IoT Video Innovations: Smartvue Nearly Two Decades Later Rocking Las Vegas

By Cynthia S. Artin January 10, 2018

As the world’s largest, craziest and most creative consumer electronics show kicked off in Las Vegas today, Smartvue is revealing the latest version of its video services platform.

Video is a beast, and despite decades of technology improvement generally, real time visual communications still presents challenges beyond initial Proof of Concepts. It can be expensive, it can be hacked including cybercriminals penetrating enterprise networks through video ports and pivoting into systems and databases where information can be comprimised and networks can be disabled, and high costs given the requirements for bandwidth, transcoding, and compute power at edge.

Smartvue has been around awhile, and was a pioneer at CES, when, in 1999 they won the Best of Show award. According to the company’s announcement, they today upload more video than YouTube every 24 hours.’

“There are significant challenges with IoT video implementation, starting with security and ending with the end user experience,” said Martin Renkis, Founder and CEO of Smartvue Corporation. “Our mission for two decades has been to make video secure and fast at scale for our customers and we are proud to be back at CES once again and working with amazing new customers in the IoT market.”

Ayla Networks uses the Cloudvue platform to help manufacturers of IoT products deliver revenue-generating video features to their customers, including enablement of video recording and playback with IoT devices deployed on the Ayla platform, data analysis of IoT device and video camera events, and centralized consumer account management and control.

"Smartvue exponentially speeds time to market for IoT video services," said David Friedman, CEO and Co-Founder of Ayla Networks. "The Cloudvue platform with its robust API, SDK, and integrated billing system empowers device manufacturers to create new revenue generating IoT services.

Cloudvue’s 2018 platform claims several industry firsts including:

-   Video device and services management portal which enables monitoring,

    management, and support of millions of video powered devices including OTA updates and user

    services management, all from one interface

-   Embedded device software supports fast integration with almost any device, even with

    limited resources

-   Expanded distribution of video services to 140 countries

-   Embedded servers supporting thousands of camera models from camera manufacturers

-   Stripe integration for integrating billing systems supporting video services

-  APIs which open hundreds of video service calls for any type of cloud integration including

    video analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence applications
