Milestone XProtect software
COPENHAGEN – Milestone Systems, a supplier of IP video management software (VMS) for security applications, recently released Device Pack 7.2 for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect security solutions. Device Pack 7.2 has driver support for more than 3,000 devices, which means that Milestone has added more than 2,000 supported devices since 2011.
This speedy development has only been possible due to Milestone’s dedicated efforts to drive the uptake of open platform technology in the physical security industry.
The Milestone Device Packs include optimized drivers that enable all the relevant capabilities of a camera or other hardware device to be managed fully by the XProtect software. Milestone works closely with the device manufacturers in the Manufacturer Alliance Program to achieve the optimal interaction between their devices and the XProtect VMS. This ensures the highest quality for a video surveillance solution – very important for total system operability, efficiency and stability.
Milestone is actively promoting driver standards like ONVIF and PSIA, but these standards are not always able to keep up with the rapid development of security device hardware. Milestone steps up with dedicated, deep driver support to ensure that partners can leverage the newest device technologies in their solutions, with the freedom to choose camera models from more than 100 manufacturers in the Manufacturer Alliance Partner network.
