Milestone extends support for body worn cameras
Milestone Systems, provider of open platform in networked VMS has released Device Pack 9.1 for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect video solutions.

The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates supporting new hardware. These updates are always a priority at Milestone: supporting the widest range of devices possible is a crucial part of the company’s open platform promise. This year, Milestone reached an industry first 6,000 supported devices, with new devices constantly being added to each device pack that comes out.

Advanced support for body worn cameras from Digital Barriers

In Device Pack 9.1, support for Digital Barriers body worn cameras has been extended. XProtect can now interface to Digital Barriers Edgevis servers. These dedicated servers provide a secure, scalable video transmission platform, able to stream video live from cameras to users over any, but especially low bandwidth, wireless networks.

Thanks to the use of open platform technology, this new feature is supported by the SVQR (Scalable Video Quality Recording) functionality in Milestone VMS.

Using SVQR, a low bandwidth connection can be used to send low resolution video to a command center for real time situational awareness. When the camera is connected to a high bandwidth network, the high-quality recordings from the cameras local storage can be retrieved by XProtect 2017 advanced VMS, either by event, schedule or manually.

This means that SVQR improves evidence investigation in addition to real-time situational awareness, thus proving added value to the Milestone community.

“We have a close relationship with Milestone, and are delighted at the new possibilities this integration offers. We are happy to be in the Milestone community as this gives us the potential to extend our reach through partnerships.” Said Colin Evans, COO Digital Barriers.

H.265 ONVIF support

Milestone constantly works to extend ONVIF support. In Device Pack 9.1, support for the h.265 high efficiency streaming codec has been added. So far numerous cameras from Dahua have been tested and verified in this release, with more to come.

Milestone dedicated to ONVIF Support

Milestone works closely with device manufacturers in the Camera Partner Program (CaPP) to achieve optimal interaction between their devices and XProtect VMS. The same rigorous testing applies to driver standards like ONVIF.
