Regensburg (Germany), 8 September 2021 – With immediate effect, the patented Panomera® multifocal sensor cameras produced by Germany-based manufacturer Dallmeier have completed a seamless integration in the Milestone XProtect® video management software (VMS). The integration provides XProtect® users with a range of entirely new capabilities for observing and monitoring large areas and vast spatial contexts.
With Panomera®, the images from up to seven detail sensors and one overview sensor are intelligently stitched within a camera system to produce one overall vision of the object space. XProtect® operators can now open and organise all "submodules" from the XProtect® Smart Client user interface, drag and drop, zoom into any number of areas within the submodules simultaneously. Enabling the entire high-resolution image at all times provides the benefit equal to combining a powerful megapixel camera with an unlimited number of high-resolution "virtual" PTZs.
Back in time with the "virtual PTZ"
The plugin works with the XProtect® Smart Client process seamlessly. It eliminates complicated, confusing switching between camera perspectives and the unnecessary search for maps of buildings and surroundings. The number of cameras needed and the number of screens that you have to observe are reduced drastically. The work of the operators is made considerably simpler. All submodules are recorded in high resolution. The zooms are carried in extremely high resolution, allowing the operator to receiving details of the entire image. This feature is not possible with conventional solutions, and it is beneficial when dealing with complex situations, for example, or for ensuring successful forensic analysis.
"The integration of Panomera® technology in the Milestone XProtect® software is an important step for our mutual customers and partners. Creating an unlimited number of high-resolution views from the main image within the VMS and recording them is not possible in this form except with Panomera®. It is as if the user has an unlimited number of 'virtual PTZs' at his disposal, while at the same time everything is continuously recorded in high resolution," says Thomas Dallmeier, member of the management board at Dallmeier. "With this combined solution, not only do users of Milestone XProtect® reduce their overall operating costs, as fewer camera systems and less infrastructure are needed, but they also significantly improve overall security, including the documentation of incidents, since all concerned areas of the object space are monitored and recorded in high resolution."
"We are delighted with the integration of the Panomera® technology in the Milestone XProtect® video management software. As a result, our joint customers have at their disposal absolutely "state-of-the-art" technologies, from both the software and the camera perspective, for an enormous range of video security applications," says Alberto Bruschi, Manager EMEA Community Sales at Milestone Systems. "We are particularly pleased that Dallmeier and Milestone Systems are European manufacturers, whose key technologies are combined to create an efficient, scalable, and reliable solution. From the perspective of cybersecurity, the high standards for secure technologies are becoming more and more important for many of our customers."
Available on the Milestone Marketplace, you can access the Dallmeier Panomera® plugin. Open to all XProtect users, Marketplace is where you can find and compare the hardware, software, and solution service partners to build the video management solution your business needs today – and tomorrow.
Dallmeier: Turn images into assets.
With pioneering video technology from Germany.
In 1984, Founder & CEO Dieter Dallmeier founded what is now Dallmeier electronic – not in the proverbial garage, but in a garden shed in Regensburg, Germany. Today, the company, which can justifiably call itself a hidden champion for video information technology "Made in Germany", has several hundred employees worldwide, more than 250 of them at the company headquarters in the centre of Regensburg alone.
Our customers: From commercial enterprises to World Cup stadiums
Dallmeier's camera, recording, software, and analysis solutions optimise security and processes for B2B end customers in a wide range of industries in over 60 countries. The focus is on users from the casino, smart city, airports, logistics, stadiums, and industrial sectors. But also, banks, critical infrastructure facilities as well as medium-sized companies from all sectors.
Low total cost of ownership "Made in Germany"
With pioneering innovations, Dallmeier has succeeded time and again in placing itself at the forefront of technology: From the world's first digital image storage system with motion analysis in 1992, the patented "multifocal sensor technology" Panomera® with its "Mountera®" mounting system, to the latest Domera® camera family, which allows up to 300 camera variants with only 18 components. These and many other innovations provide real, tangible customer benefits. And with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and a high Return on Investment (ROI) they can easily compete with systems produced and supplied from low-wage countries.
Cybersecurity, data protection and ethical responsibility through maximum vertical integration
With 100% "Made in Germany", we also guarantee our customers the highest standards in data protection, cybersecurity, and ethical responsibility. With high quality and short supply chains, we also ensure – almost incidentally – sustainability and environmental protection. From our prestigious headquarters in the centre of Regensburg, Dallmeier not only carries out its own research and development but also the complete manufacturing process – from component to product to solution.
