JungleTV provides simple, smart and secure online management and access for utilities to their CCTV data and video. This is a unique service and concept for utility asset management providing:
JungleTV has secure data centres located around the world, and provides the highest standards of security and durability. Our customers maintain all ownership over the stored data - JungleTV simply acts as a data warehouse and management service, conveniently storing, retrieving and processing the data, providing critical information as and when you need it.
We have chosen to partner with Amazon web services for data storage because of their long and proven history of securely storing data and objects. Some of the data security attributes provided by JungleTV are:
Our storage is designed to provide 99.999999999% durability of objects over a given year. For example, if you store 10,000 videos in JungleTV, you can on average expect to incur a loss of a single object once every 10,000,000 years. In addition, Amazon S3 is designed to sustain the concurrent loss of data in two facilities.
Our storage facility redundantly stores your objects on multiple devices across multiple facilities within a Region. The service is designed to sustain concurrent device failures by quickly detecting and repairing any lost redundancy. When uploading data, the service will redundantly store the object across multiple facilities before returning SUCCESS. The integrity of the data is also regularly checked using checksums.
We use a combination of Content-MD5 checksums and cyclic redundancy checks (CRCs) to detect data corruption. Amazon performs these checksums on data at rest and repairs any corruption using redundant data. In addition, the service calculates checksums on all network traffic to detect corruption of data packets when storing or retrieving data.
JungleTV has a number of smart tools to protect the data and improve traceability. These include:
JungleTV provides our customers with a very high level of access and data security, designed to ensure that only users who should be able to access data can do so, and that the data is stored safely and reliably. JungleTV uses proven cryptographic methods to authenticate users. It is your choice to keep your data private, or to make it publicly accessible by third parties.
JungleTV is built on Microsoft .NET framework, which provides both authentication and authorisation services and management of users who access the application. Whenever a user logs into the application, JungleTV will verify the credentials provided by the user. The process of verifying the credentials is known as authentication.
Although the user may be authentic, whether he or she has permission to access individual projects/inspections, or complete administrative tasks, will be also be verified. The process through which the privileges of a user are checked is known as authorisation.
JungleTV supports the upload of most standard high resolution video media formats, e.g. MP4 or M4V. The stored video can be transcoded from its original encoding to other formats, for delivery, as required.
JungleTV offers unlimited storage capacity.
One of JungleTV’s many strengths is its capacity to store and manage data and media from multiple formats. CCTV data held in standard field collection Software formats is able to be imported through a standard data import routines. In general all formats can be imported by mapping the data fields to the JungleTV database structure.
