Milestone Systems, the open platform company in networked video management software (VMS), has released Device Pack 9.6a for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect video solutions. The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates for XProtect video management to support new hardware. This release is the first to support modular device packs, minimising the download for most users.

Enhanced user experience 

AXIS Optimizer for Milestone XProtect is a dedicated suite of plugins and features for the Milestone Smart Client that streamline the usability of cameras from Axis Communications in XProtect VMS. The plug-in was showcased at this year’s global Milestone Community Events.

A special plugin provides easy management of AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector

Traditionally, system integrators or XProtect users need to manually manage the plugin management process for the range of Axis plugins related to Axis devices on their network. This new tool saves considerable time and efforts to search for, download, install and configure all relevant, required plugins for Axis devices operating with XProtect.

The management features in AXIS Optimizer include dewarping, perimeter defender, camera shaker and a new menu option giving easy access to camera commands. A special plugin provides easy management of AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector. The plugin makes it possible to access the radar device’s control interface directly from the Milestone Smart Client, making the use of this advanced device a seamless experience.

Metadata to improve situational awareness

Metadata – data about other data and audio - is just as important as the video streams from mobile and body worn camera. Audio can be used to document events outside the view of the camera, Metadata like GPS position and data from in-camera video analytics or sensors can augment the visuals from the camera. This data helps to establish improved situational awareness.
