Cloud-based solutions have surged in popularity and there are many reasons to consider a cloud-based surveillance solution, especially in small-and-medium sized businesses (SMB). To meet these evolving requirements, VIVOTEK developed VADP (VIVOTEK Application Development Platform). VADP is an open platform that enables third party partners to upload applications with cloud service into the camera, thus delivering additional added value and flexibility.
SMBs require a reliable video surveillance solution without the sunken costs of deployment and on-going maintenance. Committed to delivering advanced surveillance solutions to its valued global customers, VIVOTEK strengthens their strategic cooperation with Genetec™, a leading provider of open-platform, unified IP security solutions on its cloud-based video surveillance solution Stratocast™. The Genetec™ solution with VIVOTEK’s enterprise-level network cameras, now the new cloud based solutions can satisfy the growing security demands of SMB. Users can enjoy the high-quality videos anywhere and anytime through the internet.
As retailers and small businesses look to implement video surveillance systems to deter theft and reduce liability, new solutions can now provide them with significant advantages over legacy DVR systems. Stratocast™ is a hassle-free approach to business security, allowing you to monitor HD video that is safely stored in the cloud.
Support for HD resolution IP cameras allows you to view high quality video of your business, providing greater detail than what is possible with an analog-based system. With Stratocast™, users can easily monitor multiple cameras, zoom-in on points of interest, and playback recorded video to review incidents and key events.
Video from your Stratocast™ system is uploaded directly to the cloud and housed within highly secure, enterprise-class datacenters, meaning that there is no need for you to purchase and maintain DVRs or on-site storage devices. Because video is stored off-site, your recordings are also protected from physical damage or hardware defect that may occur with an on-premise DVR, providing greater resiliency to your video evidence.
Stratocast™ Certified Partners will help to install your cameras and provide you with on-site assistance to ensure that your surveillance system has been optimized for your site. As Stratocast™ is cloud-based, there is no need for IT personnel to help maintain and troubleshoot on-premise servers, while updates are automatically deployed to your system, ensuring that you can immediately benefit from new features. Furthermore, as we can seamlessly deliver new capabilities without impacting your operations, you’ll receive frequent product enhancements throughout the year.
Wherever you go, enjoy greater peace of mind and convenience knowing that your business is safe, and operations are running smoothly. By leveraging a network of globally distributed datacenters, Stratocast™ allows you to view live and recorded video from any device connected to the internet, including your laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
Stratocast™ allows you to view multiple cameras and locations from a single intuitive application, making it a highly effective solution for franchise and multi-site business owners to extend their visibility across all operations. Distributed systems will also save on the cost of purchasing and maintaining a DVR or server for each location, further reducing the cost of the deployment.
