Developers Around the World: Innovate! Your Solution Can Win the Milestone Kickstarter Contest

Milestone Systems aims to help the world see how to protect people and assets and optimize business. With the Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest, software developers everywhere are invited to create new solutions that will make the world a better place.

Milestone Systems has built an open platform for vision-based software to work with applications that create benefits across areas such as security, transportation, emergency response, traffic optimization, healthcare and even wildlife improvements. The Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest is a unique opportunity for coders, developers, individuals and organizations to discover new applications and capabilities that can plug in to the XProtect video management software (VMS) product family.

“Milestone Systems enables an open platform community that drives collaboration and innovation in the development and use of network video technology,” says Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, Chief Technology Officer at Milestone. “We believe that developers will change the world. Our MIP SDK can help them do this. It offers developers the opportunity to innovate with new solutions using our powerful VMS platform as the engine.”

The winning concept can be an integration, added functionality, widget or code that extends the use of VMS in any useful capacity. Participating developers can create a visual tool, a device trigger, a base for analyzing data or to measure information that can be applied in new ways. The two requirements are that the solution is integrated with the Milestone XProtect VMS, (and likely using the MIP SDK), and that the idea must be the contestant’s own intellectual property.

“We see technology as a tool. We believe that great things can come from offering our open platform software to a world of innovators to make their imaginations tangible. We are open to innovation and looking for solutions as yet unseen that can make the world a better place,” says Community Engagement Manager Jasleen Rehal, Milestone Systems.

Three finalists will be given free entry and an exhibitor booth at the annual Milestone Integration Platform Symposium event (MIPS) in 2020, where the winner will be announced and rewarded with a prize valued at USD 65,000.

Innovators may post questions about integration challenges on the Milestone Developer Forum. For entry, email your idea attached to your registration form by November 29, 2019:
