Milestone Integration Platform Symposium Celebrates Winning Through Partnership
In February 2015, Milestone held its 10th annual MIPS partner conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. It was our largest-ever gathering with close to 500 attendees and 50 exhibiting companies in the Technology Showcase that demonstrated integrated solutions for enhancing safety and optimizing business.
CEO Lars Thinggaard and CSMO Kenneth Petersen welcomed the distributors, system integrators, end users, software solution partners, camera manufacturers and storage providers to the event that took place at the Cosmopolitan Hotel’s new concert venue called The Chelsea, inspiring a bit of howling like a wolf pack of IP video fans. ‘Winning Together – The Power of Partnership’ was the theme as the topic addressed by speakers, industry panelists and interactive breakout sessions highlighted how the Milestone VMS open platform enables ongoing innovation and efficiency.
The Utah Transit Authority, hhgregg retail chain, Iberdrola power utilities management, a major metropolitan police force, and Hyatt Hotels presented the solutions that meet their security and business challenges. Each illustrated how the IP networked video systems built with the Milestone open platform are reliable, flexible, and scalable as their needs change and grow.
A lively industry panel discussion involved five leading camera manufacturers: Axis Communications, Arecont Vision, Bosch, Samsung Techwin and Sony. Top managers from these companies shared their opinions on the future of the industry and ideas on 4K expectations, recording at the edge, cloud technology progress and its potential impact. The Technology Showcase included Milestone Partners exhibiting every kind of integration with the open platform VMS.
“The constantly growing number of Milestone Solution Partners illustrates that winning through partnerships is the key to solid growth through the freedom of choice provided when doing business with our open platform. The multi-faceted expertise throughout our global ecosystem is enabling the industry to continually improve safety and security as well as efficiency in business operations,” said Lars Thinggaard.
