Milestone Systems Releases XProtect 2023 R1 Software Update

Operator collaboration tools have been enhanced through features such as Bookmarks Sharing, Background Picture in Picture, and Native Screenshots in the Mobile Clients.

Milestone Systems, a provider of open-platform video management software (VMS), announces its XProtect 2023 R1 product update, said to improve upon the core needs of VMS users.

The 2023 R1 software update to XProtect offers improvements to the user experience, operator collaboration, and situational awareness, according to the company. The user experience now includes UX renewals in both the Smart Client and Web Client interfaces, allowing users to easily access and manage their video data.

Operator collaboration tools have been enhanced through features such as Bookmarks Sharing, Background Picture in Picture, and Native Screenshots in the Mobile Clients. These tools allow operators to easily share bookmarks and collaborate on video data analysis.

The update also offers more situational awareness capabilities with Smart Maps in the Mobile clients. This feature provides operators with a map-based overview of cameras and devices, enabling faster response times.

The Background Picture in Picture feature allows operators to monitor a particular camera while performing other tasks. Native Screenshots in the Mobile Clients provide operators with a fast and simple way to capture and share video stills, improving collaboration and communication between team members.

The software update also includes the availability of a system prerequisite check, SQL Database backups, and faster installation times. These improvements ensure the installation and setup of the XProtect VMS are more efficient, reducing the time and effort required to get the system up and running.

With XProtect 2023 R1, rules in Management Client now support the webhooks action, allowing users to create a webhook item in Management Client with the IRL from any 3rd party service, and then set up a rule in XProtect to trigger it when an event happens. With webhooks, administrators can integrate with codeless platforms such as Zapier or IFTTT, making it easier to transform events happening in XProtect to SMS messages, calls, new tickets, Team messages, or blinking lights.
