Milestone Systems just released their latest product, XProtect 2022 R1. This video management software is packed with features and improvements that are sure to make it a favorite among business owners and security professionals alike.

Here are the features you need to know about this exciting new release:

XProtect Management Server Failover

The Management Server Failover is the solution of choice for organizations that cannot risk their Management Server (and SQL Server when installed on the same physical server) going offline. The Management Server Failover is designed for efficiency and simple configuration. It provides synchronous real-time file replication, automatic application failover, and database mirroring. When the primary Management Server fails, operators are automatically switched to the backup server with no loss of footage or data.

Some of the benefits of using the Management Server Failover solution include:

Eliminating Downtime

The Management Server Failover solution ensures that operators can log in to the system and access live and playback video, as well as the system’s configuration, at all times.

Minimizing Disruption

The Management Server Failover solution is designed for efficiency and simple configuration. Its efficient design and simple configuration give users the ability to switch to a reliable backup Management Server seamlessly and automatically when the primary one fails.

Improving Productivity

The Management Server Failover solution provides operators with peace of mind knowing that their system is always up and running. This allows operators to focus on their jobs and be more productive.

Single Sign-On in XProtect

Single sign-on is a new feature in Milestone XProtect 2022 R1 that allows you to easily and securely access all of your cameras with one login. Users will now no longer need to keep track of different sets of credentials, and administrators can quickly assign and revoke login privileges based on users authorized in the IAM system. Single sign-on simplifies the login process and makes it more user-friendly with the Open ID Connect (OIDC) protocol for authentication. This provides a more secure login process and helps to prevent unauthorized access to the system. This results in less manual work, stronger authentication, and a smooth user experience.

Value boost for XProtect Express+ and XProtect Professional+

With Milestone XProtect Express+ and XProtect Professional+, customers can enjoy better viewing and streaming and reduced server load with multi-live streaming, adaptive streaming, and direct streaming. XProtect Professional+ customers can now take advantage of viewing multiple live streams from the same camera simultaneously. This is ideal for deployments with remote site viewing stations that have different bandwidth and resolution requirements. With XProtect Adaptive streaming, viewers can automatically receive lower resolution streams when higher resolution is unnecessary, resulting in a reduced load on the server. Lastly, with XProtect Direct streaming, operators can stream video directly from cameras without going through the management server. Use this for low-bandwidth connections or for situations where the management server is unavailable.
