Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, recently announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Denmark-based Milestone Systems A/S, a world leading provider of open platform video management software, via its subsidiary Canon Europa N.V. The new combination will create a formidable player in the fast growing network video surveillance market by combining the strengths of Canon’s innovative imaging technology with Milestone’s best in class video management software expertise.

Lars Thinggaard, President & CEO, Milestone Systems:"Milestone is extremely excited about the huge potential that being part of a global group will provide. Canon respects how we built our business with our partners and supports our strategy of providing open platform solutions and therefore the need to remain a standalone company within the Canon Group. We feel this step is right for taking both our business and support for suppliers and partners to a new level."

Following the completion of the acquisition, Milestone’s management will remain in place and they are committed to making this transition a success.
