LEESBURG, Va. – Omnilert, a provider of active shooter solutions, announced that its visual gun detection system, Omnilert Gun Detect, is now certified with the Genetec Security Center.

Genetec Security Center is an open-architecture platform that unifies IP-based video surveillance, access control, communications and analytics. Omnilert said that this integration will enable Genetec customers to incorporate its visual gun detection technology with their existing surveillance cameras in order to identify gun threats at first sight and ensure a rapid, automated response that may include notifying police, locking doors, sounding alarms, and alerting anyone in the nearby proximity.

Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), Omnilert Gun Detect works through a combination of early visual gun detection, multi-channel alerts and automated safety protocols and systems can be instantly activated by Omnilert Gun and/or Genetec Security Center through the integration to help stop active shooters, warn those in harm's way and potentially save many lives.

“The ability to quickly detect, notify and manage an active shooter crisis is critical for ensuring a successful outcome that prevents loss of life," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Omnilert. "Through this integration, Genetec customers can now have access to these capabilities, turning their existing video surveillance investment into an always-on and effective gun detection and automated response platform."

Omnilert very recently announced the release of its third-generation gun detection system that made improvements to existing software such as its AI architecture being optimized to boost performance 10X for any given GPU over its original architecture, and enabling more camera streams to be processed per server. The benefits of those enhancements include lower hardware costs for customers, high-performance processing, (55) 1080P camera streams running at 15fps on a standard NVIDIA RTX 4060, architecture efficiency, and PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) camera compatibility due to real time frame rate analysis among others.

"The integration of Omnilert Gun Detect with Security Center will help security teams respond quickly and support their actions by automating essential safety protocols in gun threat situations, all while using the existing cameras and hardware," said Mathieu Goloubiatnikov, DAP Team Lead at Genetec Inc.
