Milestone Video Chosen For Architectural Landmark

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, November 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Norwegian Property ASA makes the move from analog to digital security

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has been chosen as the surveillance solution for Aker Brygge, an iconic architectural landmark owned by Norwegian Property, and a top destination for living, working, shopping, dining and entertainment in the center of Oslo.

In partnership with Dell and Last Mile Communication, the installation partner LT Sikkerhet has won the project to provide Norwegian Property ASA with an upgrade of their security solution from analog technology to a networked solution for the Aker Brygge area. When Norwegian Property evaluated the tenders, Milestone XProtect® Corporate VMS was chosen as the best-in-class solution.

Aker Brygge is currently protected by approximately 100 analog cameras running on digital video recorder (DVR) units. However, the Norwegian Property management required a future-proof solution that is more flexible and robust in terms of performance, reliability and scalability. LT Sikkerhet was appointed to be the contractor, and the solution is being installed in Q4 of this year.

"Our design is based on the requirement for a robust, high-performance solution that can be further enhanced by IP cameras as the system naturally grows," states Magne Jahr of LT Sikkerhet.

The solution is based on a 10GB backbone network, with SAN storage from Dell. Conversion from the analog cameras to digital video managed by the Milestone XProtect ® VMS is made with video encoders that allow high-speed capture of video 24/7 and control of pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras. All servers and clients are hosted in a local data center and operators access the Milestone XProtect ® Smart Client on a hardware-accelerated zero client solution offering the best possible working climate.

"Future proofing the solution is leveraged by adding a five-year Milestone support plan to the offering and by utilizing off-the-shelf server hardware for flexible scalability in terms of disk input/output and storage capacity plus failover redundancy," states Magne Jahr of LT Sikkerhet.

Aker Brygge has been a landmark in Oslo since its beginnings in 1854 as a shipping yard run by Aker Mekaniske Verksted, the source of its name. In 1982 the shipyard was decommissioned, and the property was transformed into Oslo's most attractive piece of real estate with a pleasurable mix of dockside offices, a conference center, numerous retail and other commercial concerns, indoor parking for 1,600 vehicles, a marina and almost 400 condominiums. The area's uniqueness comes from its closeness to the Oslo fjord while still being just a stroll from the city center.

Aker Brygge offers many activities and festivals in addition to a rich variety of entertainment. It  covers 260,000 square meters of real estate that includes shopping in more than 60 stores or food and drink from 35 establishments - all in a unique location by the sea. More than 12 million visitors find their way to Aker Brygge every year. It is not a shopping mall but more like a small city within the city. By 2015 Aker Brygge will stand totally renewed with a fully modernized interior along with enhancements to the seaside promenade and pier.
