MATE Intelligent Video Announces Milestone Solution Partnership

Joint agreement offers a comprehensive, intelligent security solution

Copenhagen, Denmark and Yehud, Israel, 25 September 2008 - MATE Intelligent Video, the technology leader in video analytics and intelligent video surveillance systems, and Milestone Systems, a global developer of open platform IP video management software, announced today a partnership agreement to deliver a comprehensive security solution.

MATE's advanced security solutions, Behavior WatchTM analytic video server and TriggerTM analytic video encoder, are now integrated with Milestone XProtectTM IP Video Management software to provide end users with a seamless solution for real-time proactive surveillance.

"The integration of a leading management system such as Milestone XProtect with MATE's advanced video analytics not only enhances both parties offerings and opens new channels, but also provides the market with a greatly enhanced security surveillance solution that will benefit the end-user," said Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Dr. Uri Engelhard, President & CEO for MATE.

MATE's advanced solutions for behavior detection leverage powerful video analysis algorithms that transform any analog or IP surveillance camera into an intelligent detection sensor: Trigger is a compact, low-power intelligent video detection encoder providing video stream with detection overlay for one, two or four video inputs analyzed concurrently. Behavior Watch is a hybrid video analysis server-based system that can analyze up to eight video feeds, including advanced human/object classification, and Scene Switch for tracking up to four different scenes from a single video feed.

The Milestone XProtect platform is a robust IP video management solution designed for any size enterprise. It optimizes bandwidth usage and scales to handle any number of cameras. Reliable and easy to use, XProtect allows operators to centrally, locally or remotely view live or recorded video to manage thousands of surveillance cameras from multiple locations simultaneously.

"Both Milestone and MATE are designed with open platforms that allow integration of their capabilities, and our partnership is very fruitful, clearly demonstrating the potential of open platforms in this industry. By using the Milestone SDK, MATE has integrated several analytics solutions into the Milestone XProtect IP video management software in record time." said Martin Kaufmann, MSP Program Manager at Milestone. "Incorporating MATE's value-adding video analytics into the Milestone XProtect Analytics Framework provides customers with a powerful yet easy-to-manage system."
