ASIS 2009, ANAHEIM, Calif.  (Sept. 21, 2009) – VideoIQ, the inventor of the world’s first and only intelligent surveillance camera with a built-in DVR, and Milestone Systems, the leading global provider of open platform IP video management software, announced today that VideoIQ’s iCVR™ product line is now integrated with Milestone XProtect™, providing end users with a seamless solution for intelligent, proactive surveillance.

VideoIQ iCVR cameras and encoders now work with version 6.5 of Milestone XProtect Enterprise and version 2.0 of XProtect Corporate IP video management platforms. Milestone’s open video management software enabled the integration to leverage the capabilities of the VideoIQ iCVR to provide cost-effective and easily-installed video analytics systems. The integrated solution uses the XProtect interface for monitoring alarms, viewing live video and responding to security threats identified by the VideoIQ iCVR.

In addition, XProtect Enterprise allows access to the video stored in the iCVR as if it were a single channel DVR, providing the bandwidth savings that have made the iCVR so popular. Integration also includes management of the audio, alarm inputs, alarm output and PTZ controls in the iCVR through both Corporate and Enterprise platforms.

“This collaboration with VideoIQ demonstrates the strength of the Milestone open platform and SDK to quickly integrate new technologies as they become available,” said Henrik Friborg, vice president, strategic alliances, and co-founder of Milestone Systems. “VideoIQ’s integration with Milestone offers a unique and proactive security solution, especially where auto-calibrating video analytics are required for changing environments.”

The VideoIQ iCVR is the world’s first and only intelligent surveillance camera with a built-in DVR.  VideoIQ’s analytics built into the iCVR are also the only technology in the industry that requires no calibration – users can simply plug it in and begin using it immediately. The analytics adapt to changes in the environment, eliminating maintenance costs that have plagued video analytics systems in the past.

“Integration with XProtect represents a significant opportunity for us to serve a broader base of customers who need iCVR functionality and have standardized on Milestone,” said Doug Marman, chief technology officer and vice president of products for VideoIQ. “We’ve had many XProtect customers asking for our iCVR and we are happy to make it a part of the systems they install every day.”
