Genetec Expands Appliance Offering Through New Partnership with BCDVideo
Genetec™, a provider of unified IP security solutions, announced a strategic partnership with BCDVideo, giving Genetec exclusive rights to resell BCDVideo servers and storage equipment. Through this agreement, Genetec channel partners and integrators now have access to all BCDVideo Nova Series servers and storage arrays, which come pre-loaded with Genetec's Security Center software. This turnkey package enables the efficient deployment of large-scale enterprise surveillance systems while minimizing resources and setup time.
BCDVideo Nova Series servers are built using high-performance components, making them appropriate for enterprise IP video surveillance applications and large systems supporting hundreds of megapixel cameras. These network appliances come with pre-verified hardware configurations specifically designed for Genetec Security Center and can be deployed as a unified security system or as a standalone platform for video, access control, license plate recognition. The open architecture of Genetec Security Center allows customers to select their preferred cameras, door controllers and edge device hardware from a wide range of industry-leading manufacturers.
“We are delighted to further our collaboration with Genetec to bring their enterprise end users a combined solution based on Security Center and our Nova Series. We have always prided ourselves on our ‘white-glove’ approach to specifying and designing systems for the unique needs of a system integrator,” said Jeff Burgess, president at BCDVideo.
Available in multiple rack-mountable configurations (1U, 2U and 5U) and tower form factors, the Nova Series provides customers trusted and reliable enterprise-level servers that include a standard 5-year on-site “bumper-to-bumper” warranty, RAID storage configuration options, and embedded SMART technology modules to minimize downtime and troubleshooting. As HP’s global OEM Partner for IP Video Security, BCDVideo provides highly reliable server solutions that are backed by a 24/7 support network.
“We are pleased to deepen our relationship with BCDVideo,” said Michel Chalouhi, vice president, North American Sales at Genetec. “The Nova Series combined with Genetec’s Security Center, offers highly-scalable, pre-configured hardware options for our customers.”
