COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 10 January 2006

Milestone Systems, the market leader for open platform IP video surveillance software, has released XProtect Professional version 4.6, delivered with the full Remote Client for remotely managing and viewing live or recorded images from 16 video channels simultaneously. PDA support is also now available for this product.

XProtect Professional is an advanced, full-feature software product from Milestone Systems, designed for managing IP video surveillance installations with 1-36 cameras. The newest version 4.6 offers many additional features, and is delivered to customers with the full channel capability of the popular Remote Client for an unlimited number of users. XProtect Professional 4.6 also supports the option to add XProtect PDA Client for mobile access to the surveillance system.

XProtect Remote Client can run from the system server or from a user’s local computer. It provides remote viewing of live or recorded images, including imported HTML maps for good premise overviews. Full support for MPEG4 and MJPEG provides remote viewing of both video types onscreen at the same time. Remote PTZ control includes point-and-click, zoom to marked rectangle, and IPIX quad views.

With XProtect Professional version 4.6, groups and views are server-based so users can access their pre-defined views even when not at their own workstation; views can be private for individual user needs or shared for all users to see. The system provides audit logs of user actions and log files that can be verified for integrity. The Viewer application can now be exported along with the database images for easier viewing when sharing evidence with others, and printed reports can include useful free text comments.

"XProtect Professional version 4.6 offers mid-size security implementations a very flexible and comprehensive set of tools for managing IP video surveillance with a future-proof open platform," states Lars Thinggaard, CEO at Milestone Systems. "All of our XProtect solutions are independent which means freedom of choice in the network hardware used: we currently support over 140 models of cameras from more than 25 manufacturers."

XProtect Professional is sold by more than 170 Authorized Milestone partners around the world.
