EIZO Limited has announced that as part of a technical collaboration, EIZO and Milestone integrated a plugin for managing EIZO’s DuraVision IP decoding monitor and box solutions into the video management software (VMS), Milestone XProtect®.
EIZO’s IP decoding solutions, DuraVision FDF2711W-IP (27-inch monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution) and DuraVision DX0211-IP (decoding box) offer connection to multiple IP cameras, high-performance decoding technology, custom layouts, and other display options for flexible application in user environments.
They do not require a PC or other hardware to operate, effectively eliminating several potential points of failure and addressing the security concerns of a conventional setup. Milestone XProtect is video management software that brings multiple video surveillance related technologies together under a unified system for streamlined functionality in a highly secure solution. EIZO and Milestone worked together to design a plugin to provide users with a flexible solution to remotely manage the video surveillance framework within a single application.
With the plugin, users can control and monitor EIZO’s IP decoding solutions directly through Milestone XProtect, including camera registration, remote device status checks, video layout adjustment, and display customizations. This streamlines the installation process and user control by allowing operations to be carried out directly through the VMS. Using Milestone XProtect, operators simply drag and drop the video feed from any registered camera to the desired position and the layout is reflected on the target monitor, even if it is located remotely. Display settings and options can also be easily configured through the VMS without needing to access the monitor’s UI separately.
“EIZO has been a valued Milestone technology partner for quite some years now with their high-end IP displays integrated into XProtect published on the Milestone Marketplace. Today, weare really excited to see how EIZO developed the video wall plugin. Creating a videowall with Milestone Business Ready products (Milestone XProtect® Express+, Milestone XProtect® Professional+) was never this easy! This solution allows end users to control content to the EIZO screens or a video wall from the XProtect® Smart Client, with features similar to XProtect® Smart Wall, driven by the decoders built into the DuraVision solutions. Since it will work for all XProtect products, it will provide a more competitive position for our joint system integrators and at the same time it creates ease of use and maximum functionality for our end users. A win-win for everyone.”

EIZO’s IP decoding solutions also support unique functions available from Milestone XProtect, such as event monitoring and alerts. The IP monitor or box receives a command from the VMS when a specified event occurs, such as motion detection via IP camera, and instructs the device to take a designated action, such as automatically changing the screen layout. This adds a level of enhanced awareness to operators, drawing attention to important events in real time.
The EIZO plugin for Milestone XProtect is now available on EIZO’s website and the Milestone Marketplace.
