MILESTONE INTEGRATES TVI (EDGEVIS LIVE) WITH XPROTECT FOR VIEWING AND RECORDING
Milestone Systems has today (Aug 27, 2015) released Device Pack 8.1 for partners and customers, using XProtect monitoring solutions and featuring brand new support from Digital Barriers for TVI (EdgeVis Live).
TVI wireless video streaming, is built around a patent-protected codec which dynamically adjusts video-image resolution and quality according to the available bandwidth for transmission.
TVI thereby ensures delivery of highly resilient, secure, real-time video over cellular and other wireless networks from mobile units, such as first responders, to control rooms.
The integration of TVI wireless video streaming enables reliable distribution of video from challenging operational environments directly into XProtect VMS.
This allows the deployment of body-worn cameras, on-board vehicle cameras and highly mobile public safety video systems for enhanced operational capabilities, events and much more.
One example of use already pioneered by Digital Barriers is mobile emergency service units relaying live video directly from ambulances, together with Electro Cardiogram (ECG) and other vital signs’ data, to A&E teams, waiting in the hospital for patients to arrive.
Transmitting continuous data to the hospital, along with visual status of the patient, optimises time for initial clinical assessment, triage and preparations. This results in more accurate diagnoses and better outcomes for patients.
Colin Evans, Chief Operating Officer at Digital Barriers, said: “Milestone XProtect, together with our class-leading TVI wireless video streaming solution, means that first-responder units and others operating in the field can relay usable real-time video to central control rooms to support decision-making and operational effectiveness.
“The combined offering opens up a world of opportunities across the military, police, healthcare services, transportation, manufacturing, construction, natural resources and other sectors.”
The integration has been implemented in record time, with the first proof of concept shown at IFSEC 2015 in London this June.
The complete integration between Milestone XProtect VMS and the Digital Barriers TVI solution will be shown in the Milestone booth 3222 at ASIS in Anaheim, California from Sep 28 to Oct 1.
The Milestone-Digital Barriers integration has advantages beyond the ability to use devices on low and variable bandwidth connections.
TVI uses a very strong encryption scheme, securing the connection even if public networks are used for the video stream.
Another protection feature is the dedicated recording server set-up in XProtect: the physical location of the stored video data can be documented at all times, ensuring full compliance to data protection acts.
TVI has already been sold into more than 30 countries. This highlights the demand for infrastructure solutions with efficient use of available bandwidth.
Henrik Sydbo Hansen, Head of the Camera Partner Program at Milestone Systems, said: “This is yet another testimonial of the power of Milestone open platform technology.
“This rapid implementation of the TVI solution is a clear illustration of our continuing dedication to the broadest and most comprehensive device support in the market.
"We support such new innovations in mobile technology by offering the DB-connected cameras with a Milestone device license model similar to our encoder license setup – one license per TVI server until 2017.”
