Spectra NVR3™ is a purpose built, high performance video management software

At ISC West, the largest security industry trade show in the United States, Spectra Logic recently unveiled a new global division: Spectra Video Surveillance, and simultaneously announced Spectra NVR3™, a first to market, enterprise class, fully integrated video management software (VMS) with intelligent analytics and multi-tiered storage.

High-performance video management software:

“Many industries utilise video surveillance for a variety of reasons, and today these projects include vast amounts of higher resolution cameras, more video footage and legal requirements that mandate its archival for years,” said Spectra Logic’s Chief Sales Officer, Brian Grainger. “This market moves at unprecedented speed and operates within stringent guidelines. Our new unit, Spectra Video Surveillance and newest product, Spectra NVR3™, are natural next steps to help our clients stay ahead.”  

Supporting the new global division, Spectra NVR3™, is a purpose built, high performance video management software combined with long-term retention. It is the first fully integrated video management solution to include a feature rich VMS, analytics software and tiered storage – eliminating any unnecessary complexities associated with using multiple vendor solutions. With an intuitive user friendly interface, Spectra NVR3™, allows customers to live view, manage, analyse, record, retain and retrieve surveillance video. Spectra NVR3™ is optimised for mission critical functions and provides the highest levels of data assurance combined with easy to use surveillance video management.

NVR3 Overview:

  • Integrated enterprise class video management solution includes a high performance server, digital tape library, and a full feature VMS.
  • Scales to accommodate unlimited cameras, increasing bandwidth requirements, and long term video retention mandates.
  • Tiered storage allows for 100% of video accessibility 100% of the time.

    “This market moves at unprecedented speed and operates within stringent guidelines. Our new unit, Spectra Video Surveillance and newest product, Spectra NVR3™, are natural next steps to help our clients stay ahead.” 

With increasing resolution, the migration of analogue to digital video format, and longer retention terms, rising cost of standalone video management systems, network video recorders, and disk-only storage have made video management and retention prohibitively expensive,” added Grainger. “Our NVR3TM solution fits seamlessly into existing infrastructures, allowing customers to affordably retain petabytes of video content, indefinitely.”
