- High Performance Functionality Benefits Large-Scale Video Surveillance
COPENHAGEN, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - Milestone Systems, the open platform company
in IP video management software, today has released version 4.0 of
XProtect(R) Corporate. Infinitely scalable federated architecture,
extended user rights, bookmarking, multi-stage video grooming and
support for edge storage expand the capabilities for powerful, reliable
management of large-scale security system operations.
XProtect Corporate is the top-of-the-line offering in the Milestone
family of open platform IP video management software, designed for high
capacity, multi-site installations, supporting unlimited numbers of
cameras and users. This newest version 4.0 of XProtect Corporate
includes key additions:
Milestone Federated Architecture(TM) provides infinite scalability
through central management of all federated entities in a system
hierarchy on ALL levels of multiple sites - all the way out from
headquarters to subsidiaries and each of their branch offices.
Extended User Rights allow customizing user access and operation by
skill levels, tasks, or time profiles (such as guards on shifts), by
individual or as groups.
Alarm Management gives consolidated and prioritized overviews for
enhanced alarm handling with rule definitions for event triggers and
dynamic camera previews, including work instructions, escalation or
forwarding actions. These improve response times and reduce the number
of false alarms.
Bookmark incidents in both live and playback modes with
time-synchronized video previews to ease evidence creation and share
details to speed up investigations.
Multi-Stage Storage lets system administrators measurably optimize
storage in levels, defining chains and timing multiple archives to
different drives and hardware, grooming the video data by reducing the
number of frames at each stage. Check storage status in the system
dashboard at any time, including usage by camera.
Edge Storage Support is now ready: this ground-breaking technology can
be deployed as the cameras providing onboard storage become available
from the manufacturers. This will increase system reliability during
maintenance down-time or for installations with cameras on wireless,
public internet or other environments where network connections can be
temporarily lost. Edge storage is a safeguard to ensure uninterrupted
"Milestone has a great performance story to share: XProtect Corporate
4.0 brings a new chapter in database optimization. In synergy with the
hardware configuration, you can now get exponentially more video
written to the database. This means that you can reduce the overall
cost of your hardware needs because we help streamline those
requirements," states Christian Bohn, VP Marketing & Product
Development at Milestone Systems. "Milestone's unique video archiving
model has also been further developed with multi-stage grooming,
encryption and recording configuration options that significantly lower
the cost of storage."
