VMS supports more cameras with new device pack

Device Pack 8.4 has been released for Milestone XProtect Video Management System bringing the number of supported cameras to over 5000.

More camera support with latest Milestone device packMilestone Systems has released Device Pack 8.4 for those using Milestone the XProtect video management system (VMS). The Danish video surveillance company have increasing camera support at the top of the agenda and release regular device packs to support new hardware, having already reached a landmark of 5000+ supported cameras.

The 5000th camera to be supported by XProtect is the Bosch AVIOTEC device which is designed with embedded video analytics for the identification of smoke and flames. By using video analytics technology, fires can be detected earlier then with smoke detection equipment, especially in difficult environments such as open areas, tunnels and plazas etc.

The new device pack doesn’t just support additional cameras but also video recording technology such as the Dahua Network Video Recorders (NVR). This means that cameras connected to NVRs will be accessible to the Milestone VMS software, just like cameras connected to an encoder. Customers using supported NVRs now have the option of centralised control in addition to their existing ability to do local recordings on the recorder. The cameras connected to the NVR are seen by the VMS as ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum – an open standard for IP video surveillance) devices.

Milestone has always promoted driver standards like ONVIF and remains dedicated to supporting the broadest range of cameras and devices on the market. In this Device Pack, nearly 50% of all the cameras added to the Device Pack are ONVIF-based cameras.
