Genetec the IP security product company announced a partnership with BCDVideo giving Genetec exclusive rights to resell BCDVideo servers and storage equipment. Through this agreement, Genetec channel partners and integrators now have access to all BCDVideo Nova Series servers and storage arrays, which come with Genetec’s Security Center software. According to the firms this turnkey package enables the deployment of large-scale enterprise surveillance systems while minimising resources and set-up time.
BCDVideo says that its Nova Series servers are suited for enterprise IP video surveillance applications, and large systems supporting hundreds of megapixel cameras.

We are delighted to further our collaboration with Genetec to bring their enterprise end users a combined solution based on Security Center and our Nova Series.

Now, we are able to collaborate directly with Genetec’s channel partners to build and deliver certified Genetec Security Center systems supportive of all the edge devices in its partner ecosystem, with BCDVideo’s powerful hardware, dependable storage, fast, on-board disaster recovery features, and renowned hardware support.”
