- Optimize bandwidth by recording at the edge and selecting when video is transferred to the Archiver
- Reduce storage consumption by only archiving video of interest
- Lower the cost of remote site recording by going serverless
- Maintain redundant recordings on the edge for greater reliability
Minimize Bandwidth & Storage Costs with Video On-Demand
Video trickling is a concept created by Genetec that is an extension of the edge-recording functionality offered by many IP cameras manufacturers.
While edge recording functionality in Security Center allows an operator to directly playback video that is recorded on IP cameras and encoders, Video trickling goes a step further by allowing recorded video on edge devices (IP cameras and encoders) to be moved on-demand and stored to an Archiver for long-term storage. The feature provides greater flexibility and reliability for managing the recordings of their Security Center deployments.
Reduce Server Cost for Remote Sites
Video Recovery from Offline Unit
- Record video directly on a camera’s media, such as SD/SDHC cards, USB storage, iSCSI or internal hard disk
- Transfer video based on filters, including time range, playback requests, events (motion, analytics, dry contact), alarms, bookmarks or interval when a unit is offline
- Using the Security Center Auxiliary Archiver and multi-streaming capabilities from the camera, the system can record on a server at a lower resolution and only transfer high-quality recordings that are tied to an event.
