Siemens IP cameras supported by Milestone open IP software

Product Profile

Siemens Building Technologies has recently joined the Milestone Systems' Manufacturer Alliance Programme "MAP" and has already integrated its newest range of hybrid cameras in the latest Milestone software, with more to be added throughout the year.

The initiative was based on the decision for future cooperation between Milestone and Siemens to use the synergies of both companies in the fields of open IP software and high quality CCTV IP cameras.

Siemens recently successfully released a new range of hybrid MJPEG / MPEG4 cameras CCIx1345, which have now been integrated in the latest Milestone software, released in December 2008. Siemens plans to further expand the range of IP camera products during 2009, including 1.3 Megapixel MJPEG / MPEG4 cameras and fixed domes, as well as IP VGA resolution PTZ domes. New models were previewed on the Siemens stand at the Security Essen exhibition in Germany last year.

The new range of cameras  - which can be switched between MJPEG and MPEG4 encoding to offer complete flexibility - comprises ‘colour', ‘day-night' and ‘day-night with wide dynamic' models for use in a multitude of applications. High-performance CCD sensors permit very high light-sensitivity to deliver outstanding images indoors and out, day and night.

Frederik De Meyer, Siemens Building Technologies Product Line Head CCTV, comments: "Our customers are increasingly looking towards IP solutions for their video surveillance requirements and this new co-operation will enable us to enhance what we are able to offer. We are delighted to have joined the programme, combining the excellent image quality for which the Siemens range of cameras is known, with Milestone's own excellent reputation in the high-end Video-over-IP market. This partnership will benefit our customers in their increasingly demanding IP applications."
