ISC West is next week, April 4 through 7 — it’s the largest security industry trade show in the U.S. with over 29,000 security professionals exploring new technologies encompassing everything from multi-camera capture and analysis, to access control and cyber threats, to robotics and unmanned vehicles, from over 1,000 exhibitors.
Seagate returns to ISC West again this year as the storage leader with the longest experience and greatest expertise solving storage technology requirements for this expanding segment and its diversifying application set.
We’ll be sharing demonstrations and discussing best practices for addressing customers’ needs today and tomorrow, including what those needs are and how they’re changing, and how our approach to technology will help meet them.
Video capture evolving beyond security applications
Live capture of digital video is no longer an isolated, surveillance and security-specific application. Transformed by mobility, the cloud and big data, multi-camera site video capture can now serve as a strategic system for businesses and organizations not only to address security needs but also to improve customer service and better utilize retail space, among other uses.
Not surprisingly, the storage technology that supports security and surveillance video is changing, too. With such a diversified application set, storage is no longer a one-size-fits all, set-it-and-leave-it proposition. The right storage architecture is tuned to the specific business needs it is addressing.
That’s exactly what Seagate does, for surveillance system customers and for the Video Management System (VMS) providers and integrators that support them, ensuring they’re set up for 24/7, reliable capture and storage, and can get the most out of their video data. For over a decade, Seagate’s been working alongside some of the largest names in the surveillance industry, to ensure our portfolio of technologies support the most advanced solutions available.
Help responding to new and changing application needs
For system integrators, manufacturers and surveillance professionals across industries including banking, healthcare and retail, Seagate addresses their needs for high-definition footage and cutting-edge video analytics with high-capacity, reliable SkyHawk drives optimized for DVRs and NVRs with robust drive design for multi-drive environments, tuned for 24×7 workloads in capacities up to 10TB. ImagePerfect firmware helps minimize dropped frames and downtime with a workload rating three times that of a desktop PC drive and supporting up to 64 HD cameras.
For VMS providers that sell to security administrators with more than 100 cameras on site and video storage needs exceeding 30 days, such as airports, casinos, school districts, transportation hubs, and large retail organizations, Seagate offers hybrid and all-flash storage arrays that leverage flash to provide quick access to recent data as necessary, while keeping “warm” video available for further analytics and long-term “cold” archive data stored on high-capacity cost-effective hard drives.
Join Seagate and partners at Booth #25067 — see how technology is evolving
Seagate’s and our partners’ presence at the show spans several different application needs, including demos using our industry-leading SkyHawk 10TB hard drives and the benefits of its ImagePerfect firmware, and an exploration of our RealStor hybrid and all-flash array storage systems, with innovative components that are purposefully built and tested to function seamlessly together to deliver performance, capacity, speed and reliability exactly where and when it’s needed.
Meet up with us for in-booth demos of solutions from these partners with solutions using SkyHawk:
- QNAP — Reliable turnkey QNAP Video Surveillance Storage Solutions for small-to-medium business needs.
- Rasilient — A demo of Rasilient’s NFD technology for zero frame drops on large video surveillance storage solutions.
- March Networks — 32-channel Hybrid network video recorders enabling easy migration from analog to IP surveillance.

Beyond the Camera: Taming Video Surveillance Storage Challenges
Rags Srinivasan, Sr. Director of Vertical Markets, Seagate Cloud Systems & Silicon Group
April 5 at 10:30am
Surveillance is more than just the sum of its parts — cameras, recorders, and storage. It’s about your business continuity. Customers like yourself are asking about the right approach to attaining this security without being a cost burden and delivering value to their business stakeholders. As camera technologies accelerate, the number of cameras grow, and regulations mandate higher days of retention, so does the amount of video data that need to be collected, stored, and put to work. The business continuity aspect ultimately resides with the storage system that needs to be always available, grow with your needs and secure without hampering convenience.

4K and H.265: Benefits and Considerations on the Latest Video Surveillance Resolution and Compression
Jennifer Hackenburg, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Dahua Technology USA
April 6 at 10:30am
4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video is becoming widespread in video surveillance, thanks to its ability to capture fine details over broad areas of coverage. But with higher resolution comes a greater need for storage. H.265 compression addresses this concern by reducing storage and bandwidth by 50% over its predecessor, H.264. Video surveillance manufacturers such as Dahua Technology have taken this one step further by developing proprietary upgrades to H.265, such as Dahua’s Smart H.265+, which offers an 80% reduction in bandwidth and storage. Jennifer Hackenburg, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Dahua Technology USA, will discuss the benefits of these innovative technologies and the considerations that installers and integrators must make when deploying UHD video surveillance.
Understanding Video Recording Gaps and Requirements of Second Generation Surveillance Storage Systems
Sean Chang, CEO, Rasilient
April 6 at 1:30pm
Surveillance storage capacity is growing at a 51% compound annual growth rate toward 2019 driven by increased camera deployment, video resolutions, data retention periods and analytics. With advances in surveillance systems and demands, great efforts are put into developing storage solutions that enable reliable and quality video playback and analysis. Come find out how the new generation of surveillance storage systems are developed to ensure no dropped frames so you can have the complete picture from all your critical footage.
We hope to see you this coming week. With the speed at which technologies are developing, it’s always fascinating to connect with partners and customers at ISC West. After more than 10 years leading changes in storage technology for security applications, we look forward to chat about today’s expanding applications, and to imagine how the industry will be moving ahead to evolve still more over the next 10 years.
