The global leader for IP video software demonstrates true open platform tenets as the first VMS company to support both of the new emerging industry standards for network cameras.

COPENHAGEN – 4 January 2010. Milestone Systems, the world’s leading open platform company in IP video management software, has released its Device Pack version 4.6 announcing that XProtect™ solutions support network cameras from a number of manufacturers now offering hardware that is compliant with the new industry standards from ONVIF and PSIA.

With the release of Device Pack 4.6, Milestone becomes the first VMS (Video Management Software) company to provide drivers that support standards from both ONVIF and PSIA. A number of camera manufacturers' models have been submitted to Milestone for developing the drivers and testing them: for example, the IQeye specs for the PSIA standards were successfully demonstrated in a beta version at the ASIS trade show in September. Since then, there has been continued testing for drivers available now with the following capabilities:

Video streaming codecs H.264, MPEG4, JPEG
Audio in G.711, G.726 16kbit, G.726 24kbit, G.726 32kbit, G.726 40kbit
Streaming protocols RTP over UDP, RTP over RTSP over TCP, HTTP, HTTP snapshot (JPEG)
Joystick PTZ

Video streaming codecs H.264, MPEG4, JPEG
Streaming protocols RTP over UDP, RTP over RTSP over TCP, HTTP, HTTP snapshot (JPEG)

The adoption of IP camera standards is recognized to be a significant factor for the continued growth of IP video in the security industry because it can reduce the complexity and cost of IP surveillance installations. With the availability of ONVIF and PSIA standards, the basic levels of integration required between hardware and software should make it easier to implement IP video. Hardware manufacturers, software providers and installers could then focus on other product developments and services that can add more value for customers.

Traditionally, network camera manufacturers have only provided proprietary camera interfaces. Some standards like MJPEG and H.264 exist already for compression and streaming of video data, but basic interfaces for setting video quality via frame rates, network criteria, and PTZ control of the cameras have been different and unique for each vendor’s hardware.
