Geovision Launches Direct Cloud Offering

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Jan 18, 2017

Add cloud, subtract integrator.

Geovision has launched myGVcloud, an offering that allows consumers to buy cameras and cloud services directly from Geovision. An image below from our testing:

This is certainly not the first professional manufacturer to offer a cloud service (e.g., Axis has had AVHS for more than a decade) but Geovision has made it that consumers buy directly off the Geovision myGVcloud website. Indeed, we bought a $50 720p camera and tested out the service.
