Genetec Releases Latest Version Of Unified Security Platform
Genetec announced the release of the latest version of its unified security platform, Security Center 5.0
With this latest release, the Security Center now supports an embedded video recording and streaming engine. Additional features include, among others, an enhanced architecture that facilitates the installation and maintenance of the platform, third-party intrusion integration of alarm panels and perimeter detection devices, a new plug-in architecture for adding third-party integrations, standby and redundant archiving capabilities.
One of the most significant enhancements is the addition of Genetec’s next generation video and streaming engine within the unified platform, continuing to benefit from the power of Genetec’s video surveillance system, Omnicast.
With Security Center 5.0, customers will now be able to configure and manage IP cameras and encoders, recording schedules, camera settings, and much more. More importantly, the same configuration application can be used to configure the Security Center’s Synergis access control and AutoVu license plate recognition systems.
Benefits that naturally flow out of the Security Center’s architecture include the use of common features across all platforms, consistent workflows for configuration and reporting activities, reduced training costs, and most importantly, a single interface for monitoring all your security and safety applications.
“Security Center 5.0 brings to the market Genetec's latest video management engine based on our Omnicast 4 platform but with significant enhancements with respect to video streaming, rendering, and recording,” said Jimmy Palatsoukas, senior product manager at Genetec. “We have also worked diligently to expand, as well as to enhance the deployment and maintenance capabilities of the system. The end result is not just a platform that provides the highest level of security, but also one that is easy to deploy, configure, and use on a daily basis.”
