Milestone Systems, the Danish IP video management software (VMS) company, has signed Innovative Security Designs (ISD) as the first camera partner who will offer Milestone Arcus VMS embedded in their edge devices.
Milestone Arcus VMS embedded on ISD cameras can be a hosted edge server solution model for IP cameras supported by Milestone.
Edge storage is when recorded video data is stored in a de-centralised way at the edge (on devices such as cameras connected to a network). Hence the ability to record and manage up to a month of 1080P video on a single ISD camera.
By migrating to edge storage, customers can save money and simplify installations by eliminating expensive servers. It is described by the firms as an open platform solution that supports multiple camera types and brands, tied together and managed with the Milestone Arcus VMS.
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”.
This partnership means that Milestone XProtect customers can 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,” says Ian Johnston, CEO of ISD. “We share a common vision of having an open and powerful solution that makes video at the edge simple and 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 extends beyond storage and video management. ISD’s netSeries product line uses the same processor engines used in modern smartphones. The road map for the ISD-Milestone Arcus offerings will also include third-party analytics in the cameras.
“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,” says Lars Nordenlund, VP Incubations & Ventures, Milestone Systems.
“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.
