Milestone XProtect 2016 showcase

In continuation of Milestone’s ongoing commitment to maximize the business value of video management systems for partners and customers, XProtect 2016 contains many new features to ease deployment of systems and to optimize systems operations.  

The user benefits are in four areas:

  • Improved System Performance – Hardware decoding enables use of the latest 4K/UHD camera technology and improves video rendering performance. An extended system monitor gives real-time overview of system status with proactive systems management. New functions move devices between servers for seamless system expansions and flexible operations.

  • Optimized Incident Handling – Push notifications in the Milestone Mobile client enable on-the-go situational awareness. Rich Smart Wall content with alarms, images, bookmarks, interactive maps and more improves incident response time and operational focus. PTZ handling in the XProtect Smart client is optimized to further hone operator efficiency.

  • Reduced Operational Expenses - License handling has been simplified to facilitate faster and easier installation and system updates. Off-line systems now have far more elasticity in licensing without needing to be online. Smart Connect enables easy mobile user setup. The Customer Dashbord (online system monitoring) for proactive service by Milestone partners to ensure optimum operation, has been extended with the ability to document maintenance history and system performance.

  • Video Enablement - Milestone XProtect LPR and Access (Access Control Module) have been further improved. In XProtect LPR 2016 the list of countries with supported license plates has been extended, also in MEA with the inclusion of Tanzania and UAE to the list. XProtect Transact 2016 for retail solutions has been further integrated with the XProtect Smart Client to make investigation of incidents more efficient.
