Overview of the Milestone XProtect Express+ - Base Licence

Milestone Platinum Channel Partners logo

Using the same high-performance architecture as Milestone’s advanced product suite, XProtect Express+ video management software (VMS) builds on the surveillance capabilities of Express to offer a comprehensive and scalable recording solution - ideal for single-site businesses. The software allows users to connect from 1 up to 48 IP cameras and features full Alarm Manager support, as well as the centralised management of an unlimited number of users via Microsoft Active Directory.

Support for archiving to Network Attached Storage (NAS) allows for large volume and long-term storage of video footage in a cost-effective manner, whilst reducing the load on the server. In addition, third-party software applications and XProtect add-on products offer a diverse range of video solutions to increase the levels of functionality in a system. XProtect Express+ also supports multi-layered maps which provide a complete graphical overview of the installation.

Over 6000 IP camera models are compatible with this Open Platform software, including models with 4K Ultra HD resolution or H.265 compression format. Support for hardware accelerated video motion detection offers a high-performing system, but at a lower total cost thanks to the CPU load reduction. Additionally, users are able to configure several cameras, roles and users simultaneously - a handy time saver when deploying or scaling up a system.

Users can access their system remotely with the help of Milestone’s three free interfaces. XProtect Smart Client offers full management of the system when on site and the XProtect Web Client provides remote access to live footage, playback and the sharing of recordings. The free Milestone Mobile app is also available and allows users to view both live and recorded video - directly via a smartphone or tablet.

Please note: This licence is for the installation of the XProtect Express+ recording server. To add camera licences you will need to purchase an additional Milestone XProtect Express+ camera licence for each device.
