The OEM agreement allows IPVideo Corporation to sell and support Milestone's XProtect software platform IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of IP-based video surveillance and command centre solutions, announced recently that it has entered into an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) agreement with Milestone Systems, by which IPVideo Corporation will sell and support a rebranded version of Milestone's XProtect software platform. The IPVideo solution will parallel the offerings of Milestone's current Enterprise and Corporate software suites, which cater to large-scale, multi-site, geographically dispersed and high-security applications. IPVideo will offer the video management solution (VMS) as software-only or pre-loaded onto purpose-built, powerful video servers with a range of storage options. In addition, IPVideo will offer licensing to the full range of supported integration partners that comprise Milestone's open platform ecosystem. C3fusion integrated security management solution The addition of a VMS powered by Milestone Systems, the industry leader in its support for open integrations, is a natural complement to IPVideo Corporation's own award winning C3fusion integrated security management (ISM) solution. C3fusion, which is quickly gaining acceptance as a preferred security and facilities management platform for municipalities, utilities and law enforcement, provides centralised command, control and coordinated response to a wide range of disparate systems through a central interface. Milestone System's XProtect platform is already supported by C3fusion, bringing surveillance video, as well as data from any of its community of integration partners, into the C3fusion management console. The ability for IPVideo to sell and support a rebranded version of XProtect video management under the same umbrella as its C3fusion product allows the company to offer customers a seamless continuum of options - from pure VMS with future-ready capabilities, to a fully expanded, multifaceted control environment that bridges security technologies with the growing Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, IPVideo will continue to offer its SentryVMS video management system, a robust and user-friendly VMS option for customers seeking a cost-effective solution that includes select license-free cameras and encoders. OEM agreement with Milestone Systems "IPVideo Corporation considers it an honour to associate our name with Milestone Systems, a company that has defined the network video surveillance space, and the open platform paradigm, since day one. Milestone's vision of creating an open standards community closely matches IPVideo's fundamental guiding principles, to 'expand the boundaries of technology' through an open community. We see this partnership as an opportunity for both companies to deliver tremendous, game-changing value to the marketplace," said David Antar, President of IPVideo Corporation. "The commitment from IPVideo Corp to build its future VMS business on the Open Platform from Milestone is really exciting and fits perfectly into our OEM strategy towards opening up new markets and channels. With IPVideo Corp we have a strong partner within the security industry who will not only provide high-end technology solutions to the market, but also be a valuable partner in providing feedback for our product development and future roadmap for the XProtect product line" said Henrik K. Nielsen, OEM Sales Director at Milestone Systems.
