Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Live Monitoring and Video Playback are just two of the features of the NVR-1012 Video Surveillance kit that could benefit the security-conscious small business.
Let’s face it, video surveillance is a necessity for many small businesses, especially retailers. Until recently, most video surveillance solutions were beyond the reach of the channel and were relegated to security specialists, but the power of IP has changed all of that. Simply put, IP technology and surveillance technology go together like bread and butter.
QNAP gives solution providers a taste of security surveillance profits with its NVR series of surveillance systems. Surprisingly, it's a pretty simple recipe to combine networking technology with video technology—it just takes a splash of storage, topped with IP cameras and then mixed with the firmware to make it all work.
QNAP takes the recipe a little further by adding Web access, Gigabit Ethernet and live two-way audio to create an easily deployed and used security system that has a wide range of applications, from a retail establishment to an apartment building complex.
