Smart Wall / Corporate 3.0 ExaminedBy: John Honovich, Published on Nov 05, 2009
Milestone has posted a video from their ASIS demonstration [link no longer available] of Xprotect Corporate 3.0 and the integration of Smart Wall.
The video starts with a brief introductory overview of Xprotect Corporate's map functionality. It contains the standard click and view camera icons overlayed on an overview building image - common for command and control environments. One uncommon feature is the mapping of areas for individual PTZ pre-sets, making it easier to click and automatically re-position PTZ cameras to an area of interest.
Next, they demonstrate Smart Wall as a dynamic addon to the map functionality of Xprotect Corporate that serves as a software video switch. The Smart Client GUI is integrated to the Xprotect map window. Via the Smart Client, an end user can manage multiple video channels by either manually assigning it to an area in the Smart Client GUI. Also, the end user may program rule set layout presets for automatic video switching based on event triggers.
Other Smart Wall features mentioned were:
- Integration with video analytics to video switching upon events
- Ability to manage multiple video walls
- Pushing video walls to other operators
- User rights management
- Hardware independent
