Buffalo Technology Embeds Phoenix Rsm Video Surveillance Package On New Terastation Family

High Performance NAS Storage Now Available With Video Surveillance Management Solution

San Diego, CA - June 5, 2012 - SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage software, has been selected by Buffalo Technology to embed SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM™ video surveillance management software onto the new Buffalo TeraStation™ 5000 series of high performance network storage solutions. The TeraStation 5000 series provides supercharged performance and offers an array of business class features including this professional-grade, cost-effective, scalable video surveillance management functionality.

The Buffalo TeraStation 5000 series NAS units now become a full-featured network video recorder (NVR) ready to control up to 20 network IP video surveillance cameras with simultaneous live-view and recording capabilities on a single TeraStation NAS device. Coupled with intuitive video search and playback capabilities along with dynamic scalability, the TeraStation family offers extremely cost-effective video surveillance solutions.

"By reducing the complexity and cost of traditional IP video surveillance storage and asset management, the TeraStation 5000 series eliminates many of the barriers businesses face when implementing and running IP-based surveillance," said Matt Dargis, senior director of sales at Buffalo Technology. "This launch proves once again our dedication to delivering high performance solutions that serve the needs of our customers and our commitment to the SMB market."

Widest IP-Camera Support
The Buffalo TeraStation centralizes and simplifies camera configuration. A user can add up to 20 RTSP enabled network IP-cameras per TeraStation, name the cameras, enable them, and begin recording. The TeraStation supports over 180 network IP-camera manufacturers and over 1,000 camera models, delivering the widest camera support on the market. The Buffalo TeraStation also supports intelligence in the camera, such as Axis network IP-cameras. Utilizing Axis' embedded motion detection functionality, the Buffalo TeraStation can quickly search and play back surveillance video from any point-in-time based on the motion detection levels within the video for more relevant searching.

Once network IP-cameras are added to the system and configured, they are ready for use by all other Buffalo TeraStations in the network for extended long-term video retention. RTSP camera support and centralized camera configuration significantly increases the overall ease-of-use and enables users to get a video surveillance system online and recording quickly.

"This easy-to-use yet professional appliance provides the peace of mind any size organization needs to best protect their environment. This scalable and expandable Buffalo solution can grow as a company grows," explained Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec LLC. "With the ease of use yet professional management capabilities, the Buffalo system is the ideal solution for retail, government, medical, or manufacturing companies, large and small."
