VIVOTEK forged a strategic cooperation with Genetec Inc., a global unified IP security solutions provider. VIVOTEK integrated its cameras to support Stratocast, Genetec’s cloud-based video surveillance service, and upcoming support for its H.265 cameras in Genetec Security Center.

Through this strategic partnership, VIVOTEK will become the first network camera manufacturer to integrate its devices for Stratocast by leveraging the recently released Genetec Cloud Link protocol. Stratocast enables customers to rapidly deploy a reliable and easy-to-use video surveillance system that avoids the complexity of managing on-premises hardware by securely recording video in the cloud. Small- and-medium sized businesses can take advantage of VIVOTEK cameras and Stratocast to deploy a highly affordable and convenient cloud-based video surveillance system that they can access from any Internet-enabled device. VIVOTEK will also develop a Stratocast VADP package for VIVOTEK IP cameras through the Open Platform System VIVOTEK Application Development Platform to ensure a rapid and seamless system setup.

VIVOTEK is working in collaboration with Genetec to develop integration for its H.265 cameras to ensure performance and compatibility in Genetec Security Center. By adopting H.265, VIVOTEK and Genetec end-users can enjoy a lower total cost of ownership due to the high image compression rate and low storage consumption.

“We are excited that our Stratocast cloud-based video surveillance service customers will now have an expanded choice of network cameras from VIVOTEK,” said Francis Lachance, director of product management, Genetec. “In addition, our strategic alliance to develop and support the H.265 codec with VIVOTEK cameras will allow Security Center enterprise customers to benefit from this new compression format for reduced bandwidth and improved video quality,” Lachance added.
