SV-16 –Network Security Appliance

The SV-16 is powered by Genetec’s video surveillance system, Omnicast. Designed for 16 cameras or less, Genetec’s SV-16 is the best choice for use in small installations. The SV-16 is compatible with both IP and analog cameras with the use of video encoders. Thanks to Omnicast’s open architecture, the SV-16 allows customers to choose hardware that best suits their needs.

Speed Up Your Installation – With Omnicast built-in, the SV-16 can easily be integrated into any existing Omnicast installation for local recording in remote locations or for the management of distant cameras over wireless network. For small or distributed systems, the SV-16 can also operate as a stand-alone recording system, allowing customers to benefit from the advanced capabilities of Genetec’s video surveillance system.

Choose the Cameras You Want – Omnicast’s open architecture gives customers the ability to select best-of-breed hardware from a long list of manufacturers. Having the open-platform video system also means that customers can preserve existing hardware, whether IP or analog cameras. And as new hardware is released on the market, customers can take advantage of hardware integration packs to benefit from the latest technology.

Install an Energy-Efficient NVR – Weighing only 13 ounces, the SV-16 is one of the smallest network security appliances on the market. The SV-16’s compact and fanless design gives you the recording power you need with low 6W power consumption. The aluminum casing of the SV-16 ensures durability, no matter the environment.

Opt for a Future-Proof Solution – Since camera licenses are obtained on a per-camera basis, adding a new camera on the SV-16 is as simple as acquiring another license. Customers can also benefit from new releases of Omnicast with simple software upgrades. And when the system grows beyond 16 cameras, customers can trade in their licenses to move their system to traditional server-based storage.
