Brivo Brings Online Video Recording to Hosted Access Control

BETHESDA, Md. – Brivo Systems introduced an integrated, online video recorder (OVR) that streams IP video from customer locations to a secure Web platform. The service complements the OVR WebService launched at the ISC West trade show.


Brivo is seeking to expand the market for Video-as-a-Service, particularly among small businesses and geographically distributed enterprises with widely dispersed assets.


“OVR WebService is the first and only fully integrated, online access control plus video service,” says Steven Van Till, president and CEO of Brivo. “It adds built-in, hosted IP video functionality to Brivo’s ACS WebService hosted access control at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated DVR.”


Brivo developed the service with Axis Communications; it requires an Axis network camera to be located at the customer’s site. From Brivo’s ACS WebService application, customers can then remotely view live and event-tagged video using a standard Web browser.


Dell Inc. also contributed to the project by working with the infrastructure-design team. Dell provided the server and storage engineering skills required to meet Brivo’s performance requirements and brought in their own technology partners as needed.
