Redundancy is critical to networked video surveillance to insure against loss in case of a network or server outage.

Shadow Archiving uses the on-board memory in IP cameras and encoders, or in network-attached storage (NAS), to provide distributed video redundancy. In the event of an outage, the client software can access these files directly, bypassing the central video management software server and storage.

The Shadow Archive also creates a directory that maps the video of all onboard edge device storage to the central VMS. The directory is accessible through a tab on the VideoSphere graphical user interface.
