At Milestone Systems’ MIPS event last year, South Africa’s Camsecure was awarded a Milestone Partner of the Year 2008 award. This award is presented for outstanding distribution, project sales and system integrator installations.
James McManus from IMS Research revealed advance highlights from its upcoming market analysis of the video surveillance industry, including the announcement that Milestone proved to be number one for open platform IP video management in the ‘software only’ category worldwide (for vendors of pure IP video software solutions independent of hardware).
Also at the event, Martin Gren, co-founder of Axis Communications, discussed the future of network cameras with new compression standards, de-centralised storage, analytics at the edge, and the Open Network Video Interface Forum (OnVIF) for global industry hardware standards.
Arnaud Ganaye, head of the NeXt Surveillance project at Orange Technocenter (a division of France Telecom) proposed hosting video surveillance solutions through telecommunications providers as a new business opportunity.
James Milton, founder of Milton Technologies, detailed the use of thermal imaging and analytics to manage challenges in metals recycling, and Sherman Hall from the Atherton, California, police showed how Milestone IP video improves community safety and response to alerts. The University of East Anglia in the UK also illustrated how large and complex campus environments benefit from Milestone IP video surveillance software.
