QNAP makes a line of very good NAS devices that feature Intel chipsets (celeron, i5's and i7s). The devices run linux, and are freely available to develop for. Think about it, a NAS is always on, has plenty of storage, sufficient RAM, and now has plenty of Intel x86 CPU power to operate.
You guys already have a GREAT linux version that requires very very little cpu power... it would probably be a matter of minutes for your developers to make an install package compatible with the device.
This would open up a large market of small to medium businesses and home users for virtually no development effort. The existing NVR solution they provide as a download option is not very good at all when it comes to remote connectivity, reviewing stored video, etc.
