Oncam has 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.
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 plug-in can also create a panorama image from the video stream with the correct orientation for the user.
It 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.”
