StarterBlock™ for Smart CCTV Upgrades for 1 to several DVRs with increased video retention capacity A single StarterBlock™ system can provide video data management and retention for 1 or more typical DVRs, each driving 8 to 16 channels for analog cameras. And often for less than the cost of a new DVR or to upgrade that device with failure-prone, captive disk storage. StarterBlock™ extends the life of CCTV systems with advanced, RAID-protected video retention that eliminates the risk of lost video while cutting the amount of required storage overhead. With hot-swap disk drives and field replaceable components, recording never stops while email alerts provide advanced warning of little issues before they can ever become big problems. Best of all, Intransa Smart CCTV Upgrades™ leverage existing DVRs, analog cameras, and even cabling for total investment protection. StarterBlock™ also supports digital technology, IP cameras, NVRs, and other IP devices, enabling the best of both worlds, and providing an inexpensive, riskfree migration path to IP when desired.
