Cost: $19.99.
  • CAVU PRO -- includes features of CAVU, plus multi-server capability. It uses the iPhone's camera to stream live video back to any SKM-video management system. CAVU PRO also offers GPS position tracking on Google Earth maps and allows the use of pan-tilt-zoom pre-sets. Cost: $49.99.

"Our CAVU offerings are the top mobile surveillance applications available at the Apple App Store. They are the most comprehensive surveillance and security applications available on Apple's iPhone and iPod touch today," said Andriy Fomenko, vice president and chief technology officer for videoNEXT. "The iPhone is an ideal mobile platform for viewing your security cameras, and our two-way streaming of video is nothing short of ground breaking."

"We are excited to offer our powerful video surveillance solutions to iPhone and iPod touch users," said Chris Gettings, president and CEO for videoNEXT. "It is very powerful and valuable to view live and archived video, control cameras and receive alarms and real-time event video from your home or business on your iPhone. The visibility is clear with CAVU."

videoNEXT's SKM is an open, standards-based software solution that works with nearly any IP, digital or analog camera, runs on any Intel or compatible server and uses an organization's existing security and data infrastructure in new and powerful ways. It provides the easiest and most scalable IP surveillance and physical security information management solution available today. Combining this with full policy-level administration and its unique flexible high availability Storage Volume Manager -- organizations now have a highly capable, powerful, scalable and easy-to-use physical security information management tool that truly synchronizes security. videoNEXT SKM is offered in three levels: SKM-Altus for enterprises, SKM-Stratus for mid tier features and SKM-Cirrus for the consumer market.
