The professional security division of Samsung Techwin and IProNet Sistemas have announced that they have formed a technology partnership which will see the two companies collaborating in the development of an integrated solution, employing video surveillance as a service (VSaaS).
VSaaS is a video management system that works via the Cloud without the need of locally installed hardware or software. Camera installation is plug-and-play, which means that the camera automatically connects to the service, reducing costs and complexity. The end-user only needs a Samsung camera and an Internet connection.
The alliance between Samsung Techwin and IProNet Sistemas will allow the possibility of accessing video captured from any IPNP powered Samsung device being hosted in the Cloud application.
This fully featured platform and product combination can be offered to corporate partners as a white branded service, enabling Telcos as well as traditional intruder alarm installers, suppliers and distributors, access to a new recurring business model with an attractive value added service for the end user.
This alternative will impact processes of video surveillance monitoring and management not only for the industrial and business sectors, but also for smaller enterprises and the general market. Users of the service will have the possibility of viewing the cameras’ feed in the Cloud through the web, smart phones, tablets and TV applications.
Through the expansion of ‘video services in the Cloud’, both companies will enhance their range of solutions as VSaaS technology, based on the IProNet Video Internet Platform (VIP), will complement Samsung Techwin’s IP cameras capabilities.
Consequently, these cameras will be compatible with the IProNet IPNP (Plug and Play Technology) which will create a differentiated product for both companies as well as offering an attractive alternative for the market.
‘We are always striving to offer state of the art security solutions and an IP cloud solution for video monitoring is fully compatible with our Smart Security philosophy that looks to meet the current and future needs of our customers,’ said Greg Nunez, product manager for Samsung Techwin Europe.
‘The Samsung Techwin cameras offer a complete feature set at an affordable price and this fits in well with the VsaaS business model promoted by IProNet,’ added Brett Boswell, director of cloud video services at IproNet. ‘This agreement will allow for closer integration and generation of ground breaking features within a Cloud based service.’
