OzVision, Woburn, Mass., developer of hosted video solutions, created a program to provide dealers of all sizes with the ability to compete in the hosted video-as-a-service (HVaaS) marketplace. As part of the OzVision Dealer Direct Program, dealers will gain access to the direct reseller program for the OzVision Secure Network (OSN) Vault™ solution, as well as new flexible pricing models that eliminate the hardware cost barriers that block dealers from successfully selling video services, according to the company.

The OzVision Dealer Direct Program features OzVision preferred sales and marketing support for go-to-market launch, access to one-on-one sales engagement support for target customers and projects, rebates based on annual sales targets, pre-configured hardware shipped for customer installation with no programming required, and technical support and training resources.

OSN Vault is built upon OzVision’s Continuous Off-Site Video Recording (COVR)™ technology. The solution provides customers with access to a comprehensive set of features and services, including anywhere, anytime access to both live and stored video through a user-friendly Web dashboard, mobile access and real-time event notifications.

The OzVision Dealer Direct Program increases partners’ recurring monthly revenues and provides end users with video services at an annual total cost of ownership lower than a DVR, the company stated.

“In order to compete in this rapidly evolving market and deliver the real-time video surveillance options customers require, security dealers need to move away from selling DVR boxes and toward selling services,” said Richard Bauer, president of OzVision. “Now, our partners can build profitable video services businesses and offer customers a sophisticated solution at a price point lower than a typical cell phone bill.”

The OzVision platform converts existing CCTV investments from evidentiary (after-the-fact) systems into real-time video surveillance systems by providing secure off-site video storage and enhanced video event services.

“Our customers want more than surveillance. With false alarms costing as much $500 per incident, businesses need video in parallel with event signals so they can see the situation and more quickly assess the proper response,” said Butch Davis, president of Rapid Response Systems Inc., Dallas. “OzVision OSN delivers all of the video service options our users want, with the technical support and cost efficiencies we need to make us profitable.”
