Live Earth and Milestone Systems Launch Verified, Single-Use Platform

Live Earth Integrates with Milestone XProtect® to Provide Seamless Access to Live and Recorded Video on a Common Operational Picture

Live Earth and Milestone Systems Launch Verified Single Use Platform

Live Earth announces the release of a verified integrated solution with Milestone Systems, a world-leading provider of open platform IP video management software (VMS). The enhanced integration provides seamless access to live and recorded video within a common operational picture.  

“Our partnership with Milestone and integration of Live Earth within their XProtect platform is a continuation of our focus on technology solutions that leverage the best platforms to provide safety and security,” said Craig Johnston, Live Earth’s VP of Business Development. “Our seamless integration allows users to leverage the strengths of both systems enabling faster response to situations as they develop.” 

Live Earth is the world’s most advanced real-time data visualization platform. The Live Earth analysis engine seamlessly fuses millions of disparate data sources from sensors and systems globally. Both Live Earth and Milestone integrate easily with a wide range of third party applications which emphasizes the importance of open platform solutions.

The Live Earth and Milestone XProtect® solution is achieved with Live Earth’s cloud API and XProtect’s MIP SDK. It is ready to use with an out-of-the-box data package that gives users instant insights into traffic, transportation, and weather in correlation with their VMS. Users can easily enhance their live and recorded video by incorporating other GIS or static layers through advanced features and tools within the Live Earth platform. Users can quickly turn on and off data layers from a Live Layers panel to gain a better understanding of events.

The integrated single platform solution also provides users with real-time alerting and incident management capabilities so users “find out first” when predefined scenarios occur within a single data source or when multiple data sources interact. They can act fast and immediately take action to respond from the incident management panel. Additionally, the interactive timeline allows users the ability to go back in time to view rendered data and video almost immediately to reconstruct historical and relevant events from different viewpoints to gain a deeper understanding.

“There are great benefits in seeing live video in the context of other real-time data feeds such as weather, traffic, and transportation, for a more thorough understanding of the moving parts around their operations,” said Brad Eck, Community Program Owner at Milestone Systems, Inc. “System operators can evaluate data from different perspectives to unlock valuable information. Clicking into the Milestone VMS directly from Live Earth quickly identifies problems as they surface and helps resolve issues by analyzing recorded footage.”

The Live Earth and Milestone Systems collaboration successfully implements seamless access to live and recorded video across a wide variety of industries. The power of open platform solutions gives organizations and agencies the flexibility to grow their current technology systems and adopt new ones in the future.
