Telsist Data Center Introduces VideoCells' WebVR, Cloud Based Video Surveillance to North America

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2011) - Cloud computing continues to transform the way business is done. Through the power of the cloud and Telsist Communications the $10 billion and growing video surveillance industry is experiencing this transformation with video surveillance as a service (VSaaS). VSaaS is an IT solution routed through the cloud for greater efficiencies with more features and flexibility. This solution radically alters the landscape of the on-site DVR/NVR and analog camera dominated video surveillance market.

Telsist Communications is a cloud ready data center located in Montréal, Canada whose focus is to deliver comprehensive managed IT services. Partnered with VideoCells of Israel, Telsist is equipped to offer cloud-based managed video surveillance to its growing list of professional managed IT services. This VSaaS solution eliminates the need for on-site DVR/NVR as the video is transferred, hosted and stored at Telsist.

Mr. Philipp Schumacher, CEO of Telsist explains, "Using the cloud is an economical way to consolidate and host surveillance video in one location. Videocells' WebVR platform is an exciting cutting-edge technology that will transform the physical security industry." Mr. Schumacher adds, "This platform is the first cloud based off-site DVR solution surveillance that enables security providers to reach the mass market with greater efficiencies."

A web-based service, the benefits of VSaaS are numerous. An IP security camera is the only equipment required. The rest is plug-and-play. Without any risk of tampering, the video is securely transferred to the Telsist data center. With a PC or any mobile device, the images can be viewed by multiple users, anywhere at any time, real-time or recorded. Telsist is the first to undertake the software maintenance and support of the WebVR platform. Scalable, multi-site usage, tamper proof, affordable, VSaaS is an excellent solution for users spanning all industries.
