San Diego - February 8, 2011 - SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage software solutions, has partnered with Cohu Electronics of Poway, CA, to provide compatibility and interoperability between the two firms' products.

The professional-grade Phoenix RSM surveillance video management solution was introduced at Cohu Electronics' January Sales Seminar as a complementary option for Cohu customers. The Phoenix RSM will provide Cohu customers an affordable solution for the storage of large libraries of high definition video.

Supporting Cohu's megapixel IP cameras, H.264 encoding, and excellent optical zoom capabilities -which deliver high definition quality video- the Phoenix RSM management software provides Cohu customers with the forensic capabilities of long-term video retention with ultra-fast search and playback that provides a high definition video platform operated within the flexibility of an IP network.

"With the high demands of industrial video surveillance and the expanding metropolitan traffic video market, the features and capabilities of Cohu's product line provide a level of reliability, capability, and effectiveness that truly stands out," noted Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec LLC.
