COPENHAGEN – 17 September 2009.  Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software, will demonstrate a concentrated sampling of leading-edge video-enabled integrations from select solution partners at the ASIS trade show in Anaheim, California, 21-24 September.

Milestone Systems was founded on the concept of an open and independent IP video software platform to drive the convergence of video surveillance and IP-based management systems. The Milestone Solution Partner and Manufacturer Alliance programs have driven innovation and flexibility for customers through software and hardware independence. This will be illustrated at the upcoming ASIS security industry event next week.

The open platform IP video management software from Milestone Systems has had an available Software Development Kit (SDK) since June of 2004. Since that time the Milestone Solution Partners have integrated over 100 video-enabled applications with the Milestone open platform utilizing this SDK.

The Milestone Solutions Center at ASIS will give attendees a unique opportunity to experience multiple application integrations in one place. These integrations illustrate how an open platform can provide innovative developments for video management solutions. ASIS participants visiting the Solutions Center will be asking themselves what other exciting applications will also be possible in the future.

“When Milestone talks about our open platform making the future up to you, we mean what we say and the Solutions Center demonstrates this with some ground-breaking video-enabled applications. A truly open platform provides endless options for integrating new innovations as they become available - no matter which vendor those may come from.  Our Solution Partners are taking advantage of this to offer leading-edge video-enabled solutions that can make a difference in surveillance and business installations,” says Eric Fullerton, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Milestone Systems.

The Solutions Center at ASIS booth 4445 will demonstrate to the market that Milestone offers strong APIs, which more than 100 Solution Partners have integrated with XProtect open platform IP video management software. The innovative and diverse video-enabling applications on display at the show will include the following: VideoIQ’s intelligent video cameras with built-in DVRs, SecurTEQ’s high-level threat detection systems, RISCO Group’s intrusion access control, Iomnis servers and storage, CNL’s IPSecurityCenter, and BriefCam’s Video Synopsis.

  • BriefCam’s Video Synopsis technology compacts hours of events into a “brief” that takes just minutes to search, find and watch, saving hours of video review and speeding up response times.  This integration is easy to install with the integrated Milestone XProtect platform. 
  • CNL’s IPSecurity Center provides Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) functionality to improve enterprise security by aggregating intelligence from all security systems. It helps increase control with embedded, process-driven, situation management and reduces costs by efficiently managing all security resources. 
  • Iomnis offers FTL servers and storage optimized for video. Configuration portals make installation easy and link to leading distributors. Preconfigured with Milestone XProtect software already integrated, these solutions are optimized for the optimal video environment. 
  • RISCO Group’s seamlessly integrated solution uses the Milestone XProtect™ IP video open platform as a recording engine for the SynopSYS™ Integrated Security and Building Management System.  Site management and control is from one simple interface, using intuitive synoptic maps to allow command and control of security, video monitoring, fire detection, access control and other building automation systems. 
  • SecurTEQ's integration offers best-in-class sensors for threats from chemicals, biological matter, radiation, nuclear risks, and explosives. SecurTEQ’s offerings also include intelligent video analysis for intrusion detection and verification, building and facility systems such as HVAC integration and automatic mitigation. 
  • VideoIQ claims the world’s first and only intelligent surveillance cameras and encoders with built-in DVRs, auto-calibration, and self-learning intelligent analytics, all with minimal bandwidth and storage demands, using the Milestone XProtect recording engine.

The Milestone Solutions Center Theater will also be presenting exciting map and Smart Wall functionality available with the newest release of the company’s flagship IP video management software for very large installations: XProtect Corporate version 3.0.
