Arcules is a provider of integrated video and access control cloud services, who has now announced the commercial availability of the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid™ VMS Solution in North America and Europe. This offers a combination of Arcules Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate on-premise video management software (VMS). The result is a flexible and feature-rich hybrid video surveillance solution ideal for organizations looking to centralize their dispersed video monitoring operations.

Organizations that require both the flexibility of VSaaS and the functionality of on-premise VMS will benefit from the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution with performance built on enterprise-grade infrastructure and security.

With this, Milestone XProtect customers can deploy remote sites quickly, with minimal IT resources and downtime while still benefiting from the strong capabilities of XProtect on-premise VMS. Additionally, Arcules’ intuitive platform provides sites and cameras connected to Arcules VSaaS an underlying cloud infrastructure such as:

  • compatibility between sites,
  • low video latency,
  • data encryption,
  • redundancy,
  • streamlined maintenance with automatic updates, and
  • easy onboarding.

“Milestone resellers and end users can take advantage of many cloud computing benefits,” said Bjorn Skou Eilertsen, CTO of Milestone Systems. “The typical Milestone XProtect Corporate user has many branch offices of different sizes and locations. Enabling this hybrid deployment option can allow them to simplify large-scale deployments.  After the Arcules system is interconnected, the user can leverage the connected cameras with the advanced XProtect Corporate product capabilities.”

The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution uses Milestone Interconnect™ technology to combine the hyper-scalability and licensing flexibility of Arcules cloud service with the feature-rich video management functions of XProtect Corporate. The combination of these advanced technologies provides uniform access to live video, recordings and alarms across cameras physically connected on-premise and virtually connected via the Arcules cloud, through XProtect Smart Client, XProtect Smart Wall, the web and mobile clients.

Organizations with distributed locations such as healthcare, retail, utility environments, corporate campuses and education can benefit from high-performance cloud services to provide real-time insight in the event of an incident in remote areas.

The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution also adds value to monitoring stations and law enforcement organizations that use XProtect Corporate as their VMS platform. They can now access cameras and customers subscribed to the Arcules cloud service, directly from their on-premise XProtect system.

“The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution is an ideal solution for businesses looking to expand their surveillance operation across geographically dispersed locations,” said Arcules CEO Andreas Pettersson. “These businesses can enjoy the strong capabilities of on-premise VMS while reducing their capital investment. The solution also enables organizations to better manage their operational costs as a result of flexible pricing schemes and minimal hardware requirements.”

Arcules will demonstrate the solution in booth #809 at the MIPS 2020 Conference, February 17-19, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, TX, as well as in Arcules booth #31081 and Milestone booth #18053 during the 2020 ISC West Conference and Expo, March 17-20, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
