Milestone XProtect Essential Camera License

Designed for small businesses, Milestone XProtect Essential provides an innovative and cost-effective video management software solution. XProtect is built to support up to 26 cameras and five simultaneous users. Using remote client software surveillance operators can access recordings locally or remotely over the Internet.

Intuitive system configuration wizards take users through the installation process, providing guides for adding cameras, configuring video and recording, adjusting motion detection and user configuration. With Sequence Explorer, users can view video image sequences in thumbnail previews, providing a visual overview of recorded video over a given time interval. For additional convenience, XProtect Essential also features an instant and independent playback function that lets users play back recorded video for one or more cameras while in live viewing or playback mode.

Milestone XProtect Essential supports a variety of video compression technologies including MPEG4 ASP, MxPEG, H.264, MJPEG, and MPEG4. The video management software comes with built-in video motion detection independent of the camera model in addition to overlay buttons. XProtect Essential can export video in various formats and is ONVIF and PSIA compliant. The Essential software package is compatible with over 800 IP cameras, encoders, and selected DVR models from over 79 different vendors making it easy to coordinate a surveillance solution.

NOTE: This product provides an additional camera license for Milestone XProtect Essential software. This is not a standalone product and must be used in conjunction with an already purchased Milestone XProtect Essential Base License.
