Milestone Systems, the Danish IP video management software (VMS) company, showcased its XProtect products at Intersec 2014, in Dubai. Nine Milestone Solution Partners were also exhibiting in the booth to present integrations based on Milestone software.
This event showcase and local presence in the Middle East/Africa (MEA) region gave Milestone more than 19,067 visitor impressions and 3,520 visits at Intersec 2014. These numbers where measured using video analytics, where a certified Milestone Solution Partner, NetApp, had an application that captured the number of Intersec visitors passing and their age, gender and interest level in the company stand. The total number of visitors to Intersec 2014 was 24,853, meaning the firm says that it has documented a huge visitor imprint that confirms the region’s growth in interest for video-enabled solutions.
Video analytics are a focus area for the firm and four of the nine Milestone Solution Partners present showed video analytics. The number of third-party integrations is now in the hundreds. Video analytics provide a tool for use in security systems, and for business applications, for example in retail and as a part of ‘smart buildings’.
Peter Biltsted, Sales Director, Middle East and Africa, for Milestone Systems says: “It was a very successful Intersec 2014 for Milestone and our partners. In particular, the huge interest shown by visitors, who came from the entire MEA region, is a clear indication that the market is accelerating. We can build on this positive response to further leverage our open platform strategy and dedicated partner ecosystem. Our declared aim for the future is to strengthen our local presence: we are honoured to be chosen by so many highly esteemed customers here.”
