Iveda Solutions launches new cloud-video hosting service

Iveda Solutions, Inc, a provider of open source and video surveillance services, has launched Pinpoint, a 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 a computer or smartphone, the company said.

With Pinpoint, accessing cameras is no longer through squares on a computer screen, but through a map interface, where users can have visibility of all the locations through cameras plotted on an online map. Live video of each location can be accessed by clicking on the camera marker on the map, the company added.

"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.
