Westminster Bridge and Houses of Parliament, London

A TEAM of elite British Army SAS soldiers will be permanently based in London ready to respond to terror attacks, according to unconfirmed reports from the UK. Yesterday, Khalid Masood’s actions were described as a terrorist attack by Scotland Yard’s Counter-Terrorism Command.

The SAS team will be positioned in a secret location ready to respond to a terrorist event if required, according to a report from the Daily Star, a report the Ministry of Defence has refused to deny.

The announcement comes after so-called rings of steel were installed at tourist sites around London, including the Houses of Parliament, the Mall, Green Park and Constitution Hill. These steel gateways are small enough for people or cyclists to navigate but too narrow for cars.

Milestone Releases XProtect 2017 R1

Milestone XProtect
Milestone XProtect

MILESTONE Systems has released XProtect 2017 R1, the first of 3 VMS product releases every year, in addition to bi-monthly device pack releases supporting third-party devices. 

This frequent release schedule will ensure Milestone’s rapid response to market and Milestone community needs. XProtect offers a recording server performance of 3.1 Gigabit/S. This high-performance level enables Milestone community partners to offer large solutions using a reduced number of servers, or even smaller servers. 

The processor-intensive task of decoding (rendering) video is offloaded to the dedicated graphics system (GPU) inside the processer, leaving the main processor free to take on other tasks. The GPU is optimized to handle computer graphics and video, meaning these tasks will be greatly accelerated. Using the technology in servers can save even more expensive computer muscle.
