Milestone supports ultra low light camera

Copenhagen, Denmark

The latest device pack 9.5 for Milestone Xprotect video management software (VMS) helps the Milestone users create solutions with support for the Canon ME20F low-light HD camera, ONVIF profile G edge storage certification and H.265 video compression.

Partners in the Milestone community now have the advantage of support for the Canon ME20F network camera. This camera can produce full HD video, needing no more illumination than the stars on a moonless night. The sensor’s sensitivity is 4,000,000 ISO: It is 4,000 times more sensitive than a smartphone camera.

The NE20F has the same size sensors as professional digital cinema cameras and can use the whole series of Canon professional camera optics, from super fish eye optics to long ranging zooms.

This makes it eligible for use in solutions where additional lighting cannot be used, for instance when monitoring endangered species in nature parks.

Certification of ONVIF profile G support helps to ease the use of edge storage.  ONVIF Profile G was created to further refine the interoperability between live video and video storage. It covers cameras, encoders and network video recorder (NVR) devices, as well as client systems such as video management systems, building management systems and physical security information management (PSIM) systems.

Profile G also includes support for receiving audio and metadata stream, if the client supports these features. With certified Profile G support in Xprotect, Milestone partners now have even greater possibilities to design solutions with body-worn cameras, embedded cameras in vehicles or cameras in low bandwidth environments.

In this new device pack, Milestone has also extended support for H.265 video compression, utilising the power of true open platform technology to rapidly implement hardware acceleration. The use if this efficient video compression technology can reduce bandwidth needs, save storage space and enable wider deployment of 4K network cameras. The latest H.265 camera supported by Milestone is the new Axis M2026-LE Mk II.
