Launched this week, Ocucon is a Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) system providing unlimited storage for unlimited cameras within the cloud. Launched in the UK partnership with Google Cloud, the new technology will remove physical limitations on the amount of surveillance footage an organisation can save.
Delivering a cloud-based storage and retrieval platform, the service combines data analytics with the facility to store, analyse and retrieve unlimited amounts of video surveillance footage from within the Ocucon portal.
Offering protection against theft, vandalism or fraudulent insurance claims, the new service is expected to be of interest to any organisation capturing large amounts of CCTV data, such as transport hubs or local authorities.
Co-Founder, Gary Trotter commented: “Typically, businesses are restricted to saving 30 days of surveillance footage purely because of the sheer scale and size of the data. However, the threat of litigation and fraudulent claims – many of which are received after 30 days has passed – has resulted in increasing numbers of businesses needing to store their security footage for longer.
“Ocucon is the first cloud-based software system that processes and transmits unlimited amounts of CCTV footage into the cloud. Providing organisations with the flexibility to store uncapped amounts of data for as long as required will revolutionise the way in which businesses defend against wrongful allegations and will allow for greater post-recording video analytics that will ultimately generate significant security and business insights. ”
