ISD to Have the First Edge Based Video Solution Powered by Milestone Arcus

ISD to Have the First Edge Based Video Solution Powered by Milestone ArcusMilestone Systems, the open platform company for IP video management software (VMS), has signed Innovative Security Designs (ISD) as the first camera partner who will offer the robust and streamlined Milestone Arcus VMS embedded in their edge devices. 

With this collaboration, Milestone and ISD mark a new era of edge storage solutions. By redefining the role of a camera, Milestone Arcus VMS embedded on ISD cameras can be a hosted edge server solution model for all IP cameras supported by Milestone.

Innovation in the security industry and technology leveraged from the consumer electronic industry are fueling the adoption of edge storage – when recorded video data is stored in a de-centralized way at the edge (on devices such as cameras connected to a network).  The ability to record and manage up to a month of 1080P video on a single ISD camera meets customer expectations and requirements for distributed video storage. 

By migrating to edge storage, customers can realize the benefit of being able to save money and simplify installations by eliminating expensive servers. The combination of ISD and Milestone Arcus gives consumers even more choice by not requiring them to sacrifice legacy cameras that are not capable of edge storage. It is an open platform solution that supports multiple camera types and brands, all tied together and managed with the streamlined Milestone Arcus VMS.

IHS forecasts that the world market for network video surveillance equipment will grow rapidly, at an annual average rate of more than 25% over the next 5 years.

According to its principal video surveillance analyst, Jon Cropley, “As this market grows and as network surveillance products penetrate smaller installations, there will be an increasing need to simplify the installation of video management software and to operate that software more easily. The combination of Milestone Arcus with ISD cameras seems to be an initiative designed to meet this need”.

Milestone Arcus VMS gives a simple-to-use, clean and efficient interface. The collaboration between ISD and Milestone makes configuring and recording camera output easy and user friendly. ISD’s large, onboard, storage capacity as well as the ability to tie into other Milestone Arcus storage partners makes this a very powerful and elegant solution for redundant storage.

This partnership also means that existing Milestone XProtect customers can easily add an ISD/Milestone Arcus-enabled camera to their installations.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working together with the Incubation and Ventures team at Milestone,” said Ian Johnston, CEO of ISD. “We share a common vision of having an open and powerful solution that makes video at the edge simple, easy-to-deploy and operate. Our combined ability to extend the edge and be the host for other Milestone-supported camera vendors is groundbreaking.”

The collaboration and innovation extends beyond storage and video management. ISD’s award winning netSeries product line uses the same processor engines used in modern smartphones. The road map for the ISD-Milestone Arcus offerings will also include advanced, third-party analytics in the cameras. Edge-based analytics solve the problem of scalability for analytic partners as adding more cameras automatically adds computing power without adding more complexity.

Like storage and video management, everything is tied together using the Milestone Arcus streamlined user interface. Other vendors who wish to partner with Milestone Arcus can tie into this ecosystem, again bringing simplicity, ease-of-use and the ability for customers to choose the solutions that make sense for them.

“We’re excited to announce ISD as the first camera partner with Milestone Arcus VMS. ISD was a first mover with their embedded Microsoft Windows surveillance camera and a pioneer in providing real edge storage platforms. Installations taking advantage of edge devices with video recording and storage capabilities ensure maximum flexibility in their surveillance operations. ISD cameras embedded with Milestone Arcus VMS - running on Windows or Linux, able to add multiple analytics and leverage cloud technology - is an innovative and unique offering,” said VP Incubations & Ventures, Milestone Systems, Lars Nordenlund.

He continued, “There is a clear synergy with ISD and our vision of the Milestone open platform to enable the power of choice. It’s what our Incubation & Ventures unit is all about – building new solutions through best-in-class collaborations.” 

The ISD cameras embedded with pre-integrated Milestone Arcus VMS are expected be available in the second half of this year. Learn more at the IFSEC trade show in Birmingham, UK, May 13-16, at the Milestone stand H4 F90.

    Hexagon’s Geosystems presents a portable version of its Accur8vision detection system. A rugged all-in-one solution, the A8V MIND (Mobile Intrusion Detection) is designed to provide flexible protection of critical outdoor infrastructure and objects. Hexagon’s Accur8vision is a volumetric detection system that employs LiDAR technology to safeguard entire areas. Whenever it detects movement in a specified zone, it automatically differentiates a threat from a nonthreat, and immediately notifies security staff if necessary. Person detection is carried out within a radius of 80 meters from this device. Connected remotely via a portable computer device, it enables remote surveillance and does not depend on security staff patrolling the area. 3
