Aggregated analytics tools

Milestone Systems has announced its Video Analytics Framework, XProtect Analytics 2.0. Part of the Milestone open platform solution, XProtect Analytics integrates video analytics tools from different manufacturers under a single interface.

Using the Milestone tools, users can rapidly search across alerts and events to easily find relevant video evidence about security incidents from multiple sources.

A combination of advanced analytic tools and optimised IP-based video technology based on the Milestone open platform, XProtect Analytics Framework enables video analytics at the edge (on camera) and at the server, minimising processing power and adding value to archived video. With XProtect Analytics users can correlate events from generic tools such as licence plate recognition, facial recognition and traditional realtime access control with alerts from video content analysis tools, such as object detection, etc. Users can build strong, accurate evidence by cross-matching events in realtime and from archived video.

Integrating video analytics with open platform video management systems gives a flexible choice of hardware and software that greatly expands the potential for video analytics and increases the value of archived video. A true open platform solution, such as the Milestone Video Analytics 2.0 Framework, simplifies system operation by integrating a wide variety of video analytics products under one easy-to-manage user interface. This gives a powerful surveillance solution with a flexible IP video management system and a central console for operating, collecting and correlating events from multiple sources.
