Dear IPVM members, at the moment we have Genetec VMS and existing Avigilon ONVIF cameras on site. We have some available channels in Genetec and customer wanted to connect Avigilon cameras to have them in system.
But it wasn't possible to do since Genetec doesn't allow to connect it as Avigilon and as ONVIF. We contacted Genetec and they told that Avigilon is a straight competitor and they don't want to have Avigilon cameras connected in Genetec.
For Genetec it's a polytic but we have to fulfill customer's needs. Customer can't replace cameras because it's state organization and they have these cameras on a balance. Design organization expected to have ONVIF cameras connected in Genetec because it's very professional and well-known software. But in the reality - Genetec doesn't want to do the integration.
Actually Genetec supports Bosch, March Networks, Canon that also have their VMS and are direct Genetec competitors. Don't understand their point of view in this matter.
May be somebody has an experience how to modify Genetec (as it was before with Exacq - http://ipvm.com/updates/2409) to have the same?
Thank you for your experience and assistance!
