We’re just about to wrap up what has been a critical and productive year, and we’d like to take a couple of minutes to look back on it with you. It’s what everyone does this time of year, and we’re happy to say that it’s something we can look forward to.
On June 2 we signed an agreement at the end of a round of investment that brought in $4 million, and, though the money certainly was a huge boon, having the professionals at Impulse VC come on board has been key to pushing our business ever higher.
We joined forces with the Oco Group, offering Oco Wi-Fi cameras with the Ivideon service built in that launched in March and instantly captured the hearts and recognition of users.
But that wasn’t the end of the story! Oco cameras are taking over the European and American markets, sold there by major retailers from Walmart and Target to Fry’s Electronics and Best Buy. And all it took was less than eight months!
How do you talk about yourself in a way that is attention-grabbing in its refreshing originality? While it sometimes seems like there is nothing new under the sun, we have an idea: what about using video surveillance?
It’s time to stop pigeon-holing video surveillance as something only security professionals need to worry about, and it’s time to stop thinking of it as tricky and expensive. It can be so much more once it breaks that mold, something Ivideon has done a great job proving.
The company’s cloud-based video surveillance offers an intriguing bit of functionality: users can embed feeds directly into their sites and blogs. Not only that, but site visitors can enjoy both live feeds and archived recordings, something that keeps them tuned into the here and now without losing the ability to check back into what happened just a little while ago. In short, the entire storyline is spread out right before their eyes.
Let’s look at some ways you can benefit from embedded feeds.
November 11, 2015, was a momentous occasion for Ivideon, a cloud-based video surveillance system, as the company released Ivigram. The new app lets users travel the world completely free of charge using nothing but the screen of their iPhone or iPad.

Ivideon is rapidly expanding in terms of both hardware and software.
Presently we have data centers on all continents and our app for the iPhone and iPad has been ranked in the Top 10 Video Surveillance Apps in the App Store, twice.
We have received a lot of positive feedback from iOS users who wanted to see a version of Ivideon Server developed for Mac OS X.
So on April 27th, we decided to rectify this shortcoming and started to work on the Mac OS X version of Ivideon Server. Although none of our developers had any previous experience with Max OS X, we decided to buy several Macs and study their interface so that our application would work on this new platform.
On May 3rd, we had a detailed development plan and a team ready to undertake it. By June 1st, Ivideon Server for Mac OS X was released.
To our surprise, in first two days we had approximately 2000 installations. We also got many letters telling us that the video was transmitted… upside down. Fortunately it didn't take us long to correct this, and next day we have released an update.
So without any Mac OS X experience, our team managed to release this new product in a month. Although no one unexpected one side effect would be that some of the developers would move to Mac – now they say they can’t imagine how they could have lived without them.
We will do our best to make sure that Ivideon Server for Mac OS X gets better with each new release. Please send us your ideas and suggestions, and we will take them into account when forming our roadmap.
