Vintra Announces Integration with Milestone XProtect
September 12, 2022
New plugin enables XProtect users to apply Vintra AI analytics to live and recorded video
Atlanta, GA (September 12, 2022) – Vintra, Inc., a leading provider of AI-powered video analytics solutions, announced a new integration between Vintra Fortify, their video intelligence solution, and Milestone Xprotect, a leading VMS platform with more than 20 years on the market and over 500,000 installations worldwide. The integration will provide seamless connectivity between the two technologies, making it easy for users to manage their full video experience within a single client.
Milestone XProtect users can now add AI-powered video analytics to any fixed or mobile camera or stored video with a single click, giving them the ability to apply analytics to specific cameras on demand. The rich rules engine within Vintra Fortify enables an endless combination of alerts to be produced, featuring “smart muting” to train the system over time, minimizing false alerts. Vintra Fortify also features advanced pattern analysis technology that helps users go beyond simple detections of objects. This includes our industry-leading Re-ID technology that can quickly locate individuals or objects across multiple video streams, providing valuable information regarding the “journey” of that individual or object.
“One of our fundamental objectives is to improve the information and insights that organizations can derive from their surveillance systems, effectively transforming them from reactive to proactive solutions,” said Brent Boekestein, CEO and Co-Founder of Vintra. “Beyond the Fortune 10 company, a top-50 bank, numerous U.S. government and law enforcement agencies, and others that we share as customers, this partnership provides hundreds of thousands of Milestone users with an easy and convenient on-ramp to sophisticated analytics without a significant investment or need to rip and replace existing cameras or systems.”
The integration takes the form of a plugin that enables the use of Vintra Fortify inside XProtect as a tab in the user interface. Cameras can be automatically imported from XProtect to Vintra so that Vintra’s AI-driven video analytics can be applied in real time. Real-time alerts generated by Vintra Prevent are sent to XProtect and can be viewed by users in Alarm Manager within the XProtect Smart Client, on Vintra’s alert page, and via the mobile app.
For post-event investigations, recorded video footage can be easily imported from XProtect to Vintra Investigate for AI-powered video searches, automating and dramatically accelerating the often mundane and laborious process of manually reviewing video footage.
Through this integration, Milestone XProtect users now have access to many key features of Vintra Fortify. Re-ID utilizes a face, body or vehicle reference image, re-
identifies that object across multiple cameras to quickly provide security teams with a heightened level of situational awareness regarding a potential issue. Live Re-ID also features the ability to alert users as to the last known position of that object of interest. Crowd Size Alert is triggered when there are too many or too few individuals detected in a camera’s field of view, helping support health and safety initiatives as well as supporting use cases such as continuously verifying the presence of security personnel in a room. A Loitering Alert protects critical areas from unauthorized access or presence by notifying when a person or vehicle is detected for longer than a specified timeframe. Mute Alerts enables users to selectively mute alerts for a specified static object, reducing false positives and increasing trust in the system. For Vintra users, VMS on-demand indexing increases the number of cameras that can benefit from video analytics.
