Cernium Corporation Integrates Perceptrak Intelligent Video Application with Milestone IP
May 6, 2008
Leading video analytics provider becomes a Milestone Solution Partner to offer seamless, integrated, intelligent video solution.
Cernium Corporation, a leading developer of video analytics-enabled products, is now a Milestone Solutions Partner with Milestone Systems, a leading developer of open platform IP video management software. Cernium’s Perceptrak software application is now integrated with the Milestone XProtect Enterprise IP video platform to deliver a seamless solution that provides full-spectrum analytics capabilities to enterprise-class IP video surveillance installations.
"Analytics is an essential tool for proactive video surveillance and should be available on every camera, all the time," said Craig Chambers, President and CEO of Cernium Corporation. "The integration of Perceptrak with XProtect delivers an unprecedented combination of power, flexibility and ease of operation at an affordable cost that allows analytics everywhere."
The new Perceptrak features Cernium's field-proven P-Core™ video analytics engine operating in the company's High Density Analytics Server™ configuration. P-Core enables any combination of behaviors to be detected on any camera and adapts to a wide range of environments and security policies for real-time, automated 24x7 monitoring. By also adding meta-tags to user-defined events of interest, Perceptrak can retrieve relevant video from servers within seconds to support investigations, mitigate risk or manage business operations.
The Milestone XProtect platform is a robust IP video management solution designed for any size enterprise. It optimizes bandwidth usage and scales to handle any number of cameras. Reliable and easy to use, XProtect allows operators to centrally, locally or remotely view live or recorded video to manage thousands of surveillance cameras from multiple locations simultaneously. Perceptrak works seamlessly within this environment to offer powerful analytics capabilities that help achieve safety and security objectives.
“The market is demanding surveillance capabilities that are easy to manage, and analytics leverage optimal use of video content for even greater return on investment,” said Eric Fullerton, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Milestone Systems. “Both Milestone and Cernium use open standards that allow for such value-added integrated operability, running on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware with unlimited scalability for a flexible, future-proof solution.”
Premiered at ISC West, the integrated Perceptrak-XProtect solution will be showcased again at IFSEC (12-15 May), at the Milestone stand 19171.
