BSI Introduces BSI Cloud Connect Video Service
New Hosted Service Designed Specifically
with Retailers in Mind
Delray Beach, FL - Best Security Industries (BSI), a
premiere provider of certified, pre-owned and private label electronic article
surveillance (EAS) systems and engineered IP video solutions, today announced
the introduction of its new hosted video service designed for retail,
Connect. BSI Cloud Connect is part of a new family of smart, connect solutions
that BSI is bringing to market, BSI Connect.
"Video solutions have long proven their value for retailers across a variety of
departments ranging from loss prevention to merchandising, real estate and
operations," stated Matt Sack, BSI's CEO. "Unfortunately for some organizations,
the high cost of deployment is prohibitive for full scale rollouts or
specialized applications. We feel confident that our new hosted video model
will open the door for many retailers to capitalize on the value of video."
BSI Cloud Connect allows customers to store and view live or recorded video
remotely from a secure connection via smart phones, tablets or any computer with
an Internet browser. Video from an IP-based camera is sent to a secure server
via the Internet. The only equipment needed at a retailer's site is a camera and
Internet connection. This delivers a cost-effective way to store video without
having to purchase and maintain additional onsite servers, DVRs or NVRs. The
solution can be self-installed by the retailer through a 1-Click application or
by BSI technicians.
The solution is further enhanced by Axis Communications' award winning
Zipstream technology. Axis' Zipstream technology optimizes a network
camera's video stream in real time to further enhance H.264's bandwidth savings,
while keeping the highest quality video intact. Axis' Zipstream technology can
lower bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more.
"Axis has been migrating solutions to the cloud for some time now,"
said Hedgie Bartol, Business Development Manager, Retail, Axis
Communications, Inc. "We see a promising future for retail solutions and the
cloud and BSI Cloud Connect is an excellent example of how this all comes
together through our partnership."
