Based on its recent analysis of the video surveillance storage market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Steelbox Networks with the 2008 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Innovation of the Year for its development of a line of media appliances and storage products for the video surveillance market.

Accommodating digital video surveillance's enormous bandwidth and storage requirements pose tremendous challenges for end-users of physical security solutions. Video storage solutions often represent 50 percent or more of the total system cost.

Steelbox solves these problems with a network media appliance that efficiently records vast amounts of video as part of a purpose-built media network infrastructure, and delivers large numbers of data streams efficiently to the enterprise network as needed for viewing.

The company preserves enterprise network bandwidth by ensuring that video never crosses the enterprise network when being recorded, and optimizes storage with network-attached storage technology developed and tuned specifically for video.

"Combining high-speed switching with powerful video indexing and networked storage technologies, Steelbox provides robust and highly scalable surveillance systems designed to deliver video distribution, storage and retrieval for mission-critical applications," says Brian Cohan, President and CEO, Steelbox Networks. "Steelbox appliances can manage up to ten times the video traffic managed by its competitors, and can distribute that traffic on an organization's IP network in an intelligent, accessible, and non-disruptive manner."

PC-based network video recorders (NVRs) indiscriminately flood video streams onto existing network infrastructure. In contrast, Steelbox enables the creation of advanced, complex digital video surveillance systems that deliver high-quality video to enterprise networks, without interfering with the networks' other functions.

The Steelbox technology delivers individual video streams where they are needed. It is able to do this in a multiple network protocol environment, and supports multiple video compression formats simultaneously in a single appliance. For storage, Steelbox incorporates advanced network-attached storage technology, which is designed to be video-specific, and includes load balancing of bandwidth across multiple boxes for efficient and reliable storage resource usage.

"Steelbox's approach provides two additional valuable services – it keeps IP cameras from placing a strain on the enterprise network's IP address pool, and it protects IP cameras and video storage from unauthorized access by users on the enterprise network," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dilip Sarangan. "Today, there are no competitors with comparable products to Steelbox on the market. Existing PC-based solutions may function well in small-scale surveillance, but offer none of Steelbox's operational and architectural advantages that make it a favored solution in large-scale, complex digital video surveillance."

In recognition of its adaptation of IP-storage technology for use in the data-intensive video surveillance market to solve real world challenges in network bandwidth optimization and high storage costs, Frost & Sullivan is proud to announce Steelbox Networks as the recipient of its 2008 North American Award for Product Innovation of the Year in the video surveillance storage market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has best demonstrated the ability to develop and/or advance products with more innovative capabilities than competing vendors and products.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
