Samsung, ISS and DataDirect Networks Announce their Integration to Provide Comprehensive Video Surveillance, Analytics and Storage at ISC Brasil

SAO PAULO — (April 26, 2011) — Samsung Techwin, a global supplier of video surveillance and security products; Intelligent Security Systems, a leading developer of security surveillance & control systems and DataDirect Networks (DDN), the world’s largest privately-held information storage company, are displaying at ISC Brasil their fully integrated line of security products and video management software.

Seamless integration between Samsung, DDN and ISS provide a truly open architecture. High availability of real time scalable IP surveillance storage, redundancy, guaranteed zero dropped frames and real time fail-over.

Samsung IPOLIS – High Image Quality Network Surveillance System

Samsung introduces several new megapixel cameras at ISC Brasil that integrate with DNN and ISS to provide a high quality option to large scale installations. “We have successfully partnered with DDN and ISS in large Latin American projects. This integration brings together high quality products to enhance our overall security surveillance offering. Our growing product line of megapixel network cameras now covers additional applications in the marketplace. Their higher-definition images are impressive, and they boost the functionality of system solutions for a variety of surveillance needs.”, said Pedro Duarte VP of Latin America for Samsung Techwin. iPOLiS products offer digital images transmitted over the Internet, real-time monitoring is possible anywhere with an Internet connection. Easy remote control functions and the use of existing networks minimize installation costs.

ISS Video Analytics

ISS has its roots in space technology, which has led to the development of software with highly advanced algorithms. This in turn makes possible a level of intelligence, flexibility and accuracy for video management and analytics that previously was only available for government and military applications. In addition, another key advantage that ISS offers over other vendors is that the analytics are built in to the software, so that even if the customer does not require this feature at the time, it can easily be switched on when it is needed. SecurOS software also offers built-in redundancy, along with the ability to handle from a few to thousands of cameras.

“ISS is very pleased to be partnered with such forwarding thinking companies as Samsung and DDN,” said Aluisio Figueiredo, Chief Operating Officer of Intelligent Security Systems. “With Samsung cameras that provide some of industry’s most advanced, high-definition images, along with the highly scalable, storage features offered by DDN and the flexible and intelligent Video Management Services (VMS) and analytics that ISS has, all combine to meet end users’ increasing security needs. The need to see more, and see more intelligently, as well as handle more and more data, is all addressed in this partnership.”

DataDirect Networks – Simplifying and consolidating the world’s largest IP-based video surveillance environments.

DDN infrastructure provides unprecedented levels of speed, replication, data integrity and reliability to store, manage and access surveillance video. DDN solutions ingest video faster than any other system without dropping frames, scales to store petabytes of data and provides customers with the industry’s fastest access to years’ worth of stored surveillance video all in a simple, scalable system designed for highly-efficient and mission critical surveillance data centers.

“We are entering a new age in video surveillance, an age where we will be able to predict and react to ongoing threats and safety concerns, as opposed to investigating them after the harm has already been done,” said Harvey Kohli, DDN VP of Global Business Development. “To help build robust public safety systems, DDN provides massively scalable video management infrastructure that lets customers easily scale to tens of thousands of cameras with no interruption of performance. Our “pay as you grow” model allows customers to build the system that exactly fits their needs, without over-provisioning.” DDN is happy to align its award winning highly-scalable, highest density and high performance, storage solution with the leading Latin America leaders in the VMS and Camera industry”.
