Security Center 5.0 – Genetec’s unified security platform

Product Profile

The Security Center is a unified security platform that seamlessly blends Genetec's IP license plate recognition, video surveillance and access control systems, AutoVu, Omnicast and Synergis, within a single innovative solution. Consolidate real-time monitoring, alarm management, reporting, and playback of events across all your security systems, from one interface.

Here are some of the latest features of version 5.0:

• Unified configuration: A single client application can now be used to efficiently configure your video, LPR, and access control systems, streamlining the whole configuration process for system administrators.

• Next-generation video engine: Security Center 5.0 video performance enhancements include rendering of more cameras per workstation, an enhanced streaming engine that optimizes routes video and audio will take throughout your network, and better video fluidity over wide area networks (WANs).

• Local video caching and buffering, all-frame video playback: This new function of Security Center 5.0 buffers video locally on the client workstation, reducing the amount of retransmission that is typically required for video thereby minimising bandwidth usage, as well as providing users faster access to recorded video.

• Intrusion integration: Security Center 5.0 now supports the integration with third-party intrusion panels and perimeter detection systems. Users can now run reports on intrusion panel events, view video tied to intrusion events, and arm/disarm intrusion devices either through automated scheduled tasks or manually via the user interface.

• Enhanced integration toolkits: The Security Center Software Development Kit (SDK) has been augmented with embedded video functionality, now providing developers with a single SDK for access control, video, and LPR. Additionally, Genetec has added a number of new toolkits to its existing portfolio, namely a web service SDK for development geared towards additional operating environments and an intrusion driver development kit (DDK) to facilitate the integration of third-party intrusion panels.
