SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM Adds ARM-Processor Support and Enhanced IP-Camera Capabilities in Newly Shipping Video Surveillance Solution

New Version 5.2.7 includes centralized IP-camera configuration, support for ARM processor embedded systems, enhanced 'Live View' functionality, and Linux support.

SAN DIEGO, CA. - October 28, 2009 - SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative digital asset management and storage software solutions, has released and is now shipping version 5.2.7 of its flagship Phoenix™ product during the ISC East 2009 convention in New York, NY. This latest version significantly improves the usability of the solution as a forensic video surveillance management system. By expanding the supported NAS/NVR/DVR platforms that Phoenix can operate on, this new version brings longterm retention and replication capabilities to small and medium sized organizations.

Enhanced Embedded Systems Support
Phoenix 5.2.7 has been enhanced to support embedded systems that are intended for the video surveillance market, such as Network Attached Storage (NAS) units, Network Video Recording (NVR) devices, digital video recorders (DVR) and video surveillance appliances. With Phoenix's built-in RTSP support, the system can handle IP-camera feeds directly, manage the onboard storage resources of the NAS, NVR/DVR, or appliance and efficiently migrate or replicate the video feeds to long-term retention media.

New ARM-based Processor Support
This new version of Phoenix fully supports and runs natively on ARM-based processor solutions. Embedded systems that rely on the ARM-based processor can now incorporate Phoenix as the digital video management solution. With over a million lines of code and 15 years of development, building an ARM-based version of Phoenix adds an additional platform for SoleraTec and for its embedded systems partners. SoleraTec has also become a member of the ARM&trdae; Connected Community.

Improved IP-Camera Configuration and Support
With previously announced RTSP IP-camera support, Phoenix 5.2.7 now makes configuring and managing RTSP-enabled IP-cameras even easier. Phoenix has been enhanced so that once an IP-camera has been configured within Phoenix, it will be seen and ready for use by all other Phoenix modules. This RTSP functionality and improved IP-camera configuration significantly increases the overall usability of the Phoenix product and enables the user to get an IP-camera online and recording in a very short amount of time. SoleraTec has also created an online resource of RTSP URLs for RTSP-enabled IP cameras at

Multiple Platform Support
Phoenix 5.2.7 now supports Microsoft Windows including Windows 7, Macintosh OS X, and Linux operating systems as IP-camera video capture platforms. By supporting these platforms, Phoenix can now be used in more environments, supporting more end-user configurations, utilizing more IP-camera options. The low-cost Linux environment is ideal for video surveillance appliance solutions where Phoenix can be used to capture the IP-camera feeds and use the on-board storage resources for retention needs. With all of these platform options, Phoenix is positioned well as a sophisticated video surveillance appliance.

Refined Scheduling Capabilities
Not all organizations need 24/7 video surveillance. Many smaller organizations need to record and retain video surveillance feeds during only specific times of the day. With the new 5.2.7 version of Phoenix, users can easily set the time of day and days of the week that they wish to record and retain their video feeds. This functionality allows for better management of storage resources, more relevant retention of video feeds, and an overall improvement in the utilization of the video surveillance solution.

Pricing and Availability
Pricing for Phoenix 5.2.7 varies by configuration. Phoenix supports a variety of operating platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux as well as tape library systems, hard disk, and Blu-ray units. For information or pricing, please call (760) 743-7200 or visit
