Global video technology company Milestone Systems is to merge with the cloud-based video surveillance solutions provider, Arcules —reuniting them again after seven years.

The merger brings together Milestone and Arcules’ capabilities within video management software (VMS), video analytics and Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS), providing a complete video technology offering.

A Vision for the Future

The VSaaS market is predicted to grow rapidly while Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creating new possibilities that were not possible just a year ago. By adding Arcules to Milestone’s product line, the company is better positioned to thrive in the video technology software industry.

The merger represents a transformative leap, combining robust video management with the agility and scalability of the cloud, the promise of leveraging AI and the desire to pioneer advancements in the booming VSaaS market.

With the rise of AI, the joint companies have the potential to derive insights from video data and support decision intelligence. The merger aims to exploit the rapidly changing AI landscape from on premise to cloud as both Milestone and Arcules have long worked with video analytics.

Common DNA

Based in California, USA, Arcules was spun out from Milestone in 2017. The decision to reunite the companies is driven by a shared vision to deliver intelligent, data-driven video technology that empowers customers to make better decisions and optimize their operations.

Thomas Jensen, CEO of Milestone Systems, said: “Milestone and Arcules have a strong existing partnership and a common DNA. By uniting and working as one, we can provide a world-class offering that suits many different needs and gives customers greater freedom of choice. As one company, we will shape the future of open platform video technology.”

Andreas Pettersson, CEO of Arcules, said: “We are excited to rejoin Milestone, a global leader and trusted partner. This merger will accelerate our growth and innovation, delivering greater value to our customers and partners. Together, we are committed to realizing our vision of empowering people, businesses and societies through intelligent video solutions.”

The merger is scheduled to be finalized by the end of 2024.

Charging and Storing Lithium-Ion Batteries Correctly

Lithium-ion batteries offer many advantages. They are long lasting, have a high energy density and are only slightly self-discharging. The batteries are therefore particularly practical for many devices in the industrial sector as well as in security technology. However, one thing should always be borne in mind: Lithium and many of its compounds are highly flammable and highly reactive. Certified and GS-tested type 90 safety cabinet models enable the highest safety requirements to be met when storing and charging lithium-ion batteries.
