MONTREAL, April 8, 2013 - Genetec has announced Security Center 5.2, the latest version of its unified security platform that combines video surveillance (Omnicast), access control (Synergis), and license plate recognition (AutoVu). This version of Security Center introduces new levels of security that will enable operators to react to threats at a moment’s notice. With greater levels of sharing and collaboration through a new software-based video-wall, expanded SDK functionality, and support for a variety of new access control and video equipment, Security Center 5.2 continues to set the pace for unification, while broadening its technology partner ecosystems.

Security Center introduces new threat level management features that allow users to quickly respond to changing security conditions and potential threats as they develop. At the click of a button, security operators can activate pre-defined threat levels that automatically restrict entry through access-controlled doors, move PTZ cameras to specific positions to increase the coverage of a situation, and automatically change the recording quality and frame rate to guarantee the highest quality video for investigations, operators can even activate a complete lockdown in extreme cases. With these and many other customizable actions, organizations will be better able to fine-tune threat level management to meet their specific goals and requirements, for both access control and video security applications.

With the introduction of its new software-based video wall and display sharing functionalities, Security Center enhances collaboration in control rooms and throughout an organization for a fraction of the cost of specialized hardware. Software video walls can be easily assembled and configured using standard displays; the remote control and sharing of displays further augments video monitoring, access control and alarm management activities while providing organizations with a truly unified experience.

"This new version of Security Center continues to leverage the power of unification with new tools that enhance security and promote collaboration across various security needs such as controlling access, monitoring video, intrusion detection and more," explains Jimmy Palatsoukas, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at Genetec. "We are making it easier for our customers to get a unified view of their installation, set up control rooms of the future, and effectively manage high risk situations in a rapidly changing security climate, all with the aim of protecting people and securing their organization’s assets.”

To ensure maximum privacy and restrict access to sensitive information, a new camera-blocking feature will allow users to limit access to specific video feeds at any point in time. More importantly, to guarantee that video is truly blocked, Security Center can prevent users from exporting video, viewing recorded video, or taking snapshots. In addition to camera blocking, other video functionalities in version 5.2 of Security Center include support for analog decoders and new DVR integrations, with the goal to continue facilitating the migration from analog to IP video, while reducing the overall cost of the path to IP through reuse of existing equipment.

Security Center 5.2 will also add several key access control integrations, including support for the Synergis Master Controller (SMC) to take full advantage of threat level management, as well as full line of Genetec preferred access control hardware partners including HID EDGE and VertX EVO. Thanks to collaborative integration with industry standard access control hardware, customers will be able to deploy non-proprietary hardware from leading access control vendors within the context of an open architecture security platform.

Security Center 5.2 is expected to be available in mid-April 2013, through Genetec’s extensive network of partners and integrators as a free upgrade for all software maintenance agreement (SMA) holders. For sales or upgrade pricing, contact Genetec sales, or a local Genetec certified integrator.
