A new video-surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS) brand has been launched in partnership with Google Cloud.

Ocucon promises users the facility to store, analyse and retrieve unlimited volumes of video surveillance footage for an unlimited number of cameras.

Founder Gary Trotter (who also co-founded Hadrian Technology and made it into our Top 50 fire and security influencers) says he saw an opportunity to protect businesses against fraudulent claims related to alleged slips, trips and falls that amount to more than £800 million a year.

“Typically, businesses are restricted to saving 30 days of surveillance footage purely because of the sheer scale and size of the data,” he explains. “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.” Ocucon founder Gary Trotter

“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.

“Offering protection against theft, vandalism or fraudulent insurance claims, the new service is already generating significant interest among large retail chains and is expected to be of interest to any organisation capturing large amounts of CCTV data, such as transport hubs or local authorities.”

Key features include:

  • Secure, affordable, long-term uncapped storage of HD video surveillance footage
  • An easy-to-navigate portal providing near real-time and on-demand download access to video surveillance footage from the cloud, with date, time and camera search function
  • All-encompassing surveillance and data intelligence solution via API access to industry-leading software partners Everseen and Facit analytics
