Hikvision Announces Expanded Support for Thermal and Speed Dome Cameras in Milestone XProtect® Software

March 13, 2018


Hikvision has announced expanded support for its thermal and speed dome cameras with strategic partner Milestone systems, providing better situational awareness through visual verification of alarms.

“Hikvision and Milestone have taken another important step in the direction of a very tight integration of the two product platforms. Using the well-developed Milestone SDK (MIP SDK), Hikvision has ensured optimal support for our strong portfolio of cameras. This is a very appealing value proposal for the market, both making it easy for the integrator to install and configure, and also by ensuring the best possible visual verification possibilities for the operator,” said Jens Berthelsen, partner alliance manager at Hikvision in the press release.

Hikvision’s plug-in for Milestone XProtect® software enables the operator to view ‘bounding boxes,’ which appear around objects or people of interest, in the XProtect® Smart Client, and to receive alarms from a Hikvision thermal camera or speed dome. Bounding boxes enable operators to see where an alarm is more quickly, and make it easier to verify alarms in forensic investigations.
