The article focuses on the video storage solution which is widely used in industries. A majority of video surveillance systems in use typically consist of analog cameras, matrix switchers and standalone VCRs. The introduction of IP-centric digital video cameras has provided new solutions for storage. The conversion or compression function of the DVR is redundant with IP video cameras and these devices are being replaced by network video recorders (NVR). NVR can be independent of storage schemes.
