SoleraTec Establishes Top Tier North American Manufacturer's Representative Sales Network

Signing of Premier Manufacturer's Reps Reinforces SoleraTec's Position as the Leading Provider of Digital Video Asset Management Solutions for the Video Surveillance Market.

San Diego County, CA - October 28, 2009 - SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative digital asset management and storage software solutions, has established its North American manufacturer's representatives network with the signing of many of the top tier surveillance and security manufacturer's representatives in the United States. To date, SoleraTec is pleased to announce that it will be represented in North America by F. M. Valenti, Inc., Johnston Sales, ASR Enterprises, Inc., CV Reps, Murphy & Cota, and R.W. Kunz & Associates. SoleraTec is working on building out its international network of partners in the coming months.

SoleraTec's Phoenix™ RSM digital video surveillance management solution efficiently and effectively records, stores, and manages the continually growing pool of video surveillance data-files that organizations have to manage. Phoenix RSM provides unlimited data retention, robust search and retrieve capabilities, and takes advantage of analytics-produced metadata for additional relevant search results. Working with camera manufacturers that support the standards based RTP/RTSP protocol, Phoenix RSM is able to directly capture camera video feeds and continually manage and migrate captured video files within an organization's storage infrastructure.

Phoenix RSM utilizes configurable policies to migrate and replicate surveillance video data in its entirety -with all of its frames in tact and without losing any of its searchable attributes- onto secondary storage resources within a company network. By maintaining surveillance data on progressively less expensive media, including offline media such as Blu-ray optical and LTO digital tape, Phoenix supports significant retention periods and fully preserves data on a lower per-megabyte cost over time.

"It's an excellent synergistic partnership," said Chuck Gorley, CEO of CV Reps, of Santa Clara, CA. "SoleraTec produces a video surveillance asset management solution that fits in so well with many of our other product lines. We are excited to be working with SoleraTec to help deliver the next generation of surveillance systems. Our customers will find it to be a great complement to their video surveillance system needs," Mr. Gorley continued.

"There is a significant demand for IP-based video surveillance management solutions, and our Phoenix solution is ideally suited to the management and control of these rapidly growing digital assets," said Mark Armstrong president and CEO at SoleraTec. "By teaming with experienced and industry-knowledgeable manufacturer's representatives like these, SoleraTec can be assured that our solutions will reach the best security dealers and integrators within the market."

"Phoenix is an exciting product that will greatly aid companies that deal with the growing amount of video being generated and stored in their organizations," stated Steve Johnston, Managing Partner of Johnston Sales in Clawson, MI. 'SoleraTec produces a video surveillance asset management solution that meets the need to catalog large amounts of video data and to utilize that stored and managed video in a way that many of our customers have been wanting for some time. We are excited to be working with SoleraTec and the Phoenix surveillance management solution,' Mr. Johnston continued.

SoleraTec will be teaming with these regional manufacturer's representatives to work with local video surveillance dealers and integrators in incorporating the Phoenix software into complete video surveillance solutions.
