Workflow of Spectra Logic and HauteSpot Network Corporation’s end-to-end video surveillance solution
BOULDER, Colo. — Spectra Logic, a manufacturer of data storage products, announced a technology partnership with HauteSpot Networks, an international provider of wireless video surveillance and security solutions, to provide a body-worn, mobile and fixed camera end-to-end video surveillance solution. By combining the Spectra NVR3 with HauteSpot’s mobile- and fixed-camera technologies, IP video data can be retained affordably on tiered storage, with redundant copies for disaster recovery, for a complete and integrated surveillance workflow.
HauteSpot’s technology gathers video from body-worn equipment, as well as fixed video from in-car dash cams installed in ambulances, fire trucks and more. These cameras produce a vast amount of data, and with increasing legal requirements and lengthening retention terms, there’s a growing need to safely and affordably retain video. While HauteSpot works in the field, Spectra’s archive solutions retain video from their cameras in the data center on reliable disk and digital tape technology. Spectra and HauteSpot’s combined solution allows public agencies to manage mandated retention polices in a cost effective manner.
“Our combined products allow the body camera video to be affordably retained and managed within the public agency. There’s no need to send the body camera video to a public cloud service or other third-party provider,” said Spectra Logic’s vice president of business development for video surveillance, Ray Heineman. “The integrity of body camera video for public confidence is what sets this solution apart from others.”
“The technology partnership between HauteSpot and Spectra Logic offers the surveillance market a unique end-to-end solution,” said chairman of HauteSpot Networks, Bob Ehlers. “Video created by HauteSpot cameras can be retained seamlessly with Spectra’s archive solutions through our integration — providing organizations a complete solution for both mobile and fixed cameras.”
