Genetec Security Center Unifies Security Operations for City of Toronto's New Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex

Genetec™ today announced that Security Center—its unified IP security platform —was recently deployed as part of a highly sophisticated security implementation for the brand new City of Toronto Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex (FSCC).

Toronto, ON, octubre 15, 2013 - Genetec™, a global leader in unified IP security solutions and ranked number-one* in video management software (VMS), today announced that Security Center—its unified IP security platform —was recently deployed as part of a highly sophisticated security implementation for the brand new City of Toronto Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex (FSCC). The new 49,000 square meter state-of-the-art facility built by Carillion Canada is set to revolutionize forensics in Canada, and enable them to support increasingly complicated investigations.

Tasked to design, install and commission the highly sophisticated security objectives of the new FSCC facility, Marcomm Systems Group Inc. (MSGI) chose Genetec Security Center for the fully integrated IP security management grid. Omnicast, the VMS system in Genetec Security Center, manages the crucial video surveillance requirements for the facility's perimeter. Several customized sub-systems were added, including biometric access control, alarm monitoring for critical areas, roof line detection and other locations of concern, and completed with a facility-wide duress panic alarm system with a Voice over IP (VoIP) recoding box to record all distress signals for evidence and review.

"As veteran systems integrators, it is important that we work with a unified platform that is open-architecture, flexible, functional and user friendly," said David Trudel, President of Marcomm Systems Group. "We have deployed Genetec on so many sophisticated projects over the years that we have become intimately familiar with its functionality. When we began planning the integration for The City of Toronto Forensic Services and Coroner's complex, we would not have considered anything other than Genetec to sit at the center of the many cameras, access control protocols, and customized sub-systems for this unique project," added Trudel.

The Genetec Security Center user interface consolidates and standardizes the common aspects of security operations, such as real-time event and video monitoring, advanced reporting, alarm management and configuration, and makes all tasks easily accessible via an intuitive client application. Security Center also offers a web client that allows users to perform management, reporting and configuration duties through any web browser, or smart-phone app for mobile access with the latest Apple, Android, or Blackberry devices.

The unified security platform in Security Center is network-based, and engineered with an open and highly-scalable architecture, offering cost-cutting advantages to choose preferred hardware, preserve existing investments, expand a system gradually or develop custom applications and third-party integrations via one of the industry's most robust software developer kits (SDK).
