NW Systems Group’s Streamdays network camera hosting and live video streaming service received a significant boost this week after it cut a deal to take over the running and support of Finetra’s entire video streaming customer-base, effective from 1st June 2014. NW Systems provides video streaming services to the websites of hotels, leisure complexes, golf courses, as well as other tourist and leisure destinations.
The agreement means that Finetra’s customers will receive an enhanced and now full managed live streaming service designed to maximise uptime and minimise latency. NW Systems’ Streamdays service is suitable for use with all types of network cameras. Because NW Systems also runs its own security systems integration business it can advise on specification and configuration of cameras based on what the video feed needs to show.
Frank Crouwel, managing director, NW Systems Group, said:
“This is great news for NW Systems as it consolidates our leadership position in offering video hosting and streaming services UK-wide. We can now provide a best-in-class live streaming service delivering the lowest latency in the market, provided the customer can access an internet connection with 512Kbps upstream.
“We have been able to achieve this leadership by remaining at the cutting-edge of network camera technology innovation for the last 10 years; while deepening our technical support capability through installation and configuration of many hundreds of cameras for customers such as Marks & Spencer, TATA, Carillion, Bournemouth Council, St Andrews Golf Course, BAM Nuttall and Argent LLP.”
Ashley Warden, director, Finetra, added:
“We hand our video streaming customers over to NW Systems knowing that they will now access a very robust, mature and now market-leading live streaming service in Streamdays. The company’s reputation, technical capability and dedication in this area is second to none. It reassures us that our customers are in the best possible hands. They will receive a more consistent and effective service as a result of the move. We will ensure the transition is seamless and plan to complete it by the end of this month.”
Streamdays can also work in unison with NW Systems’ Remote Manager. Remote Manager delivers visual image archives and time-lapse movies for major building projects for example. The company also provides system design, installation and wireless or wired connectivity.
Streamdays is a live streaming webcam hosting service designed originally to meet the needs of the tourist, leisure and hospitality industry. It is also used for public engagement projects by councils and other public bodies. For more details on NW Systems Streamdays go to: www.streamdays.com
