Genetec's Strong Edge Storage Expansion

By Ethan Ace, Published Nov 28, 2012, 07:00pm EST (Info+)

A common complaint and weakness of edge storage is that most systems only support one or two camera manufacturers. However, over the last year, Genetec has quietly but rapidly expanded their support to 9 manufacturers and over 200 models. As edge heats up to be one of the top trends in the industry, what does this mean for Genetec? Inside this note, we examine the specific manufacturers supported, how that compares to rival VMSes like Milestone and how it impacts their upcoming cloud offering.
