At ISC West 2016, both Genetec (booth #26057) and Axis (booth #14059) will present this security collaboration designed to protect the integrity and privacy of surveillance content starting at the camera or 'edge' and extending all the way to the Archiver and the Security Desk.

"SRTP is a strong technology that will enhance our industry and continue to push cybersecurity to the next level in the physical surveillance world."  

"Genetec and Axis Communications have always collaborated to provide their end-users the highest quality integration of video capture at the edge with analysis, management, and storage in Security Center-from a single camera to a large number of cameras in a multicast configuration," said  Francis Lachance, Director of Product Management, Genetec Inc.  "At ISC West 2016, we will show an important advancement in the 'Security of Security' with a secure camera to archiver solution for Axis cameras and Genetec™ Security Center."   

End-to-end encryption will be applicable to select models from the latest generation of Axis security cameras, and will work in any type of deployment: from single-camera to a multicast environment, feeding multiple archivers or a combination of Archiver servers and Security Desk stations in Security Center.
