Device Pack 10.7a has been released by Milestone Systems for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect video solutions. With this, XProtect video management software (VMS) now supports a total of more than 8,650 brand models, of which 1,150 new devices were added this year: https://www.milestonesys.com/press-releases/20190103-new-device-pack-7500-devices-now-supported/.
The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates for XProtect video management to operate with new hardware that comes out on the market. These updates are a priority at Milestone: supporting the widest possible range of devices is a key part of the company’s open platform promise to the Milestone Community.
New Models and New Partners
Milestone’s latest Device Pack 10.7a supports more than 80 new devices from 13 different manufacturers, including a new tech partner called Provision ISR.
Over half of the new devices are integrated using the ONVIF standard specifications. ONVIF is an open industry forum that provides and promotes standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products: https://www.onvif.org/.
Bosch Metadata, Transport Protocol and Forensic Search
This Milestone Device Pack enhances the XProtect support for metadata from Bosch devices through an additional metadata streaming mode that combines binary and ONVIF, and by implementing support for Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) for metadata streaming.
In addition, the avidly awaited Bosch Forensic Search plugin is now officially released for XProtect Corporate and XProtect Expert VMS products.
