By SP&T Staff
Genetec 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.
According to the company, Stratocast offers a cloud solution for enterprise and small business customers that want to 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.
The portfolio of supported devices is expanding, said the company, and will now support cameras from Bosch, Euklis and Mobotix, in addition to existing support for hundreds of other models.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
