Hikvision reports the integration of its SMART IP camera range with XProtect VMS (Video Management Software) from Milestone Systems with the release of XProtect Device Pack 7.3.
Head of Manufacturer Alliance Program at Milestone Systems, Henrik Sydbo Hansen, said: “We are very pleased about the new possibilities for Milestone Channel Partners and customers brought to them by this announcement. The Milestone ecosystem of partners now gains full advantage from the new integration between Hikvision’s cameras and Milestone’s award-winning Open Platform Video Management Software.”
Hikvision SMART IP cameras feature Smart Imaging 3D Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), digital wide dynamic range, auto-switching infra-red cut filter (ICR) and electronic image stabilisation with three simultaneous video streams and up to 20 concurrent live-view channels. The encoding algorithm of the new Smart Codec enhances image quality by up to 30 per cent at very low bitrates, it is claimed, to minimise bandwidth and storage needs.
Keen Yao, International Marketing Director at Hikvision, said: “We are delighted with Milestone’s decision to be the first VMS manufacturer to integrate the SMART IP feature set. As the global leader in open platform IP video management software, we are proud that they have chosen to initiate their support for smart camera features with Hikvision’s SMART IP range. It sets up a win-win situation for both companies; Smart is the latest trend and we believe this integration will facilitate a revolution in the security market.”
