VuWall, the Montreal-based technology provider of videowall control systems and unified visualization solutions, has expanded its software feature set with a plug-in for Milestone XProtect video management software (VMS). The expansion is available as part of the newly released TRx 3.3 centralized management platform. Per VuWall, the Milestone plug-in enables control room operators to control content and manage videowalls directly from the XProtect interface. At the same time, they benefit from all of TRx’s features.
“When we introduced the Milestone XProtect plug-in four years ago, our goal was to bring a comprehensive approach to security and surveillance,” says Fadhl Al-Bayaty, vice president of product management. “This update brings all the powerful features and the latest enhancements of our TRx platform to the already-familiar Milestone software interface. Operators will find it even easier to streamline workflows and make decisions.”
Complete End-to-End Networked Solution
Working with the Milestone software interface, security operators can remotely display and control tile layouts and required content on videowalls. They achieve this through simple drag-and-drop operations. Operators also have full control over the video feeds on the videowall, whether they need to display live video camera sequences or playback streams from a video server. In addition to video content coming from Milestone cameras, the plug-in allows operators to also view feeds from other sources. This includes maps, web pages, RSS feeds and control data. Operators can display this on the wall by controlling all sources and presets. Thus, it provides a complete end-to-end networked solution.

VuWall says its TRx visualization and comprehensive videowall management platform is built on an open, interoperable architecture. The platform thus heightens the value offered by its innovative design. TRx also allows organizations to grow their video ecosystem as needs evolve. TRx enables all devices to function in the same environment with seamless compatibility. This includes users adding new videowalls and information displays or expanding their AV-over-IP network with devices from different brands. Most of all, it gives operators a central control system that keeps pace with the evolution of their AV infrastructure without reconfiguring existing settings when adding new equipment.
In addition to the VuWall plug-in, Milestone XProtect operators will appreciate the wealth of new features now available with TRx 3.3, says VuWall. This includes a new Carousel feature to rotate through a list of cameras on the videowall. This feature is ideal for security and monitoring applications, the company states.
