Testing Rogo's Managed VSaaS

Author: Benros Emata, Published on Aug 03, 2010

Managed / hosted video offerings continue to expand with a variety of technical and business approaches.

In this test, we examine Rogo's Managed Video offering. The system uses an on-site recording application that interfaces with USB and network cameras, providing 'plug n play' remote access. For background on USB cameras, review our test results on using Megapixel USB cameras for video surveillance.

Compare to other managed/hosted video offerings including our test results of VIAAS and of Axis AVHS. For the most comprehensive coverage on managed/hosted video, read our Managed/Hosted Video Surveillance Guide.

Setup:  For the SMB and SOHO environments, installation is not complicated. The low requirement of technical knowledge will ease deployments and time dedicated to setting up the system. If strictly deploying USB cameras, almost no configurations are required to get the system up and recording. Power users seeking enterprise level features, such as managing multiple workstations will not be satisfied with Rogo's simplistic approach.

Live ********** / **************:  Its clear that Rogo's system is not scalable when lacking basic functionality in both live monitoring and investigations. For those customers seeking extensive investigative features or require more 'complete' live monitoring abilities, should examine these areas carefully. For the features that are provided, controls are clearly labeled and are all displayed on the interface. Those that are new the video surveillance will find the system easy to adopt.
