Oncam has recently completed the retesting and documentation of its 360-degree solutions with Milestone XProtect open-platform IP video management software (VMS). The certification guarantees the interoperability of the tested solution with Milestone XProtect VMS and ensures users gain access to a proven system designed to increase awareness and enhance intelligence.
The Oncam video plug-in dewarps a 360-degree video stream within the XProtect client. The plug-in corrects the distortions introduced by the fish-eye lens and allows the view to look normal to the user. The user is then able to navigate around the image in a similar way to a traditional pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera. The Oncam plug-in can also create a panorama image from the video stream with the correct orientation for the user.
The plug-in can be run in several ways on the XProtect Smart Client by dragging and dropping it into a view, creating a number of virtual cameras. The video stream is recorded in the Milestone XProtect Recording Server, and playback of the recorded video gives the same possibilities for dewarping the stream similar to the live-view situation.
“Oncam’s 360-degree surveillance solutions help Milestone customers gain access to comprehensive video imagery that provides a wider field of view, along with the picture clarity and full coverage area that we’ve grown to expect from Oncam’s technology,” said Henrik Sydbo Hansen, group manager, devices and integrations, Milestone Systems. “By completing the rigorous testing criteria as part of the Milestone certification process, our mutual customers gain access to a verified solution that ensures reliable performance and streamlined interoperability to ease system operation.”
“Our continued partnership with Milestone is part of our strategic effort to expand best-in-class technology options to our global customer base,” said John Haspel, director of technology programs, Oncam. “This collaboration also serves as an opportunity for us to deliver additional systems options and integrations that enable organizations to design and deploy scalable and flexible infrastructures to drive further innovation and use cases.”
Milestone certifications focus on testing a solution’s architecture, functionality, performance impact and usability. Full configuration and performance data is accessible on the Milestone Solution Finder website. To see the integration in person, visit Oncam at MIPS Americas Feb. 19-22, in Las Vegas, or visit the Milestone booth #18053 at ISC West 2018.
