New Product - VideoBank Review

By: John Honovich, Published on Aug 01, 2009

Video Surveillance storage specialist, Pivot3 has released a new product called VideoBank - a 2RU appliance that bundles a server and 4-10TB of storage with an MSRP starting at $8,800 USD (see announcement). This offering targets smaller camera count applications relative to Pivot3's CloudBank series. The VideoBank product line is similar to Intransa's VideoAppliance though Intransa's appliances start at 2TB and can ship with NVR software from a distributor.

By contrast, Pivot3 is targeting their product line at higher camera count deployments. Additionally, Pivot3 go to market strategy is focused on working with integrators on larger scale projects. While Pivot3 does not stock appliances with NVR software loaded, they say that they do pre-load NVR software for specific projects.

[Update: This product is discontinued.]
