Milestone supported Arecont Vision megapixel cameras and re-programmed new, enhanced versions of the device drivers over the years
"Technology Partner of the Year for 2012" award has been presented to Milestone in all three regions

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has received a series of awards from Arecont Vision, manufacturer of megapixel network cameras. The Arecont Vision Technology Partner of the Year for 2012 has now been presented to Milestone in all three regions of the world. The awards acknowledge the strength in the companies’ collaborative efforts in the growing market for megapixel IP network video surveillance solutions.

The increasing uptake of megapixel network video cameras is well documented by market analysts. IHS Inc. estimates that the megapixel camera market will see growth rates in the range of 35-40 percent during the next couple of years, and that 94 percent of all network video camera sales will be megapixel by 2017.

"Milestone Systems is a key Arecont Vision Technology Partner around the world, proactively teaming with us in all aspects of the business – technology, marketing, sales, implementation, and support,” states Jason Schimpf, Director of Sales Operations and Partner Relations for Arecont Vision. “Joint activities between our field sales organizations are supported by application engineers that cooperate well. The strategic partnership excels at the executive management level too. Altogether, continually expanding opportunities are being achieved, with the funnel in APAC and the Mideast exploding over the past year.”

Some of the world's most valuable
brands are using Milestone and
Arecont Vision in their facilities to
help protect assets and people

Some of the world’s most valuable brands are using Milestone and Arecont Vision in their facilities to help protect assets and people. “Of the Forbes top ten companies, half are Arecont Vision customers and the majority of those projects are shared with Milestone. Major joint projects include large retail chains, university campuses, government properties, police and law enforcement, exhibition centres, and more,” adds Schimpf.

Milestone has long supported Arecont Vision megapixel cameras and re-programmed new, enhanced versions of the device drivers over the years. At the end of 2011, a new version that uses Arecont Vision’s latest firmware was released.

“Since that time, there have been no reported integration issues with our combined technology,” says Schimpf. “We are talking about solid integrations that work, especially with our newer products. Milestone’s device support for Arecont Vision takes advantage of our forward compatibility feature. And because Arecont Vision cameras share a unified API, this means that when many of our new products are released, they are ‘plug and play’ with the existing Milestone driver even before Milestone certifies them.”
