Genetec Stratocast, a manufacturer of open platform, unified IP security solutions today announced that Digicel Business, a leading communications provider in the Caribbean and Central America has chosen Genetec’s Stratocast™ cloud-based Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) solution to power its latest business solutions product, Digicel Eye. Designed for small and mid-size business (SMB) customers, Digicel Eye enables business owners to keep an eye on their business operations from their computer, cell phone or tablet, regardless of where they are, 24/7.
Digicel Eye is available as a fully managed service to Caribbean customers and delivers high-end and reliable video surveillance without the costs and complexities associated with installing and managing on-premises hardware and storage. It comes with round-the-clock customer support as well as cloud-based storage—eliminating the possibility of data loss when customers need it most, in the event of a natural disaster, physical damage or theft.
With Digicel Eye, customers enjoy greater peace of mind and convenience knowing that their business is safe, and operations are running smoothly wherever they go. Powered by Stratocast, Digicel Eye allows business owners to view live and recorded video that is safely stored in the cloud from any Internet connected-device.
“We’re delighted to launch Digicel Eye as our cloud based video surveillance solution that is specifically designed for small-and-medium sized businesses. With this solution being accessible from anywhere, using either a tablet, PC or mobile phone, we have kept end user mobility in mind. We are proud to provide this service in partnership with Genetec – global leaders in IP security,” said Martin Carroll, Digicel Business, Director of Products.
Powered by Microsoft Corp.’s Azure cloud-computing platform, Stratocast enables customers to deploy an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based video surveillance system that provides support for HD video resolutions, and edge recording capabilities to reduce the bandwidth that is required.
