Tightly-integrated solution simplifies direct-to-disk video surveillance implementation with best-in-class NAS and high-res video camera technologies to deliver simplified installation and scalability

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sphere 3D Corp. (NASDAQ:ANY), a containerization, virtualization and data management solutions provider, today announced that its SnapServer® Network Attached Storage (NAS) products from its Overland Storage subsidiary are being bundled with MOBOTIX’s high resolution video cameras by French specialist IT distributor, BeIP. A long-time distributor of both Overland Storage and MOBOTIX products, BeIP is offering the attractively-priced bundle to address the burgeoning French video surveillance market.

The SnapServer enterprise NAS family, integrated with the MOBOTIX video management software and MxRemotePreview software, allows customers to set up and manage MOBOTIX IP cameras with any local or remote SnapServer device that is connected to their video surveillance network, allowing rapid response to security or surveillance issues, regardless of location. BeIP is currently offering customers not only a competitive price for the product combination, but also a three year satisfaction guarantee, emphasizing the quality and reliability of the solution.

“Networked storage is increasingly becoming the primary architecture of choice for the direct-to-disk video surveillance. However deploying, configuring and operating these solutions can be a hurdle for end clients that are not fully versed in the integration of video surveillance with data storage, and aren’t aware of solutions like ours,” explains Graham Paterson senior vice president of EMEA at Sphere 3D. “We have had a successful technology partnership with MOBOTIX for several years, enabling us to jointly develop software and hardware solutions that are seamlessly integrated and meet the requirements of the end-user community. We are excited to enable partners like BeIP to offer these video surveillance solutions to the market.”

Added Paterson, “BeIP is a unique distributor partner for Sphere 3D in France.  Not only is the company very experienced in surveillance, it also chooses only the best products available, like bundling MOBOTIX and SnapServer. In this way, BeIP is guaranteed to deliver excellent, long-term value for customers.”

“The affordable pricing and decentralized architectures of both the SnapServer XSD / XSR, and the MOBOTIX video security systems allows us to pursue and support a wide range of different applications: from just a few IP cameras linked via the Internet to large scale surveillance applications involving hundreds of cameras under centralized control,” said Rémy Millescamps, business development director at BeIP. “Also, since no additional third-party software is required, we can deploy the integrated SnapServer and MOBOTIX bundle quickly and with minimal on-site testing, as the integrated solution has already been qualified by Overland Storage and MOBOTIX.”
