EIZO’s DuraVision FDF2711W-IP (27-inch monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution) and DuraVision DX0211-IP (decoder box) IP decoding solutions allow you to connect multiple IP cameras, and offer high-performance decoder technology, custom layouts and other display options for flexible video viewing. IP decoder solutions require neither a computer nor any additional hardware to operate, which eliminates various sources of error and security risks associated with conventional configurations. Milestone XProtect is a video management software that combines various technologies for video surveillance in a highly-secure system with optimal functionality. EIZO and Milestone have developed a plug-in for flexibly controlling and configuring video walls remotely using the video management software.
The plug-in allows users to control and monitor EIZO’s IP decoder solutions directly via Milestone XProtect, including camera registration, remote device status checks, video layout adjustment and display customisations. This streamlines the installation process and user control by allowing operations to be carried out directly via the VMS. Using Milestone XProtect, operators simply drag and drop the video feed from any registered camera to the desired position and the layout is reflected on the target monitor, even if it is located remotely. Display settings and options can also be easily configured through the VMS without needing to access the monitor’s UI separately.
‘With its high-end IP solutions that are integrated in XProtect and listed in the Milestone Marketplace, EIZO has been a highly-valued partner of Milestone for many years now. We are thrilled that EIZO has developed the video wall plug-in. It has never been so easy to install a video wall with Milestone business-ready products (Milestone XProtect® Express+, Milestone XProtect® Professional+) as it is now! Thanks to DuraVision’s integrated decoder, this solution allows end users to control content via the Milestone XProtect® Smart Client on EIZO monitors or to display a video wall and use features, such as Milestone XProtect® Smart Wall. Since this works with all XProtect products, it will provide a more competitive position for our joint system integrators and at the same time create ease of use and maximum functionality for our end users. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.’
EIZO’s IP decoder solutions also support the unique functionalities of Milestone XProtect, such as event monitoring and alarms. The IP monitor or box receives a command from the VMS when a specified event occurs, such as motion detection via IP camera, and instructs the device to take a designated action, such as automatically changing the screen layout. This adds a level of enhanced awareness to operators, drawing attention to important events in real time.
The EIZO plug-in for Milestone XProtect is now available on EIZO’s website and the Milestone Marketplace.
