The Convergence to Pixels (C2P) Integration Framework collects metadata from IP devices and send the metadata to DW Spectrum® IPVMS. The metadata is then synchronized with the surveillance footage stored in DW Spectrum and is indexed where it can be searched through the C2P Hypermedia Search Engine. All search results (text alerts, event notifications, etc.) are hyperlinked to the DW Spectrum archive for the specific event.
The C2P Integration Framework seamlessly integrates as a web page in the DW Spectrum desktop client. Users can simply add it to a layout and connect with the instance of C2P.
Some IP-enabled devices that can integrate with C2P and DW Spectrum:
The C2P base software must be installed on the same server as DW Spectrum. Additionally, the local C2P proxy software will need to be installed on the specific IP device that will be integrated with DW Spectrum. Configure C2P on each server through the C2P interface.
**NOTE: Please read the C2P User Manual for detailed instructions. Additionally, the configuration will vary if DW Spectrum and C2P are not installed on the same server.
**NOTE: Currently, C2P is only supported with the Windows OS. Please check with C2P for the supported versions.
The format for the camera URL is:
**NOTE: The “x” is representative of a unique number, ranging from 1~25 for each virtual camera. No two virtual cameras should have the same number assigned. For example, using push port#1 might look like “http://192.168.1.16:89/pushport1”.
When creating the C2P Web Page in the DW Spectrum Client program, be sure to check the box “This web page is for C2P integration” when adding the C2P cloud instance URL.
**NOTE: The default username/password to log in to the cloud instance is admin/Password1.
