Basler IP Cameras Supported by Genetec
Basler Vision Technologies, one of the largest digital camera companies for industrial and security applications, announced today that they have teamed with Genetec to integrate Basler IP cameras with Genetec's Omnicast, a leading video surveillance security solution. Genetec has integrated Basler's entire range of IP cameras, which includes both standard and day/night models with resolutions from VGA to two megapixels.
Omnicast is an integral part of the Genetec Security Center platform and provides seamless management of digital video, audio, and data across any IP network.
Genetec's Omnicast supports the complete range of Basler IP camera functionalities. This includes the MJPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 compression formats, AOI functionality, and multicasting. Multicasting allows a single IP camera to simultaneously transmit images to multiple network devices while only using the bandwidth normally required to transmit to a single device.
Some of the other features supported include camera I/O ports as well as simultaneous streaming of multiple MJPEG streams and an MPEG-4 or H.264 stream.
"We are excited to add one of the world's leading video management providers to our growing list of compatible software product suppliers," says Hardy Mehl, Director of IP Business at Basler Vision Technologies. "With this cooperation, two companies focusing on high quality have united to offer their customers a premium security solution."
"Adding Basler to our list of compatible hardware manufacturers means that our customers will have even more choice than before," states Francis Lachance, Product Manager at Genetec for Omnicast. "Ultimately, we want to make sure they can choose amongst a variety of best-of-breed hardware manufacturers to reach any objective."
