ONVU360, the World’s First Surveillance App, Passes 10,000 iTunes Downloads

Oncam, the pioneer in 360-degree technology, was the first company to offer its customers a free, downloadable iOS app so they could utilize the dewarping abilities of its award-winning 360-degree surveillance cameras on a mobile device.

Introduced in November 2012, ONVU360 has already been downloaded by more than 10,000 people around the world, placing Oncam at the forefront of a new trend in the industry – the remote and mobile viewing of security systems. Oncam puts business-quality surveillance and its patented dewarping facility at its customers’ fingertips — literally— giving them the ability to monitor their Oncam Grandeye 360-degree cameras in real time, enabling 24/7/365 access to the information that is business critical.

“The response to our mobile dewarping technology has been overwhelming,” said Adam Pineau, Director of Systems Engineering for Oncam.

“This is the first of many technological innovations Oncam plans to introduce to the market, knowing that the bar has clearly been set.”

The app features zero latency, and is able to change its view point and perspective as the user utilizes the pinch-to-zoom features of any iOS device. But beware: watching is addictive.

Currently, the app provides both live and recorded streams – The Aria Casino in Las Vegas; a live view of Oncam’s U.S. headquarters in Lowell, Mass.; a Subway store in Santa Monica; and the Hammersmith Road in London. The top “in-app” purchase is the starter pack of up to five cameras for just $25.

The OnVu 360 app provides unlimited access to a 1-megapixel, 2-megapixel or 5-megapixel stream and supports Oncam’s Halocam and Evolution line of cameras. Streaming over wi-fi, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity, it can go into “snapshot mode” to save precious data if used over a cellular-data network.

The app allows users access to:

  • Oncam’s patented de-warping technology;
  • Unlimited list of camera profiles to monitor all Oncam 360-degree IP cameras;
  • Grouping of cameras to provide easy navigation;
  • Support for 1MP, 2MP and 5 MP camera streams;
  • Support for Oncam’s full line of IP cameras;
  • Gesture-based dewarping functionality;
  • Shake to reset current de-warped stream;
  • Snapshot mode to manually update camera while using a cellular connection;
  • Support for H.264 and MJPEG Streams;
  • iPad and iPhone compatible.

“Recent advantages in mobile technology have allowed us to develop on platforms others never thought possible—many other companies are trying to follow our lead,” said Pineau. “Our patented, 360-degree dewarping technology is a truly groundbreaking experience that you need to see and touch to believe, and we see it as a game changer in the surveillance arena. People outside of the security world, it seems, just like to watch.”
