TDC, a leading multi-national telecommunications company, has entered into a partner alliance with Milestone Systems. It began with installing Milestone XProtect IP video surveillance solutions in the TDC chain of 61 Danish retail shops, and progresses next month to a series of seminars for interested TDC business customers across the country, in addition to offering the solution for sale in 15 TDC Business Centers.
TDC wants to help their customers easily handle digital video surveillance to safeguard against vandalism, break-ins and theft. With the new TDC Video Surveillance offering based on Milestone XProtect software, customers will be able to have a total solution, where TDC delivers, installs, configures and services the IP-based system that can be installed on a company’s existing network.
TDC's offering is based on IP video management software from Milestone Systems, with IP cameras from the leading hardware manufacturers. TDC Video Surveillance can be customized to a company’s individual business needs: a basic solution is targeted to smaller businesses, who require no more than four cameras to monitor specific areas; a standard solution is designed for customers with larger requirements.
TDC Video Surveillance can be delivered as a pure LAN solution that operates on a company’s internal network. If hooked up to an internet connection, there is remote access from any location to see either live images from the IP cameras or archived recordings. The high quality images are stored on a standard PC for quick searching or exporting as evidence for the police during investigations. Customers can also take advantage of TDC Surveillance via VPN MPLS, which is a secure and fast network for organizations with geographically-spread divisions, allowing them to monitor many locations from a central place without sending recordings over the internet.
The September seminars, to be held in cities across Denmark, are called ‘The Video Surveillance of the future’ and discuss the monitoring of outdoor, office or cash register areas. Milestone Systems will present live demonstrations of the XProtect functionality like Smart Search of recordings, browsing live video streams, producing evidence materials, scheduling cameras, defining image quality and resolution options, operational cost effectiveness, and more.
