BCDVideo Servers Improve Archiving Performance for Genetec

BCDVideo MayflexMarkSimmonsDecember 2014, Mayflex, the cabling infrastructure, networking and electronic security solutions distributor, is a distributor for the BCDVideo family who has recently received great feedback about their BCD380V8 Server from Genetec, a premier video management software (VMS) company.

The Genetec product teams were able to increase the archiving performance of their Security Center Omnicast software with selected BCDVideo servers. 

A spokesperson for Genetec said ‘We were very impressed with the test results of this enterprise-class platform, with which we have achieved a total throughput of 700Mbps.  The server is certified to support up to 500 cameras and/or 500Mpbs in continuous recording, and provide an additional 200Mbps dedicated for video redirection.’

Jeff Burgess, President of BCDVideo commented ‘Our company entered into a partnership with Genetec, to offer turnkey appliance solutions for IP video surveillance applications. Our companies share a common vision that innovation is instrumental in continuing to provide our mutual customers with reliable, high-performance, and scalable solutions. For quite some time, 300Mbps has been an industry standard for throughput. This equates to up to 300 cameras per video recorder, depending on the particular camera criteria. The BCDVideo BCD380V8 server archives up to 500Mbs and/or 500 cameras.’

Mark Simmons, Sales Director of Mayflex commented, “It’s great to see that the BCDVideo is pushing the boundaries on what is possible.  We launched our partnership back in September and we are already starting to see a great deal of interest, particularly from those customers that sell Milestone and AXIS solutions which are already integrated into the BCDVideo servers.’
