Rasilient Systems has been approved by Milestone Systems to join the System Builder Program. The partnership provides Rasilient the option to deliver its purpose-built video surveillance system hardware pre-installed with XProtect video management software (VMS) for installations with 100 or more cameras. The program enables hardware manufacturers like Rasilient to ship their server and storage solutions preloaded with the XProtect Essential+ VMS.
The first XProtect release of 2019 extends the usability of the Smart Client and takes it outside the control room with support for both one and two-way audio in the Mobile Client. This is beneficial for on-the-go security personnel, whose tasks require them sometimes to be away from the Smart Client. One-way audio allows users to listen to audio captured by the microphone connected to the camera directly from their mobile phones using the Milestone Mobile application.
Milestone Systems has released Device Pack 10.1a for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect® video solutions. The latest Device Pack offers new firmware support for partners Axis, FLIR Systems, Hanwha Techwin, Honeywell and MOBOTIX. New features include support for SRTP (Secure Real-time Transport Protocol), a feature that ensures that camera video streams are received via secure end-to-end encrypted transportation method only by authorized clients
Milestone Systems released its Device Pack 10.0a in October and now supports the MOBOTIX MOVE camera series. MOBOTIX MOVE is an independent product line providing customers everything from a single source. “MOVE” stands for the use of mechanically moving parts in the cameras, meaning that MOBOTIX have parted with their previous product policy of only offering decentralized video systems on the market.
Milestone Systems invites coders, developers, individuals, and organizations to test their development skills within video management technology. The Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest is a unique opportunity to discover new applications and capabilities within video management, security surveillance and even beyond security; applications that can “plug in” to the XProtect® VMS product family. The winning concept can be an integration, added functionality, widget or code that extends the use of video in physical security or improves everyday life.
