Leveraging additional capabilities within a single intuitive interface lets you seamlessly control all operations and rapidly respond to emerging situations.


  • Omnicast™ Key Features

  • Reduce Your Video Hardware Footprint 

    Cloud Archives – This hybrid cloud service enables organizations to transfer archived video recorded on-premises to the cloud, in order to easily increase their available storage capacity, without the need to invest in additional servers.

    GPU-Accelerated Decoding – Display more cameras and review video with greater fluidity from a single workstation with the ability to leverage graphics cards and embedded graphics processing units (GPU) to rapidly decode high-resolution video.

    Optimized Recording Throughput – Take advantage of a highly scalable VMS to reduce your on-site hardware, with a solution that has been tested to support up to 700Mbps of total throughput on certified appliances.

  • Video You Can Rely On

    Failover and Redundancy – Count on the availability of your video recordings and access to your cameras whenever you need them with built-in failover and redundancy mechanisms that protect against hardware failure or network interruptions.

    Health Monitoring – Receive real-time notification of system status and health-related events, and generate statistics on the health of your system through a dedicated engine to help optimize system performance.

    End-to-End Data Security and Privacy – Achieve greater security of your sensitive data with secured communications between clients, servers, and edge devices, the ability to encrypt video in transit or at rest, and exported video.

  • Innovation in Video Surveillance

  • The Omnicast system continues to drive innovation in the video surveillance market and helps organizations protect and secure their people, assets, and facilities. From scalable HD video monitoring and recording, to unification with access control, multi-site monitoring, failover and disaster recovery, Genetec unveils new technology at an unrivaled pace.

  • Think differently

    More Than Choosing the Right HD Camera

    Rather than merely looking at your immediate security concerns, you should consider how the choice of a VMS today will impact what you will be able to achieve as your security needs and video technology evolve over time. Deep integration of the latest IP cameras, readiness to support the computational needs of HD and 4K video, and adaptability to complex network topologies and new storage solutions are all important considerations when choosing a modern VMS platform.

    Achieving True Video Privacy

    Personal data privacy is top of mind and with the growing proliferation of cameras, video privacy is a topic of great debate. Encryption of communications, stronger authentication, and the protection of video should be up front and center for any public or private organization. Simple password protection is no longer enough and a better approach for video security exists today. It is one where video authorization is secure and both archived video and video in-transit is encrypted.

    Buy the Way You Want

    Historically, security system buying has been an up-front, total purchase. Although the norm, this ownership model does not always factor in the buyer’s budgeting and purchasing behavior. But, the Software as a Service “buy-as-you-go” model of cloud applications is shaking up the IT industry. Buying security software should be flexible, allowing organizations to purchase everything up-front, while having the option to purchase on a subscription for more predictable budgeting.
