Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS)

Definition - What does Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) mean?

Managed video as a service (MVaaS) is a process through which an individual or organization can view live video coverage of a specified location. The video is captured from the on-premises camera and delivered over the Internet. It can be viewed on any compatible remote device.

Managed video as a service may also be called hosted video as a service.

Techopedia explains Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS)

Managed video as a service is primarily a remote surveillance solution that is provided and managed by a specialized managed service provider (MSP). MVaaS infrastructure generally consists of network/Internet enabled surveillance cameras and a vendor provided customer-premises equipment (CPE) device, generally a switch, server or both. When enabled, MVaaS captures and records live video that is stored on the CPE device and is also continuously backed up on a remote vendor’s storage server. The MVaaS customer can view live video coverage as well as archived video logs by accessing the vendor’s specified server.

Besides viewing live or recorded videos, an MVaaS solution enables customers to remotely configure cameras and CPE devices, as well as perform most troubleshooting and administrative tasks. However, some MVaaS might eliminate the need for a CPE device where the cameras are directly connected to the Internet through an Ethernet or wireless network connection.
