Milestone Systems has delivered several new features and capabilities in XProtect 2020, and extended the functionality of online services, enabling its partners to implement innovative video analytics and AI applications.
With XProtect Smart Client desktop notifications for alarms, operators can receive pop-up notifications whenever an alarm is triggered, even if the Smart client is minimised. The notification can be customised to cover prioritised alarms, making these more visible to the operator. With a single click, the operator is directed to a separate window displaying the alarm details and associated video recording, enabling them to take immediate action.
XProtect 2020 offers better support for the devices integrated to the VMS through ONVIF. The camera can be configured directly from the VMS. Moreover, the device network settings (IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateways) can also be configured in the VMS for existing ONVIF-compliant devices.
With Gstreamer as the foundation for the leading players in video processing, the Video Processing Service driver enables Technology Partners to embrace industry standards. This initiative also unlocks the possibility to develop applications in Linux using industry standards.
Other new features in Milestone XProtect 2020 include a notification manager in the Customer Dashboard and an online documentation portal.
