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.
Panasonic has launched its next generation i-PRO Extreme surveillance technology platform, a native end-to-end H.265 system designed to maximise the performance and cost-effectiveness of video surveillance systems, whilst protecting against cyber security threats.

OPTEX has announced the global roll out of its outdoor and high-resolution indoor laser sensor RLS-2020S, complementing its next-generation REDSCAN mini sensor that features a 20 x 20m detection range.
The S-model features an enhanced microprocessor that provides more powerful sensing capabilities. In indoor environments, it can be set up to identify fast travelling objects or very small objects. This information can be relayed to a Video Management Software (VMS) to provide a quicker, more accurate response.
The sensor is PoE compliant, and can send alarms via traditional relay outputs or by using its IP based Redwall event code that is integrated with all major VMS platforms.
The more powerful processor also enables the RLS-2020S to be deployed in outdoor environments, and has a number of environmental resistance features to further minimise false alarms in all kind of weather conditions.
