Milestone System’s XProtect 2022 R2 video management.

Milestone Systems says its new XProtect Incident Manager will help users manage incidents directly in their VMS and connect video footage with such incidents as they unfold.

New features and capabilities include managing and monitoring incidents centrally, offering the Essential+ version of XProtect on AWS Marketplace starting on July 5, and improving license plate recognition to include style recognition.

XProtect Incident Manager

The new XProtect Incident Manager helps users to capture any live feed with a single click. When the incident is over, users can stop the capture and start filling in incident details. Incident types are fully configurable, allowing users to define incident types and details for reporting. Configuration options include free text, drop-downlists, dates and time fields, and several other options. Previously recorded footage can also be added to an incident to strengthen the evidence.

Milestone XProtect Essential+ on AWS

With the new release of Milestone XProtect 2022 R2, the Essential+ version of XProtect will replace the previous version in AWS Marketplace. Users will now be able to have all XProtect 2022 R2 product variants on AWS for optimized storage and transmission. The 2022 R2 version will be added to the previous version in AWS Marketplace, beginning July 5.

Improved License Plate Recognition (LPR)

Depending on the country’s plate style, Milestone says users will be able to distinguish trucks from private cars, or even police cars, limousines, trucks and buses form each other. Similarly, some countries have separate plates for gas driven or electric cars that will now be readily identified.
