March Networks is introducing a new digital video security system aimed at small
and medium-sized business.
The new system, being unveiled at a security trade show today in Miami, can record
from as many as eight cameras simultaneously. It includes a removable hard drive
of up to 300 Gigabytes. An average storage requirement of 8 cameras recording
at 4 frames per second for a period of 90 days can be met easily with a 250 GB
The system can be networked and controlled and managed remotely. A new Spanish-language
software interface is being introduced at the same time. The system is aimed at
the security needs of smaller companies, such as branch offices or retail outlets.
A company spokesman concedes the market for smaller video security systems is
highly competitive, but says March Networks still believes there is an opportunity
to be seized.
