Genetec Announces Availability of its SV-PRO Network Security Appliance Line in Europe and Middle East Markets

Genetec™, today announced the availability of its SV-PRO Network Security Appliance line through certified integrators in its European and Middle East markets.

Montreal, September 30, 2013 - Genetec™, a global leader in unified IP security solutions and ranked number-one* in video management surveillance (VMS), today announced the availability of its SV-PRO Network Security Appliance line through certified integrators in its European and Middle East markets. Ideal for mid-size and stand-alone businesses, the SV-PRO comes pre-installed with the unified video surveillance and access control features offered in Genetec Security Center. Enhancements have also been made to the SV-16, a compact appliance for small sites and distributed installations hosting up to 16 IP cameras or door controllers, already available for sale in these markets.

SV-PRO

The SV-PRO is a rack-mountable, turnkey security appliance that ships pre-loaded with Security Center and provides pre-verified hardware configurations. The SV-PRO can easily be deployed as a unified security system, or as standalone video or access control solution, and supports a wide range of industry-standard cameras, door controllers and edge devices. Designed for simple installation, deployment and maintenance, the SV-PRO appliance can accommodate up to 100 cameras, or up to 256 readers, or a split configuration of up to 50 cameras and 128 readers respectively.

The open architecture in Genetec Security Center allows customers to select their preferred hardware from a list of industry-standard cameras and door controllers-or even re-use existing equipment. With a redundant power supply option, dual-port network card, and internal hot-swappable storage options of up to 12TB (with RAID 5 storage configuration option), the SV-PRO offers reliable and significant recording capacity for more demanding video applications.

"With the growing demand in Europe and the Middle East for an 'off-the-shelf' unified security appliance that supports the shift towards IP-driven video and access control solutions, our SV-PRO and SV-16 appliances are today directly addressing these market needs," says Francis Lachance, Associate Director of Product Management at Genetec. "With the pre-installed Genetec Security Center software, our European and Middle East customers will now be able to realize all the benefits of simplified installation and maintenance for this powerful and flexible all-in-one IP-video surveillance and access control product," added Lachance.

SV-16

Already available in Europe, Genetec SV-16 offers unified video surveillance and access control in a compact appliance.  Designed to support up to 16 edge devices (or 8 cameras and 8 door controllers, respectively) SV-16 comes pre-installed with Genetec Security Center, and is now available with up to 1TB of storage. The SV-16 is perfect for smaller businesses and retail locations with multiple locations that need to federate camera feeds and access control information to a centralized monitoring facility.  Like the SV-PRO, the SV-16 is compatible with a wide range of IP cameras, encoders, readers and door controllers, and allows customers to choose the hardware from their preferred vendors.
