Castel Xellip 2 integrates with Wavestore VMS to offer “seamless control” for practising end users

End users of the Wavestore video management system (VMS) can now benefit from its integration with video entry systems from Castel. The VMS has been integrated with Castel’s open protocol Xellip 2 IP video intercom system to provide risk and security-focused professionals with seamless control and management of their systems.

The ONVIF-compatible Xellip 2 features a new wide-angle HD camera with 1200 x 800 resolution. Offering a sleek, contemporary design with backlit and flushed nameplates, the Xellip 2 has two output relays and two inputs for third party integration, as well as two Ethernet ports (1x Power over Ethernet and an additional one for serial/bus architecture type and loopback).

Other highlights include echo and noise cancellation, a built-in induction loop for compliance with anti-disability discrimination legislation, audio feedback and call status LEDs, power back-up, a built-in web browser and the ability to record audio and video.

“This integration with Wavestore’s VMS puts end users in the driving seat, enabling them to control and manage their video entry and other security systems using a single interface,” enthused Atmane Bensghir, business development manager at Castel. “Using ONVIF-compatible cameras and open protocols, we are able – together with Wavestore – to offer users a seamless experience and intuitive control.”

James Smith, managing director of Wavestore, added: “Innovation is at the core of what we do and we’re pleased to work closely with technology partners such as Castel to help end users unlock the potential of their integrated security solutions. Our VMS is equipped with a vast number of innovative features, many of which are unique to us and deliver real-world advantages to our customers.”

Smith concluded: “Wavestore is easy to operate and, by combining video and audio as well as metadata from third party solution providers such as Castel, we’re able to assist operators to respond rapidly to incidents as they happen, or through forensic examination after the fact using our search and review functionality.”
