Bosch cameras now integrate with Genetec Stratocast.

Genetec says its Stratocast cloud-based video surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS) now supports new camera models from Bosch, Mobotix and Euklis.

“A driving force behind Stratocast is to deliver a cloud-based video management system based on an open architecture with no need for a local bridge or recorders,” says Oktay Yildiz, product line manager – Stratocast, Genetec.

“We want to offer users a non-proprietary solution in the cloud so that they have the flexibility to integrate a variety of cameras to address their specific needs. With Stratocast, users can transition to a cloud-based infrastructure while potentially leveraging their existing investment in camera hardware or choosing to install new cameras from a variety of supported brands.”

Stratocast is designed to meet the needs of organizations that require a reliable and cost-effective video surveillance solution without the expenses and complexities typically associated with installing and managing on-premises surveillance systems, according to Genetec.

It offers a cloud solution for enterprise and small business customers that want to deploy video surveillance in a smaller footprint and remote locations. Stratocast also supports hybrid-Cloud deployments for users wishing to keep certain on-premise storage and infrastructure hardware while gradually transitioning everything to the cloud.
