Milestone Systems’ annual MIPS event this year brought together a rich community of video, security, and technology solution partners focused on advancing innovation.
2020 MIPS conference
Milestone Systems, a globally renowned provider of open platform video management software (VMS), hosted the 2020 Milestone Integration Platform Symposium (MIPS) conference, in Dallas, Texas on February 17-19, 2020. More than 800 Milestone technology partners, end customers and influencers came together to discuss the future of video management systems.
“At Milestone, we've been making choices since 1998 and the most consequential choice that we've made is the choice to support partnerships with an open platform versus going in alone,” said Tim Palmquist, Vice President for the Americas at Milestone Systems. “Our belief in creating a community with the freedom to choose is a philosophy that we've held dear from the very beginning — and we embrace this wholeheartedly. It’s now up to the integrator and the end-customer in how they choose to best deploy their VMS solutions.”

Milestone Marketplace 2.0
Milestone also revealed plans to launch version 2.0 of the Milestone Marketplace in mid-2020, which enables end-users to find resellers and integrators that deliver video solutions. Integrators are invited to promote their installation experience in solving real-life customer challenges while connecting with technology partners on Marketplace.
By showcasing proven installation experience along with software and hardware optimised for XProtect, the real power of Marketplace unfolds. It provides access to trustworthy and up-to-date community innovations as well as to integrators that include them in their video management solutions.
