Salient Systems and Axis Showcasing VSaas at HP Discover
Axis Communications and Salient Systems have joined together at HP Discover 2012 to present CompleteView Video Surveillance-as-a-Service and Axis One Click Camera Connection. They are at Booth #318 in the Partner Pavilion at the four-day event, which began June 4 in Las Vegas.
Using VSaaS technology, Axis and Salient will stream video from IP cameras and encoders over the Internet to remotely housed hosted servers from Hewlett Packard. The accessibility and flexibility of cloud-based services offers video recording availability anywhere and anytime on desktop, notebook and mobile smartphone devices.
Emerging applications like VSaaS present transformative market positioning for companies dedicated to providing the next generation of cloud infrastructure and managed services.
We are proud to work with Axis Communications to educate the industry about the value of real-time surveillance hosted in a cloud environment” said Bob Wilbur, CEO of Salient Systems. “Consolidating surveillance video from multiple locations in a centrally hosted data center opens up a vast new market for cloud service providers and benefits users by decreasing capital expenditures for equipment and installation costs."
As part of the Axis Development Partner (ADP) Program, Salient integrated Axis Communications’ One-Click Camera Connection solution with its CompleteView Video Management System to ensure the highest degree of video surveillance system integration and deliver seamless VSaaS connectivity regardless of Internet service provider, routers or firewall settings. Connection to the service provider equipment is handled without the need for a hardware gateway or VPN for faster, easier installation of IP cameras.
“While IP-based video surveillance provides vastly superior image quality, scalability, functionality and total cost of ownership benefits, analog continues to dominate the surveillance industry because of perceived cost and complexity – specifically in all the small camera count systems around the world,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager of Axis Communications, Inc. “Video Surveillance-as-a-Service – sometimes referred to as hosted video – is an excellent option for end-users who don’t want to be constrained by cost, maintenance and personnel, but still want a state-of-the-art surveillance system.”
