Genetec will also showcase the latest version of its security platform, Security Center, that blends video surveillance (Omnicast), access control (Synergis) and license plate recognition (AutoVu) into a single unified platform. The newest version of Security Center will introduce new threat level management functionality that allows users to respond to changing security conditions in real-time; remote workstation control and software video wall functionalities to facilitate collaboration; advanced camera blocking to further strengthen the protection of privacy; integration of the HID next-generation Edge and VertX EVO access control products lines, and integrations with several other partners.
