GVI Security, which went out of business last summer, after parting ways about one year ago with its longtime partner Samsung , had an NVR product called razberi, which has been resurrected by Tom Galvin who has started a new   company called Razberi Technologies.

Galvin, who invented the razberi NVR, bought back the razberi technology and intellectual property and plans to bring an enhanced version and new product line into production.

Galvin used to be the head of R& D at Verint. He also worked at GE as head of video development. He became GVI’s head of product management, after GVI Security purchased Galvin’s company, PacketNVR, a couple years back
Galvin’s new company, Razberi Technologies, is located in Carrollton, Texas. It’s privately held and its lead investor is Dynacolor, Inc., a manufacture of video surveillance products.

From the release: “The idea of combining a network video recorder, a PoE switch, storage, and video management software into one easy to use and install appliance got a lot of industry attention. By combining these functions into one device, the installer saves a tremendous amount of time selecting and installing an IP based system. The risk of purchasing a component that can’t support the demands of a megapixel environment is eliminated.”

The company plans to launch an “enhanced line of razberi recorders, and IP cameras. Shipment from new production will begin in the next few weeks, and orders are currently being accepted. The company will provide Help desk support for its new products, as well as the legacy razberi recorders and autoIP cameras sold by GVI,” according to the release.

I have an interview with Galvin tomorrow, so will have more information about the new company soon.
