Cloud software and video surveillance specialist Smartvue Corporation (Nashville, TN) has launched a new enterprise-grade surveillance platform, the S9M. The cloud-based surveillance solution represents a significant cost reduction in enterprise video surveillance, contends the company.

Smartvue maintains that the S9M makes centrally managed video surveillance "much more affordable" for businesses. The Smartvue S9M offers a plug-and-play cloud platform designed to deliver a robust surveillance experience that works with almost any computer, smartphone, or tablet, claims the company.

"Priced at a fraction of the cost of typical network video recorders and packed with an abundance of cloud features that are not available on even higher priced systems, the S9M enables small- and medium-sized business to afford advanced cloud video surveillance, and it helps larger businesses significantly reduce their costs," states a press release from Smartvue.

Commenting on the S9M platform's development, Smartvue's founder and CEO Martin Renkis says he saw the need for a simple and affordable alternative to complicated surveillance products. "Our mission is to make the world a safer and smarter place with amazing surveillance technologies," adds Renkis. "Today's enterprise surveillance products are clunky, complicated, and just too expensive, so we developed an elegantly simple cloud solution that sells for only $199."

"Smartvue S9M gives us low-cost, big-data business intelligence using cloud video surveillance," asserts Phil Richard, VP of sales and operations at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. "There is a growing demand from multiple-location businesses like ours for a video surveillance platform that can easily scale from one to thousands of locations. Smartvue S9M meets this demand by packing over a decade of technological advances into a device that fits in the palm of your hand and delivers enterprise-grade video surveillance."
