consolidated single-management interface provides a coherent and
efficient way to view and control an unlimited number of cameras

  • Situational awareness: The industry-new Camera Navigator and
    other innovative features provide comprehensive visual verification
    of the entire surveillance installation.
  • Scalable solution: Distributed master/slave servers support an
    unlimited number of cameras, servers, sites and users.
  • Optimized performance: Expanded viewing, recording and storage
    possibilities increase the performance of hardware.

Quick and easy to set up and manage, XProtect Enterprise
includes system configuration wizards and auto-detection of
hardware to significantly reduce the time and cost of deploying
large security installations.

“XProtect Enterprise 8 features the Camera Navigator, an
industry-exclusive innovation from Milestone,” says Lars
Gudbrandsson, Head of Product Management at Milestone Systems.
“Moving objects are easily tracked with the Camera Navigator for
consistent and comprehensive visual verification to ensure easy
object tracking in geographically complex security locations.”

XProtect Enterprise 8 provides situational awareness. Alarms are
consolidated from all security devices and systems into the
video-enabled Alarm Manager for immediate visual verification of
alarms, which decreases the number of false alarms. Interactive,
multi-layered maps provide a comprehensive overview of cameras and
layouts of an entire surveillance installation for fast detection
of trouble areas.

Daily operations are easily executed through the XProtect Smart
Client that provides instant access to live and recorded video,
with interface options in 26 languages. The new XProtect Smart
Client also comes with support for 64-bit operating systems to
enhance performance of the system.  It is delivered with the
XProtect Smart Client - Player, an intuitive new video viewer for
exported material from XProtect VMS systems.

The open architecture of XProtect together with the Milestone
Integration Platform Software Development Kit (MIP SDK) brings
endless possibilities to add functionality and create increasingly
powerful, new surveillance solutions. Milestone XProtect acts as
the core of the system, providing the widest choice in third-party
