Genetec Omnicast; Eol? Migrate To SC Or Go To RFP?

Heard that by year-end, Omnicast will be end of life in favour of Security Center (apparently they already stopped offering training)? Anyone hearing similar?

Challenge is our system has a couple dozen of federated sites with several hundred centrally monitored cameras. No intercom or access integration at this time.

Question is anyone make the switch from Omni to SC? Pros v Cons? Pitfalls or lessons learned? Anyone move away from Genetec due to functional limitations of SC?

Trying to figure whether we:

a) stay the course, go to RFP and replace in 36mths,

b) migrate within 6mths then a), or

c) move up the RFP.
