Collaborative Milestone Experience Centre opens in Melbourne.

MILESTONE Systems has opened its new Milestone Experience Centre at the company’s new regional headquarters in Melbourne, Australia.

The Experience Centre will offer partners and customers an interactive, hands-on experience, which allows them to try different options and pick the best security solution for their needs.

“This is a world-leading innovation, which will allow partners, service providers and customers the opportunity to define exactly what they need in a security solution, see first-hand what all the permutations will look like, then walk away with exactly what they need – all from the one location,” said Jordan Cullis, country manager for South Pacific at Milestone.

The Experience Centre will be an open, collaborative space featuring technology from Milestone Systems as well as nine partner vendors. Interactive displays will allow stakeholders to get a ‘hands-on’ feel for their solution as it evolves.

“If you’re looking at cameras, we can offer different solutions for a vast array of divergent needs,” Cullis said. “If you think analytics might be worth a look, we can show you how to get maximum value out of your video data. And if you need to see how facial recognition will work with your solution, we will add it to the mix right in front of you. This is an unparalleled opportunity to get a tailor-made video surveillance solution.”

Experts in each field will take up residence at the Experience Centre, on hand to walk stakeholders through each step of the planning and deployment process. Vendors involved include:

* Allied Telesis – providing network infrastructure
* Axis Communications – cameras
* Dell – servers
* Hikvision – cameras
* Imagus – facial Recognition software
* Inner Range – access control and security solutions
* Ipsotek – video analytics
* Mobotix – cameras
* Promise – storage solutions.

According to country manager ANZ for Axis Communications, Wai King Wong, the collaboration is an important step for security in the region.

“The collaborative Milestone Experience Centre gives us an unprecedented opportunity to work together and bring new levels of flexibility and innovation to the industry,” Wong said. “Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and this is a big step towards harnessing that power and bringing it to market in a convenient and effective manner.”
