Milestone Systems highlights crime ring busted at security event
Milestone Systems had a neighboring booth with surveillance cameras set up to demonstrate XProtect™ IP video management software, which recorded the dirty deeds of stealing.
"I arrived at our booth early Wednesday morning to get our security systems up and running when I realised the laptop that ran our radar surveillance system was gone; it stored proprietary software from Moog QuickSet. I immediately reported it to the Arata event managers, who contacted the security personnel, as well as the Dallas police. They suggested I ask booths around mine if they were missing anything, so I approached Kevin Gramer from Rimage, who was exhibiting in the Milestone booth. He immediately fired up the Milestone video from an Axis camera that was pointing at the Moog QuickSet booth all night. Needless to say, I was more than impressed when he pulled up the video of the two individuals clearly stealing the laptop. Kevin was extremely accommodating, showing me the features of the software, zooming in on the individuals' faces, slowing down the video, rewinding, etc. He burned five CDs for me and I immediately gave Arata services a copy of the video clearly showing the perpetrators in action. The video surveillance helped the authorities positively identify them; they were confronted and we got our laptop back," relates Trish Logue, Marketing Manager at Moog QuickSet.
