Edesix, a global market leader in body worn camera (BWC) solutions, has announced its partnership agreement with Genetec Inc. (Genetec), a leading provider of open-platform, unified IP security solutions.
The integration relationship will enable Edesix BWCs, and associated VideoManager software, to integrate seamlessly with Genetec™ Security Center, which will offer streamlined wearable security management, support and storage for city wide surveillance and law enforcement.
Users of Security Center will be able to automatically view live video and audio captured on an Edesix VideoBadge BWC. Edesix’s Open API’s will also allow storage of high definition video, either in VideoManager or Security Center, for maximum flexibility and control of storage. Features currently found within the Edesix solution, such as RFID touch-assign, video encryption and evidence sharing, will be accessible through the Genetec system, allowing for effective large-scale deployment and estate management.
Richie McBride, Managing Director at Edesix, commented:
“Body Worn Video has become a key component within the security sector, providing a greater awareness and accountability of events for its users. However, we understand that a stand-alone system can be inefficient for larger security outfits, which is why we have worked closely with Genetec to integrate our Body Worn solution to Security Center.”
“With the emergence of Body Worn Cameras, end-users will need to rely on a unified, open-architecture platform to manage, analyse and archive BWC video data,” said Christian Morin, Vice President of Cloud Services at Genetec Inc. “Genetec™ Security Center offers seamless integration, encryption and management of security data with the Edesix VideoBadge, removing the multiple silos of data that the security and law enforcement sectors currently have to deal with,” added Morin.

With a 150-degree horizontal field of view, day & night recording capability and integrated pre-record function, VB-300 VideoBadges are able to record secure, unrivalled footage of incidents. Edesix will be exhibiting at IFSEC 2016 from the 21st-23rd June, on booth C1530. If you wish to arrange a demonstration of the VideoBadge, please do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
