RESTON, Va., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Cernium Corporation, the leading developer of video analytics-enabled products, today announced it has launched a certification program for Perceptrak®, now integrated with Milestone XProtect™ Enterprise. The program will certify integrators and value-added resellers to sell, design and provide technical support for Perceptrak for XProtect Enterprise.
"Analytics is quickly becoming an essential capability as video surveillance systems expand to higher and higher camera counts," said Melissa Blake, Perceptrak Product Manager for Cernium. "Perceptrak provides essential information about video content that allows administrators and end users to focus and respond only to relevant situations that require attention. Perceptrak for XProtect Enterprise gives users two powerful products in one seamless solution that enables a data-driven approach to video management, distribution, monitoring, storage and query. We are extremely pleased to offer certification training that will result in additional revenue opportunities for our channel partners."
Launched at ISC West in April 2008, Perceptrak for XProtect Enterprise is available for immediate delivery. It is an open-standards software add in that operates on COTS hardware for maximum design flexibility and seamlessly integrates with the Milestone video management system. Offering tremendous value to both channel partners and end users alike, Perceptrak is ideal both as an add in to existing Milestone systems and as an essential capability for new installations.
"The demand for powerful, easy-to-manage video surveillance capabilities is constantly growing," said Mark S. Wilson, Marketing Director, Americas, with Milestone. "Milestone's open platform enabled Perceptrak to seamlessly integrate with Milestone's powerful XProtect Enterprise video management system, giving users a flexible, affordable solution to address mission-critical video surveillance needs."
The certification program for Perceptrak for XProtect Enterprise will be offered through Security Consultants International, LLC (SCI), a leading industry training organization for IP-video security solutions.
