Quantum announced a Unified Surveillance Platform (USP) for recording and storing video surveillance data, and introduced a range of intelligent network video recording (NVR) servers that combine Quantum Unified Surveillance Platform software with a NVR server specially designed to create an integrated device. USP software runs on any standard server, simplifies video recording infrastructure, and lowers total cost of ownership by consolidating server compute, storage, and networking resources into a single scalable system which hosts the video management system (VMS) and other common security applications.

The Smart NVR can run multiple physical security applications on a single server, according to Quantum, unlike other NVRs, to reduce cost and complexity for security integrators and their customers. The USP is based on software technology that Quantum acquired last year from EnCloudEn.
