Simultaneous Release of New Product Versions, Add-ons and Multiple Clients
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Sept. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Milestone Systems, the global
leader in open platform IP video management software (VMS), gives users
the power of choice with the release of five new product versions:
XProtect® Enterprise 8.1, XProtect® Professional 8.1, XProtect® Express 1.1, XProtect® Essential 2.1 and XProtect® Go 2.1. For all of these video management offerings, users may choose
to operate the surveillance using any combination of three interface
clients: XProtect® Smart Client 7, XProtect® Mobile 2 and the all-new XProtect® Web Client.
As a comprehensive tool for surveillance operations, Milestone XProtect® VMS is based on an open platform that allows customers the widest
choice in hardware components and unlimited options to add third-party
integrations for greater efficiency and performance over time. All new
versions of XProtect VMS, including the recently released XProtect® Corporate 5, can be accessed through the three different clients,
giving users the ability to use the client that is most convenient
depending on the situation.
Released earlier this year, XProtect Smart Client 7 is a daily operator
interface with the most comprehensive features for viewing, searching,
sharing and managing Milestone surveillance solutions. XProtect Mobile
2 provides extended surveillance access through mobile devices, with
support for Video Push, an innovative add-on feature that turns a
mobile device into an evidence collector to push live video from the
camera of a smartphone or tablet directly into XProtect for viewing,
recording or sharing. Users can also control outputs, such as opening
and closing doors or switching on lights, and dynamically respond to
incidents, even when not at the site.
The brand-new Milestone XProtect Web Client is a streamlined web-based
interface for viewing, playing back and sharing video. Instant access
to the most common functions simplifies operation and requires no
training with its touch-enabled design that speeds up and optimizes
surveillance tasks. XProtect Web Client supports the majority of
browsers and operating systems on the market (Mac, Windows or Linux)
and requires no additional software installation on the client computer
in order to monitor surveillance from any Internet-enabled device.
Both XProtect Web Client and XProtect Mobile have HTTPS encryption for
secure communication, and the server architecture optimizes network
usage: the data streams are robust and adaptable to changing bandwidth
"With Milestone's innovative developments, customers have the power to
choose the client that best fits each situation," states Christian
Bohn, VP Marketing and Product Management at Milestone Systems. "The
entire XProtect family enables surveillance with extremely flexible,
scalable and efficient video management - whether the needs are large
or small, complex or simple, on-site, remote or on-the-go."
In addition to the five new XProtect VMS product versions, Milestone is
also releasing the following free add-on product version and two new
XProtect Screen Recorder 1.1 enables XProtect VMS to capture screen
recordings of any Windows-based PC or point-of-sale terminal. The new
version includes improved performance, the ability to switch between
user accounts and capture of the secondary screen only.
