Detailed Product Features
XProtect Enterprise server modules
XProtect Enterprise server 2014
Management Application
• A single Management Application provides a
consolidated single point of access to XProtect
Enterprise Recording Servers
• System configuration wizards guide the user
through the process of adding cameras,
configuring video and recording, adjusting motion
detection and configuring users
• Device scanning enables the fast discovery of
camera devices using methods such as Universal
Plug and Play, broadcast and IP range scanning
• Smart bulk configuration option allows
simultaneous changes to the settings across
multiple devices in few clicks
• The adaptable application behavior guides novice
users, while expert users can optimize the
application for a more advanced use
• Export and import of system and user
configuration data enables a reliable system
operation and fast system recovery
• System cloning enables users to efficiently clone
multiple systems with the same or similar
configuration
• The import of offline configuration data enables
offline editing of configuration data, including
camera and device definitions
• Each time a configuration change is confirmed,
automatic system restore points are created
enabling an easy rollback to previously defined
system configuration points. This also enables
the cancelation of undesired configuration
changes and restoration of earlier valid
configurations
• Automatic configuration wizard helps users to
configure the system when the Management
Application starts for the first time
Recording Server
• Native 64-bit recording server provides for
optimal utilization of available hardware
resources
• Evidence Mode preserves recorded video. If no
space is available, recording stops rather than
deleting older recordings. Recordings from
deleted cameras can be viewed in the XProtect
Smart Client
• Flexible multi-site, multi-server license structure
charged per camera
• Unlimited number of installed cameras with
simultaneous recording and live view
• Recording quality depends entirely on camera
and video encoder capabilities: no software
limitation (30+ frames per second per camera)
• Cameras supporting SSDP, mDNS or ONVIF
Discovery added to the local network can
automatically be discovered, installed and
included in the default Smart Client view
• The Milestone Customer Dashboard allows
resellers to take immediate action and fix any
problems on a customer’s installation for
example: a broken camera, hard disk failure, etc.
• Dual streams from cameras can be optimized
individually on compression, resolution and frame
rate, meeting recording and live monitoring
requirements
• Bandwidth is optimized with multi-streaming by
splitting a single camera video stream to different
streams for live view and recording, therefore
they can each be optimized independently with
respect to frame rate and resolution
• Simultaneous digital multi-channel video and
audio recording and live viewing (relaying)
• Connectivity to cameras, video encoders and
selected DVRs supports MJPEG, H.263, MPEG-4
Pt. 2 Simple Profile and Advanced Simple Profile,
H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and MxPEG
• Recording technology: secure high-speed
database holding JPEG images or MPEG4 and
MxPEG streams including audio

archives possible per day
• Hourly to daily database archiving with optional
automatic move to network drive saves storage
capacity on the local server – with images still
available transparently for playback

Copy a Smart Client – Player to all hard drives
used for recording and archiving. A Smart Client
Project file is also created (when the recording
server is shut down), making it simple and easy
to access video even if the hard drive is removed
from the server
Mobile Server
• Runs as a dedicated service, allowing it to be
installed either together with an existing
installation or on dedicated hardware for more
demanding installations
• Can transcode video so the streams are robust
and can adapt to changing connection bandwidth.
The server also optimizes the use of available
bandwidth to get the best possible stream quality

the system to meet performance expectations.
Including optional transcoding, client-side
decoding, or a dynamic combination depending
on streams
• The Mobile server plugin in the Management
Application will give access to the Milestone
Mobile server management in order to change
default settings and read out miscellaneous
status information
• Multiple Milestone Mobile servers can be installed
in parallel, offering redundant setups and/or
allowing more simultaneous users. They also
allow users to connect to a server of their choice

HTTPS encrypting the connection to the Milestone
Mobile server or provide your own custom
certificate

server, so users can download and use the
Milestone Mobile client without having to do any
configuration
• Supports creating server side export through
XProtect Web Client and Milestone Mobile.

Integration options
• XProtect’s open SDK makes it possible to
incorporate video in your business processes
through seamless integration of third-party
applications, such as video analytics and access
systems
• Compatible with XProtect® Access Control
Module, an add-on to enable easy integration of
third-party access control solutions with
Milestone’s video management solutions. Users of
the Smart Client have a consolidated interface to
operate the access control systems with
dedicated functions to effectively monitor access
events, manually assist passages and conduct
investigations on specific access points or
cardholders
• Compatible with XProtect® Retail, an add-on
investigation tool for performing advanced data
analysis. Based on transaction data from pointof-sale (POS) or automated teller machines
(ATMs), XProtect Retail links data with
corresponding video from relevant cameras
• Compatible with XProtect® Transact that directly
links video with transaction data from POS or
ATMs. Transactions and corresponding video can
be monitored live or viewed later to identify
shrinkage, fraud or simply validate a transaction
• With Milestone Interconnect, XProtect Corporate
provides continuous monitoring of alarm status
from XProtect servers, video surveillance
cameras and external devices
• Compatible with XProtect Screen Recorder, an
add-on function that enables XProtect VMS to
inconspicuously capture screen recordings of any
Microsoft Windows-based PC or POS
terminal. Captured screen recordings are
managed just like camera recordings and can
therefore be viewed in live and playback mode,
and exported for evidence
• Integrate with systems such as access control,
alarms, gates and building management using
hardware input/output (I/O), internal events and
TCP/IP events
