Hanwha Wisenet X Cameras Now Integrate With Genetec Security Center
The integration allows for the configuration of Hanwha Wisenet technology through the Genetec Security Center config tool.
H.265, also known as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), is a codec that was previously only used in the broadcast industry, however the demand for higher megapixel cameras and resolution resulted in its introduction to video surveillance.
“H.265 is an industry-leading codec that was developed for lower bandwidth video streaming while maintaining image quality,” says Ray Cooke, vice president of business development, Hanwha Techwin America. “This Genetec integration was driven by our customers’ increasing demand for high-resolution imaging formats including 4K Ultra HD.”
Hanwha’s WiseStream compression technology enhances video streams by lowering bandwidth on high resolution cameras while maintaining image quality, according to the company.
WiseStream works by using predictive bitrate control technology that knows when to decrease bitrates based on motion in the field of view.
This compression technology can be combined with H.265 and H.264 to provide more days of recording retention while decreasing network traffic, resulting in up to 75% of bandwidth savings.
Configuration of this technology is accessible via the Security Center config tool.
“Genetec Security Center 5.6 continues to provide security administrators with greater options and flexibility to protect their assets, people and facilities. The certification of Hanwha’s Wisenet X cameras adds further variety and performance options when managing throughput with today’s 4K Ultra HD cameras,” says Laurent Villeneuve, video product marketing manager, Genetec. “We are always collaborating with our trusted technology and hardware partners to advance the quality and reliability of our world-class unified IP security solutions.”
The Wisenet X series also offers 150dB WDR performance, a USB port for set-up and installation, license-free audio and video analytics, dual SD card slot and image stabilization using a gyro sensor.
