COPENHAGEN – May 22, 2014.  Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has released the Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit 2014 (MIP SDK 2014) for its updated suite of XProtect VMS products. The MIP SDK 2014 provides flexible access to video, events, metadata (data connected to video), configuration data and optimized functions for access control integration. This offers an even wider array of integration possibilities for the Milestone partner ecosystem.

A new integration framework in the MIP SDK 2014 enables fast and easy integration of access control systems with XProtect VMS through XProtect® Access Control Module 2014. The framework allows access control systems to use video functions in the XProtect® Smart Client interface, simplifying the user experience.
