Milestone Systems, the provider of open platform networked video management Systems, releases Device Pack 9.9 for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect video solutions. The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates for XProtect VMS to support new hardware. 209 new devices have been added to this release, bringing the total of supported devices to more than 7,500.
Milestone works closely with device manufacturers in the Milestone community to achieve optimal interaction between their devices and XProtect VMS. The same rigorous testing applies to driver standards like ONVIF - a priority for Milestone.
Authentication of devices
Automated retrieval of recordings from devices with edge storage is another new featureThis Device Pack has a particular focus on cybersecurity for ONVIF. Support has been added for more types of security certificates. This enables better authentication of devices.
Automated retrieval of recordings from devices with edge storage is another new feature, primarily aimed at body worn cameras. When a body worn camera is docked, XProtect can detect it and download high-quality video recordings from the device’s internal storage.
Enhanced security mechanism
Before ONVIF-supported devices are listed in the supported hardware list, they have been tested to ensure 100% functionality with the XProtect open platform technology. This enables the Milestone community to pick the best devices for their end-customers, from the market’s broadest selection. They can be assured of the functionality of any supported device.
We have added support for SRTP to Bosch cameras, with an enhanced security mechanismWe have added support for SRTP to Bosch cameras. Secure Real-Time Protocol (Secure RTP or SRTP) is an extension of the RTP protocol, with an enhanced security mechanism. It provides encryption, authentication and integrity verification of data and messages passed through the RTP-based communication protocol.
Intelligent Axis cameras
We have increased XProtect support for intelligent Axis cameras: we have expanded event-detection in selected camera models, enabling users to use a wider range of events in XProtect. Extended support for Axis Camera Application Platform has also been enabled in XProtect 2018 R3, Milestone’s last Product Update this year.
Several models of Hanwha X-Lite cameras and encoders are now fully supported. The efficient H265 video compression has been added to the support of Soliton body worn cameras.
