Iveda Solutions Launches Online Map Video Consolidation Service

MESA, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Iveda Solutions (OTCBB: IVDA) announced today the launch of Pinpoint™, the Company's newest cloud-video hosting service. Pinpoint is a video management system (VMS) consolidator and online mapping service that shows location of surveillance cameras on Google Maps™ or other third party mapping platforms. Through a single login, users are able to pull live streaming video feeds from a centralized video management platform. Pinpoint is completely web-based, accessible from any Flash-enabled browser on your computer or smartphone.

In collaboration with Pinkerton/Securitas, Iveda Solutions conducted a successful pilot of Pinpoint at the 2012 G8/NATO meeting in Chicago. Pinpoint was integrated into Pinkerton's Vigilance incident & trend data monitoring system, its cloud-based, 24/7 situational awareness and risk aggregation service that gathers data and evaluates threats.

Pinpoint is one of its kind. Similar services only show thumbnail images on an online map, no live video. And unlike Pinpoint, these services don't have the capability of pulling video feeds from VMS, only static images from publicly-available cameras.

Cloud video hosting demonstrates measurable benefits and value to users. For any business or operation with multiple locations, access to traditional video systems usually requires separately logging into multiple systems. With Pinpoint, accessing cameras is no longer through squares on a computer screen, but through an easy to use map interface, where you can have visibility of all your locations through cameras plotted on an online map. Live video of each location can be accessed by simply clicking on the camera marker on the map.

Iveda Solutions recently announced its first Pinpoint customer. Farmacia de Similares in Mexico, will use Pinpoint, along with IvedaXpress, the Company's plug and play video hosting service, to access video at their retail stores in Mexico.

"Creative applications for cloud-video hosting, other than security and safety, have emerged. Our customers are beginning to realize that it not only saves time, energy, and money, but it also promotes revenue-generating activities," said David Ly, President and CEO of Iveda Solutions.

Retail operations are able to conduct secret shopper initiatives using hosted cameras. Instant shelf inspection for low inventory is easily accomplished without employees physically present at the stores. Thus, restocking is accomplished sooner and more products are sold. Store and endcap display and signage for special promotions can be virtually inspected at any location, on demand from a computer or mobile device.

Businesses no longer need a whole new video surveillance system to gain such benefits. Start with just one hosted camera at each business location and begin reaping the benefits of managing your operation more efficiently.

"Our company continues to innovate cloud video surveillance services that make sense, not only to save them money and provide them security, but also makes money for them," said Ly.

Iveda Solutions' existing hosting customers can now add this new functionality to their service subscription.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
