Milestone releases XProtect Professional version 6.0

Milestone boosts XProtect Professional with advanced remote access.


COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 21 May 2007

Milestone Systems, the global market leader for open platform IP video software, announces the release of XProtect Professional version 6.0, packed with advanced features, multi-language support, and a very attractive price/performance ratio.

Built on the same solid design as the award-winning XProtect Enterprise IP video software, with high performance and a proven reputation from thousands of customer installations, XProtect Professional is released in a new generation version 6.0. Users can now access advanced video management functionality using the popular Smart Client that allows viewing of up to 64 cameras at once, smart search, timeline browsing, digital zoom, Hot Spot and carousel windows, matrix plug-in, and much more. The result is even better overview and faster response to security incidences.

More importantly, XProtect Professional 6.0 takes advantage of the powerful features of Windows operating systems: authorization and authentication provide a single point of user administration. It also runs as a Windows service, which means that the main surveillance engine can be 'locked up’ in a server room and accessed remotely – no one can steal or tamper with video evidence undetected.

"XProtect Professional 6.0 is one of the best offers available on the market for customers requiring a robust, full-blown surveillance system on a single server. It is packed with high-end features in the powerful Smart Client interface that includes multi-window support, smart search and digital zoom – great for seeing all the details. To top it all off, the price is very attractive," says Kim Macallan, Head of Product Management at Milestone Systems.

XProtect Professional 6.0 is available with multiple language support in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Danish and Japanese. This applies to both the Administrator, Smart Client and Remote Client interfaces, as well as a software manual.

The independent, open platform of Milestone IP video software gives customers the widest choice in network hardware for their surveillance installations: almost 300 models from more than 30 manufacturers. This flexibility allows any mix of types or brands and means that just the right camera can be used in each situation.

Milestone Systems will be demonstrating their software solutions at the IFSEC trade show in Birmingham, UK, 21-24 May. Read more about it in the Products section of this site.
