New Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) system, Ocucon launched to fight fraud

A new surveillance technology, aimed at helping UK businesses defend against fraudulent cases of slips, trips and falls, has been launched.

Ocucon has been set up in partnership with Google Cloud and will provide unlimited storage for any number of cameras within the cloud.

What does Ocucon 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

According to a press release, Ocucon “combines intelligent data analytics with the facility to store, analyse and retrieve unlimited amounts of video surveillance footage from within the Ocucon portal.”

Co-Founder Gary Trotter commented: “Typically, businesses are restricted to saving 30 days of surveillance footage purely because of the sheer scale and size of the data. 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. 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.”
