Milestone Systems Unveil Device Pack 10.0a Support For Its MOBOTIX MOVE Camera Line

Milestone Systems, globally-renowned open platform company in networked VMS, released its Device Pack 10.0a in October this year and now supports the MOBOTIX MOVE camera series. MOBOTIX MOVE is an independent product line providing customers everything from a single source. “MOVE” stands for the use of mechanically moving parts in the cameras, meaning that MOBOTIX have parted with their previous product policy of only offering decentralized video systems on the market. The MOBOTIX MOVE product line is the first motorized devices and first ONVIF-based camera line from MOBOTIX. “We’re glad to be supporting the first ONVIF compliant products introduced by MOBOTIX as we believe this will enable us a faster release to market going forward,” said VP (Products), Jesper Just Jensen, Milestone Systems. Device Pack 10.0a With the Device Pack 10.0a, Milestone Systems also supports new firmware for MOBOTIX’ Mx6 camera series With the Device Pack 10.0a, Milestone Systems also supports new firmware for MOBOTIX’ Mx6 camera series. Mx6 cameras use a powerful CPU that delivers up to 34 frames per second in full HD. This allows for even better capture of quick movements. The camera line has more capacity for software applications such as 3D motion analysis and license plate capture in the camera. "Thanks to our market opening strategy, Milestone Systems is today one of the largest technology partners of MOBOTIX AG. Due to the growing global demand for our cyber-secure premium cameras, we are very pleased to announce the release of the Device Pack 10.0a, which now enables the integration of the entire MOBOTIX camera world into the Milestone VMS: our Mx6 IoT series as well as the latest MOVE cameras,” says Philipp Helmes, MOBOTIX Product Manager for Integration Solutions. IP-Based Physical Security Solutions Milestone Systems now supports more than 7,000 devices, and 40% of Milestone Systems’ drivers are now integrated through ONVIF, an open industry forum that provides and promotes standardized inter-faces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products.

The Boring Labs’ Boring Toolbox Reduces The Time Spent On Managing Milestone XProtect VMS By Up To 97 Percent

The Boring Labs announces its Boring Toolbox, a series of functional tools that help enterprises and integrators more efficiently manage medium-to-large distributed video surveillance/security networks using Milestone XProtect Express+, XProtect Professional+, XProtect Expert and XProtect Corporate. Initial tools include hardware/device name, password and device-group management that reduce the time spent on these manual functions by up to 97%. “While working as a leading Milestone integrator, we found that our customers regularly ignored cybersecurity compliance recommendations for passwords because of XProtect’s inability to change passwords in bulk. Tasks such as camera grouping were arduous and manual and could take system administrators hours or days to complete,” said Ronen Isaac, CEO of The Boring Lab. “We’ve created The Boring Toolbox to make managing Milestone XProtect installations easier and less boring.” Allows bulk camera password changes in Milestone to comply with modern IT cybersecurity policies Improving Application Speed The Boring Lab’s newly developed application programming interface (API) is optimized to work with the Milestone software development kit (SDK) to improve application speed and user experience for greater performance and flexibility. Initial functions include: Password Management: Allows bulk camera password changes in Milestone to comply with modern IT cybersecurity policies—showing a reduction from 67 hours of labor for a thousand camera system down to just 20 minutes and 10 clicks. Passwords can also be simultaneously synchronized to Axis cameras, speakers and other devices. Device Group Management: Allows for the automatic grouping of cameras based on models, firmware or recording server storage configuration. Trials show that The Boring Toolbox reduces task time by 97%. Hardware & Device Name Management: Renames hardware and devices in bulk—potentially reducing task time by over 90%. Reporting Function: Quickly exports filterable Excel spreadsheets with information such as point-in-time camera snap shots, recording server hardware type, network information and video stream for at-a-glance system audits that will ensure system compliance to customer or company standards. Managing Medium-To-Large XProtect Systems “The Boring Toolbox is a really exciting verified Milestone Technology Partner product that fine-tunes the operational side of managing medium-to-large XProtect systems,” said Jeremy Scott, Strategic Alliances Program Manager - Americas, Milestone Systems. “With The Boring Toolbox, our customers and system integrators can see an exponential decrease in time spent on management functions. We look forward to seeing more features added by the team at The Boring Lab.”
