Neptune video recording servers

We have all heard the expression “you get what you pay for.” It certainly has a negative connotation, yet it seems to be viewed positively when justifying a poor purchase.

Over the years, we have seen much of that in the video surveillance space. As many systems were built on unbranded or generic (white-box) solutions with miscellaneous parts thrown in without much care for performance. Rather, just for the sake of meeting a price point or a bid specification. They also generally lack regulatory certifications – certainly global ones.

In the end, it is the end customer that suffers the most as these units have funky warranties – if any – and upgrading to higher-resolution cameras severely impacted the system performance. Often resulting in frozen frames, lost footage, and all the things you really should not have to endure when trying to keep people and infrastructure safe. Ultimately, the security integrator settled for price, while the end customer suffered the consequences.

As the market continues to mature, so has the end customer’s expectation for quality. They want the same level of system performance, redundancy, and scalability as the servers populating their data centers. Those features have been available in enterprise-class video recorders since we introduced them ten years ago.

These systems go beyond recording video for safety and security. Today, they are used for analytics, quality control, and access control as well. The availability of data and reliability of any system is indeed mission-critical. And, the system it is running on should be purpose-built with that very intention.

The BCDVideo Neptune Server Series

Our newly-released Neptune Series of video recorders powered by Dell EMC come standard with enterprise features and quality – essentially at white-box pricing. No need to settle for price over performance and reliability any longer.

BCDVideo’s Neptune servers are the only video recording servers in the world that deliver enterprise data center-quality features that won’t leave you with that “you get what you pay for” feeling.

Neptune servers come with essential, newest-generation Intel Xeon processors, SSD technology, dual RAID sets for ultimate data protection, redundant power supplies, secure remote access from anywhere in the world, and a full system five-year global on-site warranty with special consideration for data integrity – all supported by video surveillance grade hard drives.

The new Neptune Series is only available at BCDVideo, the most trusted name in Purpose-Built, Performance-Driven video storage solutions with over 60,000 systems currently recording video surveillance worldwide. Today, data security and risk migration are more prevalent than ever. Hard to put a price on that. Now, you no longer need to.

The days of settling are over. And they took the white box with it. Good riddance.
