  • 10 August, 2005 12:07

<p>EMC Surveillance Analysis and Management Solution Enables Physical Security Professionals to Search</p>
<p>Petabytes of Video Data Fast and Efficiently</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia, Aug. 10, 2005 – EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, today announced the EMC Surveillance Analysis and Management Solution (SAMS), a combination of hardware, software and professional services that enable the storage, archiving, fast searching and analysis of petabytes of video and other data from physical security devices such as surveillance cameras and access control systems.</p>
<p>As a part of EMC’s growing services and solutions portfolio, SAMS comprises EMC® CLARiiON® storage arrays and EMC Centera™ content addressed storage systems, software and professional services delivered in partnership with select members of the EMC Authorized Services Network (ASN) and leading security integrators. SAMS is appropriate for any organisation seeking to transition its physical security infrastructure to enterprise-class IT standards for improved information management, analysis and overall physical security.</p>
<p>SAMS integrates with analog and digital security devices such as surveillance cameras, access control devices, intrusion detection systems, identity recognition systems, visitor management products, sensors and alarms. The solution offers robust tools for video capture and load balancing video network bandwidth, content management and storage architectures. Customers can scale their current infrastructures to service levels that enable superior security capabilities and lower-cost operations. Intelligent analytic software included in the solution produces faster and better analyses of information at the desktop, central station or via wireless devices; improved integration of surveillance with other security methods; and simplified, centralised management for command and control requirements.</p>
<p>The Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), which is composed of 30 residential facilities, has chosen to implement EMC SAMS to help ensure a safe environment for the education and treatment of youth committed to DJJ care while providing increased accountability and protection of facility staff.</p>
<p>“The Department’s responsibility for the protection and the security of juveniles, as well as for their rights while in custody, is a paramount requirement,” said Michael Dossett, deputy commissioner for DJJ. “The technology and services EMC will provide us with will enable the agency to monitor, in real time, the direct day-to-day supervision and surveillance within all agency facilities.”</p>
<p>Video surveillance requirements have grown dramatically over the last few years, and this transition has led to demand for improved network and storage management capabilities as well as a need for an information lifecycle management [ILM] approach to physical security. “SAMS delivers industry-leading ILM benefits for video surveillance by integrating EMC’s storage systems, software and management tools. EMC has worked extensively with partners to bring SAMS to market,” said Derrell James, EMC senior vice president of Technology Solutions. “With SAMS, customers can aggregate surveillance information from multiple sources, offering integrated digital intelligence gathering and real-time response to problem situations. Additionally, the solution uses open, highly scalable technologies that integrate with existing surveillance systems, while allowing for long-term, cost-effective growth.”</p>
<p>With more than 4,000 professionals globally, EMC Technology Solutions brings a unique mix of information management and storage experience combined with a strategic business focus to give customers a full range of consulting, design and implementation services. EMC Technology Solutions also works with industry-leading partners to help customers transform their information infrastructures into strategic business assets.</p>
