Xellip2’s integration with Milestone VMS affords “seamless control” for end users

Castel’s open protocol Xellip2 IP intercom has been integrated with Milestone’s Xprotect video management system (VMS) to offer “seamless interoperability” between systems.

The ONVIF-compatible Xellip2 features a 1200 x 800 wide-angle HD camera. Sporting a sleek and contemporary design with backlit and flushed nameplates, the Xellip2 has two output relays and two inputs for third party integration. It also features two Ethernet ports (one PoE plus an additional one for serial/bus architecture type and loopback).

Other highlights include echo and noise cancellation, a built-in induction loop for compliance with disability discrimination legislation, audio feedback and call status LEDs, power back-up, a built-in web browser and the ability to record audio and video.

The integration enables all the components of the intercom system – ie camera, microphone, speaker and button – to be monitored and controlled from the Xprotect interface.

The VMS enables users to record video via the event button or via motion detection, record audio, trigger actions via the rule engine (such as the display on a matrix or on Xprotect’s dynamic image wall), send pre-recorded messages to the intercom’s speaker, reassign an alarm and display a flashing icon in the case of detection.

“Interoperability between Castel’s intercom systems and video management systems is now a key demand from our markets, with developments in the latest Xellip2 intercom range offering the perfect answer to this challenge,” explained Atmane Bensghir, business development manager at Castel. “This integration with Milestone’s VMS puts end users firmly in control, enabling them to manage their video entry and security systems using a single interface.”

The easy integration of the Xellip 2, combined with the XProtect access module, enriches the Milestone Smartclient with an integrated intercom client. This module allows the display of a pop-up alert to pinpoint a call made from an intercom.

Milestone Access pop-up notification enables video monitoring at the relevant intercom and two-way audio communication with the intercom directly from the Milestone Smartclient, as well as the opening of a door and association of intercom information with access control data.

Hanwha Techwin launches new Wisenet WAVE VMS brand

The new Wisenet WAVE video management software (VMS) from Hanwha Techwin “makes it almost effortless” to display up to 64 HD video streams. 

The company already offers an entry level free VMS called SSM, while for sophisticated Enterprise level VMS projects, the business integrates with technology partners such as Genetec and Milestone.

For its part, Wisenet WAVE has been launched to answer the needs of projects in the middle ground with an emphasis on simplified user experience.

HanwhaTechwinWisenetWAVE

Uncomplicated and easy to use

An intuitive ‘drag and drop’ tool makes it extremely easy for operators to set up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall, with customisable layouts and sizes.

Other key features include a virtual PTZ which, with just simple clicks of a mouse, enables operators to zoom in to see close up detail of any suspicious activity, while motion detection and video analytics support can be configured to generate alerts when user-defined incidents occur.

A wide range of smart, keyword, calendar and time-slice search options facilitate rapid retrieval of recorded video.

Ultimate in flexibility

Wisenet WAVE offers a wide range of options to allow end users to choose how and where they wish to manage their video surveillance systems with minimal hardware requirements.

Desktop Wisenet WAVE is offered as software which can be installed on a user’s desktop running Windows, Linux or Apple/Mac. 24 to 64 live HD video streams can be managed on 32 and 64-bit operating systems.

Cloud A cloud-based service (which can be remotely accessed by an unlimited number of authorised users from anywhere in the world) offers a hardware free, cost saving method of taking advantage of all Wisenet WAVE functionality.

Server solutions Wisenet WAVE is available as a pre-loaded, out-of-the-box server or as software downloadable from the Hanwha Techwin website which enables operators to view up to 64 HD streams of live video. A supporting web-based application enables each Wisenet WAVE platform to be managed as a stand-alone system or as part of a larger, scalable video management solution. The application also provides an audit trail, real-time health monitoring and camera failover support, as well as reports on server health and storage status.

Mobile A mobile App affords the opportunity to remotely access the key functions of Wisenet WAVE from a smart device, in turn enabling ‘on-the-road’ users to view and respond to any incidents captured by Wisenet cameras.

While Wisenet WAVE is packed with features to make it simple and easy for users to achieve maximum advantage from their video surveillance systems, it’s likely to also be popular with system integrators looking to minimise their on-site time. With the benefit of an auto-discover feature, connected cameras and a wide range of third party IP network devices can be addressed and set up within a matter of minutes.

Zepcam now integrated with Milestone’s VMS

The state-of-the-art 4G body worn video system (BWVS) designated Zepcam that’s widely used by police forces across Europe has been integrated with Milestone’s Video Management System.

The move allows end users to monitor both fixed cameras and images generated by the BWVS through one system on a simultaneous basis.

Zepcam has also announced that it will be entering the transportation sector next year with vehicle-mounted video systems.

The Zepcam solution is distributed in the UK by Interconnective Security Products. The company’s managing director Bobby Logue explained: “At the beginning of 2011, we implemented a strategy to move Interconnective from being a ‘box shifter’ to a solutions provider that adds value to security service providers. One of our tactics was to move our product sourcing from China to Europe, engaging with manufacturers that had dedicated R&D facilities in place as well as an innovative culture. Zepcam is a fine example of the success of our strategy. We expect to reveal further success stories during 2014 from our other supply partners.”
