Barco CMS

The Barco CMS plugin integrates the Barco Control Room Management Suite (CMS) with Security Center.

You can use the plugin to do the following:
  • Connect to a Barco CMS server to control and modify a Barco display (video wall) using the Barco CMS task in Security Desk. Changes are automatically shown to other users monitoring that display.
  • Drag and drop live video sources and camera sequences from Security Center to a Perspective or a display.
  • Add and remove Perspectives from a display.
  • Create new Perspectives and modify existing ones.
  • Modify the grid layout of sources (camera or camera sequence) in a Perspective and in a display.
  • Lock Perspectives so they cannot be modified.
  • Block and unblock cameras.
  • Configure users to manage specific displays.
  • Configure user privileges so that certain users can only perform specific actions, such as locking a Perspective.
  • Add, modify, and delete Decorators on sources.
  • Add, modify, and delete decorator templates.
  • Support failover.
  • Report configuration changes performed by users through the Barco CMS task.
NOTE: In order to transmit video streams to a Barco display, a multicast network is required.

The multicast stream is sent to the Barco CMS server directly from the encoder, from the Archiver, or the Redirector depending on the configuration.
