Merit LILIN was the first manufacturer to announce production support for IP camera 'standards' - specifically ONVIF's protocol. In January 2009, Milestone announced its production support for both PSIA and ONVIF protocols, allowing for a test of production deployed system using ONVIF to connect IP cameras and VMS support.
In this test, we examine the performance of LILIN's IP2124 PTZ integrated with Milestone Enterprise 6.5F using ONVIF (and Milestone's Device Pack 4.6). This is important to help gauge the progress and usability of interoperability specifications and the expanded product options that they should bring.
Our key findings include:
- Successful ONVIF integration of LILIN and Milestone with one important configuration change and one key issue with video display
- Strong low light performance over moderate distances
- Some limitations in capabilities and performance for specific scenarios
Compare to tests of other IP PTZs: Canon VB-C60 and Cisco PVC-300.
