Genetec Showcases IP-Based Security Solutions for Retailers at NRF Loss Prevention Conference and Expo

Announces General Availability of its SV-32 Network Security Appliance, Showcases Unified IP-Based Security Platform and Affordable Cloud-based Video Surveillance System for Retailers

Fort Lauderdale, FL, June 10, 2014 - At the National Retail Federation (NRF) Conference and Loss Prevention Expo (booth #1309), GenetecTM, a leading provider of unified IP security solutions, will showcase its recently released SV-32 network security appliance, and latest enhancements to the Security Center platform that unifies video surveillance (Omnicast), access control (Synergis), license plate recognition (AutoVu), as well as third-party security systems. Genetec systems are designed to help retailers deploy a customized, unified loss prevention platform that can link POS, analytics, intrusion, EAS, and RFID systems with video surveillance to reduce loss and improve security in their stores.

Now Available: SV-32 Turnkey Network Security Appliance

The latest addition to the Genetec line of network security appliances, the new SV-32 is designed for retail and banking organizations that require a small-size Network Video Recorder (NVR).  Now available for purchase from Genetec Channel Partners in the Americas, Australia, Europe and select countries in Asia, the SV-32 can support up to 32 IP cameras and comes pre-installed with Genetec Security Center software, verified hardware configurations, and the new intuitive Installer Assistant tool-included in all Genetec network appliances-which accelerates set up time. The Installer Assistant initiates automatic discovery of cameras and video devices on the network, allowing technicians to rapidly select and configure desired camera settings, recording modes and schedules in Security Center.

"Retail and banking customers were asking for an NVR appliance solution that supports recording and playback on the same unit, so we are happy to deliver the Genetec SV-32, which addresses that need, along with a cost effective way to leverage HD and megapixel cameras and analog encoding options," said Scott Thomas, director of retail market development, Genetec. "With the FederationTM feature of Security Center, which allows independent sites to connect and share access with some-or-all of their cameras for centralized monitoring across multiple locations, and the Installer Assistant, we think the SV-32 will fill the perfect niche between our SV-16 and SV-Pro products," added Thomas. 

Genetec and Prism Skylabs Help Enhance In-Store Insights to Increase ROI for Retailers with Video Analytics

Visitors to the Genetec booth will also be able to see how Prism Skylabs' retail analytics can help retailers measure offline conversion, understand long-term traffic and engagement trends and collect powerful analytic data using the cameras they already have in place.  Prism Skylabs delivers analytic insights through detailed imagery and reports, offering easily accessible customer interaction and business intelligence data that provide sales, marketing and customer engagement departments with better understanding of shopping and customer trends.

Cloud-based Video Surveillance for Retailers

Genetec will also demonstrate the latest release of Stratocast, its cloud-based video surveillance as-a service (VSaaS) system, powered by the Microsoft Azure cloud-computing platform. Stratocast delivers a reliable, affordable video surveillance service for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), without the costs associated with installing and maintaining on-premise servers and storage. The Stratocast system can also be viewed within Security Center, providing an effective hybrid-solution for large and distributed retailers that need to easily deploy and monitor cameras across multiple stores, while limiting their investment in on-site storage.
