Oncam Grandeye, the security division of Oncam Technologies, was the first company to offer its customers a free, downloadable app so they could utilize the de-warping abilities of its award-winning 360-degree surveillance cameras on a mobile device. The company, clearly on to something, has broadened its scope to encompass the Android market, and is now reaching nearly 96 percent of mobile users worldwide.
“Even though the OnVu360 App for iOS has been downloaded more than 25,000 times, we’ve barely scratched the surface in terms of the mobile market,” said Adam Pineau, president of engineering and system solutions for Oncam Technologies. “OnVu360 for Android will help us reach more than 4,000 additional devices, each providing the same groundbreaking experience our customers have grown to love and expect from Oncam Grandeye."
The iOS app, quietly introduced in November 2012, placed Oncam Grandeye at the forefront of a new trend in the industry – the remote and mobile management of business intelligence and security systems. Oncam Grandeye puts business-quality surveillance, its patented de-warping facility and, with the OnVu360 Platform, business-critical intelligence at its customers’ fingertips— literally—giving them the ability to monitor their Oncam Grandeye 360-degree cameras and analytics in real time, enabling 24/7/365 access to business-critical information. The app features zero latency, and is able to change its viewpoint and perspective as the user utilizes the pinch-to-zoom features of any iOS or Android device.
But beware: Watching is addictive.
Currently, the app provides both live and recorded streams—live views of Oncam Grandeye’s U.S. headquarters in Lowell, Mass., and The Aria Marquee in Las Vegas; recorded views of a Subway store in Santa Monica; a café, and the Hammersmith Road in London. Users may add one customized camera stream for free, or add all their cameras through the in-app purchase menu.
The OnVu 360 app provides unlimited access from a 1-megapixel to a 5-megapixel stream and supports Oncam Grandeye's full line of IP cameras, with its only requirement being the use of iOS version 6.0 or higher or Android version 4.0 or higher. Streaming is available over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G/LTE connectivity.
Both the iOS and Android versions provide the baseline for future apps that will populate the recently released OnVu360 Remote Management Platform, which can integrate with, monitor, store, manage and analyze a wide variety of information types, including point-of-sale (POS) data, customer demographics, IP devices, Zigbee / ZWave enabled equipment, employee-performance data, as well as Oncam’s own patented high-definition 360-degree video streams.
“Mobile Apps are no longer viewed as supplements to a larger system, and in many ways they are becoming the primary method of interfacing with surveillance, business intelligence and device-management systems,” says Pineau. “We have big plans for our OnVu360 family of applications over the next few months as we prepare to offer new innovation around 360-degree technology and the mobile experience."
In the meantime, people seem to enjoy watching.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
