- Milestone XProtect® VMS platform
- Network cameras from Axis, Panasonic, IQeye and DW®
- HP servers from BCDVideo
- Implementation by Diamond Partner Stone Security
- Flexible software design to further expand the system
The 1000+ camera system as of 2015 operated with nine HP servers (eight for recording and one for management). With this system in place, UTA could expand to 2,000 cameras or more.
The significant improvement in video quality made it easier to monitor and investigate any adverse events. The system function called Evidence Lock allows extension of the retention time for video recordings from selected cameras. And the encrypted video footage has authenticated time stamps, which is useful when exporting video to be presented in court.
UTA equipped its system with monitoring alarms in 19 locations, mostly in remote buildings that require navigating through difficult terrain. The Milestone VMS lets staff check the alarm by accessing the video remotely, saving time and money.
The system has also been used to prevent serious incidents. When a driver failed to report his truck stalled on a train track, the incident was observed in the VMS by a UTA technician who notified rail authorities. In that instance, Milestone helped avert a serious and potentially life-threatening accident.
