Video as a Service is a term that was coined by byRemote in the way back time of 2004. Our thought was that persons and companies would not wish to maintain an on-site digital video recorder (DVR) to view and record their surveillance video. Instead, the video from a network based camera would be transmitted over an Internet Protocol (IP) address to a web-based software application. The viewer would then then login via a web portal to view their live streaming and recorded video.
Coincidentally, this was the time when Software as a Service, or SaaS, was starting to appear. Where a software application was hosted on a remote server rather than on a local computer. One of our solutions, what we called Hosted Video as a Service, was hosted on a remote server. So, we just called our web-based products Video as a Service.
This web-based software application, provided by byRemote, would then provide the viewing of the live streaming and recorded video. The viewer would access their video by entering their unique login on the login page of the web portal. The person or company would then subscribe to the Video as a Service on a recurring monthly revenue basis.
