QNAP Security Integrates LG IP Cameras to Offer Users Wider Choices

Taipei, Taiwan, September 20, 2011 – QNAP® Security today announced that LG® IP cameras are successfully integrated with its Linux-based VioStor NVR (Network Video Recorder) series. Users of LG IP cameras can now leverage the QNAP VioStor NVR series, featuring high performance hardware platform with excellent data processing power, easy installation without a PC needed, and award-winning data storage technology to establish a high reliable network surveillance system.
