Product Profile

Omnicast 4.7 – IP Video Surveillance System

Omnicast is the IP video surveillance system of the Security Center, Genetec’s unified security platform. It is the perfect solution for organizations requiring seamless management of digital video, audio and data across any IP network. The release of the latest version Omnicast 4.7 provides an array of new features and enhancements to the system.

New Features & Enhancements

  •  Video Trickling: Video trickling leverages the recording capabilities of the edge devices (IP cameras and encoders) by providing the ability to choose and transfer the video from the edge on demand and store it in Omnicast for long-term archiving. This new feature allows for increased recording reliability, bandwidth usage optimization by only transferring video of interest at the right time, and the opportunity to lower costs of remote-site recording by going serverless.
  • HTTPS support: HTTPS support increases security of the edge device communications by encrypting the commands and controls of the cameras. The support for HTTPS is available with all Axis cameras and encoders, fifth generation Sony cameras, and the Genetec extension when supported by the partner.
  • Simplified unit enrolment process: It is now possible to search and enroll cameras by manufacturer name and add units to the system based on a specific IP address range so that multiple units can be added simultaneously, saving considerable time during setup.
  • Support for Axis cameras’ Cross Line Detection feature: Customers can now monitor and handle cross line alarms within Omnicast, and search for cross line alarms directly from the Archive Player.
  • Additional languages: In order to enhance the user experience, Arabic, Persian, Thai and Russian languages have been added to Omnicast 4.7. The user interface has also been adjusted to read from right to left in both Arabic and Persian.
