Copenhagen / Israel – 16 September, 2009 – BriefCam, Ltd., a developer and provider of Video Synopsis systems for reviewing, analyzing and indexing surveillance camera content, announces its support of Milestone XProtect Corporate 3.0, released today.

Milestone is the world’s leading open platform company for IP video management software. Milestone XProtect Corporate is powerful, open platform IP video management software designed for large-scale implementations, supporting unlimited cameras, users and sites. Version 3.0 offers new mapping and Smart Wall functionality with dynamic, interactive controls and hardware independence. The XProtect Smart Wall is ideal for command center operations viewing massive volumes of video, round the clock.

BriefCam’s Video Synopsis is a unique image-processing technology that creates a summary of original full-length surveillance video and gives users the ability to review hours of footage in just a few minutes. Video Synopsis (VS) enables the rapid review and indexing of captured video footage — with an index to the original source video, real-time video feed online and archival video footage offline — for on-the-spot event tracking, forensics and evidence discovery. The BriefCam VS line of products provide a complete representation of all events occurring during 24 hours of video footage in a very condensed clip, as short as a few minutes. The synopsis is made possible by simultaneously presenting multiple objects and activities that have occurred at different times.

“The BriefCam integration with Milestone XProtect Corporate demonstrates the clear benefit of our open platform. We are very excited they are developing this solution interoperability,” said Martin Kaufmann, MSP Program Manager at Milestone Systems. “Big command centers and large sites will be able to save a lot of time with the fast video summary presentation, on demand. Instead of simply ‘Fast Forwarding’, Video Synopsis is an elegant new method that makes it possible to review all video feed in its entirety at actual playing speed.”

“In May, BriefCam announced an integration partnership with Milestone and promised to work closely with Milestone to give people the tools they need to achieve rapid results. By utilizing the Milestone Software Development Kit and APIs, BriefCam is now making good on that pledge,” Gideon Ben-Zvi, chairman and president of BriefCam said. “Milestone XProtect customers are now able to utilize BriefCam’s first-of-its-kind technology that allows for one day of surveillance camera footage to be summarized into as little as a few minutes, enabling the rapid review and indexing of captured video. BriefCam provides an easy-to-use solution to the problem plaguing security organizations around the world: hours, days and weeks of recorded video that goes unwatched – until it’s too late. Now they can browse hours in minutes, get better evidence faster, and with lower manpower costs.”

BriefCam VS imports and processes video from the systems commonly used by law enforcement, government agencies, educational facilities, municipalities and loss prevention organizations.

Both companies will be presenting at ASIS 2009, September 21-24, 2009 at the Milestone booth 4445.
