Milestone Systems Adds Support for new breed of wide-angle cameras 

The latest Device Pack from Milestone adds optimized support for 360-degree cameras in XProtect video management software. The number of supported devices now achieves more than 4,000.


COPENHAGEN – February 27, 2015.  Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has just released its bi-monthly Device Pack 7.8 for the XProtect® portfolio of products. The most significant features in this upgrade are support for a new type of hybrid cameras combining a PTZ and a 360-degree camera, and support for fisheye cameras.

An example of the new type of hybrid cameras is the Axis Q6000-E network camera. This camera offers a 360° overview provided by four 2-megapixel camera heads, and when integrated with AXIS Q60-E camera, it simultaneously offers high-detail optical zoom on areas of interest.

Using XProtect clients,  with just a single click operators can optically zoom in on details of interest with high precision while at the same time being able to maintain an overview of large areas of up to 20,000m² (215,000 sq. ft.) – about the size of four football fields.

The release of Device Pack 7.8 also marks that Milestone remains committed to supporting the broadest range of cameras and devices on the market – currently over 100 brands and more than 4,000 models. This means that nearly 1,000 devices have been added in just one year. This is the highest annual growth in output ever!

“We are dedicated to ensuring that our customers and channel partners have the broadest and most comprehensive device support in the industry,” says Christian Bohn, Milestone Systems VP Corporate Marketing & Alliances.  “Our open platform technology enables us to provide high usability and ROI for the solutions that our channel partners can offer to our mutual customers. This proves that anything possible is here – with Milestone as your platform.” 

Milestone XProtect Device Packs include optimized drivers that enable the relevant capabilities of a camera or other hardware device to be managed by XProtect software. Milestone works closely with the device manufacturers in the Camera Partner Program (CaPP) to achieve the optimal interaction between their devices and the XProtect VMS. This ensures the highest quality for a video surveillance solution, which is important for total system operability, efficiency and stability.
