Strong partner presence at Milestone booth
As the partner ecosystem is a cornerstone of the Milestone business strategy, a strong partner presence at the Milestone booth at IFSEC International is a natural consequence. This year is no exception. A wide array of innovative partner solutions will be shown, from advanced storage solutions to forward-looking video analytics.
The list of Milestone Solution Partners presenting at the Milestone booth is:
Access Control Showcase
Milestone will display integration for Bosch Access Professional Edition with XProtect Access Control Module 2014 in the XProtect® Smart Client via the new plug-in from Bosch. ISONAS is also demonstrating the new XProtect Access Control Module plug-in to XProtect Smart Client at the Milestone booth. So far more than 25 other Milestone access control partners have announced support for the XProtect Access Control Module, which indicates high demand for unifying access control systems through the video management software.
The Milestone XProtect Access Control Module 2014 is an add-on product for XProtect VMS that enables easy integration of third-party access control systems with Milestone video surveillance solutions.
Future-ready integration at IFSEC
Sony and Bosch Security Systems are two Milestone camera partners showing new metadata capabilities in XProtect 2014 at the Milestone booth. Metadata is any data adding an information layer to video and audio streams. Support for metadata in XProtect 2014 Advanced VMS Product range gives new levels of integration possibilities for the Milestone partner ecosystem.
In the XProtect Advanced VMS Product range that includes XProtect® Corporate 2014 and XProtect® Expert 2014, Milestone introduced an ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliant framework for handling and storing video-related metadata.
"The Milestone open platform technology is the key factor that adds value to our partner ecosystem. At IFSEC International, we invite customers and channel partners to meet some of our solution partners to learn more about the very best in video solutions. Together with these partners we show how open platform video systems can benefit our mutual customer business," says Thomas Lausten, Milestone Systems VP Sales EMEA. "We are thrilled to show access control integration and metadata support. From day one the response to our XProtect Access Control Module has been fantastic, and we are delighted to show the first of these integrated solutions from key partners at IFSEC."
Milestone will also feature a competition at the booth. Visitors can take the Milestone Husky challenge, and compete in setting up the Milestone Husky™ M10 as quickly as possible. Each day the fastest contestant will win a free Milestone Husky M10 and two Sony bullet cameras.
