Genetec Introduces New Network Security Appliance to Product Lineup

SV-32 Will Build on Company’s Success in Retail and Banking to Offer Expanded Options for a Cost-Effective Turnkey System for Integrators and End Users.

Montreal, March 26, 2014 - Genetec™, a leading provider of unified IP security solutions, today announced the SV-32, the latest offering in its line of turnkey network security appliances. Designed for customers that require a small size Network Video Recorder (NVR)—such as retail and banking organizations—the SV-32 will be able to support up to 32 cameras, and will offer local viewing and recording capabilities. The SV-32 network security appliance is expected to be available in late spring 2014 to Genetec channel partners and customers in the Americas, Australia, Europe and select countries in Asia. The SV-32 will be unveiled at ISC West 2014 (Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas - Booth #23027).

Powered by Genetec Security Center, the SV-32 will ship with pre-installed software, verified hardware configurations, and a new intuitive Installer Assistant tool. The new Installer Assistant tool, which will be included with the entire line of SV network security appliances, will further facilitate and accelerate the configuration and commissioning of customers' surveillance systems. The tool will provide automatic discovery and enrollment of cameras and video devices on the network, while also allowing technicians to rapidly select and configure desired camera settings, recording modes and schedules in Security Center.

"With the ability to manage video monitoring and recording locally, the SV-32 will provide customers with a simple, turnkey solution to facilitate the replacement of their DVRs and migrate to an IP system," said Francis Lachance, Director of Product Management at Genetec. "Customers will benefit from the Security Center platform, giving them the ability to monitor multiple sites and work with an intuitive user interface that enables operators to rapidly respond to incidents, and access to powerful search and reporting tools to help accelerate their investigations", added Lachance.

SV- 32 customers will be able to choose from a wide range of HD and megapixel cameras from industry-leading edge device partners, as well as cost-effective video encoders to leverage existing analog hardware to cut down on the cost of transitioning to a fully network-based system.

For end users requiring a surveillance system that spans multiple sites, the SV-32 network security appliance can be installed in distributed locations and monitored centrally using the Genetec FederationTM feature capability. FederationTM feature allows customers to deploy the SV-32 in multiple independent sites, while extending monitoring capabilities to other locations and operators, helping to facilitate and centralize surveillance operations, as part of a single virtual system.  The advanced architecture of the SV-32 will be able to synchronize cameras and all related events and alarms between sites in real time, with no manual intervention required, while still retaining the local autonomy of individual sites of their own monitoring and configuration requirements.
