Recording database corruption isn’t exactly an attention grabber except when it brings your surveillance system to a grinding halt. A mussed up database renders a system totally unusable until repaired – if it can be repaired at all.
How often do database problems occur? More often than most will admit and the subject, if mentioned at all, is buried deep inside a software user manual. The number one cause of a compromised database is an NVR that has been abruptly shutdown through power failure or user intervention.
With the introduction of MxFFS Archive Storage, MOBOTIX is addressing this issue head on by making the camera’s internal microSD card, rather than the central recording device, the primary storage target. This is a profound and efficient way to resolve an issue that has plagued security camera systems for years.
