Milestone Systems introduces of XProtect Rapid REVIEW, powered by BriefCam’s video analytics technology, which the company says will enable customers to accelerate investigations by reviewing hours of video recordings in minutes.

XProtect Rapid REVIEW is an add-on product that is integrated into Milestone’s XProtect Smart Client. The product will be available starting Oct. 27 and it is supported on all paid XProtect VMS products.

XProtect Rapid REVIEW enables cross-camera video searches and filtering, based on an expanding suite of classes, attributes, behaviours and visual layers that help investigators pinpoint people, objects, and behaviours of interest, according to Milestone. VIDEO SYNOPSIS technology gives the operator the ability to visualize objects simultaneously that appeared at different times within the video.

“XProtect Rapid REVIEW is an ideal solution for Milestone XProtect customers, looking to enhance their VMS investment with premium forensic video analytics. BriefCam is thrilled to tap into a segment of the market not currently addressed, through Milestone and its vast partner ecosystem,” said Gili Rom, VP Strategy and Alliances at BriefCam, in a statement.


“Clearly, XProtect Rapid REVIEW is an important tool for our customers to help them speed up their investigation and in general work smarter with their VMS. Bringing the best solutions for our customers is our key focus,” added Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, Chief Technology Officer, Milestone Systems. “The launch of XProtect Rapid REVIEW is a strategic partnership to bring video analytics closer to our core product and add further value to our customers’ XProtect investment.”

“We want to enable businesses and governments to harness the power of data insights, which can help them address scarcity of resources, security threats, and other challenges. Sometimes we may find that the best option is to integrate analytics in XProtect. That said, openness is built into Milestone’s DNA, XProtect remains an Open Platform VMS, and we continue to deliver the video management solutions that best solve customers’ needs through strong partnerships with our technology partners,” concluded Eilertsen.
