Meet Genetec at IFSEC 2015
Genetec, manufacturer of unified IP security solutions, will be at IFSEC 2015 conference and exhibition 2015 in London this year, showcasing its latest security innovations and new products on Stand F-550
The company will demonstrate Security Center 5.3, the latest version of its open-platform IP security system that unifies video surveillance, access control and automatic number plate recognition, supporting hardware and software solutions from hundreds of technology partners.
Key new features in Security Center 5.3:
- GPU-Accelerated Video Decoding
- Incident Recording
- Archive Transfer
- Video Export & Player Enhancements
- Cloud Archives
- Sipelia Communications Management module
The latest release of Security Center focuses on operator efficiency and collaboration, with key updates for investigation, access control, archiving and high performance computing. By leveraging workstation graphics processing unit (GPU) cards to decode ultra-high resolution video content, demands on the central processing unit (CPU) are greatly reduced. This gives operators the flexibility to view more cameras at higher resolutions and frameworks. An enhanced investigation and video export workflow simplifies evidence sharing between investigators and law enforcement. Video sequences from multiple cameras can easily be compiled and exported as a single video clip.
Genetec will also introduce Cloud Link, an enabling technology that allows on-premises IP security equipment to securely connect to cloud-based services. The introduction of Cloud Link marks Genetec’s aggressive move to offer its enterprise end-users a hybrid-cloud solution that adds flexibility, helps them economically scale their operations, and enables them to realise on-going cost efficiencies.
The first appliance to leverage the technology is Synergis Cloud Link. This builds on the legacy of the award-winning Synergis Master Controller and provides a clear path for Genetec users looking to upgrade to more powerful hybrid access control services. It is an intelligent PoE-powered appliance that acts as a fail-safe mechanism when either internet or LAN connectivity is unavailable. It connects to industry leading door control hardware such as HID Global VertX EVO panels, Assa Abloy IP and Aperio, electronic locks, SALTO Sallis wireless locks, the Axis A1001 door controller and Mercury intelligent controllers.
A diverse range of cameras, door controllers and software systems from Genetec’s broad ecosystem of partners will also be demonstrated on the stand, including 4K cameras from Bosch and Axis.
