Low-complexity, low-cost offerings will run on Linux®, Mac® or Windows®
COPENHAGEN, March 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Milestone Systems, the open platform
company in IP video management software (VMS), announces Milestone
Arcus™: an embedded video surveillance platform for low-complexity,
low-cost security installations. Milestone Arcus runs on Linux®, Mac®OSX and Windows® related operating systems, within network storage and cameras or other
devices on the edge. This is a significant differentiator in today's
security market offerings. Hardware partners embedding Milestone Arcus
in any kind of hardware form factor will be able to offer a
streamlined, video management tool that is simple and easy to install -
at very competitive price points.
Milestone Arcus is a multi-platform VMS solution for hardware vendors to
embed in their products, to be sold by their channels as an
out-of-the-box solution, ready to use. These embedded solutions will be
co-branded with Milestone to let customers know they are getting the
best in video surveillance. Milestone Arcus is the most lean yet
high-performance product in the Milestone portfolio, which up to now
has been Milestone XProtect® VMS offerings that run on Windows and are sold by the worldwide
Milestone Systems network of channel partners.
Milestone Arcus is a brand-new VMS product with new development code in
its core that takes advantage of the company's 15 years of experience
in video surveillance technology. It is the first delivery from
Milestone's new Incubation & Ventures business unit that was created in
"Milestone Arcus is a multi-platform VMS that hardware vendors can embed
in their products for customers wanting simple, inexpensive
surveillance tools. Milestone Arcus makes the move from analog to IP
easy and fast for partners and their customers," says Lars Nordenlund,
VP of Incubation & Ventures at Milestone Systems.
About 60% of the physical security market is estimated to be using
analog equipment so there is considerable potential business that will
be moving to IP networked solutions over the coming years.
"There is conservatively $6B in analog sales by 2015 that will be
converting to IP in the security equipment market, not including
service and maintenance. Milestone Arcus opens up new growth
opportunities in which hardware vendors can accelerate their business,"
said Balaji Srimoolanathan, Principal Consultant - Aerospace, Defence &
Security, Frost & Sullivan. "Milestone Arcus is timed right for this
trend and can reach the low end of the security market that will be in
transition. It will be a major driver, with huge impact in motivating a
lot of people to move toward IP."
Hardware vendors who embed Milestone Arcus in their products will gain
an advantage from low development costs by using the top-branded
Milestone VMS technology. Milestone will provide the integration and
software upgrade paths in ongoing new releases.
Several early adopter partners will be announcing their products with
Milestone Arcus very soon. Learn more at the Milestone Systems booth
