LOUISVILLE, Colo. , July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Envysion(TM) Inc., (http://www.envysion.com) the leading Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) provider, is redefining video surveillance, giving operators the insights to improve business performance in every location, every day. Retail and restaurant chains, hotels and financial services businesses are leveraging Envysion Video to materially improve their operations (see today's other news releases: PCI Compliance; Delivers MVaaS to Hotels; Kurani's). Matt Steinfort , CEO of Envysion said, "Our focus continues to be on creating value for our customers by enabling them to easily manage and use video to improve their profitability. With our Software as a Service-based architecture, we are uniquely positioned to adapt to customer requirements and continually innovate. Our most recently released capabilities are powerful examples of how customer feedback can be quickly incorporated to increase the impact we can have on their businesses."

Envysion Video, the company's Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) (http://www.envysion.com/cms_web/inner.php?N_webcat_id=25) offering is quickly establishing itself as an industry-changing platform. MVaaS is based on the Software as a Service (SaaS) model of software deployment, where software is hosted as a service provided to customers across the Internet. Like other SaaS applications, MVaaS eliminates software upgrade and version control challenges while protecting customers against technology obsolescence.

As a new category of video services, Steinfort says MVaaS solutions vary from traditional video systems in a number of ways:

-- Entirely web-based user interface provides easy access to video in any location from anywhere in the world.

-- SaaS model eliminates much of the networking complexity and IT requirements at each remote location.

-- Customers benefit from improvements in technology and capabilities without having to manage upgrades or version control.

-- Centralization of user and recorder management allows administrators to easily manage access for many users across a large number of locations.

-- Real-time monitoring of all devices (recorders and cameras) ensures customers' systems are fully operational.

MVaaS' architecture provides strong network security and adherence to industry requirements, such as PCI Compliance, and ensures customers aren't exposing themselves to new risks. "Envysion Video addresses the scaling challenges of managing distributed video systems across multiple locations. It enables a wide group of people to leverage video in a large number of locations without taxing companies' networks or their IT organizations and without jeopardizing their security," Steinfort explains.

The new features that Envysion announced today further enhance its industry leading position in MVaaS and provide even more powerful tools for customers to use to improve their profitability. New features include:

-- Event search and filtering allows users to view and manipulate Point of Sale (POS) and other event data with spreadsheet-like functionality. Users can easily sort and filter large amounts of data to quickly find the video for the events that are most critical to their business.

-- Advanced reporting and alerting capabilities enable operators to use data and business rules to drive attention to their most important store sets. Users can create a single report with alerts in seconds that will monitor hundreds of locations and automatically notify them when a business rule is triggered so they can quickly and easily view video of the event in question.

-- Video collaboration allows businesses to centrally archive video clips into a secure and private managed video library for sharing best practices, creating training video from real footage, or case tracking and management. Users eliminate the need to download, manage and email large video files -- instead of sending links to annotated video for training or investigative purposes.
