AD integrates with Genetec

August 2012 Surveillance

American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, announced that its Illustra HD (high definition) IP camera line is integrated with the Genetec Omnicast video management solution.

The integration with Illustra cameras is available with the Omnicast video management system, version 4.8 or higher, which provides seamless management of digital video, audio and data across any IP network. Available with Illustra 400 and 600 series IP cameras, the integration with Omnicast gives customers access to Illustra’s exceptional HD video quality in all lighting conditions.

“Our integration with the Genetec solution demonstrates Tyco Security Products’ commitment to incorporating third-party technologies so that customers have access to the most appropriate solutions for their particular application,” said Cheryl Shea, product manager, Tyco Security Products. “With this integration, current Genetec Omnicast customers can now use Illustra’s quality resolution and low cost of ownership for both large and small camera projects by easily adding Illustra cameras for new or expanded surveillance deployments.”

Illustra cameras feature a unique facial detection capability – the ability to automatically detect faces in a live scene and improve the image quality around the face, while conserving bandwidth in the rest of the scene. Other user-friendly features include auto-focus, which allows users to remotely control the image and automatically focus on the area required with a click of a mouse, saving security integrators time and money. In addition, the outdoor camera has a Theia wide-angle lens option that provides ultra clear views and avoids barrel-distortion, especially at the farther angles of an image where events can easily take place.

The Illustra integration follows other Tyco Security Products integrations with Genetec, such as with the C·CURE 9000 security and event management system from Software House.

Illustra cameras with Genetec integration are available through Tyco Security Products’ worldwide distribution channels.
