The patented Panomera multifocal sensor cameras produced by Dallmeier have completed a seamless integration with Milestone XProtect video management software (VMS). The integration provides XProtect users with a range of new capabilities for observing and monitoring large areas and vast spatial contexts.
With Panomera, the images from up to seven detail sensors and one overview sensor are intelligently stitched within a camera system to produce one overall vision of the object space. XProtect operators can now open and organise all ‘submodules’ from the XProtect Smart Client user interface, drag and drop and zoom into any number of areas within the submodules simultaneously. Enabling the entire high-resolution image at all times provides the benefit equal to combining a powerful megapixel camera with an unlimited number of high-resolution ‘virtual’ PTZs.
The plug-in works with the XProtect Smart Client process seamlessly. It eliminates complicated, confusing switching between camera perspectives and the unnecessary search for maps of buildings and surroundings. The number of cameras needed and the number of screens that you have to observe are reduced drastically. The work of the operators is made considerably simpler.
All submodules are recorded in high resolution and zooming is also in high resolution, allowing the operator to receive details of the entire image. This feature is not possible with conventional solutions and it is beneficial when dealing with complex situations, for example, or for ensuring successful forensic analysis.
Says Thomas Dallmeier, member of the management board at Dallmeier. “With this combined solution, not only do users of Milestone XProtect reduce their overall operating costs, as fewer camera systems and less infrastructure is needed, but they also significantly improve overall security, including the documentation of incidents, since all concerned areas of the object space are monitored and recorded in high resolution.”
Available in the Milestone Marketplace, you can access the Dallmeier Panomera plug-in, open to all XProtect users.
