Milestone Systems opens new UK innovation hub

The new innovation hub features state-of-the-art experience centre and training facilities

Copenhagen, April 26, 2019
- Milestone Systems, the number one open platform community in networked video management software (VMS), opened its new UK headquarters on Thursday 25th April at the Landmark business park in Reading, Berkshire.

The new innovation hub has been designed to support Milestone’s wider community of technology partners, and features a new state of the art experience centre, complete with wall-to-wall screens for a fully immersive virtual presentation experience.

Attendees at the launch were able to witness the experience centre in use, during a presentation by Dave Gregory, Business Development Manager for Northern Europe at Milestone Systems.

The experience centre is the focal point of the new innovation hub, featuring six 65-inch screens around the room, plus a video wall. The centre’s look and feel can be easily adapted to mirror that of the company brand using the centre, and offers users a dynamic virtual presentation experience that captures the innovative nature of the Milestone community of technology partners.

The hub has a fully working demo setup of Milestone software and hardware solutions, together with some of its ecosystem partner integrations including – but not limited to – partners such as Axis, BriefCam, Venzo, Nedap, Lenel and Bosch.
This means that channel partners and end users can experience Milestone’s next generation open platform capabilities such as AI-based video analytics like facial recognition, or user friendly integra-tions to perimeter protection solutions like radars and intrusion protection and detection systems.

A new training facility was also showcased at the launch event and will welcome up to 25 attendees at a time to take part in a variety of one-hour CPD courses in addition to Milestone’s certification courses that are already up and running. The training facility is also available to the Milestone part-ner community to use as training hub for their own range of sessions.

Neil Killick, Regional Leader, Northern Europe, at Milestone Systems welcomed guests at the launch, and commented: “The launch of this new innovation hub in the UK pays testament to the perfor-mance and dedication of the UK team; I’m proud to open this new facility that is as much for our wider community as it is for the team here.

“Milestone’s open platform is the driver of innovation and collaborative solutions in the security space, and beyond; the same spirit of openness is behind the launch of this new innovation hub.”
The aim of the new facility is to nurture Milestone community partnerships, better showcase the open platform capabilities, and introduce Milestone and its technology partners to vertical sectors beyond the security space.
