Mobile video streaming specialist Soliton in tie up with leading VMS solutions provider, Milestone
Manufacturer of mobile video streaming solutions, Soliton Systems, has announced a partnership with leader in VMS technology, Milestone Systems. According to Soliton, the deal will see Milestone benefit from Soliton's live mobile streaming capabilities, while Soliton's customers will have the ability to manage their mobile video feeds from a central management console from the leading manufacturer of VMS solutions.
Soliton Systems is a Japanese specialist in mobile live streaming video which manufactures solutions for the public safety market. Its Smart telecaster range of products can be utilised with body-worn or other types of mobile video cameras.
Soliton´s Smart telecaster works with a range of different cameras that can be placed in moving vehicles such as ambulances, fire trucks, police cars, motorcycles and helicopters. It can live stream at speed, or from a static location such as a video surveillance van, Soliton said.
The lightweight units can be carried on a person allowing streaming from body worn cameras for applications such as facial recognition. In addition, software can be downloaded from the App Store that allows live streaming direct from a smartphone back to a command centre inclusive of GPS information.
Milestone Systems is a leading VMS solution provider and has many global customers remotely managing surveillance cameras with an array of management functionality.
Mogens Jensen, the Managing Director of Soliton Systems Europe commented:
“It is a great privilege for Soliton to work with Milestone. Many of our public safety and emergency service customers already have Milestone so by partnering, this will allow them to manage their mobile video feeds from a central management console from the leading manufacturer of VMS solutions.”
The Smart telecaster range of products utilises H.265 encoding technology that efficiently compresses real-time video for streaming over multiple 3G and 4G mobile networks simultaneously. As it is the next generation of H.265, as oppose to H.264, it can successfully operate even when mobile signal becomes weak to provide reliable high quality video.
Henrik Sydbo Hansen, Group Manager of Devices & Integrations at Milestone Systems added:
“Many of our integrations to date have been from static type cameras. Given Soliton’s strength in live streaming from a mobile device, we see this as a natural extension of our own offering and something that many of our clients have been requesting.”
With Milestone’s open platform architecture, users have an array of management functions allowing for a more efficient administration from a mix of different IP video surveillance and CCTV cameras. It allows cameras to be remotely managed and can include continued or selective video streaming that can be event or alarm based, maps of locations, and securing video for law enforcement and for storing for evidence. Milestone's certification plan allows for third party systems and devices within the video surveillance eco system to be integrated to guarantee interoperability allowing for customers to take advantage of innovative and new technology as they come to market.
“Soliton’s H265 technology which is in line with our roadmap, and their commitment to ONVIF, a standard for video surveillance, gives us a synergy that not only works now, but provides an innovative road-map in an industry that is constantly evolving. We look forward to a successful and long partnership.”
Soliton Systems will be presenting at Milestone’s upcoming MIPS EMEA partner event in Dubai from 8 May – 10 May 2017.
