Screen pops and actions generated from programmable and analytics-based alerts and
Store forever (if you want to) with secure, easy to manage, automated tiering. Gain complete control over video lifecycle management and dramatically lower storage costs.
|Automated tiering: Optimize performance and reduce costs||Policies decide what video gets moved to lower cost storage tiers and when. Complete control over where video starts, how long it stays, and when larger files, such as high-res, move to more cost-effective tiers.|
|Three levels of access security||At the vault, storage, file levels. Integrates with Active Directory or local authentication with complete audit trail. Makes sure video is unaltered using a digital fingerprint (SHA-256) and provides chain-of-custody history.|
|Complete video lifecycle management||From birth to death. User interface offers managed flexibility in storing video. Easily export and share video: in-house, constituents, or third parties. Simplicity helps meet regulation, compliance, and legal requirements.|
Find video fast and apply powerful search and analytics capabilities with intelligent search using rich metadata.
|Intelligent search: Fast results no matter video location or age||Numerous search categories: where video stored, file attributes, access level, metadata applied. Parallel search request to all vaults for fastest path to video. Quick results over slow networks using low-res proxies.|
|Metadata use throughout||Applied at ingest, used in tiering decisions, integrates with third-party analytics. Search and data use richer and more robust. Metadata can be applied at file and timeline levels for deep file analytics. Enables advanced reporting and audit capabilities.|
|Video is always there||Distributed architecture with no single point of failure. Store, move, and retrieve video to/from any vault, anywhere. Data resiliency built in. Continues to operate if any failure: video is always safe and available.|
