LenovoEMC Announces New High-Performance Network Video Recorders (NVRs) With Milestone Arcus Video Management System Capabilities

LenovoEMC Limited (SEHK:0992) (Pink Sheets:LNVGY) 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, XProtect® 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.

“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. “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.”

The new LenovoEMC NVRs are ideal for businesses with an existing network storage-based video surveillance network as well as those participating in the ongoing industry upgrade from analog-based surveillance systems.
