Product News

A new version 2016 R3 of the MIP SDK will soon be made available with the release of the 2016 R3 versions of the Milestone XProtect VMS. Below are listed some of the highlights from the coming expansion of the MIP SDK.

XProtect Access

the additions to the access control framework will enable partners with plugins for XProtect Access to handle 2-way synchronization of the state of alarms between the access control system, and the XProtect VMS. The Demo Access Control Plugin sample has been updated to support 2-way synchronization of alarm states.

The reference documentation for access control has been updated, and a new Introduction placed under 'Plugin Integration'.

Hardware accelerated decoding

The ImageViewerControl has been updated to utilize hardware accelerated video display. This control will now utilize the GPU (Intel CPU with support for Quick Sync Video, GPU enabled in BIOS). This will have the same look and feel as in the Smart Client. It is possible to disable hardware acceleration via the EnvironmentOption. The VideoViewerQuality sample has been modified to illustrate more of the options available for the ImageViewerControl.

With the new version, it is possible to create Smart Client video overlays that use WPF elements, boosting performance by utilizing graphics hardware.

As soon as the 2016 R3 VMS is released, the release note, change log and other documentation for the MIP SDK will updated.
