Milestone platform to include AMG-Panogenics dewarping plug-in
AMG-Panogenics, the British manufacturer of sophisticated 5 megapixel cameras, announces that their integration of PanoCam360 with Milestone’s XProtect VMS has been completed and the camera is now fully working with Milestone.
Christian Bohn, VP of Corporate Marketing & Alliances at Milestone Systems, said, “I don’t think we have ever seen such a fast integration by a manufacturer using our MIP SDK and ONVIF driver. I must credit AMG-Panogenics: the plug-in to our XProtect smart client interface with the device was done in record time. This means that the camera’s on-board dewarping facility is now fully available in the Milestone XProtect smart client.”
“PanoCam360 streams 12.5 frames per second and the on-board de-warping reduces the processing requirement back in the control room. Offering up to 14 de-warped video streams/independent camera views simultaneously alongside the full-resolution fish-eye view makes PanoCam360 the most powerful and versatile 360 degree camera range available. The camera is completely developed and manufactured in the UK and works on an open software platform, which makes it very easy to integrate. As you might expect from the global leader in open platform IP VMS, the Milestone XProtect software is the perfect partner technology for the AMG-Panogenics 360 degree camera. The Milestone integration platform SDK is a pleasure to work with and has enabled us to develop a plug-in module which adds our own dewarping technology into the Milestone XProtect smart client. We also tested the camera’s ONVIF features together with the Milestone XProtect ONVIF driver and this worked perfectly, first time.” said David Myers, CTO of AMG-Panogenics.
