Milestone Systems has released Device Pack 9.9 for partners and customers using Milestone XProtect® video solutions. The bi-monthly device packs contain software updates for XProtect VMS to support new hardware. 209 new devices have been added to this release, bringing the total of supported devices to more than 7,500.
Enhanced support for the ONVIF industry standard
Milestone works closely with device manufacturers in the Milestone community to achieve optimal interaction between their devices and XProtect VMS. The same rigorous testing applies to driver standards like ONVIF – a priority for Milestone.
This Device Pack has a particular focus on cybersecurity for ONVIF. Support has been added for more types of security certificates. This enables better authentication of devices.
Automated retrieval of recordings from devices with edge storage is another new feature, primarily aimed at body worn cameras. When a body worn camera is docked, XProtect can detect it and download high-quality video recordings from the device’s internal storage.
Before ONVIF-supported devices are listed in the supported hardware list on milestonesys.com, they have been Device Pack 9.9 Milestone Systems Steps up Device Support tested to ensure 100% functionality with the XProtect open platform technology. This enables the Milestone community to pick the best devices for their end-customers, from the market’s broadest selection. They can be assured of the functionality of any supported device.
Additional cyber security on Bosch cameras
They have added support for SRTP to Bosch cameras. Secure Real-Time Protocol (Secure RTP or SRTP) is an extension of the RTP protocol, with an enhanced security mechanism. It provides encryption, authentication and integrity verification of data and messages passed through the RTP-based communication protocol.
