New camera support for VSAAS platform

October 2019 News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Genetec has announced that Stratocast, its cloud-based video surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS), powered by the Microsoft Azure cloud-computing platform, now supports new camera models from Bosch, MOBOTIX and EUKLIS.

Stratocast is designed to meet the needs of organisations that require a reliable and cost-effective video surveillance solution without the expenses and complexities typically associated with installing and managing on-premises surveillance systems. It offers a true-cloud solution for enterprise and small business customers that want to easily deploy video surveillance in smaller footprint and remote locations. Stratocast also supports hybrid-cloud deployments for users wishing to keep certain on-premise storage and infrastructure hardware while gradually transitioning everything to the cloud.

Thanks to the Stratocast open architecture, the portfolio of supported devices is also continually expanding and will now support cameras from Bosch, EUKLIS and MOBOTIX, in addition to existing support for hundreds of models from Axis and Vivotek.

“A driving force behind Stratocast is to deliver a cloud-based video management system based on an open architecture with no need for a local bridge or recorders. At Genetec, we want to offer users a non-proprietary solution in the cloud so that they have the flexibility to integrate a variety of cameras to address their specific needs,” said Oktay Yildiz, product line manager – Stratocast, Genetec. ”With Stratocast, users can transition to a cloud-based infrastructure while potentially leveraging their existing investment in camera hardware or choosing to install new cameras from a variety of supported brands.”

“The growing interest for video surveillance in the cloud is a key driver in partner integration to the Stratocast platform,” said Georges Tannous, Director of Global Alliances at Genetec. “We are excited about partner participation and these new integrations by Bosch, EUKLIS and MOBOTIX and we are looking forward to adding more brands and models as they become available.”
