Arcules announced the commercial availability of the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution in North America and Europe. 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).

Arcules’ 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 on-boarding.

“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,” said Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, CTO of Milestone Systems, in a statement. “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 XProtect Corporate product capabilities.”

The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution uses Milestone Interconnect technology to combine the scalability and licensing flexibility of Arcules cloud service with the video management functions of XProtect Corporate, according to the companies. The combination of these provide 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 solution also enables organizations to better manage their operational costs as a result of flexible pricing schemes and minimal hardware requirements.”
