The partnership between Hikvision and Milestone Systems has been strengthened recently through the complete integration of Hikvision’s IP video devices and Milestone’s XProtect video management software. As a result, Hikvision’s full range of network cameras, network speed domes, and video encoders support Milestone’s full range of XProtect VMS including XProtect Corporate, XProtect Expert, XProtect Enterprise, and others.
“With this integration we now promote the majority of Hikvision’s extensive product portfolio, which is requested from customers globally. The real focus has been on the advanced feature set on the Hikvision cameras and encoders like Edge Storage, which allows customers to implement advanced, scalable and yet cost-effective solutions,” explained Henrik Hansen, head of the Manufacturer Alliance Program (MAP) at Milestone Systems.
Milestone XProtect VMS now supports the on-board storage capabilities of Hikvision’s IP cameras. This feature ensures uninterrupted video recording in the event of a network disconnection or server failure. It offers users the ability to access the entire video stream —even in the event of a network outage. Mutual customers of Hikvision and Milestone will also benefit from other advanced features of Hikvision IP video products such as network configuration, multi-streaming, alarm, motion detection, etc., the companies described.
The partnership brings customers more versatile IP solutions, ranging from the entry-level to the high-end application sectors, namely, the new Hikvision Value Series HD network camera, a product designed for SME sectors, according to a joint announcement by Hikvision and Milestone Systems.
“With Milestone’s powerful, reliable and innovative video management software, Hikvision is able to offer our customers more enhanced IP video surveillance solutions to help grow their businesses. Hikvision will also continue to work closely with Milestone to develop further integration opportunities in the future,” said Keen Yao, international marketing director at Hikvision.
