Taipei, Taiwan –VIVOTEK announces its further strategic cooperation with Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading provider of open-platform, unified IP security solutions on its cloud-based video-surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS) solution Stratocast™. Compatible with VIVOTEK’s enterprise-level network cameras*, Stratocast™ is designed to meet the security demands of small and midsized businesses (SMBs), which require a reliable video surveillance solution without the associated costs of on-premises storage, software updates and on-going maintenance. VIVOTEK will demonstrate the Stratocast™ VSaaS at ISC West 2016 taking place April 6th-8th at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas (Booth #12089).

In order to address an increasing number of SMB owners who are concerned about the safety of their facility and the operation cost of surveillance deployment, VIVOTEK is providing its enterprise-level cameras* for Stratocast™ customers. The cameras have been integrated to work with Stratocast™, allowing SMBs to deploy a highly affordable and convenient cloud-based video surveillance system.

“As the IP video surveillance market continues to mature and evolve, Genetec realized very early that the cloud would play a significant role in both hosting and storing security applications and content,” said Philippe Ouimette, Director of Strategic Alliances at Genetec. “Stratocast™ VSaaS offers SMB clients a hassle-free, easy-to-use, and affordable cloud-based video surveillance service, and we are delighted to partner with our camera technology partners at VIVOTEK to provide network-ready camera hardware to help end-users realize value and quality,” added Mr. Ouimette.

William Ku, Vice President, Brand Business Division, VIVOTEK said: “Partnering with Genetec means we are able to help SMB users migrate to IP video surveillance and enhance our security knowhow directly from end-users. By leveraging the Company’s expertise in cloud-based VSaaS and VIVOTEK’s enterprise-level network cameras*, SMB users can benefit from reduced total cost of ownership and focus on their core competencies.”
