Milestone Systems enhances video analytics with Briefcam

By Catherine Knowles, Tue 5 Oct 2021

Milestone Systems and Briefcam are bringing forensic analytics to Xprotect customers, according to a recent announcement from the companies.

With the introduction of XProtect Rapid REVIEW, Milestone’s customers will be able to speed up investigations and find what they are looking for with greater accuracy, the company states.

Powered by BriefCam’s video analytics technology, Milestone’s XProtect Rapid REVIEW is an intelligent video analytics solution that allows security operators and investigators to search through hours of video recordings and pinpoint exactly what they are looking for in minutes.

It enables accurate, 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.

The video synopsis technology gives the operator the ability to visualise objects simultaneously that appeared at different times within the video, the company states.

XProtect Rapid REVIEW is essentially an add-on product that can be integrated into Milestone's XProtect Smart Client, according to the company. Available from October 27, the product is supported on all paid XProtect VMS products.

Milestone Systems chief technology officer Bjrn Skou Eilertsen says, “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.”

Eilertsen says, “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.”

He says, “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 Milestones 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.”

BriefCam VP strategy and alliances Gili Rom says, “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.”

Milestone Systems vice president APAC Benjamin Low says, “We believe that the new capabilities that come with the XProtect Rapid REVIEW will provide best-in-class video analytics, revolutionising the video industry for the APAC region.

"Our partnership with BriefCam will continue to inspire innovation and push the boundaries for Milestones XProtect Open Platform VMS.”
