Hanwha Techwin America, a supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, announced that Hanwha’s Wisenet L series cameras are now compatible with the Genetec Stratocast cloud-based video surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS).

Through this technology partnership, customers across a range of industries can reap the benefits of a true-cloud solution whether they want to support hybrid-cloud deployments, add new cameras in remote locations, or serve the needs of small and mid-sized installations in a cost-effective way. 

Stratocast requires no software installation, port forwarding or network setup, allowing organizations to reduce installation and on-going maintenance costs. According to the company, this makes it an ideal solution for sites where IT staff, resources and budget are limited.

For enrollment, customers can scan a QR code to bring L series cameras into the Stratocast portal in one simple step instead of logging into multiple webpages.

"We are pleased that Hanwha is first to market with a Stratocast-ready QR code enrollment option," said Oktay Yildiz, product line manager for Genetec Stratocast. "At Genetec, we believe strongly in building a network of trusted partners that have our customers' cyber security best interests at heart. By extending our deep strategic partnership with Hanwha into the cloud, we are offering a solution that is cyber secure, cost-effective and easy to install."

The L series consists affordable cameras with features ideally suited for the needs of small and mid-size installations. The lineup includes fixed and varifocal lens, and bullet, dome and vandal-resistant dome cameras that are designed for both indoor and outdoor use.

"With the L series now Stratocast-ready, and other camera families soon to follow, we will be offering our joint customers a comprehensive line-up of video surveillance solutions, that satisfy the needs of projects across a wide range of market sectors, from small/medium businesses and retail chains to city-wide surveillance," said Ray Cooke, vice president of products, solutions and integrations at Hanwha Techwin America.
