The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution a combination of the Arcules VSaaS integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate on-premise VMS.
COPENHAGEN — Arcules, a provider of integrated video and access control Cloud services, recently announced the commercial availability of the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution in North America.
The solution represents a combination of the Arcules Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate on-premise video management software (VMS). The result is said to be a flexible and feature-rich hybrid video surveillance solution well-suited for organizations looking to centralize their dispersed video surveillance operations.
With Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution, 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, according to the company.
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 customers are planning their deployment to take advantage of the many benefits of Cloud computing. This integration gives Milestone XProtect Corporate customers a new hybrid Cloud computing deployment option,” says Bjørn 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 utilize these Arcules 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, according to the company.
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, and the web and mobile clients.
The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution is also said to add value to monitoring stations and law enforcement organizations that use XProtect Corporate as their VMS platform. Such organizations 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,” says 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.”
