Genetec Omnicast 4.4 - IP video surveillance solution

Product Profile

Genetec announces the release of a new version of its IP video surveillance solution, Omnicast 4.4.

Integration with Genetec's LPR device, the AutoVu Sharp

One of the most exciting new addition to Omnicast 4.4 is its recent integration with Genetec's LPR device, the AutoVu Sharp, which enables the potential for enhanced city-wide surveillance, vehicle access control of parking entries and exits, wanted/stolen vehicle identification from highways using hotlist matching, streets and tollbooths, and audit trail applications. The AutoVu Sharp can be installed in a new or existing Omnicast system that will manage data coming from LPR, analogue or IP cameras on one simple and easy-to-use interface.

Integration of many other fully supported CCTV hardware

It now supports Axis' full line of H.264 cameras and the integration with Sony's 4th generation IP megapixel cameras, from their Network Camera line (SNC). Omnicast 4.4 also supports an even wider range of new H.264 products, such as Arecont's H.264 IP camera product line, IQEye's Alliance Dome H.264 product series and Pelco Sarix H.264 megapixel cameras.

Other hardware extensions that have been developed and are supported in Omnicast 4.4 include Optelecom-NKF's ruggedized and non-ruggedized encoders, GE's line of Camplus 2 camera domes, and more Panasonic IP megapixel cameras, giving customers in any market a greater selection of integrated hardware. For customers who are looking to install Omnicast in a virtual environment, virtualization is now possible with this latest version.
