Transform CCTV footage into visual data, make it available anywhere and leverage it using state-of-the-art visual data analytics.
Cloudview enables organisations to consolidate their visual data, making it more accessible, accountable and secure.
This white paper highlights the recently published Home Office Biometrics Strategy (2018) as an example of the Government’s reluctance to grasp the regulatory nettle and provide a detailed strategy. The document has been criticised by regulators and campaigning groups alike and, he says, created a policy void in which campaigning groups are driving the debate in a primarily negative direction. Citing research which highlights that market forces, social norms and technology architecture can all be used alongside the law as part of an effective regulatory strategy, he says that ‘architecture’ offers a crucial and effective way to regulate CCTV analytics.
The CCTV industry has, for too long, wilfully ignored cyber security, preferring to rush products to market at any cost rather than to spend time developing secure and resilient kit. This approach is no longer sustainable.
Cyber-attackers can exploit weaknesses in DVR security, find vulnerable devices and hijack connections to a device’s IP address.
As cameras become increasingly pervasive, and people become more privacy-literate, the data protection capabilities that cloud-based systems offer will be more important than ever.
The Visual IoT is an incredible opportunity for CCTV users to make better use of their visual data, without the pain of rip and replace.
Use visual data to transform your business. Get it right, and the return on investment can be many multiples.
If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of anti-social behaviour, you’ll not need telling what it is. Or how nasty and insidious it can be to your sense of peace and quiet either.
The nature of infrastructure protection provided by CCTV has to rapidly evolve to be effective against previously unthinkable threats.
21st century use of urban data could lead to real breakthroughs in the way the built environment is managed and resourced.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides a welcome opportunity for the CCTV industry, and its users, to tackle its negative image head-on.
CCTV systems are primarily used to protect people and property, storing the resulting visual data on digital video recorders. Systems remain firmly rooted in surveillance and security, but the growing popularity of cloud storage is broadening their scope, adding a range of new uses while increasing protection from unauthorised access.
The arrival of Visual Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) presents a tremendous opportunity for dated CCTV systems to engage with the 21st century – embracing flexible cloud technologies to improve their manageability, security and reliability.
Cloudview addresses the fundamental weaknesses of traditional CCTV systems.
The six key principles of the GDPR with a brief description of how Cloudview can help regulate visual data
Some difficult challenges have to be overcome before we can reap the greatest rewards. Arguably the greatest of these lie not in the capabilities of the technology in achieving its many and varied possibilities, but around how we manage its use and abuse through regulation and policy
The Visual Network Adapter securely connects old analogue or new IP cameras to Cloudview. Breathing new life into legacy systems.
Visual data safely transported from CCTV cameras systems to secure, resilient, remote servers. Once stored, it can be used and managed from anywhere using any device.
To understand what bandwidth is, and how much (well, actually how little) you need for Cloudview we need to do some unpicking.
A compact hardware platform enabling up to 8 analogue and IP cameras to be connected to Cloudview in a rack or wall-mounted format.
As we prepare for the GDPR, looking back at its prehistory provides some interesting insights into the influences on its focus and regulatory processes.
In the age of the mobile phone & YouTube, it seems a bit bonkers to be manually pulling footage off a DVR — but that is most often the case.
Cloudview has brought numerous business benefits to mhs homes, and its customers, without the wholesale replacement of existing equipment.
Access visual data from any camera anywhere — without VPNs, fixed IP addresses, encoders or clunky software.
mhs homes is the largest independent landlord in Kent, owning and managing more than 8,500 homes. Here's what happened when they connected their CCTV systems to Cloudview.
Why are care home managers turning their backs on a powerful and convenient way to help better protect their residents - and even improve staff loyalty?
We live in a connected world where the most powerful statements and images dominate. As the most powerful human sense is visual, it’s no wonder that visual data is the largest and fastest-growing data component of the Internet.
If someone who uses or experiences your brand is faced with an experience, event or product that shakes, alters or undermines their views or beliefs – then your brand reputation is put at risk.
CCTV recordings commonly used by housing providers to track crime, anti-social behaviour and monitor communal areas are also covered by data-protection legislation.
The ongoing cost of CCTV, and achieving value for money, is a big concern for all housing providers.
A frustrating flaw in even the most up-to-date CCTV equipment is its inability to accurately tell the time.
The idea of having to buy a new, bigger DVR when you need to add cameras or storage is outdated.
Cloudview UK will process the disclosed data only to the extent, and in such a manner, as is necessary for the purpose, subject to and in accordance with the customer’s express written instructions
When you need footage, finding it can be tricky – and getting it into a format where it can be used, can be even trickier.
Under the traditional CCTV model, organisations should set up and maintain their own physical computer servers, or DVRs, locked away in strictly-controlled, private, server rooms.
Without dedicated staff to manage and maintain it, traditional CCTV equipment will very quickly fall into disrepair.

The VNA is a highly compact single purpose IoT device designed to provide a reliable, robust, efficient and highly secure method for attaching both analogue and IP cameras to Cloudview.
The GDPR provides a range of compulsory and voluntary measures that, if utilised and promoted, will allow the CCTV industry to develop a robust co-regulatory relationship with regulators, and new technologies and services while reducing the risk of data protection breaches.
The vulnerability of CCTV systems has been highlighted by recent DDoS attacks, where systems were combined into massive Botnets to take down critical services.
This video is intended to get you off to a quick start by providing you with instructions for using aspects of the system essential to viewing, recording and saving visual data.
With the time to prepare for the GDPR shortening, as 25 May 2018 approaches, data controllers and data processors will be considering their coming responsibilities
When considering the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679/EU), which becomes part of UK law on 25 May 2018, it is important for organisations to understand the new DP regulatory environment that the GDPR both helps to create and integrates with.
