The value of a video is unknown until it is needed, and when it is needed it is valuable

You can record 24x7x365, capture everything, and never miss an important piece of video with the cost-effective storage architecture of ARQvault VMS

Store video for as long as you want

  • Automated tiering lets you securely store video forever (if you want to).
  • ARQvault VMS creates low-resolution versions (proxies) of high-res video that take ~5% of the original file’s space while retaining fully intact high-resolution originals.
  • Low-res proxies provide faster search and smoother playback without straining the network and have great clarity which can be used to identify segments of video for export.
  • Policies determine what video gets moved to lower cost storage tiers and when.
  • Videos moved to optical or tape are not “archived and forgotten” – they remain an active part of the repository and can be retrieved when needed exactly as any other video on disk.

Configure the low-res proxy video options. You can adjust these settings to have a higher or lower resolution companion video to go with the original high-res recorded video. The low-res proxy is used for search and playback in ARQvault VMS, making it much quicker to retrieve video for playback.
