ProSoftware: Milestone XProtect /

Today I had a look on Milestone XProtect software from

This software is a really professional one and it is indeed expensive. But if you have just 1 camera then it is possible to use a free version of it.

The most expensive version can work with 64 network cameras per PC with resolution 640*480.

Milestone XProtect can handle 64 cameras on one PC. To do it you should have quite a PC: Dual Intel P4 Xeon 3.4 GHZ, 2 GB RAM, 1GB Network card and RAID controller of fast hard drives, plus Microsoft Windows 2003 Server.

Such PC costs from 3 000 to 4 000 USD. And software price is comparable.

With such PC the software from Milestonesys gives our about 670 FPS as a total performance.

In the near future we will write a full test result for XProtect.

Currently in the 1.3 megapixel test it has shown top speed. Only the superoptimized NetVisus was as fast as Milestone XProtect and has shown processor load from 38% to 45%.
