Eagle Eye Networks acquires Panasonic Cloud Management Services Europe BV

Cloud-based video surveillance Eagle Eye Networks has acquired Panasonic Cloud Management Services Europe BV (PCMSEU), whose flagship products are Panasonic Cameramanager and Panasonic Nubo. The two companies operate in the same market cloud-based video surveillance with Eagle Eye Networks the dominant force in North America and PCMSEU the clear European leader. PCMSEU operates more cloud-recorded cameras than any other company in Europe by some distance.

The acquisition of CMSEU gives Eagle Eye Networks a bridgehead into the European market and creates a truly global player in a still nascent cloud surveillance market that is growing at a much faster rate than the conventional DVR/NVR segment. Panasonic Cloud Management Services Europe BV will be renamed Eagle Eye Networks BV. Serving as the European headquarters for Eagle Eye, the European giant will now sell and support the expanded Eagle Eye product line. Our dealers in Europe have responded with overwhelming support for this acquisition. It will greatly enhance our sales and support efforts in the European market, said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. The strong and experienced team in cloud video surveillance at our new Eagle Eye EMEA headquarters will make it possible for us to provide a tremendous level of support to all of our dealers in the region.

The Eagle Eye NuboCam All PCMSEU employees will be retained following the deal. Cameramanager co-founders Rishi Lodhia and Tijmen Vos will remain with the company as managing director and technical director of Eagle Eye Networks EMEA respectively. Said Rishi Lodhia: This is a unique opportunity to bring two pioneers in cloud video surveillance together and deliver a broad portfolio of innovative cloud surveillance solutions. Eagle Eye and Cameramanager dealers worldwide will now have a wider selection of cloud video products to meet their customers needs. Panasonic Cameramanager, on which small and medium businesses can watch and manage live and recorded surveillance footage from their smartphone, will be renamed Eagle Eye CameraManager. Eagle Eye plans to expand global sales of CameraManager to meet demand for direct camera to cloud connectivity. CameraManager cloud surveillance products boast optional storage methods, motion detection, push notifications and cloud based video analytics. Lacking the onsite bridge device of the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS, the CameraManager solution can be more cost-effective for smaller camera counts per location. Eagle Eye Cameramanager Eagle Eye Networks BV will continue to sell Eagle Eye Cloud Security VMS in Europe to customers that prioritise camera interoperability and have high camera counts.

Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS supports more than 1,000 different digital cameras, over 10,000 different analogue cameras, up to 10 years of video retention and very large camera counts. Panasonic Nubo, which becomes Eagle Eye NuboCam, is an LTE camera and was the world s first mobile video monitoring surveillance camera when it launched in 2015. Datacenters Eagle Eye Networks operates datacenters in California, Texas, Canada, Japan (two), the UK and thanks to the acquisition two in the Netherlands.

Milestone Systems ties up partnership with Soliton Systems

mobile streaming Soliton Smart Telecaster Milestone Systems, the global leader in IP video management software (VMS), is partnering with mobile video streaming specialist Soliton Systems. Headquartered in Japan, Soliton develops live video streaming solutions for the public safety market. Its Smart telecaster range can stream real-time video over 3G and 4G LTE networks from remote locations via body-worn and other forms of mobile video cameras.

Cameras can live stream from fast-moving vehicles such as ambulances, fire trucks, police cars, motorcycles and helicopters or from a static location, such as a video surveillance van. The lightweight units are easy to carry on a person. Software that facilitates live streaming from a smartphone to a command centre, including GPS information can be downloaded from the App Store. H.265 encoding technology The Smart telecaster range uses H.265 encoding technology, which compresses real-time video for streaming over multiple 3G and 4G mobile networks simultaneously. More effectively than its predecessor, H.264, it can successfully operate even when mobile signal weakens. Founded in Denmark in 1998, Milestone Systems is one of the biggest players in the the global VMS market. Milestone, whichwas acquired by Canon for an undisclosed sum in 2014, was ranked as the number one global video management software provider by revenue in 2014. It is a great privilege for Soliton to work with Milestone, says Mogens Jensen, managing director at Soliton Systems Europe. Many of our public safety and emergency service customers already have Milestone so by partnering, this will allow them to manage their mobile video feeds from a central management console from the leading manufacturer of VMS solutions.

Says Henrik Sydbo Hansen, group manager of devices and integrations at Milestone Systems: Many of our integrations to date have been from static type cameras. Given Soliton s strength in live streaming from a mobile device, we see this as a natural extension of our own offering and something that many in the Milestone community have been requesting. VMS solutions from Milestone, whose architecture is open platform, can remotely manage a wide range of surveillance cameras, using event or alarm-based, continued or selective video streaming. Video can be secured for law enforcement and evidence storage. Thanks to Milestone s certification plan, third-party video surveillance systems and devices are readily integrated with Milestone platforms like XProtect. Soliton s H265 technology which is in line with our roadmap, and their commitment to ONVIF, a standard for video surveillance, gives us a synergy that not only works now, but provides a road-map in an industry that is constantly evolving, continues Hansen. We look forward to a successful and long partnership. Soliton Systems will be presenting at Milestone s upcoming MIP partner event in Dubai from 8-10 May 2017. Check out security solutions from Milestone Systems at IFSEC International, 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL.

US Demand for Private Security Services to Reach $63.8 Billion in …


6, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Demand for private contracted security services in the U.S. is projected to increase 5.2% annually to $63.8 billion in 2016.

The market will be supported by a high perceived risk of crime (from conventional violent and property crimes to white collar crimes and terrorism) and a concern that public safety officials are overburdened.

The outsourcing of security activities to contracted firms, instead of relying on in-house security, will support demand. The privatization of some public safety operations, such as guarding government facilities and correctional facilities management, will also boost gains.

Global Information Inc (GII) is pleased to present the latest market research on the global security industry.

Private Security Services Security services that capitalize on continuing technological developments hold especially good prospects. For instance, both security consulting and systems integration revenues will see above-average growth.

Security consultants and systems integrators are able to manage a wide variety of services when creating, upgrading or implementing security plans and when installing or upgrading complex electronic security devices. In addition, the trend toward more sophisticated and automated security electronics that are increasingly integrated with other building operations will boost growth for these services.

Close Protection Training | David Rubens Associates

Those people who know me know that CP training is one of my favourite activities. There is something about taking a group of people and turning them into a truly efficient CP team, not only able to stand around outside a restaurant whilst the Principal enjoys a good meal, but who are able to take the responsibility for all aspects of ensuring someone else’s safety, and the safety of their family, in a genuinely professional way, that gives an immediate pleasure that very few activities can give (at least, whilst keeping all of your clothes on!).

I run regular SIA CP courses in London, but have run similar courses in Sweden, Malta and recently in France, and have run CP operations in over thirty countries over the years, and it is always interesting to see how different people bring a different cultural understanding to how they operate as CP officers.

Feel free to make your own comments, and if anyone reading this has been on one of our courses (and besides the non-accredited courses, we have had over 400 people successfully pass the SIA programme with us since 2006), please let me know that you dropped in!
