Milestone Systems upgrades IP video management software

To provide security system administrators with improvements through a new graphical user interface and a series of tools

By CBR Staff Writer

Milestone Systems, the open platform company for IP video management software, has unveiled new version 7.0 of XProtect Enterprise. The company said that with a new administration interface and tools such as system configuration wizards, automatic device discovery, and bulk maintenance options, system operators can reduce both the time and costs of managing large security installations.

Milestone Systems said that the XProtect Enterprise is an IP video management software that handles cameras, servers, users and sites. Distributed server architecture optimizes bandwidth usage, keeping video data traffic between all the elements to a minimum.

According to Milestone Systems, the new version 7.0 will provide security system administrators with improvements through an intuitive new Graphical User Interface (GUI) and a series of tools which include: system configuration wizards to set video quality, online scheduling, frame rates, storage, and archiving schedules; and automated device discovery which uses Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) and broadcast detection in addition to IP range scanning.

Other tools include: smart bulk configuration options which apply to both devices and users; export or import system and user configuration data for backups or multi-site cloning; import off-line configuration data including camera definitions; and automatic system restoration points which allows rollback to previous configurations.
