Genetec expands line of SV network security appliances

Montreal, Canada

Genetec has announced the launch of the SV-PRO, a true hybrid solution on the market that offers unified video surveillance and access control in a single appliance. Powered by Genetec's unified security platform, the Security Center, the SV-PRO can also be deployed in video-only and access control-only installations.
The launch of the SV-PRO expands Genetec’s series of SV network security appliances, adding a device ideal for mid-size and standalone hybrid applications to the mix. Genetec has also extended the power of unified security to the SV-16 which is the network security appliance targeted for small sites and distributed installations.

“This recent Powered by Genetec initiative not only supports the ongoing shift towards IP-driven solutions but fulfills the market’s increased demand for combined software and hardware solutions,” says Francis Lachance, Product Manager at Genetec. “With Security Center pre-loaded on the SV-PRO appliance, customers benefit from a powerful and flexible unified platform with the simplicity of installation and maintenance of an all-in-one solution.”

With a variety of deployment options available to customers, the SV-PRO can accommodate up to 100 cameras, or up to 256 readers, or in the case of a unified solution, up to 50 cameras and 128 readers. Security Center’s open architecture allows customers to select their preferred hardware from a list of industry-standard cameras and door controllers, or even re-use existing equipment.

Customers can also select their preferred software package to better accommodate their specific requirements. For instance, smaller installations will benefit from Genetec’s standard packages with just the right feature set, while customers with mid-size deployments can take advantage of the more advanced features in Genetec’s pro packages.

The SV-PRO features a redundant power supply option, dual-port network card and internal hot-swappable storage options up to 12TB, offering significant recording capacity for more demanding video applications.

Initially, the SV-PRO will only be available in North America.
