Digital Watchdog (DW) is a leading manufacturer of complete surveillance solutions, offering stunning image quality, advanced hardware capabilities and superior video management for any application. These intelligent video surveillance cameras and analytical applications are capturing more evidence than ever, causing an increase in storage capacity requirements. The demand for high capacity storage that is fast, secure, and affordable is greater than ever. Many organizations don’t have the resources or expertise to manage exponential increases of video data while trying to combat ever-evolving security threats.

By leveraging a combination of on-prem and cloud technology, Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage with DW Spectrum VMS provides a low cost, highly secure repository that supports high camera counts, high-definition resolutions, high frame rates, and long retention periods. This architecture is designed to provide high reliability and availability to meet the demands of video surveillance deployments.

Scalable Video Management for Your Business

DW Spectrum is a lighting fast, easy to use, cross-platform video management software. Designed to discover, view, record, and manage video cameras so you can monitor, analyze, and react to critical events in real time. DW Spectrum is a perfect solution for applications that require ease of use, speed, efficiency, and unprecedented image quality.To connect the DW and Wasabi solution together, a third party file system layer from Tiger Technology known as Surveillance Bridge is used to connect the DW Spectrum file system and Wasabi S3 interface. Surveillance Bridge is a solution that works with both live recording and archive drives. Surveillance Bridge automatically moves less frequently accessed video from your local drive to Wasabi. With zero impact, DW Spectrum continues to work as usual as all data still appears local to the VMS. Surveillance Bridge seamlessly retrieves video to DW Spectrum from Wasabi with the click of a mouse, so users can be confident they will always have access to their recorded data. This provides a uniform shared, global file system namespace across any DW Spectrum device connected to Wasabi. Whether you store archived recordings locally or on Wasabi, you can always use DW Spectrum to view them.

Video Storage Costs That Are Predictable

From a cost perspective, DW Spectrum combined with Wasabi hot cloud storage provides the most affordable cloud storage environment for high quality video surveillance infrastructures, including high-definition and megapixel environments. While it’s true that digital video consumes a significant amount of space, it’s not so much the storage footprint that makes cloud storage impractical for security and surveillance companies, but rather the egress fees charged to customers to access their stored recordings. With Wasabi there are no fees for egress or API requests. There is only one line item on your bill and that is for storage used.

Safe, Secure, and Tamper-Proof

Wasabi is deployed in fully secure and redundant data centers that are certified for SOC-2 and ISO 27001 compliance. The service is architected in accordance with industry-best security models and design practices. Organizations can configure their individual video files or storage buckets to be immutable for a user defined retention period (in increments of days, weeks, months or years). Designated video files or files written to that bucket cannot be deleted or altered in any way, by anyone, throughout its storage lifetime. Immutability can help with compliance for state and local government regulations.
