LenovoEMC’s New Performance NVRs Support Milestone Interconnect for Unlimited Survelliance Scaling

Lenovo used the ISC West security tradeshow as an opportunity to unveil two new high-performance 2-bay and 4-bay network video recorders.

Lenovo used the ISC West security tradeshow as an opportunity to unveil two new high-performance 2-bay and 4-bay network video recorders. It’s looks much like the ix4-400d NAS we saw debut at CES, but it now ships with video management software from Milestone Systems, like Milestone Interconnect and Mileston Arcus, to offer additional features and flexibility out of the box for easy deployment and unlimited scaling across connected NVRs around the globe.

Existing px series users need not feel left out; all existing LenovoEMC px Series network storage products, desktop and rackmount models, can upgrade to the new Milestone Arcus VMS as a downloadable application.

Pricing for the 2-bay model starts at $999 and jumps to $2,299 for the 4-bay, but these include at least 4 camera licenses which explains the higher pricetags. Bundles with more camera licenses are available, too. Details and features in the release below.

LenovoEMC Limited today announced a new class of high performance, affordable double-drive and four-drive desktop network video recorders (NVRs) utilizing the latest in industry-leading video management software (VMS) from Milestone Systems, creating an advanced, scalable and secure video surveillance solution ideal for single locations as well as distributed corporate enterprise installations.

The LenovoEMC px2-300d NVR and the new px4-400d NVR include support for the Milestone Interconnect feature, which allows the network storage devices to be interconnected with Milestone’s premium software, XProtectÆ Corporate, providing unlimited scalability in a cost-efficient and flexible central surveillance operation across geographically dispersed sites and numerous NVR units. (Separate Milestone Interconnect licenses sold by Milestone’s sales channel.)

The new LenovoEMC NVR with Milestone Arcus is bundled with camera licenses and software update plans for easy deployment out of the box and future feature and performance updates. †Owners of all existing LenovoEMC px Series network storage products, desktop and rackmount models, can upgrade to the new Milestone Arcus VMS as a download application.

LenovoEMC will unveil its new line of NVR products in the Milestone Systems booth (#20060) at the ISC West security tradeshow this week in Las Vegas (April 2-4).†

“By combining our LenovoEMC world-class network storage technology with the Milestone Arcus VMS, we have created new NVRs that deliver superior reliability, image †quality, ease of installation and affordability unlike any other IP video surveillance solution available today,” said Andrew Hugo, Director, Storage Product Marketing, Lenovo Enterprise Product Division.† “Utilizing the Milestone Interconnect feature, the new LenovoEMC NVRs can now become part of a larger geographically dispersed surveillance network for enterprises as well as smaller business entities.† Whether you are a small office, an SMB or a distributed enterprise, our new LenovoEMC NVRs are versatile enough to grow with your business and security needs.”

Lars Nordenlund Friis,†VP Incubation and Ventures at Milestone Systems, said, “The LenovoEMC NAS†products†were the first†Milestone Arcus embedded devices†in the industry, and it has been exciting to follow how the LenovoEMC team has†successively launched the products globally. †It is very promising that market demand has led to an extension of the portfolio of storage devices to include enterprise-class rackmounts with more capable processor and storage capabilities.† The importance of Milestone Interconnect to address installations with many sites and very high camera counts is proving significant†with Milestone Arcus solutions, allowing the end user to take a dynamic approach to what capabilities are needed where†and when -†in essence,†unlimited scalability.”
