Not everyone has a need for video surveilance equipment, but it IS kinda nice to know what is happening with such technologies because stuff developed for security requirements today may end up in the consumer market in 5 years or so.  To that end, Dark Reading has an interesting article about a product from an outfit called SteelBox :

'SteelBox has developed a video surveillance device -- essentially an IP network switch -- that is capable of prioritizing and storing large amounts of video data without sucking up enterprise network and storage resources.

"Where similar types of [network video recorders] can only handle maybe 64 cameras in a single box, ours can handle 500," Howes says.'
