BCD Consolidates Name to Streamline Branding

BCD says by moving to one brand, it reasserts its position in the marketplace as the go-to leader, partner and advisor for all video storage needs.

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. — BCDVideo, a provider of IP video storage solutions, announces that all of its product offerings and programs will soon move under one name: BCD.

“Through its renowned solutions from the BCDVideo and Video Storage Solutions (VSS) product lines, as well as through its attractive partner initiatives like the BCDOEM and A&E Security Specifiers programs, ‘BCD’ has become the name customers associate with unparalleled expertise, proven performance and professional service,” the company wrote in a blog post.

BCD says by moving to one brand, it reasserts its position in the marketplace as the go-to leader, partner and advisor for all video storage needs.

In effect, customers will be able to find a solution to address any and every surveillance storage infrastructure problem in one place, providing a better customer and partner experience, according to the company.

The company says it will continue to offer the following products, programs and services, which will be consolidated under the BCD name:

BCDVideo Purpose-Built Appliances: BCD’s direct-to-integrator product line allows security integrators to implement security solutions certified and validated by the top video management software (VMS) companies and digital camera manufacturers. System integrators can continue to purchase BCD’s purpose-built video surveillance storage servers, access control and harsh environment servers, client viewing stations, Cloud-ready appliances and ALE networking switches. Customers can also utilize BCD’s professional on-site services team who assists customers in meeting critical project goals and deadlines.

Video Storage Solutions (VSS) Pre-engineered Appliances: Purposed with offering pre-engineered video appliances, validated for security, VSS appliances are available exclusively through authorized security distributors. VSS products include Cloud-ready appliances; Milestone XProtect appliances; ready-built solutions for several VMS and camera manufacturers, storage; and networking appliances.

REVOLV Hybrid Hyperconverged Infrastructure (hHCI): BCD’s REVOLV Hybrid Hyperconverged Infrastructure (hHCI) solution consolidates multiple workloads and provides an option for companies that would like to independently increase or scale one virtual hardware system without increasing or scaling another. REVOLV is available in three models: DEEPSTOR Lite, DEEPSTOR and DEEPSTOR+. Each solution has the ability to be scaled to fit the specific needs of the project, particularly for verticals such as healthcare, gaming, transit and government where the video is critical.

OEM Program: BCDOEM is a program designed to help software manufacturers, including VMS, video analytics, and access control companies, grow their business by using BCD’s design services and extensive inventory of purpose-built video appliances and readily available technical support. With over 40 private-label customers, BCD’s dedicated team offers turnkey solutions for customers to sell through their channel partners.

A&E Security Specifiers Program: Supporting the consulting community is just as important as delivering reliable, high-performing products. BCD’s A&E Security Specifiers Program offers a dedicated support team and online portal, featuring a library of technical resources, education, and collateral to assist with guaranteed video data infrastructure product placement and design.

The company will also be transitioning to one website, bcdvideo.com, and one LinkedIn and Twitter account.

In July, BCD received an investment from private equity firm High Street Capital that was said to result in a partial recapitalization and support the company’s strategic growth plans.
