COPENHAGEN – December 13th 2010.  Milestone Systems, the world’s leading provider of open platform IP video management software, was awarded the 2010 Application Development Partner (ADP) of the Year for North America by Axis Communications during its annual Axis Channel Convergence Conference (ACCC) that was held in Las Vegas November 15-17h. Milestone was selected as a winner due to its close product collaboration and active engagement with Axis. 

“Our ADPs are carefully selected companies that match our level of industry drive and innovation with a network video focus,” says Fredrik Nilsson, General Manager at Axis Communications Inc. “Milestone has consistently elevated the IP surveillance market with their educational efforts and aggressively works alongside Axis as a true partner in product development and interoperability. We look forward to continuing our success of providing comprehensive customers solutions in the future.”

Milestone is a partner in the Axis ADP program, an initiative that assists software developers as they integrate Axis network video products to ensure compatibility and reliability for video management solutions and applications. ADPs can leverage the VAPIX® platform, technical documentation, Software Development Kits (SDKs), development support and the AXIS Camera Application Platform to create software and analytics solutions for customers.

“Axis is also a Milestone Manufacturer Alliance Partner (MAP) and our close relationship proceeds to grow worldwide, strengthening our leadership in the development of IP solutions for video surveillance,” states Henrik Friborg, VP of Strategic Alliances and Co-Founder of Milestone Systems. 

Another synergy between Milestone Systems and Axis is the mutual commitment to working with ONVIF-compliant products (a standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products), where both companies strive to ensure IP interoperability to create best-in-class solutions and more options for customers. 

The ACCC is an annual gathering of Axis’ top distributors, systems integrators, development partners, and strategic infrastructure partners in North America. The event includes educational sessions relating to IP-based technology trends, review of the Axis product portfolio and future plans, as well as highlights of customer success stories.
