A Revolution in the
Access, Use and Storage of Visual Data

Cloudview unifies, manages and stores visual data from CCTV cameras throughout your enterprise and beyond - Quickly, simply see and understand the connected activities that impact the effectiveness of your business.

Cloud – Unified, secure, accessible,
scalable systems & data

Cloudview securely consolidates visual data from all your CCTV systems into encrypted data on a secure cloud server enabling instant access to it from anywhere on any device. Scale up your Cloudview system without scaling up your infrastructure. Prevent loss of visual data as there’s no recorder to steal or damage.

Functional – Instant data availability, centralised system overview

Access to visual data by authorised users is instant, allowing issues to be reviewed and effectively responded to. User permissions, camera functionality and data retention periods can be centrally administered in line with corporate governance polices.

IoT – Strategic automation of manual processes through connection to the IoT

Cloudview connects legacy CCTV to the Internet of Things allowing equipment performance to be monitored and users to be automatically informed of failures. Interactivity with other IoT devices provides the opportunity to automate processes as part of a Smart environment.

Compliance – Framework for good governance of sensitive data

Cloudview’s consolidation of visual data and centralised administrative control provides an excellent platform for the deployment of workable data protection policies covering CCTV system.

Security – Advanced encryption and cyber security applied to sensitive data

Images of individuals are sensitive data and it’s important that they are stored securely. Cloudview has been designed to only allow access by authorised users, all data is encrypted and considerable measures have been taken to prevent unauthorised access or hacking.

Financial – Lower cost of deployment & use. More value through wider use of visual data

Cloudview utilises existing infrastructure and equipment so there’s no need for the expense and disruption of wholesale replacement. Greater accessibility means more use can be made of visual data that has traditionally been stored on multiple, disparate DVRs often with different modes of operation and compression formats.

Cloudview - How It Works

When connected to CCTV systems Cloudview securely transports visual data to cloud servers.
Once stored, it can be used and managed from anywhere on any device.


Visual Network Adapter

  • Connects single or multiple analogue & IP cameras (SD/HD resolution)
  • Visual data protected by encryption
  • Recording & alerting defined by nominated triggers
  • Remote diagnostics & firmware updates

Visual Data

  • Scalable camera & user connections
  • Secure encrypted data, cryptographically protected images
  • Admin of permissions, functionality & data retention periods
  • Functionality & performance upgrades

1 Simple, Quick & Cost Effective

Performance through Simplicity - Cloudview’s Visual Network Adapters (VNAs) securely connect individual or multiple CCTV cameras to Cloudview via the Internet of Things enabling the secure transfer of visual data to secure, resilient, Cloud servers. Once stored, it can be used and managed from anywhere on any device.

Pure Security - The VNA is a highly compact single purpose IoT device purely designed to provide a reliable, robust, efficient and highly secure method for attaching both analogue and IP cameras to Cloudview. Onboard firmware is regularly, automatically updated to keep defences against cyber-attacks up to date.

The Future of Visual Surveillance – No software, uses existing infrastructure, low bandwidth, full data security, scalable, resilient

2 Cloudview’s Visual Data Platform - Instant, Universal, Secure.
Access your Visual Space anywhere


Protects client data with encrypted bank-level security and regular firmware updates. No complex configuration or costly VPN required.


Connects to either analogue or IP cameras - no extra hardware or software is needed.


H.264 at any resolution up to and including 1080p. SD streams from analogue and IP cameras are supported, enabling overview from old and new equipment.


Use Cloudview’s native motion detection to trigger recording of events and alerts, connect external I/O triggers such as PIRs or use a trigger such as an alarm panel.


In the event of a camera or connection failure, you’ll receive an alert from Cloudview.


Once connected to one or many cameras, no further hardware upgrades or licences are required for increased data storage or extended coverage.


All vital statistics are constantly reported and visible on Cloudview’s portal. Reducing costly on-site engineering check-ups and call-outs.


As Cloudview refines performance and develops new features, they’re automatically made available.

2 Cloudview’s Visual Data Platform - Effective, secure, resilient, enterprise-class visual data management


Connected to CCTV cameras and legacy CCTV systems Cloudview securely transports visual data to secure, resilient, remote servers. Once stored, it can be used and managed from anywhere on any device. Visual Network Adapters (VNAs) connect CCTV cameras to the Cloudview service via a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for data transfer, establishing a secure tunnel protected by AES encryption. Once data has reached Cloudview it is stored using the AES standard, as used by banks to secure customer data.

Cloudview leverages a high performance, secure, resilient global infrastructure with industry-recognised certifications and audits such as SOC 1 Type 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, FISMA Moderate, HIPAA, and ITAR compliant controls. Cloudview resides on a secure, isolated subnet, its layered architecture means that only necessary user-facing components are visible to the outside world, visual data is stored internally, away from prying eyes and keyboards.

Client data is stored over several large-scale data centres with military grade physical security measures in place. Cloudview employs significant protection against network security issues such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, Man in the Middle (MITM) attacks, and packet sniffing.


Cloudview uses a highly durable data storage infrastructure service to redundantly store CCTV data across multiple data centres. The service is designed to achieve 99.999999999% data durability and 99.99% service availability.


Visual data is consolidated into a unified online account which can be quickly and easily accessed by any smart device that supports a browser.


Sensitive aspects of camera views may be redacted to prevent unnecessary intrusion or the recording of private visual data. The recording parameters of individual cameras may be easily adjusted, or cameras may be switched on or off at any time, to ensure compatibility with purpose. Cloudview provides the additional benefit of motion-based recording so visual data is only captured when something relevant is happening. Video and sound are recorded as separate files to avoid mistaken use.

Date and time-stamp accuracy is guaranteed by multiple network time protocol servers (NTP) and a dedicated built-in clock (RTC). All evidence quality images are cryptographically hashed to guarantee authenticity.


Data retention periods can be dynamically varied from a fraction of time to months, or many years, on a per camera basis across an entire organisation. At the end of set retention periods data is automatically, completely deleted. Identifying and accessing visual data is a simple, intuitive process. It may be stored online in secure case files for viewing or downloaded onto removable media or shared via temporary links by email.


Visual data can be securely accessed, from any device that supports a browser, but only by those users with valid access credentials. User access and permissions are required for the viewing, downloading, forwarding or deleting of visual data from any camera. These are all controlled centrally by account administrators, making it possible to create and oversee a dynamic compliance policy that caters for varied, and changeable, circumstances without reducing system efficacy.
