Genetec, a pioneer in the physical security industry and a provider of world-class IP security solutions, announced the general availability of their map-based command and control feature, Plan Manager. With Plan Manager, Genetec extends the concept of traditional graphical maps and provides operators with an interactive and efficient tool to help manage their security environment. Plan Manager is offered to Genetec customers as an add-on module within Omnicast, Genetec's video surveillance system.
Plan Manager allows operators to create and integrate maps of their unique environments into their video surveillance system. Then, users can instantly access and manipulate various graphical entities on the map such as hot spots (pre-defined high-security zones), map links (links to different points between floor plans or within the same floor plan), favourite views, cameras and other solutions.
Displaying video is as easy as clicking on a camera, alarm or any point on the map where a user wants to view the video. Cameras are displayed on the maps as coloured icons, which indicate their location, status and the camera's field of view, even with pan and tilt cameras.
