Milestone Systems introduces the documentation portal, a convenient online portal for resellers, installers, administrators, operators and customers to access technical manuals and guides. Milestone Systems, a provider of open platform video management, released a new online Documentation Portal as part of 2020 R1. XProtect VMS and Husky Network Video Recorder manuals and guides are now available in an easily searchable online format in one convenient portal. Accessing product documentation "The Milestone documentation portal is the first step in a journey to gather documentation in one convenient location online. Our team is committed to the ongoing development of the portal and increasing the ease of use in accessing product documentation," said Jesper Just Jensen, VP Products, Milestone Systems. On the documentation portal, users can search by product or for a specific topic across all manuals and guides, removing the obstacle of looking through numerous manuals to find the right answer. Users can still download PDFs of product manuals to start or administrate XProtect solutions, but as an added feature, users can now search for information across the documentation portal, ultimately gaining better insights and overview. Mobile-enabled documentation portal When XProtect VMS is online, the 2020 R1 version will simply connect to the online documentation portal when the user presses F1 for Help. Offline systems will continue to utilise the installed help. The documentation portal reflects existing document localisations and the user's browser settings. Localised documents appear when browsing or searching along with deliverables in English, providing language options for users. The mobile-enabled documentation portal allows users to work on the go and on any device. Digitalising the manual and guide content also makes it easier to find information through the user's preferred search engine.
In the latest product update of Milestone XProtect 2019 R3 video management software, Milestone Systems introduces several new features and capabilities. These include centralised Search, a new Driver Framework, adaptive streaming and enhanced Device Password Management. With this product update, Milestone Systems continues to pursue ever higher performing software to fulfill the market’s rising demands for cost-effective video technology solutions. Centralised Search One of the main features of the 2019 R3 release is Search - a new centralised search platform in XProtect Smart Client, making it possible for users to search for everything in one place. Previously, users performed several standalone searches, depending on what data they were searching for. With the new Search tool users can search for motion, alarms, events, bookmarks and other types of data, in one single place enabling rapid and efficient video investigations. Milestone Systems provides customers with support for more than 8,000 cameras and devices Moreover, the new Search platform also smoothly embeds partner integrations and their powerful analytic capabilities via dedicated filtering options. Through specific plug-ins and devices, search criteria such as line-crossing and object-in-field will be enabled directly in the Search Tab, saving time and increasing efficiency. Milestone’s Driver Framework Milestone Systems provides customers with support for more than 8,000 cameras and devices, the widest device support in the industry. In order to allow XProtect device support to grow exponentially with the number of devices in the market, and in order to provide support for new types of devices such as IoT, Milestone Systems introduces Milestone’s Driver Framework. Milestone’s Driver Framework within the Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit (SDK) allows devices manufacturers, big or small, to develop their own drivers and provide faster device compatibility and deeper integration that goes beyond the capabilities of ONVIF. Adaptive streaming This new feature will enable users to receive lower resolution streams from the recording server when a high resolution one is not required, for example when displaying video in the smart client or smart wall in window sizes smaller than a full screen. The new Device Password Management continues XProtect’s focus on ease-of-useThis will give users smoother viewing and a better user experience, a lower total cost-of-ownership (TCO) due to less hardware needed to decode unnecessary high-resolution video and a better use of bandwidth that can then be utilised for other needs in the organisation. New Device Password Management The new Device Password Management continues XProtect’s focus on ease-of-use and enhanced cybersecurity during setup of new installations, as well as when expanding existing ones. This feature makes it possible for system administrators to manage all devices’ passwords directly from the XProtect Management Client for selected device manufacturers. In the 2019 R3 update Milestone Systems doubled the number of supported device manufacturers and added the option to schedule future password changes according to the cadence in the organisations and their password policies, making device password management fully automatic.
