OPTEX, the global sensor manufacturer, announced that its award-winning REDSCAN PRO LiDAR sensors are now fully integrated with Genetec Security Center, to provide enhanced perimeter protection for the most secure sites.
OPTEX – Genetec partnership
The announcement follows a long period of engagement between the two companies, even before the launch of the latest series of OPTEX sensors, to ensure that data and algorithms could be fully integrated and interpreted by the Genetec Security platform. Center. By integrating the two technologies, a series of advanced features, exclusive to Genetec, have now been unlocked.
Genetec is the only company to leverage live X&Y coordinates, provided by LiDAR REDSCAN, to create critical area mapping and video tracking, including advanced smart features, such as automatic merging of target trajectories. This feature automatically merges unique targets detected by multiple sensors, together, to help reduce the number of events presented through the Genetec Security Center platform, to security personnel and make them more relevant.
LiDAR REDSCAN PRO and Genetec Security Center integration
The integration of the OPTEX REDSCAN PRO series into our Security Center is a game-changer for perimeter security “
David Lenot, Head of Critical Infrastructure Practice at Genetec, said: “The integration of the OPTEX REDSCAN PRO series into our security center is a game-changer for perimeter security. With video detection, tracking and verification all in one device, it’s not only more efficient and cost-effective, but customers can also expect higher levels of security and surveillance than ever before.“
Automatic target tracking and camera forwarding are also enabled, providing a full visual audit trail of events through a single interface. In addition, the integration of REDSCAN with Genetec can be used specifically in vertical mode, to accurately map areas on a virtual wall. For example, this may involve mapping each window on a building facade, or each painting on a museum wall, to allow any intrusion or alarm to be quickly located and visualized.
A strong working partnership
Tomohiro Tsuji, Managing Director of OPTEX, said “The beliefs and principles shared between OPTEX and Genetec have helped build a strong working partnership. At OPTEX, we like to work closely with our partners, to provide the best solutions.“
He adds, “We have worked closely with Genetec for several years, with a clear focus on innovation and the integration of technologies in order to provide enhanced security solutions to our customers. Our latest collaboration enables a deeper level of integration between our technologies, delivering a truly advanced, secure and agile perimeter protection solution.“
REDSCAN Pro Series
The REDSCAN Pro series, which includes two models, the RLS-3060V with a range of up to 30×60 m (approximately 100 x 200 ft) and the RLS-50100V with a range of up to 50×100 m (approximately 165 x 330 ft .), provides highly accurate detection outdoors and indoors, without any ‘gap’ or detection reliability ‘fades’ with range.
Rectangular detection patterns provide excellent coverage for virtual wall applications and for virtual plans to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs. Its innovative panoramic camera module makes it possible to verify the detection visually, by pre- and Publish– event images, as well as video stream sequences.
