Integrated Security System for All Environments

Taipei, Taiwan—June 18th, 2014—Synology® Inc. today announced the official release of Surveillance Station 6.3, which won the Computex 2014 Best Choice Award by bringing superior performance, robust reliability, and streamlined navigation. This version also increases the number of pre-installed free camera license to two, providing greater flexibility for initial deployment.

“We are very excited about this release of Surveillance Station, which is designed to meet the ever-increasing need for a robust, versatile, and flexible NVR. This release is not only more attractive for large installations, but also empowers the users to extend its functionality to a variety of deployment scenarios,” declared Alex Wang, CEO of Synology Inc.

Surveillance Station 6.3 offers optimum viewing experience through allowing users to live view and playback up to 64 channels in 720p concurrently on a single interface, and streaming live feeds to mobile devices in customizable quality to guarantee smooth monitoring experience.

As a true all-around surveillance appliance, Surveillance Station 6.3 provides robustness while guarantees high return of investment. It now supports edge recording to provide uninterrupted recording in the event of network downtime or on-the-move scenario, such as off-site train and buses. On the other hand, native-support for panoramic and multi-lens cameras increases efficiency in deployment, and reduces total costs of ownership. Surveillance Station 6.3 now supports over 2,700 IP camera models, increasing camera possibilities and deployment flexibility.

Usability is brought to the next level through the enriched on-screen options and support of joystick that increases productivity for security installations encompassing great amounts of cameras. The dedicated Surveillance Web Plugin for Mac greatly enhances the performance up to 6 times, bringing a much smoother navigating experience. For more information, please visit
