It’s official: Datapath’s WallControl integrates with Milestone XProtect

Datapath is a verified product partner for surveillance software specialist Milestone Systems after its WallControl 10 plug-in for Milestone’s XProtect software was officially verified.

Milestone’s XProtect video management system is an open platform that brings together camera and back-end intelligence. 

XProtect users can add Datapath’s Wall Control 10 plug-in to drive a Datapath videowall controller without the need to use WallControl 10 separately. WallControl 10 is still operating on the video wall controller, but all the commands to direct content to the videowall is done using the XProtect user interface.

The WallControl 10 plugin for XProtect allows the definition of ‘zones’ on a videowall. A zone may comprise any number of screens or part of a screen. XProtect users can then select which zone or zones they wish to add content to and from. 

With Datapath’s WallControl 10 plug-in, XProtect offers Share View that takes camera feeds from within the operator “View” and displays them on the video wall within the selected zone.

It also offers Track My View that automatically sends the cameras from each operator view to the videowall. 

Extract Cameras can be used when the user view contains camera carousels, where a number of cameras can be cycled in a loop. The Extract feature allows the cameras currently ‘on top’ to be sent to the video wall. This allows an operator to see a camera of particular interest on the wall, whilst the carousel continues on their local screen.

With the WallControl 10 plug-in XProtect users are able to deploy saved layout files onto the videowall. This allows for captured video, such as a TV signal or PC to be directly displayed onto the wall alongside the video cameras. Users are also given the opportunity to save layout files through XProtect for future recall.

The WallControl 10 plug-in will recognise all cameras that are available within Milestone’s recording server and automatically populate WallControl 10 with the correct settings.
