June 2017

APAC / June 2017 131 , From the core, Genetec culture is based on innovation. As the winner of the Best IP Security Technology Provider 2017, we invited the company to provide an insight into their history and the exciting journey they have taken up to the present day. World-Class Innovators It was in 1997 that Genetec was incorporated as a software research and development company. In those days, analogue security systems were most commonly used to protect and monitor physical spaces. Users accepted the limitations inherent to analogue security systems. Genetec’s engineers had the intuition that the typical analogue or digital point-to-point telecom architecture would be short lived. More so, Genetec believed that the direction of the future was the multipoint to multipoint networked architecture. The sophisticated intelligence of software created to manage a complex network offered a major opportunity and would usher in new possibilities to customers worldwide. Thus, Genetec pioneered the first fully IP-based security system. Despite industry scepticism of this new market technology, Genetec’s team developed and perfected the solution. We were the first to offer you IP video surveillance, and have extended our expertise in IP security to access control and license plate recognition (LPR). Genetec’s security solutions are deployed throughout industries such as city-wide surveillance, education, gaming, law enforcement, parking enforcement, retail, transportation and many more. The open architecture of our solutions enables integration with one another, as well as with third- party solutions, letting customers leverage investments and lower total cost of ownership. In 2010, Genetec acquired Sipelia, a privately-held software company based in Paris, France. Sipelia offers customised consulting and engineering services. With a team of experienced engineers, Sipelia helps organisations optimise the management of information technology in all areas of business. Sipelia delivers custom-made solutions to global organisations from various industries including the physical security industry where Sipelia’s interactive map application, Plan Manager, has been successfully implemented. With this acquisition, Genetec significantly expands its customs solutions capability, and acquires one of the best applications ever built using the Omnicast SDK. Genetec Inc. is a leading innovator in IP-based security systems and has helped transform the industry by providing customers with a unified portfolio of video surveillance, access control, and automatic license plate recognition solutions. Designed to leverage the benefits of network technology, GenetecTM products are built on an open architecture, allowing customers to choose from a wide range of edge devices and third party systems, and providing unsurpassed flexibility to allow the system to evolve and grow with the needs of customers. The core of our technology is Security Center, the unified security platform from Genetec. Experts driven to unify IP- based solution For over 15 years, Genetec has led the development of world-class unified IP security solutions. We began in 1997 by pioneering the first-ever IP video management software, giving customers at the time never- seen-before system flexibility, hardware freedom and ease of system growth through a powerful, open solution that was easy to use. Today, Genetec is a global provider of IP video surveillance, access control and license plate recognition solutions unified in a single platform, called Security Center. We work with partners on six continents to help provide safer, more secure environments for small to medium-sized and enterprise-class businesses in over 80 countries.
