XProtect Professional is comprehensive open platform IP video management software for mid-sized, single-site installations. With multiple configurable servers, it supports up to 64 cameras per server and an unlimited number of users.

XProtect Professional is ideal for capturing HD video and for installations requiring supreme playback functionality, by providing an efficient way to manage video and swiftly export evidence. Search tools such as Smart Search and the Sequence Explorer allow you to quickly find incidents from one or more cameras.

A complete solution for campuses that have multiple buildings at a single-site, XProtect Professional features Milestone Integration Platform (MIP) support, enabling integration with business systems and video analytics.

XProtect Professional has powerful features that optimize the performance of existing hardware.

  • Multiple servers: Easily expand your installation and add more cameras and hardware without decreasing the performance of the system because additional devices can be spread among up to five servers
  • Dual streaming: Two independent, configurable video streams for live and recorded viewing can be individually optimized for stream compression, resolution and frame rate
  • Improved motion detection: Lowers memory and central processing unit (CPU) consumption even when additional cameras are added and can detect motion on key frames or on a specific part of the video in regular or lower quality resolution

It is easy to create video evidence with tools that help you find and investigate incidents

  • Sequence Explorer: Displays a visual overview of captured video and time intervals from one of more cameras as drag-and-throw image thumbnails, enabling quick evidence creation
  • Panomorph lens: ImmerVision Enables® 360° panomorph lens support gives a complete surround view of your installation. A panomorph lens increases your video surveillance coverage and removes blind spots so you can see more with the same number of cameras
  • XProtect® Smart Client – Player: A video viewer that is added to exported video and audio with one click. Evidence is exported in Milestone database format along with any relevant information you choose to add, making it easy for law enforcement to quickly view footage of the incident and then re-export the most essential video

XProtect Professional supports numerous 3rd party plug-ins and applications providing you with a broad selection of integrations. For example, you can minimize shrinkage by using XProtect Transact  to combine video with transaction data from POS or ATMs .

XProtect Professional is a single-server IP video surveillance system supporting up to 64 cameras. It features full functionality of advanced management, flexible scheduling, fast searching and analysis, and has the widest choice of network video and computer hardware equipment.

A Milestone Product Maintenance Agreement (PMA) entitles you to free access to product upgrades. The PMA is a contract that runs 1 or more years at a time and is purchased along with a new product, or if you purchase a product upgrade.

A PMA protects your investment and gives you control over the total cost of ownership. 

Two strong arguments for choosing a PMA with your product:

Stay on the technological forefront.

Get free access to all interim and major releases, patches and device packs within your product category.


Lower the cost of growing your installation.

We will refund the full purchase price* of your existing product when you upgrade to a higher-level product (trade-in). You only pay the difference!* See which products have a PMA:

Plan ahead – save money

The price of a PMA is approximately 18% of the recommended retail price of the XProtect products. By selecting one of the long-term PMAs (2-5 year PMAs) you can make considerable savings, and therefore optimize your total cost of ownership even more.

When buying an XProtect™ product license, you can choose to buy a PMA at the same time. Under the PMA, all upgrades are completely free of charge for one year. The software upgrades are delivered electronically throughout the year.

How long does it last?

You buy a PMA for up to 5 years at a time. PMA can also be purchased on a daily basis to allow the PMA period to run until a specific date. This is particularly useful if the PMA renewals are to be aligned with calendar or fiscal years, or if you want a coherent PMA coverage on an extended system where additional system components have been purchased in addition to the original system. Before the PMA expires, your Milestone partner will automatically receive e-mails to remind you about renewal.

How is it purchased?

With new purchase: The PMA is only available as part of a new product purchase and not as an add-on to a product that has been purchased previously.   

If a PMA is purchased, it must be purchased for the base license and the camera licenses.  a PMA can not be purchased for just the base license or just the camera licenses.
