Double awards for Video management software

Milestone Systems : 01 August, 2014  (Company News)
Benchmark innovation awards have been received by Milestone Systems for its XProtect Corporate product and GPS/Laser sensor map tracking
Double awards for Video management software

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has received two Benchmark Innovation Awards, which were announced and presented at the IFSEC trade show in London last month. Nominations for the awards were requested from the industry at large by Benchmark Magazine, the only print media in the physical security sector that regularly tests and rates products for the benefit of installers and integrators.

Benchmark Magazine has undertaken extensive testing of various Milestone XProtect® video management software offerings over recent years, with high recommendations as a result. XProtect Corporate VMS received praise, especially for the rules functionality in its Management Client which provides unlimited flexibility for customizing a security installation to the specific needs of each customer. There were so many other positive features in the VMS to describe from the tests that the write-up required two parts published over several issues.

When XProtect Corporate received its award nominations from security professionals, Benchmark was therefore aware of the software’s unique attributes, with expert knowledge as to how it operates.

Pete Conway, Editor of Benchmark Magazine says: “Innovation has become our watchword, with the Benchmark Innovation Awards devised to reward the innovations which solve problems faced when designing and implementing a security solution, which add to the degree of security offered, or which increase the range of real-world benefits on offer.”

To be worthy of consideration for one of these awards, it is stated clearly in the nomination form that devices or systems must include a specific feature or function that ranks as innovative. Devices or software which add functionality and bring together other established systems are also considered.

Milestone XProtect Corporate video management software is open platform in its architecture which means that it is easily integrated with other systems or devices using the Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit (MIP SDK). One example of such a value-adding solution won the Benchmark Innovation Award for the intruder alarm category this year: REDHAWK, developed by The HawkEye Effect, maps and tracks multiple intruders to a precise GPS coordinate.

Jeffrey Blair, CEO of The HawkEye Effect, explains: “REDHAWK’s innovation is to free up the function of tracking from the camera and instead use the laser sensor together with a precise GPS mapping solution. The intelligent map receiving the information from the Optex REDSCAN detector takes control via the Milestone VMS and instructs the cameras to look at the exact location, enabling it to stitch views together and smoothly track multiple targets in outdoor or indoor environments.”

“Milestone is thrilled to receive not just one, but TWO Benchmark Innovation Awards in 2014! This recognizes all the hard work we do on XProtect Corporate to make it the world’s leading video management software AND the best open platform for innovative integrations with partner systems and devices,” says John Blem, Chief Product Officer at Milestone Systems.
