Genetec announced the availability of the Omnicast Video Trickling feature, which significantly enhances the flexibility of video archiving and optimizes bandwidth usage during peak and off-peak hours. The Video Trickling feature is available in version 4.7 of Genetec’s video surveillance solution, Omnicast. Video Trickling allows for recorded video on edge devices to be moved and stored by the Omnicast Archiver server for long-term archiving. With the Video Trickling feature, the operator retains complete control over which video will be transferred and when by creating rules within Omnicast. Transferring video from the edge-device can be based on three different modes including on schedule, on event or manually. The amount of video being transferred can also be controlled based on filters such as time ranges, playback requests, events, alarms, video bookmarks, and an interval when a unit is offline.
