Milestone Systems has released Device Pack 9.3 for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect video solutions. Device Pack 9.3 prepares the Milestone community for using audio to increase safety. In addition, more than 300 cameras have received updated or new support.
The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates for XProtect video management to support new hardware. This year, Milestone reached an industry-first 6000 supported devices, with new ones constantly being added to each device pack that comes out.
In preparation for the soon-to-follow XProtect 2017 R3 version, audio support has been enhanced for selected Axis, Hanwha and Sony cameras, in addition to support for AAC (Advanced Audio Codec) in cameras. This audio compression format delivers superior quality compared to the formats traditionally used in VMS.
Using audio as an integrated part of a video surveillance system can be a valuable addition to a system’s ability to deliver operational awareness. Audio can also be used in analytics applications to alert and direct attention to incidents not covered by the system’s cameras.
Firmware has also been updated for more than 230 Axis cameras in addition to adding 16 new models. Twelve models from the new Mx6 line from Mobotix are also included in this device pack. There are updates to support for Hikvision, Hanwha and Panasonic cameras, as well. Support for the intelligent video compression technology called SNAPStream has been added for selected Arecont Vision cameras.
In addition, SmokeCatcher has been certified to be used with XProtect – documentation of the testing, results and guidance can be found in the Milestone Solution Finder. SmokeCatcher, an early warning system for smoke detection in critical environments, offers fast smoke detection in places where traditional smoke detection systems fail due to slow response or poor accuracy.
